Here's my sewer hose holder, 5" vinyl post with rain gutter. Held to frame with SS bolts with fender washers clamped over the top of the frame web. Two on the inside, two on the outside of the frame rail, so 4 on each side of the camper. For each bolt you need 3 fender washers: one inside the vinyl post, one on top of the frame rail, and the 3rd you cut in half and sandwich between the post and the top fender washer (makes up for the thickness of the frame rail.

I got the post and end caps at Home Depot and the rain gutter and gutter ends at Lowe's. Also, I didn't really say it above, but ALL the hardware needs to be SS (bolts, nuts, fender washers, eye bolts, etc).

I switched to this type too. 2-1/2 years later haven't lost a cap since switching.

DH solved our problem with this by wrapping doubled backed tape (he uses it for golf club grips) once around the inner "fins" then tapped them in with a rubber hammer.

Of course, we don't use the bumper to store anything in.

Attach a bungee-wrap to each skewer.
Insert your new "end-cap skewers".

Hey now, your end-caps are secure, and that skewer won't come out and puncture a tire behind you. Now be nice and share the left over skewers from the set with your camping friends, or, well, cook something nice on the pit.
Great easy & simple solution!

Don't like putting a wet stinky slinky in a 4" square carbon steel tube that can't be painted or inspected very well.

We bought a semi-clear square plastic box about six inches tall to store ours in. The box goes into the belly storage bay.

Drill a small (1/8") hole thru top and bottom of bumper and edge of caps. Stick a cheap shis-ka-bob skewer thru the holes and snip it off about 2" below the bottom. Really cheap, quick fix.

Very cool setup. Saw a camper at one campground that was using the vinyl gutter to keep the slinky from bulging out. Will have to check into that as well.

Thanks everyone for the advice, I have ordered a pair of the WirthCo bumper caps.

Gives the shis-ka-bobs more flavor too! At least that one.
