Store bought or home made bracket?

I am working on installing the 5" vinyl fence post sewer hose storage mod. I saw a picture of a great bracket for mounting the post to the frame but unfortunately the picture was just in Google images so no idea where it came from. I thought I'd ask if anyone on the FR forums has ever seen one like it that you could buy. It may be that the person that posted the picture fabricated the bracket themselves. Here's a picture of the bracket - maybe somebody can point me to where I can find a set.

A length of 1" x 3/16" flat bar steel, a 5/16" hole on each end and 2 lengths of 5/16" ready rod with a couple nuts and washers, some spray paint and an hour of your time.

I thought I had a picture...
I took some stainless 1/4” treaded rod(cheap) and 3/8” od nylon tube(real cheap) and slide the tube over TR. bent to match od of post and drilled through rail(some say don’t) and spaced with a short piece of treated lumber.

I am pretty sure that is a fabricated bracket by the owner. I have installed a couple 1/8" by 1-1/2" flat steel from Lowes with 1/4" all thread. Drill the frame or use a beam clamp. Both have worked for me. When usinb the beam clamp I used doubled nuts against the beam clamp and used loctite.

The first set of brackets from flat steel. The second set I just used L brackets from Lowes.

Looking at the 5" corner braces at HomeDepot - maybe that is the easiest way. And if I don't like it, I can have a redo.

Thanks all!

I just used some stainless steel bolts, 2" fender washers and ny-lock nuts and "captured" the flange of the I-beam using them; 2 sets of bolts/washers/nuts on each side of the flange. In the pic you can see 2 sets of bolts/nuts/washers the captures one side of the flange. There are 2 more just like them on the back side of the flange that you can't see. There is one full fender washer on top and 1 washer cut in half (2 halves) below it that approximate the thickness of the flange. Doesn't require drilling any holes in the frame. The diagram should explain it.

I had it on my Roo 19 for 3 years, then moved to my Mini Lite 2503S which will be going on it's 4th season this summer.

Thanks all, I really appreciate the suggestions. I think I'm going to try the corner braces first because I want to mount the fence post aft of the rear spring mount and in front of the step hardware. Also, it needs to be about 1/2" below the frame to clear the propane line on one side and the grey tank drain line on the other. I'd go under the bumper but my driveway is an issue and it might be pretty close to a drag problem. Top of the bumper is a no go because of the ladder. If it gets too beat up from things flying off the tires I'll have to give the under bumper mount a try.

You might consider using U-bolts and a cross piece to fasten it to the underside of the bumper. You can get all different sizes at places like Tractor Supply and Home Depot. I tried something different with mine using eye bolts and cross pieces. Worked great, but, I was using the Valterra hose compartment I bought from RV dealer. Also, if mounting on top, you may not have to go all the way across the bumper, just up to the ladder. If your hose is too long, it may not work, but, I usually get at least two hoses in the bumper space. I would make it - it's more fun and creative that way.
