Larry Csonka and Torklift General Manager Jay Taylor
It’s not everyday an NFL legend stops by our manufacturing facility. When word spread through our offices that the one and only Larry Csonka would be paying us a visit, admittedly we were a bit star-struck.
Larry of course, was the star running back of the epic 1972 Miami Dolphins – the only NFL team in history to go undefeated in a season. So what brought Larry, “the Zonk” to Torklift?

Larry uses Torklift truck camper accessories on his rig. Specifically he secures his truck camper to his truck with our truck camper tie downs and FastGun truck camper turnbuckles. He was interested to see where the products are made at Torklift. He took a tour of our facility and made the day of every football fan on our team.
Larry was nice enough to bring his truck along to help us with the development of a new fitment of our soon-to-be released for order GlowStep Revolution for truck campers.
GlowStep Revolution is currently available for pre-order for travel trailers and 5th wheel camper trailers.
As a much larger gentleman of gridiron glory, we explained to Larry that GlowStep Revolution is designed to eliminate the “diving board” effect of other RV scissor steps and RV flip up steps by creating a secure connection between the RV and the ground. For a guy Larry’s size that made a name for himself running over pro football players, the more stable his RV steps the better!
Big thanks to "the Zonk” for making our day at Torklift. You can see what Larry is up to, from his incredible story as an NFL player to his outdoor adventures in Alaska on his official website here.
