Is this right For you? Product Expert Kathleen M says:

Yes, if you:

  • Only use your truck bed camper on occasion and want something affordable
  • Have a camper with an entry height (the distance from the ground to where the steps attach) between 40" - 48"

No, if you:

  • Have trust issues when it comes to ladders and steps and want an option that bolts on so you know it's not going anywhere
  • Go off-road and need some adjustability for uneven ground
  • Feel wobbly when going up and down narrow stairs

Will Brophy Camper Scissor Steps Work for You?

Scissor steps are typically installed on truck campers, but can be attached to your truck's tailgate using a special mounting bracket (TSSB - sold separately). After the initial installation, they're easy to attach when needed and detach for compact storage. To ensure you choose the correct size for your application, there are a few measurements you will need to take.


Brophy Mounting Bracket

The Brophy scissor steps have a single mounting bracket that attaches to either the camper wall or the truck bumper beneath the doorway. To decide which size you'll need, locate the space available for the mounting bracket on your application that lines up with the doorframe, and measure the width and height. You will need a mounting space at least 18-1/4" wide and 1" tall.


If it turns out you have more space beneath your doorway, there are larger step assemblies available with 24" wide brackets. A full list of the available steps is below.


Once you have an approximation of where the mounting bracket will go and what size mounting bracket you need, the spot you chose will be used as the "mounting point" to determine how many steps you will need.


How Many Steps Do You Need?

Brophy Entry Height

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 also tell you how many steps you need.


The chart below displays entry height measurement ranges in the first column. If you determined you need an 18-1/4" mounting bracket, the step part numbers with that width are in the second column. If you determined you need a 24" mounting bracket width, the step part numbers with that width are in the third column. Choose the bracket size that is closest to your measurements without going over.


This page's step assembly is in bold text.

24" - 30"AS03, SS03AS23
31" - 40"AS04, SS04AS24

How Do You Install the Steps?

To install the steps:

  1. Find the mounting spot for the bracket on your vehicle
  2. Unfold the steps and attach to the mounting bracket "V" clamps
  3. Place step assembly against camper or bumper

    -Make sure assembly is centered beneath the doorway

  4. Mark the mounting holes on the camper and drill
  5. Remove steps from bracket and set aside
  6. Attach the mounting bracket to the camper

    -Secure in place with included lag screws

  7. Hook stairs into mounting bracket "V" clamps and extend

It's hard to find 5 step camper steps, especially in 17 inches wide. These are perfect. Sturdy and well made.

These steps were the perfect solution to my custom toy hauler that I am building from an old moving truck. Anyone with a simple drill can install in under a minute.

Lightweight, sturdy, and easy to install, just as advertised.

Very well made product. Easy to install. A very nice addition to our Eagle Cap truck camper that sits very high on our 1- ton pickup truck.

Top notch product would recommend this step to any camper that needs a folding step, light weight and easy set up

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


I could not find a product specifically made for my application, but these steps were a very close fit. I little cutting here some drilling there and what do you know, steps 'custom made' for a 1999 Roadtrek 190P. Now anyone with mobility issues can enter the camper easily. You cannot see it in the picture, but there are blocks under the top step that are pinned to the campers step, it is a very solid connection and will not pull out accidentally. Also not visible there are commercial handicapped grab bars on both doors as well as on the left hand 'wall' of the bathroom. With the addition of these steps the camper is now easily accessible for my wife.

After 1 year everything is still working as intended.

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


Nicely made, I have fabricated many items including tilt bed trailers and I think this is well made, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because they need to do do more research on different applications, this camper only had fiberglass and foam in the mount area because of the insulated basement, I through bolted it with a plate on the back for washers, and added self locking nuts. I included a picture of the camper in my home shop.


Comments
Very good

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


Thanks for the great communication. I did receive the product as
described. I actually used this product on my Tacoma truck. I have
parents that are old and they need stairs to get into my truck. I tried
folding plastic steps but didn't work that well. Not too sturdy. I
finally found your product that I thought would work for my use. I
thought I needed the different types of mounting bracket, but didn't
need it. I just riveted the top arm hinge and rested the top of stair
arm on the truck side runners. I also riveted a neoprene pad on the
bottom leg to help stabilize the bottom from slipping. It works great
for what I needed it to do. Here are some pictures.

How did this set of stairs fold up and store? On this truck it looks like they would be sticking out in folded position, if the door was closed.I need this for my Class C RV. Its not very high off the ground and 1 or 2 steps should do it. I have to measure it when I get back home. My assumption is that they would fold up and store underneath the RV like the present dented steel ones are storing or stored before they dented up.Please add some measurements of height when folded up.Thanks!
-- comment by: Minerva - 04/03/2014

This particular set does not permanently hang underneath the RV. There is a bracket that attaches to the frame of the RV. When you arrive at the campsite, you pull out the stairs, unfold and set them into the bracket. When it's time to go, you remove the steps, fold them up and store them in the RV. The steps that stay underneath are Pull-Out and Electric Steps. I have added links to these categories below.

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


I have an enclosed patio with a raised (~23") deck built on a concrete slab. Occasionally I need to access the patio via the fence gate. These steps provide an excellent solution for outside patio entry as they can be easily removed and installed when required. They do not encroach on the patio area. They can be stored in the garage for winter. They are light weight but strong.


Comments
After a year of use I continue to enjoy the use of the stairs. Its been a great solution to my patio situation.

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


I would give these steps 10 Stars if I could. They have really saved my knees over my previous step system. I also really like the wider and deeper steps. When I was younger I had the smaller brophy steps. But my older knees really like the bigger steps now, and for me the extra cost was really worth it.

Well built product, I’m sure the Brophy camper scissor steps will be satisfactory. Probably outlast my camper. Perfect experience researching, ordering, and receiving the product. I really appreciate the way etrailer customer service helps, responds, and keeps you informed.

Review from a similar Aluminum Scissor Steps in RV and Camper Steps


My husband built a truck camper, lighter than commercial, to serve our back road adventures. He considered several options for steps and came upon your scissor steps! He ordered, they arrived in just a few days and was pleased with the ease of attaching, folding and sturdiness of the steps. Thank you for a great product.
