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.

They also come with glow adhesive that with just 5 minutes of light they will Glow up to 10 hours, so you’ll never miss a step, even at night!

If you don’t believe us on just how easy it is to find and use the right size of steps for your specific RV, just browse through our GlowStep Revolution, GlowStep and Stow N' Go pages. 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."

How much does the GlowStep Revolution cost?

 

GSR Blog 1The GlowStep Revolution is the first and only patented step system designed for all RV towables that is versatile and flexible to adapt to any type of terrain. The step entry system is revolutionary for several reasons. Featuring 7 inches of precision elevation adjustment, the GlowStep Revolution has 3 positions of upper adjustment between the RV entry and top step, plus an additional 5 positions of lower adjustment with the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet. As the only step in the world that features this patented and unique level of adjustment at both the top and the bottom of the step system, this step allows all options for accommodating any terrain.

Step series: 
Two Step System - Starting at $490.00 
Three Step System - Starting at $540.99 
Four Step System - Starting at $586.99 
Five Step System - Starting at $624.99 
Six Step System - Starting at $653.99

GSR Blog 2

The most common application is the 27.5-inch four step series part number A8004. This is because most fifth wheels sit at the same height, the only difference is the length and the layout. The prices of the steps are the same for both the 25.5-inch and the 27.5-inch width models.

To determine the cost of your GlowStep Revolution, first find out how many steps you need. So how do you determine your fit?

Measurements to determine fit of GlowStep Revolution 
1) Dimension A: Measure the width between your factory mounting brackets 
2) Dimension B: Measure from the top of the step opening to the ground If you have a non-removable bracket to determine how many steps you will need, then there is an extra measurement you have to take to ensure a proper fit: 

GSR Blog 3

3) Dimension C: Measure from the top of the step opening to the bottom of the stored step This measurement is to make sure that when the set of steps are compressed that they will fit properly into the storage compartment.

GSR Blog 4

Torklift has designed two parts that will help to achieve a seamless installation of the GlowStep Revolution. Almost 100% of GlowStep Revolution RV steps are a direct bolt-on with no modification required, but just in case you find yourself with a very unique RV, here is some additional details to consider.

GlowStep Revolution Spacer Kit 
This kit achieves installation of the GlowStep Revolution step system in applications where the width between factory mounting brackets on your towable is between or larger than the standard factory measurement of 27.5 inches or 25.5 inches (very uncommon). This kit includes four ¼ inch thick steel spacer plates with longer hardware.

GlowStep Revolution Vertical Stud Adapter Bracket 
The GlowStep Revolution Vertical Stud Adapter Bracket is made specifically for trailers without vertical brackets that extend out perpendicular from the trailers frame or "predrilled step frame outrigger mounting brackets" to install the GlowStep Revolution. The Vertical Stud Adapter Bracket is attached underneath your step opening allowing the GlowStep Revolution to bolt directly to the bracket.

Top 3 reasons why you need GlowStep Revolution? 
Aside from the extensive adjustability the GlowStep Revolution step for towables provides, there are several reasons why these steps will make you one happy camper. Here’s some points to consider: 

#1) Avoid getting Dumped with Dirt 
Imagine going to stow your steps and having to thrust a heavy unit above your head, only to get flung with dirt and debris that covers your clothes and gets stuck in your hair. With GlowStep Revolution, this scenario will never be a reality. The easy bolt-on installation fits into the factory step compartment, replacing factory steps. Since the steps are installed in the factory compartment, they remain conveniently outside the RV. Drawbridge style steps that fold up and store inside the unit dump dirt, water, sand and other unwanted debris all over you and inside your RV.  If you’re looking to avoid any unnecessary mess, the GlowStep Revolution steps are the right option for you.

#2) Don’t Get Stuck Between a Rock and a Hard Place 
With your trailer or fifth wheel, it’s no doubt you’ll encounter a multitude of obstacles. Whether it’s a tight campground space, a narrow storage area or simply pulling through a gas station. If you want to access the inside of your unit, it’s typical to just open the door and store any last minute groceries, camping gear, etc. For those that opt with drawbridge style steps, you’ll find that it’s not as easy to deploy the steps in tight spaces since clearance will be the deciding factor. Also, you’ll find your access to entry opening will be completely blocked. With GlowStep Revolution you can enjoy the simple pleasures of parking wherever you want and accessing your unit at any time. The multi-link hinge design easily extends to accommodate tight space constraints so it doesn’t matter how close you park to structures, trees, service bays or inside of a storage facility. 

GlowStep Revolution Storage

#3) Skip the extra drilling! 
In contrast to steps that drill into the vinyl and wood of the RV’s entry threshold, GlowStep Revolution steps are completely bolt-on to the RV’s frame. This avoids vulnerability to possible water damage from drilling holes, and upholds the value and integrity of your RV. Another plus? Available ranging from two to six steps, steps can easily be added and removed so you can take the GlowStep Revolution step entry system with you when you trade in for your next RV.

GSR Blog 5Handcrafted and manufactured from 100% lightweight aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel, GlowStep Revolution will meet any of your RV step needs. This step system also has safety features built in like the SureGrip step tread and self-illuminating feature that keeps the steps glowing in the dark for up to ten hours with only five minutes of light exposure.

 

The GlowStep Revolution is proudly made in the USA and comes with our Legendary Lifetime Warranty. For more information click here, email our Tech Support at: support at torklift.com or give us a call us at 800.246.8132.

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!

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
