Fishing Rod Transport

If you were like me, you just stuck your rods in your Berkshire basement storage kinda on top of everything else...

Well, I got tired of worrying that they might get broken and having to remove them to get to other stuff they were laying on top of....

Soooooo...

I came up with this solution:

I took six 1" dia PVC pipes and cut them into 6' lengths.... (I'm only traveling with six rods) I then cut four cross pieces (see pic) and zip tied it all together. Painted it all black and I then zip tied the entire unit to the two raised rails and I now have a way to transport six fully rigged rod safely and out of the way....

Looks like a great idea! I'd be careful if you have a heavier reel though as it might result in some wear where the rod contacts the PVC. Purely theoretical. Awesome share!
I was thinking of a similar apparatus for my sewer hoses since the fittings are too large to fit in the manufacturer's slot.

For sewer hoses, I went to army/navy store and bought a large rubber-lined duffel bag and I simply rinse hoses out and put them in this bag... Close it up and toss it in storage compartment....

I just picked up a small plastic storage bin at WalMart. Since I have 2 lengths of sewer hose connected to each other, it won't fit into the sewer storage on the coach but the storage bin works out great.
