The GlowGuide by Torklift International now works with many slide-out towables, the company said in a news release Wednesday (Nov. 2).

“After testing with our engineering department and customers, the GlowGuide now works with slide-out towables,” Torklift General Manager Jay Taylor said. “You now have a better option for your RV handrail that will make getting in and out of your RV much easier because this handrail goes all the way to the ground to provide the best stability. No modifications were made to the handrail. It was a matter of conducting enough testing.”

The GlowGuide handrail extends from the top of the RV step all the way to the ground. It’s designed to fold up and store “in place” on the side of the RV or can be stored anywhere in the RV.

This handrail system is ultra lightweight at only 44 ounces, can go from in-use to storage in seconds and telescopes in length from 32-inches to 53-inches, allowing plenty of distance to work with.

“We have officially had customers install the GlowGuide on the Heartland Big Horn 5th wheel and the Grand Design Solitude, just to name a few,” Taylor said. “On all these towable trailers, the GlowGuide can be installed on the actual slide-out making it so you don’t have to lean forward or backward to use the built in handrail.”

The upper door mount of the GlowGuide arm runs up to the door entryway, the lower step mount arm runs down to attach to your current step system and the strut arm runs diagonally and attaches to the slide-out portion of your RV. All three arms can telescope to the same or different lengths needed for perfect GlowGuide usage.

“The OEM grab bar did not extend very far. You had to reach backward while going down the steps and when entering you had to lean forward and reach out,” said customer Marc Peloquin. “With the GlowGuide you don’t have to reach or lean, total support in and out. This is important for me and even more for my wife. She has a prosthetic leg.”

As an added feature, the GlowGuide also has the ability to glow for up to ten hours in the dark, making it easy to enter and exit your RV, even at night with little to no lighting.
