I use a macerator pump and store ten sections of 3/4" garden hose in my rear bumper. The gauge of the garden hose does not rub through like the stinky slinky. Very clean system.

Looks ok,,, but drilling to small holes & using 2 small bolts,,, or bent nails is a hole lot easer & cheaper !!! Unless you do not have a drill & a couple of bolts laying around ???

We have those, but our trailer is still under warranty, bumper is considered part of the frame, we have two years to go on that before we can drill or cut into it. We won't lose the plus even if they come off.

I think you are a little paranoid about voiding the warranty by drilling a couple of holes in the rear bumper to secure the end caps. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the structural integrity of anything.

I'm sure if it isn't he will find out. The mod is still fine and just a different approach for others to ponder.

I don't use the bumper for storage....don't want it to fall off
