You know what makes this an excellent project? Best I've seen in a long time. It's the pictures and explanation of the complete project. I did this to my Lexington 300 before trading it, I had one for sewage hoses and another beside it for my fishing poles. Much easier project than most think and we'll worth it. Again congratulations on a job well done.

Awesome job and great job posting all the photo's. People are going to find this very informative and helpful. I am sure it will be cited by others for many years to come.

I have done this mod to both my 5er and my TT toy hauler for deer hunting. One of the most useful mods out there. Good job!

Planning on going to go to the store today or tomorrow to get the parts for this mod.
Thanks for the info and pictures. Should hopefully help me to avoid (the usual) repeated trips to the store (I always forget something).

Did you use self-tappers to mount the brackets to the frame, or did you use bolts with locking nuts ?

Great idea and a great installation. The pictures sure make it look easy. Might have to try this one of these days.

I used bolts with nylon lock nuts on both of mine.

Just did mine yesterday. The drawer can double as a support for the hose on uneven ground.

I used sell tapers, but that was just because I had them in the garage.

I've been wanting to do this for a long time. Actually over the last 3 rigs we've owned, and STILL have not done it. Problem is, nobody carries the posts. Not lowes or HD, at least within a 2 hour range of me. Looks like I'll just have to order them at some point and make it happen. Unless somebody knows somebody that carries the 5" post in central Louisiana?

Great job.

Mine was white until I moved it from my white Roo 19 to my whatever-color-the-emerald-package-Mini-Lite-2503S is. That's when the DW said it needed to be painted to match the black along the bottom of the trailer. Really makes it "disappear." See 1st pic below.

Also, I held mine with bungee cords, so I have a small U-bolt in the middle of the end caps. See 2nd pic below. Although you don't need them with your spring setup, you might want to add them, or something like them (even a kitchen cabinet knob) so you can grab and open them easier. I'm guessing it takes both hands with your setup. A knob would make it a one-hander.
