Telesteps Step Stool

Need an extra boost to reach the roof vent inside your RV or load a kayak on top of your SUV? This step stool lets you access those hard-to-reach areas in and around your RV or vehicle, making it easier to change out lightbulbs, grab gear from higher-up cabinets in the kitchen, and load a cargo box onto the top of your vehicle. This aluminum step stool is sturdy enough to support your weight, yet lightweight enough that you're able to carry it around with you on the campsite.


To use the stool, simply pull the two halves out until the stepping area is flat. When you're finished using the stool, carefully push upward on the hinges, and take care not to pinch your fingers. Then fold the stool into a compact size that you can easily store in any tight nook or compartment on your RV to help save space.

by:

This little stool is the best. It's so strong that it withstood being run over by my full size cargo van! Unfortunately it didn't fair as well the second time I ran it over with my van. I'm now on my second telesteps folding stool and hoping to avoid putting this one through the same rigorous testing as the first.



by:

It is very sturdy and stable. Perfect for reaching into the back of my truck or for guests to get into the back seat.



by:

This is very sturdy and easy to fold up.



by:

Arrived sooner than expected and immediately put to good use. Very light and just the right height for adjusting my kayak on my RAVs roof.



by:

Nice, simple stool. I've broken 3 plastic folding stools over the years and wanted something that would hold up. This little guy seems to be the ticket.

  • Will SportRack J-Style Kayak Carrier Fit Rola Roof Rack on 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe w/Panoramic Roof
    Yes, the Swagman Contour Rooftop Kayak Carrier System # S65148 will fit Rhino-Rack ROC25 roof rack # RR92SR for your 2013 Hyundai Santa Fe with the panoramic glass roof. This carrier holds one kayak so you would need 2 of them to carry 2 kayaks. If reaching the roof is a stretch I also recommend a step stool such as # TE97FR rated for up to 300 pounds.

  • Fit of Camco RV Roof Vent Insulator in Roof Vent Opening
    The vast majority of RV roof vents measure a nominal 14 x 14-inches and fit into a roof opening that is naturally slightly larger, usually 14-1/4 x 14-1/4-inches. The small 1/2-inch difference you noted may simply be a result of shrinking of the original plastic vent material which does occur from UV exposure. The Camco RV Vent Insulator # CAM45192 you referenced will fit just fine in your RV to help keep you protected from the cold and sun. The fleece cover is removable for easy vacuum...

  • Fit of Rhino Rack Roof Basket RMCB02 on Factory Crossbars of 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

  • Can 2016 Kia Sorento with Factory Roof Rack Carry Cargo Bag and Surfboard
    As long as there is ample space for the two rooftop cargo items, your soft cargo bag and your surfboard, and so long as their combined weight is within the limits for the roof rack and roof, you can load both. Your Kia owner's manual should indicate the weight rating for the factory rack. I reviewed an online edition and on page 4-169 Kia notes the factory rack can handle up to 220-lbs provided that the total load is evenly distributed across the rack. You might check your printed manual...

    Based on your concerns and the height issue the bike rack I would go with is the Rhino-Rack MountainTrail Rooftop Bike Carrier - Fork Mount Item # RBC035 because it is versatile and being a fork mount means that it will be more stable like you said. Something else you may be interested in that will make loading and unloading the bikes easier is the Telesteps folding step stool # TE97FR.

    You can mount the Yakima Skybox 18 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07336 on your Yakima roof crossbars so that one side of the box mounting hardware sits outside of the rack's foot assembly.

    There are a couple measurements that you must take to ensure that the Malone Profile18B Rooftop Cargo Box # MPG911 will fit the roof of your 2019 Jeep Cherokee.
