The lend a hand replaced the regular grab bar that came with trailer being disabled the lend a hand works better than the original bar what is best about it larger or longer bar to hold onto as you go up or down the stairs the original bar does not have that the extra length. I'm really glad I put this on the trailer you won't go wrong by putting this on your trailer

A great help to my wife who has had knee replacement surgery. It gives her stability and confidence coming into and out of the trailer.

Super quick delivery, we are so pleased. We are ordering a second hand railing. This hand railing does everything as promised. Really easy to install.

Easy to install. Makes a world of difference for my mother in law while climbing the stairs.

The grab rail match the holes from my original handle, so installation was a breeze. Like having the lower handle for my wife's smaller size, makes it great for her.

It works great. Should be on all RVs.

I bought two of these for our travel trailer. My wife has mobility issues and this has very helpful to her. They were relatively easy to install. Most trailers have very limited blocking in the wall so it is best if they can be attached at the same attachment points as the original handles. Not the same holes just the same general location.

My wife has difficulty getting into our newly purchased motorhome so I Googled rv handrails and came up with this Lend-a-Hand Grab Handle. The price was in line with what I expected so I ordered it. Two days later I received the Grab Handle. Installation was easy, took about ten minutes and I am extremely pleased with its operation. Five stars from me.



- AM-533
by:

I installed one of these at both trailer doors. They have been terrific. After a knee and hip joint replacement surgeries and arthritis in the others, my wife is mobility challenged. Not only do these handrails help her get into the trailer, it gives her more confidence about getting in. You should realize there is a chance there may not be blocking at your mounting locations but this is somewhat mitigated by the fact there are 3 screws per mounting block. Special fasteners may be advisable.

Still working well. I am very pleased.

The extended handle makes entering our trailer much easier. I would especially recommend if someone has limited strength in there arm/shoulder. The installation was very easy as it used the same mounting holes as the original handle.

It's great. So much easier to get in and o.ut of our 5th wheel. Great purchase.

After one-year the extra long grab handle is still holding up as advertised. I would definitely purchase again.

We love it. It is perfect for our 3 year old grandson as well as his grandparents!!!! My wife especially feels much safer going down our longer set of stairs. Arrived right away too. A couple of things to note: on our Coachmen Catalina the bracket points did not match the factory installed folding handle that was there before so I could only use one previously used attach points. The other thing - my bad! - when I went to measure the bottom attachment I had one of the brackets not seated in a groove and thus when I drilled holes and was ready to go - the handle could not do its thing requiring me to drill another set of holes fairly close to the set I just drilled. Grrrrr. Both sets are covered by the housing and made sure they were well caulked! I just wanted to point out for others to MAKE sure the top and bottom are seated firmly before marking and drilling your holes. Again WORKS GREAT after my dufus mistake was corrected!! Thanks for another super product. By the way the factory install handle got put on our bedroom door as it only had a solid grab handle. Left that in place and put the folding handle around it.

We added this railing when we installed Liperts Solid Step RV stairs on our 5th wheel RV. This railing works great for older campers and our younger grandkids as well. Mounted in the original location that pur previous railing mounted. Would be again....

This product looks like it will work just fine. It is light weight but sturdy. It folds back against the RV with ease. I'm installing this on a mobile health clinic for the ease of access for paitients.

This assist handle works great for those of us who are a bit older and need something to grab onto before we get on that frsi step.

Bought this unit for my 89 year young mother in law. Needed to get her a little more help with the camper steps. Easy to install and worked just like we planned. She now has places to put both hands on the rail and they start nice and low too. Perfect.

  • Replacement Exterior Folding Handrail for 2015 Grand Design 385TH Toy Hauler
    RV makers don't keep track of items such as the door railings that they install on their trailers but since the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 can fold in either direction it should work great for your Grand Design 385TH toy hauler. The distance between the mounting brackets is 19-1/4-inches so you can compare this to your handle mounts. If you cannot find a door stud for mounting you can locally source long bolts and a plate to provide a secure mounting point. Four...

  • Will Lend-a-Hand Grab Handle Require Drilling
    Trailer manufacturers don't keep records of the exact parts they have so there would really be no way to know if the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 will mount exactly inline with the existing door on your Keystone Springdale. The mounting brackets of this handle are 19-1/4" apart so you can measure where your current grab handle is to see if it has that distance. If it does not you will need to drill to install the grab handle. I have added a link to a video review...

  • Does Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle AM-533 Include Hardware
    The Stromberg Carlson Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 does include four mounting screws for installation on an RV door stud. The handle can mount on either side of a door but it folds in only one direction (toward the rear of the RV when mounted on the passenger side).

  • Mounting Hole Locations on Lend-a-Hand Folding Handrail for RV
    The Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs - Black with Black Foam Grip - Aluminum # AM-533 have brackets that have three holes in each. I went out to our warehouse to measure for you and the holes from top bracket to bottom bracket are all 23-3/4 inches on center. On each bracket there are two holes vertically and they are 1-1/8 inch on center. Then there is one horizontal hole aligned with the top hole of each bracket and to the right of it which is also 1-1/8 inch on...

