With our innovative design on our All Terrain Landing Gear, no more diving board like effect. On many campers have hanging steps that are unsafe, un-sturdy, and they shake the whole trailer when you walk up and down them. With the GlowStep Revolution we find the perfect match just for your specific trailer so there is no more shaking.

We also offer accessories to make life much easier, such as our GlowGuide Handrail, or our DirtDestroyer to keep that dirt and grime out of your RV. We also have what we call the SafeStep it’s a pet safety barrier to keep your fur babies safe from falling.

We have many videos of happy customers using them!I finally broke down and bought a 4 step GlowStep from Torklift. I love this thing. Its light and the steps glow in the dark. It folds up nice and I can store it inside one of my storage bays. What a difference going up and down a decent set of steps compared to those "death trap" steps that the factories put on."

Want More Torklift Fan Mail? Your Wish Is Our Command!

image5Continuing in our “rooftop celebrations” of fan mail similar to Gary McNally’s letter to us, we wanted to share another wonderful letter that came to us from Colorado! Instead of going with ladder/drawbridge-style entryway stored-steps that allow mud, water, salt and other debris to get inside the RV and instead of staying with his factory RV steps, using a RV booster step or choosing another aftermarket RV step system, Brian chose to install the GlowStep Revolution:

“I just purchased and installed the revolution 4-step setup and took our first trip with them, for a week-long trip for spring break, down to Santa Fe, NM. After using them for a full week, which included two kids, two dogs and us two adults, there are some excellent attributes I wanted to send to you.” 
                                                                                – Brian Bleile

Below is a broken down list of Brian’s favorite features of these adjustable trailer steps along with more information about these unique RV steps.

All Terrain Landing Gear
The GlowStep Revolution step system is the first RV step for towables that is versatile and flexible to adapt to any type of terrain. With the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet, your RV scissor steps connect firmly to ground level and eliminate the unsafe diving board feeling associated with factory trailer steps.


“First off, the landing legs design is absolutely outstanding!! I’m not a disbeliever in the 3-step, steel steps normally found in new trailers today but the fact that there is a very solid “foot” on your steps REALLY keep the trailer from rocking and bouncing when the kids and dogs are running up and down the steps, in and out, 30 times a day. This is truly the best-attribute of these steps.”

–Brian Bleile

The All Terrain Landing Gear leveling feet for RV steps aren’t the only addition available for this step system. There are also accessories that make a complete cleaning and safety support system for your steps. There is the GlowGuide Handrail to make getting in and out of your RV easier and safer, the SafeStep barrier for pet friendly steps and DirtDestroyer which is a shoe cleaning attachment.

Made from Aluminum
The second aspect of the steps that Brian notes is the fact that the GlowStep Revolution steps are made of 100% lightweight aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel.

“The second best design item is the aluminum construction. Again, very well designed, built and assembled. Also very solid, they don’t flex or move under my weight (220 Lbs.) and definitely removed over 25 Lbs. of weight from my old steel steps. They’re super easy to put-away and stow! Again, a testament to your design.” 
–Brian Bleile

We couldn’t have said it any better ourselves Brian!

05. GlowStep Revolution

Tread Pattern
These trailer steps also use our SureGrip step tread to eliminate the jagged holes commonly found on factory steps. Brian said in his letter that, “the tread pattern on the step provides excellent traction and really helped remove those stubborn goat-heads from our shoes after walking the NM trails!” Great for pets and great for removing goat heads from shoes, the GlowStep Revolution is Brian Bleile approved!

Overall, Brian is incredibly happy with his GlowStep Revolution RV steps. Finishing his letter, he states:

“Again, an outstanding design and execution of a 4-step, aluminum, step! The grounded feet design is truly the best feature in a step that anyone could get today. I say congratulations to you!!” 
– Brian Bleile

Trailer Step Mods: Torklift International’s GlowStep Revolution step system

Happy kidsWhile camping is fun at any age, the best outdoor experiences always seem to stem from roughing it in your childhood. Everything is fun when you’re younger -- even the ‘diving-board’ effect you feel when stepping onto the factory steps of an RV or trailer. Why? It almost seems like a trampoline launch pad while in the throes of one’s childhood imagination.

