I see you used pipe strapping too and screwed it into the bumper. What do you store in the bumper and do the screws(or are they bolts/nuts) snag what's inside?

Timex,
I don't have anything in the bumper...and yes the screws go into the bumper. I made the second one to store the other section of sewer hose.

I took the fencepost off the Roo last week. Brought the Mini Lite home Saturday. Re-installed the fencepost on Sunday. Now the wife wants it painted black because the Mini Lite is Oyster Shell, and there's a black section between the Oyster Shell and the fencepost. So it's whiteness sticks out like a sore thumb.

So now I'm pulling it off to paint it black.

That's what the DW said, but I'm not sure it will do the job. But I guess I've got nothing to lose, and a lot to gain. So I'll probably try that first.

Thanks.

Huh you don't scrape the rear bumper pulling into son places? I would not be able to do that as my Roo nearly clears my driveway with the bumper and jacks. I thought of mounting one on the top of the bumper though.
