There are several discussions concerning the making of a "catch jar".....
which we did and it works well.
For the "lenghtening fix" to work the "slobber/breather" tube extension tip must exit just below the exhaust pipe. The positive pressure created by the exhaust pushes the vented oil mist/moisture to the ground. If this is not done the "vortex", as you have mentioned, distributes the breather discharge on the rear of the bus and TOAD.
The other remedy you have mentioned is usually a plastic peanut butter jar and lid. A whole, which matches the OD size of the slobber tube, is drilled in the cap center along with four 1/2" holes surrounding the middle hole. The cap is slipped onto the slobber tube and a hose clamp is applied to the tube which keeps the lid in place. The plastic jar can be filled with steel wool or several 'beer coasters" which capture all of the oil residue.
Had I known of the "catch jar" I would taken that route. It would have been a breeze to make and install.
I'll get to test out my present ST extension with a 1100 mile trip to Fl.
If it works it stays! If not I go the route of the peanut butter jar
Here's some pics of my current ST extension.