  • Replacement Lend a Hand Handle for 2015 Forest River Cherokee 16BHS Camper Trailer
    Yes, the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533 that you referenced will fit your 2015 Forest River Cherokee 16BHS. The mounting bracket dimensions will be the same as what you have since this was designed to be as universal as possible and fit that standard bracket dimensions on RVs that is 19-1/4 inches apart. The extra dip in the handle will also be easier for kids to reach. I attached a review video for this for you to check out as well.

  • Mounting Bracket Spacing of Lend-a-Hand Grab Handle AM-533
    The mounting bracket spacing of the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 is 19-1/4 inches as opposed to 31 inches, and this handle has the closest spacing to the 17-3/4 inches you mentioned needing. If you are having a bit of trouble with the install and cannot find a door stud what you can do instead is just use 1/4"-20 bolts with washers and you'll be able to secure the rail.

  • Could Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 Be Prevented from Pivoting
    The folding mechanism of the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 is a spring loaded mechanism that moves up to allow it to fold to either side. If you wanted to lock this out it would be a matter of preventing the handle from moving vertically so that it can swing. We don't have a recommended way to accomplish this but I am sure it wouldn't be too difficult to pull off.

  • Handrail For RV With Flip Tread Steps
    We have a handrail option for you, but the MORryde hand rail won't fit the Flip Tread steps, just the StepAbove steps because the Flip Tread steps have a different type of frame to accommodate the collapsible treads. So the best option will be a hand rail that mounts directly to your RV: - Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533 This is a large, 37" x 25-1/2" handrail that will secure directly to your RV and give you added support and stability as you make your way...

    The Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 has a distance of 19.5" from the bottom of the top mounting bracket to the top of the bottom mounting bracket. It appears that the measurement Stromberg has on their site is in reference to the distance between the handle grab bar itself at 23.5". I have included images below that will show the measured distances for the mounting holes.

  • Handrail Recommendation for Use with SolidStep RV System
    Since the SolidStep RV Steps fold up into the interior of the camper you'd need to use a hand rail that attaches to only the outside of the camper like the Stromberg # AM-533. This folds out when needed and would work great. The # AP-101 wouldn't work with a SolidStep.

  • Recommended Hand Rail for Electric Steps on RV
    The TorkLift GlowGuide Handrail # TLA7621 referenced in your question is designed to work with TorkLift scissor step assemblies. It can technically be used on assemblies from other manufacturers, but you will not be able to physically attach the handrail to the steps. This is because the handrail will use mounting brackets specific to the TorkLift step design. In order to use this with the electric steps on your Holiday Rambler RV, you would likely need to extend the vertical rail down...

  • RV Step Rail Recommendation That Has Round Handle
    I would agree that a round handle for RV steps would be easier to grab and would feel more natural than a square shape. A better option for you might be the Lend A Hand Handle part # AM-533 which does have a round handle shape and has a pad for grabbing onto that helps as well.

  • What is Purpose of Shim Kit for Lend-a-Hand Folding Grab Handle
    The shim kit part # 5991-SM is designed to push the handle part # AM-533 out a little further from the body of the RV so that it can close around a door that sticks out further from the outer wall. So if your door closes mostly flush with your RV wall you wouldn't need the shim.

  • Hand Rail for RV with Folding Triple Step
    Since we don't know what steps you have on your RV you'd have to go with a universal style of hand rail like the Lend-a-Hand part # AM-533 which attaches to the side of the RV and folds up against it when not in use.

  • Is There a Handrail Available for the Solid Step XF RV Steps
    I have a different solution for you, but I contacted the manufacturer and there is currently no handrail available for the XF series of steps. You could use the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533. This has a more universal fit because it will attach to your RV, opposed to the steps.

  • Diameter of Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle

  • Is There a Hand Rail Available for MORryde Flip Tread Steps
    MORryde does not offer a hand rail for the Flip Tread Steps like the part # MR42UR so you'd need to use a folding hand rail that attaches to the RV like with the Lend-A-Hand part # AM-533.

    The hand rail with the largest handle would be the Stromberg Carlson # AM-533 you'd looked at. The hand rail also features a padded handle on the lower end of the bar for a comfortable grip when you're climbing that first step. I have no way of knowing what hole spacing was used for the handrail on your motorhome, the manufacturers don't keep track of that information so there's no way to look it up. However, I've provided a photo showing how the mounting holes are spaced for you. Each...

    If you were referring to a handrail, there is one available that would work with the Lippert SolidStep # LC791572. The handrail # LC799640 is made specifically for these steps. The Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle for RVs # AM-533 mounts to the side of your RV door, locks when in use and locks again in the stowed position when it is not in use.

  • Handrails and Steps That Will Improve Handicap Access Into a Pull Behind Camper.
    Yes, something like the Lend-a-Hand Extra Large Folding Grab Handle # AM-533 can replace the original grab handle to make it easier to get in and out. The best thing would be to replace the steps with some like the TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps w/ Landing Gear # TLA8003. These steps are designed to telescope all the way to the ground(door height of 25-1/2" - 36"), which makes the first step solid versus the bounce that you will normally feel with retractable steps.
