Hitch Stair with 2 Steps for 2" Trailer Hitches - RHS2

Average Customer Rating:  4.7 out of 5 stars   (198 Customer Reviews)

Being somewhat disabled I had a hard time exiting my boat. With the help of these steps it is no longer an issue. These steps are solid. I used a small bumper receiver mounted unto the riser. Much easier to exit the boat now without the fear of missing my step on the trailer beam and falling or slipping.

Great, still solid and no flex
David T - 06/09/2018

This two step hitch stair setup was exactly what I was looking for to provide easy access to our truck camper. The steps feel very solid and secure when going in and out of the camper. I bolted on some 2x10s to make the steps even a bit larger. I painted the wood and added antislip strips for safety. I also offset the wood steps a bit as our camper door is offset to the left. Silas the dog has no trouble going up and down these stairs! Great price for a great product!

I came upon a reference to this product while searching on line for a receiver-mounted platform to replace the folding step stool we had been using to enter our Four-Wheel camper. It appeared to be just what we needed, and I found that it was an almost perfect fit. The top step is at nearly the same level as the step built into the bumper of our 2001 GMC Sierra, so this provides a large level place for our feet when we are exiting the camper. With the step unit inserted into the receiver with the middle hitch pit hole aligned, there is only a very small gap between the top step and the bumper step. I am not sure yet if we will be traveling with the steps in place, but I did install reflective red tape on the back edges of both steps, and on each side of the lower step, so that it is more visible. Be aware that the mounting bar of the step unit is not a tight fit in the receiver, so there is some movement when weight is placed off-center on the steps. Wrapping tape around the mounting bar, or perhaps inserting shims, might improve this situation.



- RHS2
by:

Step wobbles when you step at it's left and right sides. I tried shimming left right and bottom of the hitch which helped. I had though that it needs an angled split in the part that goes into the hitch with a draw bolt that pulls the 2 split halves towards each other allowing the size to grow and tighten into the hitch receiver. I thought about drilling a hole into receiver and welding a 5/8" nut onto side of receiver to tighten a bolt into the tongue of the step. I like the split tapered idea better as I would not be compromising the hitch integrity. I switched back to folding stair and do not use the step.

by:

I like it! I use my '55 Grumman (Doughboy) for camping and was looking for an alternative to carrying around a stool/step to put on the ground. I came across this Hitch Stair and I already had a 2" receiver on Doughboy, so figured I'd give it a try. I was going to make one myself, but didn't want to take the time. It does have a little "wobble" in it, but that could also be my receiver. I just carry a couple of wooden shims with me to make it steady and it works just fine. I recommend it!



- RHS2
by:

The plug in has been the perfect set of steps to get in and out of my camper. This was exactly what I was looking for.



- RHS2
by:

It's precisely what I needed. Scissor steps were a consideration due to their compact nature, but these don't have to be leveled on uneven ground; A super plus! Just leave them inside the truck camper door and take 'emout when needed. Mine fits very snug in the hitch so I don't wven use a pin. Happy trails!



- RHS2
by:

Product great,the box it was shipped in wasn't.



- RHS2
by:

Steps and extender appear they will work well for my Ram 2500 with slide-in camper, having not loaded the camper to date. Unfortunately, the receiver on heavy duty Rams are 2 and 1/2 inches, so I needed to add a 2 inch reducer which doesn't fit as tightly, making the set up less rigid. But, this will be better than the bulky set of steps I used to carry and then hope for level ground on which to set them.


Comments
Weve now welded component pieces together including 2 and 12 inch hitch adapter which the entire unit much more solid.

Using as steps to make getting in and out of the boat safer. Not as nice as trick steps for this use but much cheaper and serves the purpose



- RHS2
by:

Great product! I used this with an extension and 3 hitch stabilizers. Extend the steps perfectly to match my slide in camper and provides a solid step. I would definitely recommend adding traction adhesive and grit to the steps, they are extremely slippery in wet conditions.



- RHS2
by:

My truck bed camper is so easy to access with hitch stair and extender. Having them has finished off my project perfectly. Thanks



- RHS2
by:

so functional, compact & easy to handle. Game changer to not have to lift dogs in and out of truck camper, plus easier for me also.



- RHS2
by:

Exactly as pictured. It is very heavy duty and will work fine. will need to be shimmed to take out play in hitch.



- RHS2
by:

I had my neighborhood boat shop drill additional holes so it could slide farther into the receiver hitch extension when not needed. Providing multiple hole options for installations would make it more flexible for more uses.



- RHS2
by:

Great steps, well built. Also use them as a stool to set on for my morning cup of coffee, while putting on running or hiking shoes.



- RHS2
by:

I bought this to access my truck camper on a 2019 Toyota Tundra. It is sturdy and functional. Just know that your under-mounted spare tire may interfere with your ability to push the hitch stair to its most tucked away position (3rd hold nearest the steps). Otherwise, it has been great. I do worry sometimes that other drivers may not see the protruding steps and get to close to my rear. Adding reflective tape would be advisable.



