I certainly like the tube for the bars, however I would be concerned about the possibility of theft. Then again, the storage doors and locks on our CC are just going to keep an honest man honest.

crushor,
The tube works well for storage when the TT is at the campground and at home in the driveway. It cost me about $20 bucks to build and weighs about 4 lbs empty.
I can fit the Equalizer bars, L brackets and the lift bar in there. I hated putting the greasy bars in the back of the truck bed.
I built it for convenience but it sure would not stop someone from stealing the bars. I look at it this way, fellow campers at the campground already have their own setup for WD. My bars without the hitch head and brackets would not do them much good. The tube is hard to see and most people don't even notice it.
I have never heard of anyone having the WD system stolen from the trailer?

We just place a zip lock bag over the greasy WD bar heads and put 'em in the under-the-bed-outside access storage bay. Hitch head goes in the bed of the truck.

The link in my sig has pics of what I did on my old Outback. Worked pretty slick and several members on Outbackers duplicated it.

Well this box wont work. I measured and thought the leveling blocks would fit. The exterior dimensions worked but when I opened it and tried to fit thing in, no go.

1/2 inch short. Crap.


No I need another idea. The room between my tank and camper, due to the WD setup is around 12".

I'm open to suggestions.

This may work as it looks to be a full 12 inches inside.

Ugh, so frustrating.

Box was perfect but too wide to open while on the frame.

Back to the drawing board.

Part # 66244. If you order online use coupon code 80230705. This will get you 25% off. I think it ships for like $7 if you dont have a store close by. I have several stores in my area, so I was able to pick mine up.
