Outdoor Plastic Storage

Hey Guys - I am looking to find a long, skinny outdoor plastic storage box to store our hot dog forks, Pudgy Irons, and Drink stakes in. Unfortunately, these don't work very well in our storage compartments and I'm looking to find a new home for them.

The hope is that I can find a weatherproof box that is 8" wide, 3-4' long, and 12-24" tall that I can bolt to my rear bumper. I've seen the PVC idea, but I would need a 6" pipe, and that is too big in my opinion. Any help would be appreciated if you have run into this before, and what solution you have come up with!

Thanks!!

How about a small top rail pick up truck side box? The kind with the lid instead of doors.

Outdoor Plastic Storage

FamCamper..... For long skinny things I mounted these below the chassis frame.

These are 5x5 vinyl fence post covers, available at home centers and other building supplies. End caps also available. I painted mine black. Cost with two end caps about $30 per. They come either 8 or 10 ft, can't recall. Mine run full width, but of course you can easily cut it to any length, or mount them vertically. I have placed a length of preformed vinyl rain gutter inside each to act as a sliding tray.

How did you mount them? Did you drill into the frame for bolts?
