I have a 24R. I cut some 4 inch PVC pipe to length so that I could zip tie it above my bumper without impacting the rear storage compartment door. I put a cap (with holes in it) on the inboard end, and drilled a couple of holes on the outboard end for a smaller piece of PVC used to hold the hose in place. I've attached a couple of photos...

Anyway, I've got one of these assemblies mounted on each side above the bumper with three VERY heavy duty zip ties. Each of them holds one 10 foot section of the heavy duty red sewer hose. I needed to be a little careful with the zip ties - if the outboard end was mounted too tightly it would distort the PVC and make it difficult to insert / remove the hose.

For Solera models without the rear compartment, you could perhaps use one long length of PVC across as much of the back as you needed.

Nats, mine is a 2014. I'm still trying to figure out all the systems. I didn't get a sewer hose with mine and the one I purchased (with a clear section for viewing "progress") does not fit.

Dave, that's a nifty solution. I'll have to take some measurements to see if that would work. I've got a nice, big storage area, so the PVC can't be too long.

I fit 2 lengths of hose, 2 elbows, a donut & wrench in my sewer hose compartment. It does take a little wiggling and I compress my hoses before attaching their end caps so that they're short. Guess it depends on what kind of hose you have but works for me.

As have others, I improvised and attached a 5" vinyl fence post cover (Lowe's) to the bumper with 2 bolts cushioned by rubber grommets. Inside is a 4 inch vinyl gutter which slides out to access the hose. When deployed, the gutter can also serve to keep the hose straight.

Another storage issue was in the shower. There are three corner shelves which aren't practical for holding items while traveling. I ordered Interdesign, Suction Cup, Corner baskets. Alas. Suction cups won't work on the textured surface of the shower enclosure. A thin bead of silicone applied to the suction cup did the trick! Its not permanent and can be removed for cleaning. Relocating one of the suction cups to the bottom of the basket strengthened the adhesion. The basket and contents remained in place despite California roadways best efforts to dislodge them.

I liked the Interdesign products and ordered the 9" Bronze cabinet door towel holders. They are a perfect fit and do double duty since you can pull on them to open the cabinet door.

The photos tell the story.

Nice pics, MiataHorder. You did a nice job on it and the idea of using the gutter to support the hose is a good one too.


I agree with you about the shelves in the shower -- pretty useless for things if the rig is moving. My shower caddy sits on the floor until I can decide where to install it (with silicone).


I don't have an oven below the burners in mine (microwave/convection oven above) and there is a nice towel holder below the burners (but if you use it, you can't access the drawer behind the towel bar very easily). At least it has a towel bar.
