Ingenious Storage solutions

I thought it would be neat to have a thread for unconventional concepts that people use to get their stuff from one spot to another (besides in the truck, or storage compartments that come as standard equipment on the airstream)

An example would be a PVC tube mounted under the bumper that holds the sewer slinky. Simple, but I can't tell you how many cuss-words I've let fly trying to shove this nasty snake into it's compartment. Like wrestling an anaconda. The PVC tube makes things so civilized.

Share some of your ideas!

I don't have anything that doesn't fit in a storage compartment or in the truck. Sure would like to see what others are bringing along.

I can't send pictures right now, because I'm away from home but I made two storage tubes out of 5" PVC fence posts and mounted them forward of the tanks on our 25' Safari. I used plain pyramid caps and mounted the ones on road side with hinges and latches and the ones on curbside with screws. The trailer originally had two of the round tubes but they were too short and not big enough diameter for the new sewer hoses I bought. Of the two tubes, the aft one holds the sewer hose and extension and the forward one hold three flagpoles.
