I don't like the idea of taking away clearance back there. I had one scenario where backing my camper into the spot sent me backing up a hill. I ended up bottoming out on my rear stabilizers. I made a pair of these storage tubes- I'm think going to mount them immediately behind the front landing gear or a bit in front of the tires/near my valve pull handles

To the other person- these are generally for storing sewer hoses.

I'm going to also make a set for my storage compartment for my long handle grilling tools. They are to NEVER get confused of what goes where!!!

Thanks - having our FW has allowed us to put our sewer hose into a plastic tub and store it in our pass thru compartment. As such I never had to figure out another place to store it.

Same here, but since I have 2 sewer outlets, I carry about 50' of sewer hose and connections. Moving that out of there opened up a ton of space!

Here's a problem with a storage tube built in the side of a 5th wheel.

The tube is 4" dia. and a Rhino Flex is hose 4 1/4" dia.




Picked up a new door assembly from local RV dealer and modified it to attach to a PVC post cover.




5th wheel is currently in a storage building without enough room along side to install new tube. Will finish installing in the Spring.

Ragin Cagun. I did a similar mod but have had a hard time with end caps. Looks like you used a threaded bolt through side to side?
