Travato Sewer Hose Carrier?

Hi all. Our 2015 1st gen Travato is our 1st RV. We see almost no Class B's have a factory solution for storing the 15' RhinoFlex hose with accessories attached. Has anyone put a purchased or fabricated carrier underneath their Travato? If so, where did you put it? Without this it's looking like the hose goes inside the cabin in an "airtight" container or in a Stowaway2 MAX on the hitch. Suggestions appreciated, please.

Welcome. You should use the search function at the top of this page and look for "sewer hose storage". Several people have made one out of PVC pipe attached to the backside of the bumper.

Hi there, we have the 2014 Travato. Congratulations on your new Travato. Yes the tube is kind of short I agree. You may want to check out under the lounge seat. There are some electronics and pipes in there. I made a shelf with a couple of legs to fit in there and I use it for a fan and a batterypack and the big manual pack they gave us. I know its inside but you got to do what you got to do in this unit. I think if you get a nice thick bag it may work for you. Just a suggestion, good luck! Now that I'm thinking about it I may take a second look in there myself to see if I could do it..I'dlike a little longer tube myself..

I use a spare tire carrier and nestle a rhino hose in the spare tire. Hope the pictures show, this websites mechanics are not very dependable.

I do not seem to be able to include my pics, you can email me and I will send them. Braidedcreek@gmail.com

The Travato doesn't have a spare tire. Did you add one? If so, did you put it on the back door or underneath?

Spare Tire

I added a rear cargo carrier I constructed because the market available models are too wobbly for me. But you can get a simple tire carrier also shown that will hold a spare that you will also have to buy. It was around $500 for the spare and another $100 for the carrier. Both doors open as I have it configured. I attached some pics, maybe that will work.

Ahhh, you got the pics to work. Now I see. Well, if I'm going to add another 2 feet to the length anyway for "only" another few hundred $ over what you have invested I'll get the Stowaway2 Max swingaway and put the slinky in a $10 "airtight" container (from Menards and/or others) inside of that along with the rest of the outside stuff. Thanks for sharing your solution.

Extra sewer hose in one tube, coil type water hose in the other.

I ended up going with Presto-fit brand of sewer hoses because they don't have the bulky end connectors. I can fit a 5' hose in the on-board tube in the side of the van. That is good for 95% of my usage

Looks good. My Stowaway should arrive on Thursday. To start will I'm planning on just going with the "airtight" container I noted above. Since I already purchased 15' of Rhinoflex with fittings I asked Winnie for the specs on the 10' blue hose they had provided to put in the on board cylinder. It's Valterra so I bought a coupler for the open end compatible with Rhino so I can use the extra footage if I ever need it.

Now I'm making myself crazy trying to find solid places in the walls to attach things like the Telegant 70 drying rack on the wall across from the bed and a paper towel rack above or next to the sink. All of the logical places are just 1/8" panels without support anywhere except on the edges. Still formulating.

Just forget about using screws to hang things in your van. Just get some 3M red double side tape at Lowes. It's made for sticking on mailbox letters and such things on outside surfaces. I used it to hang a variety of things, along with some heavy grade velcro and some Command hooks.
