Hose rack? Why?
Just get a homer bucket and do this 😝👍

Advantage is you always seem to need a camp bucket, and our 50Amp fits in perfectly - you 30Amp folks might be able to get 2 in there!

I carry 100' of hose in 4 x 25' sections. They're bulky and a pain.

I want to replace them with those flat water hoses that roll up:
RV/Marine Hose - 50' - American Specialty F5012WR - Hoses, Reels & Fittings - Camping World

The factory said on the tour that if you take spare off and mount your bikes or the same weight they will not deny a claim. They would turn there heads. Thats a quote from the head rep. of the Rockwood/Flagstaff Manager. I asked the question. If something did break he said they wouldn't know if you reinstalled the tire rack when you brought it in, or left the bike on. But said it would be better off if you were bringing it in. "Happy Biking"...

2 plastic oil changing pans from Northern Tool pop riveted together and the the bottom cut out of one with a pc of plastic chrome door edging around the opening edge. Worked great for the 4 yrs we had it and it went with the camper along with the 2 roll out drawers.

It's just 1/2 of a garage and my side is a dirty, cluttered mess. TOWTA's side is clean and has her covered junker in it.

Here are the pictures of the finished loaded shelf ready to travel.
1) Shelf in placed locked in
2) pulled out
3) rollers past slide fully out being stopped by a restrainer wire attached in rear.
4)Pin location to hold in place during travel.
The shelf is pretty heavy so thats why the handles are needed. only problem with 8289WS is storage not being enough.
