Dump hose storage

Thanks to this site I read about a great way to store the Rino hose and adapters. Almost made it to short, but it works. I used the 5x5 vinyl fence post, and a section of 4" vinyl gutter as read about here.

I glued thin pieces of hard wood plywood where I would be drilling some holes and used 1/4 x 1 1/4 inch washers to spread out the load where I attached to the frame. Drilled some holes in the bottom in those locations to get access to the bolt heads. Also had to put a piece of treated 3/4" plywood between the frame and the vinyl post to space it down a little. Plus a little black paint.

I used a piece of treated wood to create the removable end cap. Installed some brass inserts and put a washer and lock washer on the knobs.
Here's some pics.
Again, thanks all.

A very clean looking setup. pun Is that a 90* clear elbow attached to your hose? If so, that is the size setup I need, large enough to store all the fittings. What length did you build yours and will it store 20' of hose? Is yours located behind the rear axle?
Thanks

Looks more like a 45 than a 90* to me.

The vinyl fence post was 7' long and I cut it down to 6'. The 15 foot hose just fits as you can see. Wish I had left it at 7', or if I could have found an 8' it would have given more room for a longer hose. It's mounted behind the rear axle and behind the gray water tank.
