Will Torklift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps Work for You?

Fold-down steps are typically installed on travel trailers and some RVs. The fold-down steps from Torklift lift up to latch into your camper's doorway for storage. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


The Torklift revolution Uprising Steps install inside your camper's doorframe. Measuring for this may seem tricky, but once you know what to look for, figuring out the right fit for your RV doorway is easy.

First, you will need to measure the doorsill plate, both the height and the clearance between it and the bottom of the door. For the Revolution Uprising steps to fit, the doorsill height should be between 5/8" and 3/4", and the clearance should be at least 3/8".


Next measure between the door frame flanges - the doorway width - to determine the step size that will fit into your camper's doorway. You will need a doorway that is at least 28" wide for these steps to work.

If it turns out you have a narrower doorway, there are smaller step assemblies available that fit 24" wide doorways. A full list of the available steps is below.

The doorway threshold will be used as the "mounting point" to determine how many steps you will need.

How Many Steps Do You Need?


To decide on how many steps you'll need, measure from the mounting point to the ground. This is called the entry height. The entry height should roughly match the height of the steps when they're fully extended, and it will tell you how many steps you need.

The chart below displays entry height measurement ranges in the first column. If you determined you need a mounting bracket that fits a 24" doorway, the step part numbers with that width are in the second column. If you determined you need a bracket that fits a 28" doorway, the step part numbers with that width are in the third column. Choose the doorway width that is closest to your measurements without going over.

How Do You Install the Steps?

To install the steps:

  1. Make sure the camper is level on flat ground
  2. Place the mounting bracket into the camper doorway
  3. Extend until feet touch the ground
  4. Attach the door brackets to the main mounting bracket with the included hardware
  5. Center the steps in the doorframe
  6. Slide assembly forward until the two door brackets touch the inside of the doorframe

    -Make sure the brackets are flush against the doorframe and the floor

  7. Drill holes through both sides of the doorframe
  8. Secure the door brackets to the doorframe and the floor with included hardware
  9. Push the main bracket forward until the vertical piece makes contact with the threshold
  10. Torque the hardware to 25 in-lbs

Video Transcript for Review of TorkLift RV and Camper Steps - Truck Camper - Towable Camper - TLA9003

Everyone. I'm Ellen, here at, and today we're taking a look at the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising. These are going to be RV steps that are going to be a specially designed for those campers or RVs that don't already have a step well or a little spot for the steps to go underneath the entryway. So these are going to actually fold up into your RV's entryway and stay stored whenever you're in transport, and then whenever you're ready to actually get in and out, you can flip them down and then walk up like you normally would.Now, I have two of these laid out here. Basically, the reason why is because we'll have two different sizes. We'll have one that's going to be 28 inches wide for the 28 inch entryway and then when that's for a 24 inch wide entryway.

Everything else is the same besides that, with the entry height that it works with, the weight ratings, all that good stuff. So I just wanted to show you both what it looks like whenever you have an expanded out and then what did it look like whenever you have it kind of tipped up into that entryway.So it does mount to the frame of your entryway, and the really nice thing about the TorkLift GlowSteps is that they're going to be a very solid step. So typically with your OEM RV steps, they have that kind of springboard effect where that last step is just kind of floating in the air and now you've got to kind of spring off of it onto the ground. Not the safest, not the most stable, kind of hard on your back and your knees.That gap can sometimes be a little high, so you have to have an extra step stool, things like that. We don't have to worry about that with these steps.

Since they do make contact with the ground via these little landing feet, they're actually going to create a really stable connection between your doorway and the ground, so you don't have to worry about any of those issues.Now, I have mine just kind of precariously resting up here. Whenever this is installed, this portion would actually be sitting level over your threshold, but even so this is still really solid and really sturdy. There is no shaking or moving of these steps. They're really well made. A nice aircraft grade aluminum for the step plates themselves, so they're going to be nice, bright, easy to spot, no rusting or corrosion, pretty lightweight as well.

There's also a little bit of this glow tape on either side, hence the GlowStep name, and that helps you to see them even in the dark so you're not having to kind of guess where the next step is.So I really like these. I think they're very solid. I liked that the weight capacity is about 375 pounds, so plenty for most people out there. It's a very solid, secure step, and you can also really adjust these. So we'll have those landing feet as I mentioned.

