Trailer step proximity a problem? We have a solution!

Bill C Blog 1At Torklift, our main priority is making life easier for campers – and when it comes to trailer steps, there’s no exception! Recently, we worked with a customer who wanted to upgrade their steps, but didn’t want to go with a ladder or drawbridge-style step that allows mud, water, sand and other debris to get inside the RV. He also didn’t want to stay with his factory RV steps due to their instability. Instead, Bill chose to install the GlowStep Revolution:

“Your steps are awesome. They indeed do everything I expected… they solve every problem that most steps have. They contact the ground, so they are stable. They are not inside the trailer like the MORRyde ones, which have to be deployed perfectly… I love these steps.”
-Bill Charmichael

Proximity Is No Issue
Although there are many new kinds of steps for trailers on the market that are an upgrade to current factory direct designs, they do have their disadvantages. One of the most prevalent issues that are common with these new steps is that they are designed to install within the doorway and have to be lowered down. That means not only do you have to stand underneath it to lower them down, you must also have a certain amount of room next to your doorway in order to deploy these steps. This could be very inconvenient in many circumstances including storage facilities, stopping at gas stations and tight camping spots.

GlowStep Revolution StepsProximity is not an issue with the GlowStep Revolution

On the other hand, GlowStep Revolution trailer steps are designed to store inside the existing factory compartment underneath your doorway. Once installed, they require minimal effort and space to deploy, so no matter where you’re parked, you will be able to use your GlowStep Revolution steps. Similar to the staircase found in your home, the GlowStep Revolution entry step system also has the shortest riser height in the industry at only 7.5-inches.

All Terrain Landing Gear
Bill C Blog 2Another feature that Bill mentioned he enjoys with his GlowStep Revolution is that these trailer steps are 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.

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 system that includes safety support and cleaning 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 to prevent debris from coming into the RV.

“I will gladly give a very positive review of the installed [GlowStep Revolution] steps to anyone. They are awesome.”
