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.

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.


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.

  • Rooftop Cargo Weight Capacity for Yakima Skybox 16 Cargo Box Y07335 on 2013 Cadillac SRX
    The Yakima Skybox 16 Rooftop Cargo Box # Y07335 offers a 16-cubic-foot volume capacity, plenty for the typical cargo of three persons. Yakima does not apply a specific weight rating to their boxes since they are never used alone, only with a specific roof rack and on a specific vehicle. In the case of your 2013 Cadillac SRX the highest-rated aftermarket roof racks we offer have a 165-lb capacity. This includes racks from makers like Yakima, Rhino-Rack, Thule and others and this limit is...

  • Malone Rooftop Cargo Box MPG910 Fit for 2012 Volkswagen Touareg with Whispbar Roof Rack
    I checked with my contact at Malone for confirmation of compatibility of their rooftop cargo box # MPG910 on your VW Touareg that has a Whispbar aero-style roof rack. My contact said that even with only 1-1/2-inches of space between your bars and the roof the mounting hardware for the Malone box should have enough space to install properly. A handy accessory for rooftop cargo is the Telesteps Step # TE97FR. Inexpensive, lightweight and fully-assembled, this folding step makes it easy to...

  • 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...

    I confirmed with Thule that on your 2010 Mazda 3 Hatchback you can use their extra-large rooftop cargo boxes. Confirmed fits for your car include the 22-cubic-foot Motion XT, part # TH629907. A review video is linked to show the Motion XT.

    It is easy to find out if the Thule Motion XT # TH629706 rooftop cargo box will fit your vehicles' factory bars and also allow your rear hatches to open without any interference. First, let's talk about bar fit. Both carriers have mounting hardware that will fit on factory crossbars up to 3-1/2-inches wide x 1-11/16-inches tall. Just measure your bars to confirm they are compatible with the mounting hardware. Second, we will consider the bar spread on each car. Both boxes work on crossbars...

    The Rola Roof Mounted Cargo Basket 59504 uses mounting hardware that will fit roof rack crossbars up to 1-1/4- tall x 3-1/4-inches wide, AS LONG AS the centers of the two bars are spaced apart one of four specific dimensions.

  • Fit of Rhino Rack Roof Basket RMCB02 on Factory Crossbars of 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
    The knobs on your 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee's OEM roof crossbars are located near the outside edges of the bars. If there is enough room between the two knobs for the Rhino-Rack basket # RMCB02 to fit - it is 42-13/16-inches wide - then you have no issue. Just measure the available bar space between the knobs to be sure the basket can rest down fully on the bars without interfering with the knobs.

    The SportRack Vista XL Roof Cargo Box # SR7018 will mount on just about any vehicle whose roof rack bars are spaced at one of the three specific dimensions noted in the specs: 25-7/8, 27-7/8 or 29-7/8-inches apart when measured from the center of one bar to the center of the other. This is a requirement of the mounting hardware. If your bars can move you can see whether they can be positioned at one of these three distances. If not please let me know their center-to-center spacing and I...

  • Replacement Mounting Hardware and Keys for Karrite Voyager Rooftop Cargo Box
    The best choice for replacement mounting hardware, locks and keys for your Karrite Voyager cargo box is our kit # TH05603. This kit consists of u-bolts, plates and knobs to secure the carrier on your minivan's roof rack. A handy accessory that I often recommend to users of rooftop cargo carriers is a simple folding step, part # TE97FR from Telesteps.

  • Thule Rooftop Cargo Box for 2017 Mazda CX-5 with Factory Rails and Crossbars
    Yes, indeed. Thule's Motion XT L rooftop cargo box # TH629706 is a confirmed fit on the factory roof rack crossbars on your 2017 Mazda CX-5. I verified this item's fit with Thule. This cargo carrier is an excellent choice since it is fairly lightweight (42-lbs) for its substantial 16-cubic-foot capacity; many similar-size cargo boxes weigh more. This is great not just for handling the box but also since it means more of your roof's weight capacity is left available for your actual cargo...

    The SportRack Upshift Roof Bike Rack - Frame Mount - Clamp On - Steel Item # SR4883 will fit the factory roof rack on your 2012 Honda CR-V. Customers who have purchased this rack have rated it high and you can examine the reviews on the product page if you'd like. This rack holds the bikes at the frame which means it is wider than a fork mount style rack. In order to get 3 bikes to fit side by side what I recommend is to get 3 of these racks and have the middle one facing backwards so...

  • 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...

    The Rhino-Rack extra-large heavy-duty steel cargo basket # RMCB02 is designed to work on almost any type and shape of roof crossbar, including the factory bars on most vehicles such as your 2015 Toyota Highlander. It is really easy to check for a proper fit.

  • Roof Bike Rack Recommendation for a 2017 Subaru Outback with Factory Roof Rack
    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.

  • 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 Yakima Skybox 18 on Saturn Outlook Fitted with Yakima Roof Rack & Fly Rod Holder
    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. In order to do this you will need to ensure you have enough bar space next to the fishing rod box. You'll need to have no less than 27-inches total of available crossbar for the Skybox 18. This dimension is the combination of the 21-inch spacing between the box's mounting slots plus the 6-inch distance from the...

Universal mounting hardware allows tool-free installation using the included hand knobs, U-bolts, and plates which secure the box to your crossbars.

  • Replacement Key for Sears Sport 20-SV Roof Cargo Box
    On a rooftop cargo box like your Sears Sport 20-SV the lock core number can usually be seen on the face of the lock cylinder, as shown in the example photo. The codes are lightly stamped or etched into the face of the lock cylinder and this code should be visible from the exterior whether the lock is in a locked or unlocked state. Once you find that code you can select the proper replacement key by adding that code to prefix THKEYN _ _ _ _ . In the example in the photo the key to order...
