Lance Camper has unveiled the ultraGLOWstep, self-illuminating steps for RVs. Designed in collaboration with Torklift International and based on Torklift’s Revolution, the step system is designed for all RV towables and is versatile and flexible enough to adapt to any type of terrain.
The ultraGLOWstep provides 7 inches of precision elevation adjustment, landing gear that levels on uneven terrain and a bushing bearing, that is bolted for maximum stability and longevity.
Made of lightweight aircraft-grade aluminum and stainless steel, the staircase is standard equipment on the Lance 825 and 1172 truck camper models and optional equipment on the Lance 1685, 1985, 1995, 2185, 2285, 2295, 2375 models and the all-new 2465 Ultra-Light travel trailer models.
The self-illuminating steps glow in the dark for up to 10 hours after just five minutes of light exposure without using batteries. A locking mechanism secures the steps for safe travel and better ground clearance and a SureGrip step tread eliminates jagged holes often found on factory steps. Lance offers a lifetime warranty on the UltraGLOWstep.
