Storing hoses cords and stinky BBQs on a Sprinter B

Just wondering where you would store electrical cords, water hoses and stinky BBQ's on a Sprinter based B class. They have not got outside storage for items like these and they are dirty and the BBQ would smell if stored inside, say under the bed. How do you folks that own these models get around that issue?

If you're not towing anything you could use a rear carrier with a storage box.

for the slinky and a water hose,
a couple of these right behind the rear tires (not under the rear bumper where it could drag)

a travel bag on top for other things ?

You might look into a "Son of Hibachi " it's small and perfect for 2 people. It comes with a nice fire insulated case that allows you to put it away after 10 minutes. I don't trust that feature of it but the case is lined inside with fireproof material. Just never in that big of a hurry and extinguish the coals before storing.

On our 2010 Sprinter 3500 conversion, I designed a tray that hangs off the spare tire carrier. There are pictures in our build thread on the Sprinter-Source:

Hello,
We just bought a 2014 Prism 24G and are having trouble deciding where in the heck we can store the sewer hose. Have you any suggestions?
Thanks

How short is your hose when 'scrunched' up as short as it goes? Measure that length and add a few inches. Check underneath for a place to hang that length of 5-6" section of drain pipe. Here's 6" pipe, but you might get away with 4-5" pipe if you find it.

Advanced Drainage Systems 6 in. Solid Smoothwall Pipe-06560010 at The Home Depot

Find appropriate end pieces with screw thread caps, assemble and hang by metal straps.

I have a 2014 Sprinter with a spare tire carrier. If you take the cover off the spare, there is some room in there. Power cord extension, spare water hose and who knows what else will go in there for me. I will put little used stuff mostly since taking the cover off is somewhat of a chore.

A cheap simple option is use a suitably sized plastic storage bin with a tight fitting cover. If you have a storage space that the bin fits in, fine. Or you could just carry it inside out of the way (if there is such a place in a class B) while traveling and then set it outside under the coach or a picnic table. It would be weatherproof.
