    I see alot of pup owners putting pvc storage tubes on their frames.

    Besides fishing poles, what do people store in these things? I'm curious.

    I keep my bunk support poles in mine. The canvas is attached to the ends of the bunks, so there isn’t a handy place to keep them otherwise.

    Rugs, sewer hose, whatever you like.

    As mentioned you can store lots of items in the tubes.. I have also seen a few mods with multiple tubes mounted to store WDH bars, pie irons, marshmallow forks, other cooking utensils the possibilities are almost limitless..

    My wife wants one to have a place to store the "welcome carpet" that she wants to get to put out in front of the steps to our trailer and to be the same size as the awning. We don't want a dirty carpet inside the trailer, so rolling it up and sticking it inside a pipe sounds like a good option.

    Our "rv mat" is too big to go into a (sanely sized) tube. I think most people put the bunk supports in them, but we just put ours in the "hallway" next to the folded galley... that space isn't suitable for storing much anyway, and they don't take up much space so we do still throw a few bag chairs on top.

    "Real" RV's often store the sewer hose there, but that's typically not an issue for pups.

    They're not storage tubes. They're potato canons. Don't piss off the folks in the site next to you.

    I stored 1lb propane bottles in a tube, I think I fit 8 in there.

    I may mount it on my current pup for either a rug or my fire pit tools and lantern poles/hooks.

    I've seen people store their patio rugs in there. It keeps the inside of the PUP clean as you are not tracking in dirt, mud, rocks, grass, and what ever else falls into the rug.
