Seattle RV Show Seminar Schedule

The Main Attraction… The GlowStep Revolution!
Do you hate sweeping constant dirt and debris out of your RV?
What is stability and safety worth to you?
How important is easy access to your unit?


You will see up close and personal at the Torklift trailer and participating dealers this high-quality step system, made right here in America, that provides unparalleled stability and requires no heavy lifting to operate. Featuring seven inches of precision elevation adjustment, the GlowStep Revolution has three positions of upper adjustment between the RV entry and top step, plus an additional five positions of lower adjustment with the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet. 

Accommodating to tight spaces, the GlowStep Revolution steps are easy on the knees and back and connect the RV to the ground eliminating the unsafe diving board effect and clunky booster 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 fling and dump dirt, water, sand and other unwanted debris all over you and inside your RV. With GlowStep Revolution steps, avoid any unnecessary mess and stress.

The following participating dealers have the GlowStep Revolution installed on their units – making it easy for you to go see the steps and try them out yourself:

• Roy Robinson RV Center - Booths X & North Y
• Apache Camping Center - Booths J & K

Start your year off on the right foot by learning all you can about RVing and visit the Seattle RV Show 2018. With new and used RVs, product demonstrations, seminars and activities for the family – you are sure to find something new and exciting for your next trip.

Torklift’s HiddenPower
HiddenPowerHiddenPower does not affect
ground clearance

In the world of the modern RV, energy efficient electrical systems are essential. There is nothing more frustrating than driving somewhere, only to suffer sudden and unpredictable battery failure. At the Seattle RV Show, learn about the HiddenPower under vehicle hidden battery mount, our universal battery tray for all types of Group 24, 27 and 31 twelve volt batteries (including lead acid, AGM, sealed and gel cell).


Under Vehicle Battery MountUnder vehicle

At the booth, visually learn how to significantly extend the time you’re able to run your 12-volt systems by recharging through your existing solar panels, generators and converters. By adding the HiddenPower Wire Harness, directly wire your truck or RV into the extra battery. You’re able to avoid wasting fuel by powering accessories without turning your truck engine on.

When you see us at the show, don’t forget to ask us about installation. The HiddenPower is engineered to include no-drill installations with a quick disconnect feature so you can quickly detach the battery for service and maintenance. Attend the Seattle RV Show for more details on the HiddenPower battery storage tray.

Find a solution for your suspension with StableLoads

Do you often tow or haul heavy loads? If you’re visiting us at the Seattle RV show, you’re probably no rookie when it comes to pulling a load or two behind your truck. One thing’s for certain -- the feeling of your load controlling your truck and not you isn’t something anyone wants to experience. Some of the problems drivers often encounter when hauling or towing heavier loads include excessive side-to-side sway, porpoising and body roll. If you’re looking for a way to improve your vehicle’s suspension, look no further than the StableLoad suspension stablilizer. 

    Leaf Springs StableLoads

At the Seattle RV Show we’ll illustrate the science behind the StableLoad Suspension Stabilizer and how it’s able to dramatically improve vehicle handling characteristics by "pre-activating" the overload leaf springs. StableLoads tap into the primary function the vehicle manufacturers intended, maintaining four-point suspension. Click here to see how the StableLoad measures up to other aftermarket suspension products.

If you’re a veteran of towing and hauling, why else should you consider StableLoads?

• StableLoads are designed with a “quad contact” design that complements the manufacturer’s four-point suspension, as opposed to reducing it to two points of contact with all other rear suspension products 
• StableLoads have the ability to be turned on and off in seconds – engage the StableLoads when in tow/haul mode, disengage or turn them off when not towing or hauling so you can enjoy your smooth factory suspension 
• Quick, no-drill installation available

StableLoadStableLoads come in a set of four to outfit one vehicle

SuperHitch your Ride
What are you towing? Whether it be a fancy boat, travel trailer, toy hauler or flatbed trailer, you’ll want to discover the SuperHitch Outlaw Series. At the Seattle RV Show, we’re excited to have the crowned jewel of the Outlaw series on display: the SuperHitch Magnum 30K. Also see how the SuperTruss Receiver Extension is the safest and strongest towing extension on the market.
TowingSuperHitch and SuperTruss allow you to tow and haul at the same time

The SuperHitch Series includes:

SuperHitch Magnum 30K -- 3,000 lbs tongue weight, 30,000 lbs pull*
SuperHitch Original 20K -- 2,000 lbs tongue weight, 20,000 pounds pull*

*When used with weight distribution. 

When at the Seattle RV Show, take a close look at the design features of the SuperHitch. Ask us how our design prevents “egging” (common elongation from rigors of heavy towing). We’ll be happy to share with you each and every benefit the SuperHitch Outlaw Series offers, providing you with the safest towing experience you can trust and depend on.

Turnbuckle Up
Not only do we have trailers and towing covered, Torklift International is also the number one source for truck camper equipment. Keeping your truck camper secured properly to your truck is crucial. The combination of truck camper tie downs and turnbuckles plays a huge part in how effectively you’re hauling your camper.

FastGunsBy far the most popular turnbuckle is the Torklift Original FastGun. With a quick-disconnect handle and spring tension indicator, this turnbuckle is hands down the easiest way to connect your truck to the camper tie downs. It takes as little as four minutes to install the FastGuns as opposed to upwards of 30 minutes using traditional chain configuration. At Seattle’s RV Show, ask us why having spring-loaded turnbuckles are an important factor.


We have a variety of turnbuckles for both bed-mounted and frame-mounted tie down configurations. Explore our turnbuckle line or find the one that best suits you by trying each design at the Seattle RV show.

FastGuns in UseTruck Camper Tie Downs
Truck campers are a quintessential staple of any RV trade show. While visiting the RV show in Seattle, check out Torklift’s frame-mounted truck camper tie downs in both steel and aluminum versions. You’ll be able to compare the differences between the Talon aluminum tie downs versus traditional steel, and how lightweight the high performance Talons compare.

Torklift will be happy to share with you why choosing a frame-mounted tie down application is the safest and most secure way to haul a truck camper.