But alas as we grow older, wobbly RV factory steps become nerve wrecking and adding a booster step becomes necessity. Not just to avoid hip pain or sciatica flare ups when the first step starts to seem too high, but to keep children from hurting themselves. If you’re not careful, once you and your family settle into your trailer you might end up staying inside to avoid the steps—and we all know that being indoors defeats the purpose of camping. Don’t let faulty trailer steps inhibit your experience. If only there was a company that specialized in adjustable trailer steps…

GlowStep Revolution - scissor step for trailers

Torklift International was listening and created a solution. The GlowStep Revolution step system is the first leveling scissor step of its kind for trailer and towable applications.

all terrain landing gear

The secret of the GlowStep Revolution’s durability is its uniquely engineered hinge design, where the bushing bearings are bolted for maximum stability and longevity. Our design uses specialty phenolic washers on each hinge, making deploying and stowing the steps smooth and seamless. What sets these steps apart from any other trailer steps on the market is its 7 inches of vertical step elevation adjustment.

Choose from three positions of elevation for the top step. This determines the ideal plane from the top step to your trailer entry. The All Terrain Landing Gear provides even more adjustment options on the base of the steps. Set the step landing gear individually to accommodate any uneven terrain.

RV Step FailAvoid unsafe trailer booster stepGlowStep Revolution’s All Terrain Landing Gear ensures level step configuration and supreme stability by eliminating the unsafe diving board effect. The steps connect Earth to RV so your trailer step system is firmly rooted and stable on ground level. Included with the GlowStep Revolution, the All Terrain Landing Gear can also be purchased separately and added to the original GlowStep for truck camper applications.

When you’ve installed GlowStep Revolution on your trailer, say goodbye to the dreaded booster step and hello to peace of mind with its lightweight, rust free aircraft grade aluminum build and glow in the dark capabilities (up to 10 hours with only five minutes of light exposure).

GlowStep Revolution Options

If that’s not enough, here is what else you can expect from Torklift International’s GlowStep Revolution:

• Available from 2-6 steps based on your application needs
• The GlowStep Revolution system is compatible with all sorts accessories: handrail (for extra stability), pet safety barriers and the DirtDestroyer shoe cleaning attachment
• Securely stows into place via locking mechanism
• Covered by Torklift International’s Legendary Lifetime Warranty
• Proudly made in the USA

Click here to see RVers give their first-hand accounts on how the GlowStep Revolution compares to traditional factory trailer steps. Perhaps one of the most endearing compliments we’ve received comes from RV.net forum member “Tequila.”

Tequilas Trailer Prior To GlowStepTequila's Trailer Prior to installing the GlowStep RevolutionDuring Tequila’s installation of the GlowStep Revolution, the service technicians revealed that the welds holding original factory steps to his travel trailer were starting to crack and break. No doubt Tequila was blessed with good timing considering he had only owned his trailer for a year. Thanks to the GlowStep Revolution installation, a potential crisis was averted and Tequila has only positive things to say about his revolutionary trailer steps:

 “I must say I am impressed… It is nice to have stable steps, especially when carrying loads in and out of the trailer. All in all, one of the best mods I have done to my trailer. They are a winner. They certainly attract attention in RV parks.”  - Tequila

RVStepFailTorklift International’s GlowStep Revolution is the Ultimate Step System and the first step toward fixing all your factory step problems. You can find an #RVStepFAIL almost anywhere you look. If you or a friend find yourselves dealing with clearly unsafe or dysfunctional factory steps, or happen to stumble (pun intended) across some while camping, we want to know about them.
