Review of Brophy Enclosed Trailer Parts AS24


Today we're going to be taking a look at the Brophy RV Aluminium Scissor Steps. The scissor steps are designed to mount onto your RV or camper to make getting in and out much easier. This is a four step assembly that's going to expand from thirty one to thirty nine inches tall. If the area where you need some stairs is between these measurements, then these scissor steps will work well for your application. You can see that located on each step, we're going to have a nice gripped area. This is non-slip tread on each step that's going to help add grip and prevent falls. The stairs are going to self-adjust to the terrain for increased stability here at the bottom.

Now, there is an optional hand rail. Part number AHR4. That item is sold separately, but that'll add even more stability and safety to the unit. This is a fordable scissor stair. That way, when you're done using it, you can detach it from the included mounting bracket and then it'll fold easily for nice compact storage. The unit's going to be made from a light weight, heavy gauge aluminium construction.

Very simple installation, with the included mounting bracket and the included hardware. It's going to come with four lag screws that can easily be installed to hold the bracket in place. The bracket is this piece right here. It's going to mount about one eighth of an inch below the door. That measurement can be found in the included installation instructions.

It would mount like this, and then that top piece right here, would mount right here in the holds. That would hold it up close to the door. Really nice design. Nice sturdy construction. The bracket itself is going to measure about twenty four inches long. It's going to be one inch tall by one inch wide here on these lips.

Then you can see it has five mounting holes. The mounting holes are going to be separated on center from outer to outer hole by about twenty one inches. The distance between each one is going to be five and one quarter of an inch. The mounting bracket and the hardware is included, as well as detailed installation instructions. The product is made right here in the USA. Again, the expanded height is going to be anywhere from thirty one inches to thirty nine inches. Retracted height, when it's fully folded up . I'll show you how to fold it up here towards the end of the video . That's going to be twelve and three quarters of an inch. Take a look at some other measurements real quick. The steps are going to give us an over all width of about twenty four inches wide. They're going to give us a depth, from front to back, of eight and a half inches. Then the height, right here at the lip, that's going to be about one and . Looks to be about an inch and a half thick or so. The distance from the top of one step to the next step is going to be the same for each one, that's going to be seven and seven eighths of an inch. These steps are going to feature a weight capacity of three hundred pounds. Real quick, I just want to mention that the step is only to be used while the vehicle is in a stationary position. It should not be mounted permanently. You want to use the included bracket, that way you can easily remove the stairs prior to vehicle travel. Again, they do fold for compact storage. A couple different ways that you can fold it up. Once it's mounted, you can lift up on the bottom and then just push it into itself. Another way that's very easy to do is remove the arm from the bracket, lift the steps up, and then push them down. Here on the backside, it's go the clip. It goes right over that piece right there, snaps together. That way, once they're folded, they stay folded. That's going to do it for today's look at the Brophy RV Aluminium Scissor Steps.
