Fence post sewer pipe storage need help

Ok I read that some others have used a 5" fence post attached to the bumper with square u bolts as a sewer piper holder for the rhino flex pipes. I went and bought everything but the u bolts at Lowes and build the holder. I am having a lot of trouble finding the u bolts in the 5" size. Can anyone who has done this point me in the right direction? As a temporary solution I used 2 ratchet straps to hold it to the bumper, this is functional but definitely does not look finished. Thanks in advance for your help.

I just bought some very large black zip ties and that has worked very well for us for almost 3 years now.

I couldn't find any 5" U-bolts either, so I took a 4" U-bolt and "shaped it to suit". I had to utilize a couple of other fasteners to make it work.

I bolted mine using L brackets used for decking.

I just used screws on mine. U bolts are overkill. I made a cut into a piece of wood and had it slide over the frame rail which also made the area level then screwed down through the inside of the post into the wood block. Solid and nothing showing

McMaster-Carr has U bolts up to 8". A 6" square U bolt runs about $4. They have about anything you could need to attach/fasten anything to anything else. Been using them for years, always prompt service. Same goes for plumbing, electrical, raw materials, etc. A one stop shop.

A hand full of 6in bolts and some flat steel stock and you can make some mounts.

Not to go off topic but my local Home Depot only had 4" fence post. It was tight but my rhino fits. I'm using big zip ties temporarily. If I find 5" post I'm upgrading.

I found the 5" at Lowes. And to be clear the vinyl fence is not in the same section as the vinyl railing so make sure to be clear in what you are asking for. The vinyl railing only comes in 4". It took me some time to figure this out on my shopping trip and of course they are sold in opposite ends of the store.
