Review of Brophy Enclosed Trailer Parts AS23


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy RV Aluminum Scissor Steps. These scissor steps are going to mount onto your RV or camper to make getting in and out much easier. This particular unit is a 3-step assembly. It's going to expand from 24 to 30 inches tall, so if the area where you need some stairs is between those measurements, then these steps would work well for your application. On each step we're going to have a nice non-slip tread design. That's going to help add grip and prevent falls. The stairs there at that base will self-adjust to the terrain for even more increased stability.

There's also a optional handrail that's going to add more stability and safety to the unit. That's available here are etrailer.com, sold separately with part number AHR3. The unit can fold for easy compact storage. It's going to be made from a lightweight, heave gauge aluminum construction and it's a very simple installation. It's going to come with the mounting bracket and the hardware. Mounting bracket is this piece right here.

The mounting bracket would secure to your camper using the included hardware. It's going to have the v-clamps to hold that upper arm of the scissor steps. The mounting bracket's going to measure 24 inches long, it's 1 inch tall by 1 inch wide. It should be placed an eighth of an inch below the lowest part of the door on your RV or camper. It's going to feature 5 mounting slots, 5 mounting holes.

You can see those spaced out there. The distance that we have from the center of this hole to the center of this hole is going to measure 21 inches, then we're going to have 5 and 1/4 of an inch between each mounting hole. The product's made right here in the USA. Really nice, sturdy, compact, also lightweight design with that aluminum construction. It's actually going to feature a weight capacity of 300 pounds. Again, the expanded height is from 24 to 30 inches.

Retracted, when it's fully folded down's going to be about 10 and 1/2 inches. Taking a look at the step dimensions real quick, it's going to give us an overall width measurement of right around 24 inches. The depth that we have of just the step portion itself, that's going to measure 8 and 1/2 inches. Each one's going to be the same. Then the thickness or the height here of the lip is going be about an inch and a half. Now the distance that we have from the top of one step to the top of the other, that's going to measure about 7 and 7/8 of an inch. Again, it's got a nice 300 pound weight capacity. Now the step is only to be used while the vehicle is in a stationary position. It should not be mounted permanently because these are designed to be moved during travel. So you'd want to use the mounting bracket provided that way you can easily remove prior to vehicle travel. Really easy to do when it comes to folding it up. My favorite way to do it, which I find the easiest, is to remove that upper arm from the bracket, and then you simply just lift the steps up, push down, and then you can see how easily they collapse. Then here at the back, it's going to have a keeper. That way when the stairs are folded, they stay folded and provide nice, compact storage without them expanding back out. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy RV Aluminum Scissor Steps.