These can be raised and lowered on inch increments up to seven and a half feet. And then we'll also have this kind of bonus step at the bottom.So since I just have this kind of precariously set up here, I'm not going to flip it out, but basically there's a little lever down here at the bottom. So if you we're to lift this up, pull that lever out, you convert this from a two step to a three step. The reason why that's really nice is because if you're kind of on the edge of the entry height requirement, you'll have an extra step when you need it and it's not there when you don't. So it gives you kind of that in between height that you might need.If you are going to need three steps all the time, it might get a little annoying to have to flip that out every time you undo your steps. It can be used as a three step every day, but that's just one of the things that you . Instead of having to have that little extra movement every time you under your steps, you'll just have the two. So that's kind of the reason why this is only going to be classified as a two step here at versus a three step. It's like a two step plus.So between that extra step and our landing gear, each one of those individually gives us seven and a half inches total of height. So we'll have up to 15 inches of adjustment for the height of our steps. That way we can get them leveled out. The landing feet can be adjusted independently, so even if you're on kind of uneven terrain, you can get that leveled out so you have a nice solid connection between you and the ground.A couple of other things that I like about these, that again, it does just ride inside our vehicle so we don't have to worry about making any modifications underneath the RV. You do have to screw in that hardware to get it installed, but pretty easy to use. It's lightweight enough that whenever you pull it out, it's not going to slam on the ground, but it's not so loose that it's going to hit you in the face or anything like that.The connections, all our pivot points here, are going to be bolted rather than riveted so it gives you that nice, easy motion. You can also kind of adjust that so if it starts to loosen up over time, you can crank down a little bit on that hardware to tighten it up. And also if anything we're to happen to one of these steps, you can replace them individually, so you don't have to worry about getting a whole new unit. If one step is bent or damaged, you can just replace that damaged step or any of the hardware in between. Also in the future if you decide that you do need that extra third step all the time, you can add one end. So it makes it really nice to adapt to whatever situation you might have in the future.Now as far as the other specs with this, it does have an entry height. It's recommended for up to 19 and 7/8ths inches to 27 and 3/8ths inches, so any entry height in between there. And that's going from the ground to the bottom edge of the threshold, or the ground of the threshold there. You want to make sure that you have at least 3/8ths inches of clearance in between your thresholds and the bottom of your door. That's to make sure that it can pass over this top plate so that there's no issues there.We'll also have a step width, or the usable step here. For our 28 inch wide entry, the actual usable step is going to be 23 inches wide, and then for our smaller 24 inch entryway model, it's going to be 18 and a half inches wide for that usable step. It's a little harder to see since the steps are on the other side, but that's how wide it's going to be there.The depth of each are our steps is going to be eight inches front to back, and then the rise is just seven and a half inches. So that's pretty comparable to a lot of steps in your home. It's not too big of a jump, so it shouldn't be too hard on bad knees or bad backs or anything like that.There's also a lot of accessories that you can get to go with the TorkLift GlowSteps, including a boot brush, panels that can go here and kind of close up that gap to make it easier for pets to go up the stairs without getting spooked by seeing through them. You can also get a hand rail and pretty much all of those just attached to the hardware on the side. The weight capacity again is 375 pounds. Comes with a limited lifetime warranty from TorkLift, and they are made in the USA.One other thing I want to point out is that this actually has some sure step grooves, and the top of the step will also have this kind of sandpapery material up here so we don't have to worry about slipping and sliding on our steps. All in all, I really like these. I think they're a great advantage for your RV, and they should make getting in and out of breeze. Thanks for watching, and that's going to do it for our look at the TorkLift GlowStep Uprising.

Review from a similar GlowStep Revolution Uprising in RV and Camper Steps

This is one of the best products I’ve purchased. I replaced my Step-Above steps (<1 year old) with Torklift because of weight and ease of use...the coach parked next to me in storage never allowed enough room without pulling out my Solitude when gaining access. The install was a snap it took less than and hour with my buddy Tom. Matt at etrailor was top notch and helped coordinate the delivery while we were on the road. Five star rating for service, product and installation.

My Torklift stairs remains the best purchase I’ve made for my Solitude. No matter where we stop these conform to every situation.

Review from a similar GlowStep Revolution Uprising in RV and Camper Steps

Easy to install. Just make sure if you have any drawers by the doorway, clear the lift brackets. I had to trim my cabinet drawer, which was no big deal.
Steps work great. Entry is a breeze.


Review from a similar GlowStep Revolution Uprising in RV and Camper Steps

We LOVE our TorkLift Revolution steps. Our New Horizons fifth wheel sits pretty high off the ground, and having the Booster Step on the 5-step model has been great. We use that extra step more often than not. The steps are easy to pull out and put back in. And the glow squares are great when we're camping in a "Dark Sky" location. They're unobtrusive, but help us find our way in the dark. We have two of these, one for each entry door on our toyhauler. We've also used them like a ladder when stopping in tight places or on the side of the road where it slopes away too fast to put the stairs out. Very versatile and well-made, we highly recommend. In the photos, the back door has the 24" steps with the extra step not in use, and the front door (side with awnings) has the 28" steps with the extra step extended.


Review from a similar GlowStep Revolution Uprising in RV and Camper Steps

Took me an hour to install the steps on our Winnebago Mini Drop WD1710. They fit with no alterations to the door frame.

They are sturdy and much easier and safer to enter and exit than the original single floating step.

Awesome steps. Easy install and easy to use. Very sturdy.

These steps are awesome. Exactly what we were looking for. Well built.

Review from a similar GlowStep Revolution Uprising in RV and Camper Steps

Just finished the installation. I replaced Mor-Ryde steps, which came stock in our Grand Design. The original steps are good, but we had Torkilifts on out prior camper and really liked them. They are sturdy and the level of the camper is not an issue anymore when wanting to open the camper door wit the Mor-Ryde steps. Definitely would recommend. (They are pricey, but it is a quality item.)

  • Recommended Replacement Triple Steps for ATC Trailer
    While we do have some step solutions for you, none of the traditional style steps have the top step level with the mounting brackets when they are pulled out and/or a bracket mounting width of 29" wide (which is much wider than normal). For your application I recommend either going with the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising Steps, part # TLA9103 for a 24" width between door frame hinges or part # TLA9003 for 28" width between door frame hinges, OR the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor...

  • Can Booster Step be Added to Standard TorkLift GlowStep Revolution
    The Booster Step is something that comes on the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Uprising models that fold up into the door like what you mentioned with part # TLA9003. Since you have the standard TorkLift GlowStep Revolution that stores under the door # TLA8004 that currently isn't an add-on option, but my contact at TorkLift did say that they are looking for a way to come up with a Booster Step for the standard GlowStep Revolution models. With this being the case, it means you can either...
