For those that have experience with typical RV steps you know they are at best challenging to work with and far less safe while entering and exiting an RV.

The gap from the last step of your RV to the ground is commonly much higher than the typical rise in RV steps. To fix this issue, some folks take matters into their own hands. Often people purchase collapsing stool steps or improvise with a jury-rigged platform to put underneath to shorten the gap in step rise.

Another challenge occurs when parked on a swell or a small hill that will not allow the bottom step to fold out requiring a shovel to dig out a place for the step to deploy. For those that have difficulty with mobility, the step configuration becomes a significant challenge.

Almost all RV steps are made from steel and are susceptible to rust which leads to seized steps and hinge failures.

We want to see these #rvstepfails or step stories that you see while camping. If you or someone you know has ever come up with a creative way to fix this step issue, send us your pictures and stories on our Twitter feed @Torklift or by clicking here to email

You will be netered into a montly drawing for a chance to win prizes!

I have an Arctic Fox 990 truck camper on an F350. I have the Fox Landing and didn't care for how high the steps were. I saw the GlowSteps and figured I could adapt these to the fox landing. This is what I came up with.

The project is not complete as of yet. So far so good. See pictures below:

    I need your stairway to my heaven!

    Summer camping is our thing. My camper is my summer haven and heaven! Last week we drove the hour from our home to the place we keep our camper over winter. We had some things to take there In anticipation of the 2016 season. When we opened the steps to enter, we discovered the welding on one side of our steps had let go. We have been brainstorming solutions all week, and today my Trailer Life magazine arrived and I saw my stairway to heaven on those pages. I don't have a photo of the fail, but what I do have is the ability to spread the word to heaps of people about how good the Glowstep Revolution is! That, along with MY #RVSTEPFAIL and a grateful personality are the reasons you should pick me to win these amazing steps.