- RHS2
by:

Just received the stair steps and put them on my 2019 F250. I am very happy with them as the steps allow me to enter and exit the back of the truck with ease. I should note that this is a work truck with a space kap installed so I have two doors that open, no tailgate. It is so much easier to have the two steps so I don’t have to step up high to get in.



- RHS2
by:

Service was great and step was delivered quickly. However, I couldn't give 5 stars because the bottom step does not extend out far enough beyond my F150 tailgate when it is down. I knew the top step would be unusable, but I read what one of the etrailer reps wrote, that the bottom step would extend beyond the tailgate. One of the main reasons for purchasing the step was so I could use it to get in and out of my truck tent without a step stool. Now, I need to purchase an extension tube.



- RHS2
by:

The stairs made the trip even with the box almost destroyed.

by:

How great this product is. Saves us a lot of money because they work just as good as the other kind of camper steps.

Just received our stairs. Perfect fit, perfect height. Quality construction and great value. Tammy in customer service was awesome!

Very sturdy well made



- RHS2
by:

This step is a lot more sturdy than I anticipated when I bought it. It doesn't twist at all when I step on just one side or the other and it is about the right step separation distance for getting into the back of the camper door on a slide in camper. I thought about putting some grip tape used on skateboards on the steps but so far it doesn't seem to need extra traction. (the skateboarder kids buy sheets of the sand coated tape the size of a skateboard for way less than buying the same stuff at a parts house) The step is rather solid.

Ask the Experts about this Brophy Hitch Step

  • Recommended Steps for Front of Boat Trailer
    It sounds like you are trying to add some steps to the tongue of your boat trailer for help getting in the boat. If that is the case then only bolt-on option we'd have is the HitchMate Boat Trailer Step part # HE4036 which bolts onto the frame. The photo attached of the Hitch Stair with 2 Steps part # RHS2 is a custom installation in which the customer welded the shank to the frame but it is not designed for this purpose.

You can attach these steps to the threshold and they will reach all the way to the ground when pulled out. They also feature glowing parts on each step so they are more visible at night. I have linked the installation instructions to the right for you. We also have # AS25 and # AS05 that can reach 48 inches.

  • Truck Bed Step for 2013 Silverado That Works with Tailgate Open
    The bottom step of the Brophy Hitch Stair # RHS2 would still be usable with the tailgate down, but the top step would be blocked by the tailgate, so it might not be the best choice for you. In addition to the Hitch Stair, we offer several other options that might work for you. Bestop offers the Trek Step, part # B75300 which mounts under the vehicle, and will extend or retract with a push of the foot. It's really a slick system, you can see how it installs by clicking the provided link.

  • Trailer Hitch Mount or Truck Bed Mount Step to Clear Lowered Tailgate
    You might be interested in the HitchMate TruckStep, # HE4045. The step extends out 23-1/2 inches from the face of the trailer hitch receiver. Depending on the position of the receiver and the length of the tailgate when down, this could work. We also have the nifty tailgate step, # CAB-SG, so you could use the tailgate to your advantage. I have included links to the right to videos on both of these steps for you.

  • Truck Bed Step for 2008 Ford F150 Usable With Tailgate Open
    Anytime a hitch extender of any kind is used, the tongue weight capacity of the hitch (the amount of downward force that can safely be applied to the hitch) is cut in half. The further away from the hitch a load is moved, the more leverage is applied to the hitch. If this distance and weight applied becomes large enough, the extender, hitch accessory and the hitch can be damaged. In my opinion, the best step option for when the tailgate is down would be the Bestop TrekStep, part # B75302....

  • Would the Hitch Stair part # RHS2 Work Well to Aid Getting In and Out of a Truck Bed Camper
    Yes, since your camper is flush with the back of the truck bed of your 2007 Toyota Tundra the Hitch Stair part # RHS2 that you referenced would be an excellent way to help you get in and out of the camper. That's actually what this product was designed to do. To prevent theft of this product you may also be interested in the hitch lock part # e98880.

  • Hitch Step Recommendation with Step Lower than Hitch Tube
    I believe we have just what you are looking for. Check out the Brophy Hitch Step part # RHS2. This actually has two steps. One lower than the hitch shank and one that sits above it. This would not require any hitch adapters to get a step lower than the hitch tube. For a locking hitch pin we have the part # e98880 which would work well.

  • Can Hitch Stair Steps for 2 Inch Trailer Hitches be Left in Hitch While Driving 2001 Toyota Tundra
    Technically, you could leave the hitch stair steps, # RHS2, mounted in the hitch while you drive. But it is going to affect ground clearance since the lower step is several inches below the receiver. I advise also adding an anti-rattle device such as # RM-061.

Especially with a hitch extender as well.
