Best thing to do is probably bend some 1" wide Al or steel flat stock. Or if room allows mount the post sleeve on top of the bumper.

I mounted mine a little more stout, but only because I also Store a 7' GPL folding step ladder in a post sleeve under the tt. Pics in my mods link.

Good luck!!!

We got a plastic tub with a lid and bolted to the rear bumper, all the black tank stuff is in there.

We have a heavy duty truck spring shop local here. They will bend square leaf spring bolts any diameter and size you want. You could try that route.

Just use the metal strapping found in the plumbing/HVAC section of Lowes and a couple of SS bolts. Works fine for me, and you can cut it to length with cross cutters. Heck I've got about 20' left after doing mine, so even if it rusts eventually (galvanized) I can replace it several times.

I bought a slider super tube from here:

Sanitubes / Sewer Hose Carriers / NEW!! SUPER-SLIDER Adjustable SUPER-TUBE - DW Inc.

I mounted it on top of my bumper because I extended it beyond the recommended length.

Secondary or extra length - Built in storage in rig
Primary - Collapsed (Rhino) and in the bed of my truck. A good airing out after rinsing certainly won't hurt it.
