Why do you want the Stow N’ Go?

Stow N Go

Stow N Go2We can say something like, “this is a step up to your current truck camper steps,” and although that’s true, why take our word for it? Although we’ve designed a set of steps to make your life so much more convenient when you’re truck camping, sometimes it’s better to hear from your fellow campers!

What’s so cool about the Stow N’ Go?

The Stow N’ Go was designed specifically to lock while in transit, eliminating the hassle of having to detach and store the steps inside your camper. The steps remain mounted to the back of the truck camper bumper to prevent the interior from getting dirty. This step system comes standard with the storage bracket, GlowStep entry system and All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet.

“This is very sweet. We have been using a strap in the past to store hold ours in place. They function flawlessly here for our application. We subjected it to the normal beating we go through and the bands didn’t let it rattle or come loose at all during travel

   – Columbus and Chris Partin

Stow N Go3With the step bracket, you no longer have to worry about unnecessary detaching and reattaching, and with a special nylon retainer system that eliminates movement, the steps snap securely in place. GlowStep locks are available for extra protection and the step system comes standard with All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet. The steps mount onto the back of the truck camper bumper or underneath the camper door, and come in a range of three to six steps. This step system also has multiple accessories available so you can customize to fit your needs.

 

 

Accessories Available:Stow N Go4

  1.  GlowGuide Handrail
    A truck camper handrail composed of three telescopic arms: the upper door arm mount, the lower step arm mount and the strut arm. From the door entry to the ground you are guided all the way down with added stability.
  2. Dirt Destroyer – Shoe Cleaning Attachment 
    A shoe cleaning attachment designed to work with any scissor step. Simply scrape your shoe on this bristle attachment and leave the dirt outside of the RV, saving you from one less mess.
  3. SafeStep – Pet Safety Barrier
    A protective step riser guard that creates a vertical barrier between the steps to help protect your pets and children from potentially falling. With a velcro backed panel for an easy install, the panels can stay attached while steps are in the stowed position.

“I really like the adjustable ‘feetsies’ [All Terrain Landing Gear] on the bottom too. Makes setting the steps super easy to get level where I camp, in the woods, where the ground is typically uneven.”

– Daryl Davis

The GlowStep Stow N’ Go is made in the USA and comes with our Legendary Lifetime Warranty. For questions or for more information on any of these products contacts us at 800-246-8132 or shop now at one of our Torklift Certified Dealers

How to avoid 5 pesky problems your truck camper steps are giving you!

SNG Blog 1

Are you tired of having to store your cumbersome truck camper steps inside your camper? Or do they leave a mess inside every time you store them? While there are some pesky problems with truck campers that are unavoidable, these problems are easy to solve with Stow N’ Go steps from Torklift!

Below are the top 5 pesky problems that you have to deal with when it comes to your truck camper steps, and how the Stow N’ Go helps alleviate these issues.

1.) Installation/Removal of Your Current Steps

There are many kinds of truck camper steps available, but most of them are not attached (such as step ladders) and require you to store them inside your camper while in transit. The best way to avoid storing steps inside the RV and eliminate the hassle of detaching steps during transit? The Stow N’ Go is designed for easy “stow-and-go” step operation for truck campers – simply pull the handle to deploy and store truck camper steps. As an added bonus, the bolt-on stabilizing bracket features nylon studs that allows the RV steps to snap securely into place and prevent step movement during transit.

2.) Mess from your truck camper steps

Dirt inside the RV is a no-no! It is incredibly inconvenient having to store your dirty steps inside the truck camper, then it just adds insult to injury when you have to deep clean the interior from everything that was tracked in from the steps. The Stow N’ Go prevents dirty RV interior by installing and storing outside your camper. Mounted directly to the bumper or below the door, these RV steps keep your camper clean so you can focus on more important things – like creating the perfect s’more! Yum!

3.) Instability

To stabilize steps on uneven terrain, the Stow N’ Go comes standard with the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet. The All Terrain Landing Gear reach the ground and ensure solid placement on any type of terrain. Avoid dealing with the shaky, wobbly feeling of factory steps or having to carry around an extra ladder that isn’t attached to your camper. Ladders and booster steps can be dangerous. Injuries can happen when stepping from one step to another with unstable steps. Don’t fall in-between! With the stability of the Stow N’ Go there’s no fear of falling.

4.) No visibility at night

One of the best things about camping is getting to see all the stars at night and not having to see the glow from city lights. There’s nothing quite like it – but this also comes with a potential risk: not being able to see your steps at night once you’re done stargazing! Instead of having to stumble and guess where your steps are, there should be an easier way to get in and out of your camper at night. That’s where the Stow N’ Go comes in - these camper steps glow-in-the-dark for up to ten hours with only five minutes of light exposure – no batteries necessary. This is due to the glow-in-the-dark stickers that are attached to the top of the steps, making the Stow N’ Go even more versatile and perfect for both day and night use.

5.) Lost or stolen truck camper steps

There isn’t a worse feeling than returning to the camper and finding that someone stole your equipment. Or the sudden pit in your stomach when you realize that you’re 6 hours into a trip back home and you forgot or lost your truck camper steps. Both of these events means that you’ll have to get a replacement step. This not only takes time out of your trip, but also costs more money than you planned for. The Stow N’ Go steps easily prevent this – they are lockable with GlowStep Locks to prevent theft or potentially leaving them behind at the last campground.

But, don’t just take our word for how great these steps are! Below is Frank Poole’s thoughts on his old steps and how he feels about upgrading to the Stow N’ Go on his truck camper:

 

SNG Blog 4“I have been using a Giant Ladder before and while it did the job very well, it was sort of a hassle, lifting into and out of the camper, not to mention climbing up on the Fox step to get to the bumper open the door while keeping a death grip on the ladder. It just fit on the floor and was cumbersome…” 
-Frank Poole

What is this solution you ask? None other than the latest and greatest from Torklift, the Stow N’ Go! The Stow N’ Go truck camper steps are easy to install and come standard with a mounting bracket that can be installed below your truck camper door or on the bumper of your truck camper. The “Pros” of the Stow N’ Go according to Frank?

Pros:
-Easy to use, in/out.
-Very convenient, especially for quick stop use, markets, access, etc.
-Easy Storage, just lift and push/pull. No dirt inside of camper.
-Sturdy, like normal step only stronger.
-Adjustable levelers on the bottom, very important for boondocking.
-Able to ADD or Remove steps depending up need - don't have to buy a whole new set of steps.
-Ribbed step to help prevent slipping in wet weather.
-Glow tabs to see steps.
-Lifetime Warranty.

We love everything you had to say about the truck camper steps Frank and thank you for the encouraging words! We agree that the ability to easily lift and store the steps on the outside of the camper to prevent a dirty interior, as well as the sturdy and strong feeling that comes from the hand-built steps with All Terrain Landing Gear are great features.
