I used two SS nuts/bolts/fender washers on either side of the frame's I-beam flange. I cut two washers in half to make up for the thickness of the flange. So a total of 2 sets of 2 on each side of the TT. See attached drwg of the bolts on one I-beam. I did NOT want to drill ANY holes in the frame.

Note that I have a slight error in the side view on the right side. The top washer/nut should be just above the two cut-in-half washers, similar to what's shown on the view at the bottom of the picture.

I can see how that works. Good Ingenuity! I just drilled the holes
.....Are you drilling through the 5" post? Looks like that's what you're doing in your drawing in the side view. Guess that's one way of doing it.

Yes. Insert the SS bolt and fender washer from inside the post, add the two half washers, then put the top fender washer on top of the I-beam flange, then the nut. Used nylon lock SS nuts. Total of 8 sets, 4 on each side of trailer, two on each side of each I-beam.

I agree. These posts are hard to find in late summer. Hardware buyers must think Canadians only build snow fences after August 1. After numerous phone calls I found an observant employee who knew about a pallet of 5X5 vinyl posts at a local HD this weekend (mid September). They'd been sitting there for weeks. It took them almost an hour to discover they had no information on cost or anything in their system. The posts had been discontinued. Got a deal. $20 for one post.

hi all, just wanted to offer another solution if you can't find post guards. (I couldn't in Calgary). Since we are in irrigation country, I picked up a piece of 5" aluminum irrigation pipe. Light and strong. Will be mounting it above the back bumper.

Forgot to post and to say thank you for all recommendations. Last week I completed my installation of sewer hose storage, plus I added another to hold fishing rods.
They look great and work awesome.

I want to do this mod on my new Sabre but have reservations about drilling holes in the frame of the trailer.

Has anyone had any issues drilling the frame?

What about FR or Lippert if you have frame issues later on down the road? They may blame your mod as the cause???

Just wondering guys.. I luv the mod!
