Waste Pipe Move

Has anyone modified the blackwater/waste discharge pipe so that instead of dumping straight down about 12-inches from the side edge of the Caravel?
I'd like to put an elbow (?) on mine and run a pipe out to the side of the trailer. Suggestions anyone?

We redid our 31 Sovereign to dump out the side. Makes life easier and we were redoing all the plumbing anyway.... It's in our thread : Little Girl.

There isn't much room for an elbow on the back there. It can hang down enough that you have to be careful not to tear the pipe off if it hangs down. There is also the problem that the bottom of the frame member is about even with the outlet for the waste valve. Measure about 3 1/2 inches down from the bottom of the frame and that's where your waste pipe will be if you run it to the side.
