Can 4-Step TorkLift GlowStep Revolution Scissor Steps Be Used in Place of a Factory 3-Step System


We have a 5th wheel rv and would like to install the Torklift steps. The problem is should I use the TLA8004 four step or the TLA8003 three step. Our current steps are 3 pull out with the top step about 30 inches from the ground with 9inch between steps. WE would like to have around 7inch between steps so I am thinking the 4 step would work but am concerned about the steps being level when extended. I dont find any info on your site or even the Torklift site about fitment. Thanks for any information you can provide.

When replacing steps on a 5th wheel trailer you will want to stay with the same number of steps unless going to more steps retains the same retracted dimensions of your existing steps. For aftermarket steps there is no fit information in regards to specific trailers. You would have to go by the measurements.

TorkLift steps # TLA8004 have a mounting base that is 27-7/16 inches wide and 12 inches deep. When retracted the steps hang down 16-17 inches from where they mount. The 3-step model, # TLA8003, has the same base dimensions but hang down 13-3/4 to 14-3/4 inches.

If the new steps hang down further than the old steps in could lead to ground clearance problems.
