Made it from 1/2 inch electrical piping. Took a while to cut it all out but put it together and then rubber coated it. I place the dump station on it and strap it down with bungee chords.

Here's what I made for my Blue Tote. I welded an 1-1/4" receiver vertically to the bumper and made a tote holder that sets in the receiver. It's pinned and has a bolt that firms it up so it won't wiggle. I can haul it empty or full.


This is on our previous TT. I reinstalled the same bracket setup for our current 5th wheel.

How in the world would you lift it up there full? Water weighs 8.3 pounds per gallon, tote is, say, 25 gallons, that's over 200 lbs....and is the bumper up to it?

It's an 18 gal so only 149lbs. Wife and I can easily lift it up there. Current trailer is a Northwood with in house built frame. Bumper is rock solid.
I would never attempt to haul it full with any Lippert built framed trailer. I weld all the time and did as part of my job. I know what good welds look like and how things are supposed to be welded together. Northwood frames are some of the best in the industry. I also have a bike rack I made that's been on the rear of the 5er for over 10,000 miles and is rock solid. Just gotta know what you're doing.
