The Torklift story starts in 1958 when Jon Kay began working at a hitch and tow shop in Tacoma, Washington. Through his experience, he decided he wanted to open his own shop someday. Torklift International continues to develop products and programs to further the RV and automotive industries. We maintain our commitment to customer service by being available 24 hours a day and living up to their Legendary Lifetime Warranty promise. As we continue on in this article we will highlight their SMARTSTEP GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION steps for RVs.



The SMARTSTEP® GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION® step is the first and only step system designed for all RV towables that is versatile and flexible to adapt to any type of terrain. The step entry system is revolutionary for several reasons. Featuring 7 inches of precision elevation adjustment, the SMARTSTEP® GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION® step system has 3 positions of upper adjustment between the RV entry and top step, plus an additional 5 positions of lower adjustment with the All Terrain Landing Gear adjustable feet. As the only step in the world that features this patent pending and unique level of adjustment at both the top and the bottom of the step system, this step allows all options for accommodating any terrain.

Easy Bolt-On Installation

The easy bolt-on installation fits into the factory step compartment, replacing your factory steps. Since the steps are installed in the factory compartment, they remain conveniently outside the RV. Drawbridge style steps that fold up and store inside the unit fling and dump dirt, water, sand and other unwanted debris all over you and inside your RV.  With these steps you can avoid any unnecessary mess.

Locking Mechanism

By connecting the RV to the ground the unstable and unsafe diving board feeling associated with factory steps is completely eliminated. With a locking mechanism and quick release lever, the step system for towables easily lowers and raises. In most cases the steps provide a significant improvement in ground clearance while traveling compared to a factory trailer step.

The step’s adjustable features are like planting roots each time you deploy the steps, giving you that feeling of security everywhere your RV takes you. With SMARTSTEP® GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION®, you know your family can safely enter your trailer or fifth wheel day or night, rain or shine and worry-free. Best of all, the steps are firmly planted so your unit no longer shakes back and forth with every entry and exit of pets or people.

Multi-link Hinge

The multi-link hinge design steps accommodate any space constraint so it doesn’t matter how close you park to structures, trees, service bays or inside of a storage facility. Steps can be easily extended in tight spaces unlike other step systems that require additional space for clearance. Instead of being blocked out of your RV by step ladders that store inside the entry way, you can access your RV any time.

Self Illuminating

Similar to the staircase found in your home, the SMARTSTEP GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION entry step system has the shortest riser height in the industry at only 7.5-inches. The self-illuminating steps also glow in the dark for up to 10 hours with no batteries needed. These steps will glow after just five minutes of light exposure! Manufactured from 100% rust-free aircraft grade aluminum and stainless steel, the trailer steps have SureGrip™ built-in tread that creates a no-slip surface. It is extraordinarily sturdy with a level of stability that is simply unmatched.


To maximize a lifetime of smooth action and ease of use, the RV steps are assembled carefully by hand and adjusted to precise torque. The unique bushing bearing design is used on each side of every hinge point on the steps, preventing the step hinges from coming loose over time. The bushings act as a bearing surface that can handle significant tension without over-stiffening the step configuration, a common problem found on rusting factory steps. Due to these features, Torklift’s GlowStep line of RV steps guarantee longevity, durability and quality.


Unlike other trailer entry steps, the SMARTSTEP GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION is truly a complete step system. The system is tailored to you with the options of adding additional feature such as the GlowGuide HandrailSafeStep pet barriers and DirtDestroyer shoe cleaning attachment. Available ranging from two to six steps, steps can easily be added and removed so you can take the GlowStep Revolution step entry system with you when you trade in for your next RV.  In contrast to steps that drill into the vinyl and wood of the RV’s entry threshold, SMARTSTEP GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION steps are completely bolt-on. This avoids vulnerability to possible water damage from drilling holes, and upholds the value and integrity of your RV.  With applications to fit industry standard measurements of 27.5” or 25-25.5″ width step entry openings, use the SMARTSTEP® GLOWSTEP REVOLUTION® Spacer Kit or Vertical Stud Adapter bracket for installation on any trailer or fifth wheel.
