Expert Answers about Ram RV and Camper Steps


  • Lippert Fold Down Solid Step for 2017 Coachman RL251
  • You will need two measurements to pick the perfect fitting Lippert fold down solid steps. First the door way width which is the distance between the narrowest part of the door, usually where the flanges stick out. See the picture on the product page. Second you will need to measure the "Entry Height," which is the height from the threshold at the bottom of the door to the ground. With these two number in hand refer to the chart of the product page. I have attached a copy of it here. For...

  • RV Steps for 29.5 inch door w/ a 36.5 Drop
  • For a 29.5" doorway with a 36.5" stair height I recommend the MORryde StepAbove RV Steps for 27-3/4" to 30-1/4" Wide Doorways - 4 Steps item # MR28RR.

  • Difference Between Glowstep Stow n Go Steps and Revolution Steps
  • Essentially it's how the two scissor steps store. The part # TLA7844 stores more like a traditional scissor step seen typically at the back of truck bed campers while the # TLA8004 stores more like what is seen on the side of campers. Since you have a Grand Design Reflection 337rls the part # TLA8004 would be the better option.

  • Mounting A TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go To A Truck Bed Camper
  • It is too small of a space to fit the TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear - 4 Steps - 375lbs - Black Bracket Item # TLA7834 but you can instead mount it to the bumper of your camper like in the attached picture.

  • What Happens if Torklift GlowSteps are Extended too Far or Extended Not Far Enough
  • If you had a TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go # TLA7834 installed and when it was fully deployed it wasn't touching the ground you'd run risk of bending or breaking the setup. If it was a lower height than usual the steps would just basically be closer together.

  • How Far Out Does TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8003 Extend
  • Each one of the steps of the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8003 that you referenced is 8 inches deep and there are three of the steps so it would stick out a total of 24 inches give or take a few inches. The reason I say "give or take a few inches" is because this is a scissor step which means that the higher the vertical distance the steps come down the further out they will go as they extend.

  • Recommended Scissor Steps for Truck Camper
  • The TorkLift GlowStep Stow N' Go Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA7844 is an excellent option for your camper. It will give you 4 steps up to your bumper and have a mounting bracket height of 35-3/8". This will enable you to mount it directly to the rear face of your bumper once your current TorkLift step is removed. These steps include landing gear which make them more solid and able to accommodate uneven terrain. The Glow tape makes the steps easy to see at night while the built-in...

  • Recommended SolidStep for a Grand Design Reflection 337RLS

  • Height of Steps on TorkLift GlowStep # TLA8003 When in Stowed Position
  • The steps on the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8003 referenced in your question feature a vertical height of 13-3/4 inches to 14-3/4 inches when fully collapsed in their stored position. This is a really nice, 3-step scissor step assembly that features an easy-to-use lever that will actually let you choose between 3 different height settings.

  • Lippert SolidStep Compatibility with Threshold and Door on 2010 Keystone Montana
  • We do not carry the Morryde steps so I can't speak to their fit, but we do carry the similar Lippert SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps like # LC791575. These have a lip that will go over the threshold you are referencing and will allow the door to close in most cases. I have had one customer with an almost flush threshold that required removing some of the flooring material to allow the fit and door to close, so I do know that customization was required on one trailer but most allow this...

  • Step Options for 2017 Ram ProMaster 136 Wheelbase
  • If a step was needed along one of the side doors on your 2017 Ram ProMaster 1500 you could install Carr Step for Cargo Vans - Grated Steel Platform - Galvanized - 24" Long - 500 lbs Item # CARR501090 which is a manually operated retractable step. You might be able to make it work at the back but I can't guarantee it. There aren't any electric options that will work. Another option, if the van has a 2 inch trailer hitch, is a step such as # CARR190011 or # HE3045. If it doesn't have a...

  • Overall Side To Side Dimensions Of Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps

The 26-1/8 inches is the dimension of the mounting brackets at the top of the steps. I have attached a photo with dimension noted of the Flexco Manual Pull-Out Steps # SMFP-2100 you can check out.

  • Removable Handrail Compatible with Lippert Solid Step # LC678027
  • The SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps # LC791575 does not have a handrail that is available as an add on part. However, you may want to consider using the Aluminum Hand Rail for 4 Step Scissor Stair # AHR4 that will give you a 43 inch removable handrail. You will need to determine how to attach it to the steps as it is designed for the scissor steps. I've attached a video to assist. Your other option is to use a folding handle that may be longer than your current RV handle. For this...

  • How to Determine Correct Replacement Steps fora 2010 Jayco Eagle 5th Wheel Trailer
  • Knowing the width of your steps is a good place to start when looking for replacement steps for your 2010 Jayco Eagle. The next thing you will need to do is determine how far it needs to drop. For example, the Lippert Alumi-Tread Manual Pull-Out Step # LC432698 drops 29-3/8" from the top of the installation brackets to the top of the bottom step. I have also attached photos of the dimensions for the mounting holes and the steps when they are folded up. You will need to use these...

  • Recommended Side Entry Step for 2019 Ram Promaster 2500 High Top
  • We do have one solution that would work for your 2019 Ram Promaster 2500 Van, and that is the Carr Hide Away Step for Work Trucks - Side Mount - Grated Steel Platform - 24" Long # CARR501090. The step releases when you push it from the outer edge with your foot, so if you want it in during travel you would need to push it back in for storage while inside the vehicle and then press it again before exiting the vehicle to utilize it. The big advantage to this particular step is the ability...

  • Recommendations to Reduce Height on First Step for Coachmen Trailblazer Toy Hauler
  • It sounds like going from the existing 2 step assembly on your Coachmen Trailblazer Toy Hauler to a 3 step assembly will be the best option for reducing the height of the first step. I recommend looking at the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps # TLA8103. This 3 step assembly has a mounting base dimension of 25-7/16 inches wide and 12 inches deep, which is the closest box dimension to the measurement you provided that we currently have available.

  • Recommendation For Less Steep Steps For Fifth Wheel
  • Because you want steps that are easier to navigate, I recommend something like the Torklift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps w/Landing Gear-4 Steps, Item # TLA8004.

  • Do Lippert SolidStep Fold-Down Steps Need to be Centered in Doorway When Installing
  • You should try to locate the center point of your door frame when installing the SolidStep Manual Fold-Down Steps for 26" to 29-7/8" RV Door Frames - Triple # LC791572. If you take a look at the cut out of the directions I added it does specify centering the steps in the doorway, and we always recommend following the manufacturer's directions. Having said that, realistically you will be fine with it not being 100 percent perfectly centered, so long as it doesn't deviate all the way to...

  • Can TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Step Fit Grand Design Reflection 337RLS
  • The TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA8004 is designed to fit the standard opening for steps on RVs like your 2018 Grand Design Reflection 337RLS so it will work one way or the other, but your step mounting brackets would need to be 27-1/2 inches apart for this kit to bolt right up. Otherwise you can move them or have these welded in place on the frame. I attached an install video for this kit for you to check out as well.

  • Open Height of the Triple Lippert Tread Lite Step
  • When extended out the steps you mentioned # LC353543 will be a total of 32-7/8 inches tall from where they mount to the vehicle. You'd want at least 40 inches from the ground to where you would mount these otherwise they would be too tall to work ideally. What is the distance you have from the ground to where you want to mount steps?
