From truck to SUV need some help

I am about to sell my z71 in favor of A suburban like SUV with 3rd row. So what do I do now with all the essentials I used to throw in the bed that make a mess or smell bad? For example the firewood and the sewer line.

Why would you have to put the sewer line in the SUV?
Can't you store it in the bumper?

For the firewood just get a tarp or some sort of plastic liner and throw it in the back. Or you would always get a roof cargo carrier.

When we had a travel trailer and suburban, we used the trailers bike rack for fire wood, or, like said above, a couple of decent boxes packed with firewood. Sewer hose I would put in bumper and eventually got a storage tube for it. I haul considerably more with my truck and fiver combo then when we had the burb, but often don't need everything I bring...

You can put cut firewood into a large rubbermaid tote and place inside the camper. Not sure about sewer hose if you don't have a rear bumper. You can by hose storage tubes and mount on the tt.

I made a hose carrier with 6" plastic post cover with a gutter for a tray. I put my wood in large totes.

I'm not the most experienced camper on this forum, but I've never been to a campground that didn't sell firewood or have at least one local vendor nearby. Why would you haul firewood to a campground?
PS. In New York it's illegal to haul firewood more than 50 miles from its origin to prevent the spread of dutch elm and other diseases.

Rules are different in areas. In my area, they want $10-15 for 5 sticks. I can fill 3 30gal totes and burn anytime I want. There can't be bark on my wood though

Sometimes buy firewood at the campsite but I don't want to be locked in to always having to buy firewood. I love the plastic tote idea. For the sewer line, it didn't fit into the bumper of my old trailer because the line is the heavy duty style with quick disconnect and the ears stick out to far. Funny thing is I haven't tried with my new trailer because I was so used to doing it the other way. I will give it a shot. Regardless it will be a change not being able to throw muddy or wet stuff in The bed of the truck.

Because we had a tree cut down in our backyard and all the wood is taking up space in our shed at home. Tree was cut down 4 or 5 years ago and we've only gone through about half the wood.

Mostly because different friends of ours have also had trees cut down the past few years. Then they let us have the firewood.

I honestly don't remember the last time I paid for firewood.
