Elkhart Tool & Die

Elkhart Tool & Die, Inc. was established in 1932. When the earliest of the recreational vehicles started being produced, there was an immediate need for an entry step to help RV’ers into their campers. ETD was there and we’ve been making the highest quality RV manual steps since. This has lead us to be considered one of the oldest RV supplier/manufacturers in the industry! We also specialize in continuous hinges and can cater to some of your special metal fabrication needs. You will find the vast majority of our parts at your local distributor or dealership. Dealerships can call us for a list of national distributors they can purchase from.
