Understood. Mine is wide open so it wasn't a problem. I'd like to make one more for other stuff like the carpet and awning pull.

I've thought about building another one and if I can roll the awning mat up small enough to fit in the 5x5 fence post it would make a great place to store it.

Finished my install (finally) this morning. All went well, and it seems very secure. Will post photos in an album soon.

I used 5" round perforated sewer pipe and made 2 storage tubes with screw in caps.

This is a pic of the tubing I used to do mine. I also put two 6" round pipes under it to hold my awning poles, fishing rods and such.

Looks so much easier than bending steel plate to exactly the right shape. Wish I'd thought of that
Oh well, done now and seems very secure

I had a 6" PVC pipe under the last RV for the sewer hose storage, but I like the fence post better.

I did mine on the Lexington like Golfmedik, very easy and work great, however what I did different was to have the screws too long extending down. I like the way he did his, great job.

The perforated pipe is a good idea.
