Well, depending on what gets put in them, I'm sure can change the color.

If you have a big dog, rodent proof dog food container.

If you have a really really big dog, a dog food bowl.

Power cord holder

Stinky slinky holder, lid seals all the nasty stuff in.

Might want to stop at 100

I can tell you from sad experience, you don't want to use a bucket for a step ladder without a piece of wood over the top. When plastic gets old, it gets brittle. Here in the NM sun, it gets old quickly. When your foot goes through the bottom of the bucket, it breaks into several triangular peices that are forced down as your foot goes through. It is kind of like the chinese handcuffs we had as kids, except much more painful. The only way out is to cut the bucket.

Power tongue jack cover for TT. A smaller bucket will do, but 5 gal would certainly work.
Also a flower pot.

To revisit this thread...

If you need a good $2 bucket (that holds 5 gallons, food grade) then head to Firehouse Subs. If there is a franchise in your area they sell their 5 gallon Official Pickle Buckets for $2 each. The money they raise goes to injured fire fighters, purchase of equipment like Jaws of Life, that sort of thing.

And they are bright red! With lids.

Radio,
Now that we are thinking of winterizing our TTs here is an other use for a 5gal bucket I learned growing up on the farm...which works for rodent control. Put 3" of antifreeze in the bottom of the 5 gal bucket. Add a smear of PB inside the bucket 2" down from the top. Place the bucket under your TT and add a stick from the ground to the rim and you'll be amazed how many of the little buggers you'll keep from getting into your TT.
Just a thought.
How are you doing on your count?

Happy Trails

Spent the weekend at Prophetstown State Park in IN. Could have used a 5 gal bucket for all the candy my girls got trick or treating in the campground Saturday.
