    Did you ever think about a rear porch? This is a great place to use for transporting certain lightweight items, coolers, chairs, and other items. This is on a 2000 Flagstaff 208. IMG_20170710_110402.jpg

    Looks pretty ingenious! Is it welded or bolted? Did you reinforce the bumper at all to do this?

    That is where my gray water tote travels. I have a 25 gal one, too big to fit under the trailer on a custom rack, and I don't use a truck so no pick up bed storage. I bolted a Rubbermaid garage storage wall rack to the bumper, and bought 3 of the large gear hooks. They are just the right size for the tote to sit on, and I run 2 ratchet straps across to secure it. Works great.

    I wel
    I welded small channel to the main frame rails, angle bolted to the outside rails, with welded fishplate, the piece across the back rests on top of the pieces welded to the frame rails. The 5/4 boards lay free with 1/4 inch square stock welded to the outside angle. Will send more pics after the storm!

    Notice the 1/4 bar stock welded to keep the 5 1/4 boards in place. Small channel is welded to the frame rails that the bumper is connected to. These pieces run all the way back to the rear piece. Outside angle is bolted. IMG_20170712_201152.jpg IMG_20170712_201152.jpg
