Need advice...I have an Artic Fox/Northwood 1150 that I really enjoy; however, I want a better step than the stock step I have. I have a ground step stool that I use to step onto the camper step which helps but, on the truck it is still a heck of a step up. I'm 6'2" so not a big deal, but someone 5'2"....Anyway, considering the scissor step from Eastend Campers but not sure if this will work. Anyone have suggestions?
I went with the Glowstep by Torklift. I also use a 4 step set up, and it mounts to the rear bumper of my 1140 (same as the 1150). I then used one of the factory steps, inverted (upside/down), and built an extention piece that slides under the factory step to raise the height plus it widens that last step while entering and exiting the TC. When we travel I use just the glowsteps, but if we park and set up for a few days I always install the inverted step and insert for added security and comfort.

I suggest that you take a look at the TorkLift GlowSteps.
I have a similar set of scissor steps on my TC and they work great, stow easily, and are surprisingly stable. The only downside is that they are very slippery when wet or icy.
I also mounted our scissor steps to camper flip over step in the stored position. It decreases the step out of the camper, which on our basement-is a lot. It also gives a bit of a landing, width of flip step plus width of top scissor step. Going flush to bumper was just too much from door sill.
But to answere you question-yes they would work-just options how you mount. Ours came with the ushaped bracket shown that mounts-then the steps have a bracket that slips in it- I removed the step bracket, slip edge of step into mounted u bracket so have a larger landing at door. Ive sinces added spacers shown on both sides of flip step -decreased distance from door to 'landing' another inch.
Tapped bracket and added the thumb screw in center of mounted bracket, drilled a hole in top step flange. After inserting step turn in the screw to keep steps from jumping out. We carry our steps loose. If not setting up the scissor steps-we just use flip over step & small folding step thats stored inside of door if more than just hopping in.
I had the same situation with the high step from the bumper to the entry. I got the Glow Steps 6 step, and mounted it just under the door. the steps are now equal from the ground to the doorway. Only slight inconvenience is that the steps must be folded up and bungeed up to get access to the small pullout tray. The steps are nice and safe. I have the Glow Handle too. The steps are a popular item here with fellow TCers. Pictures in my Photobucket albums.

I mounted a four step scissor step from Step-up Products on my Af990. They work very well, sturdy, no wobbles, plus it folds nicely under the door. I did modify them by spraying on bedliner and the no-slip grit you can get at Home Depot. Great step, good price, and he was local to me.
