Attaching a 4" PVC Sewer Tube to frame Question

What would be a good way to attach a 5' x 4" PVC Tube across the front on top of frame of camper behind propane tanks. Plenty of wiggle room, has anyone done this before.
Thanks

I can't find my post on this modification others have done.
I put mine exactly where you're talking.
On the top side, I drilled 1/2" clearance holes, then I was able to put a screw gun driver through those holes and used self tapping #12 screws to attach into the frame.
I had to use a little plumbers putty to stick the screw heads to the socket until I got some pressure on them.

I attached a square PVC fencepost to the frame by the sewer dump, used self tapping screws directly to the frame. Use it to store a garden hose for the macerator pump and misc ends for the 3" sewer hose. (which is still stored in the bumper)

Thanks dougtoms, I finally got around to attaching that 5' X 4" pvc sewer tube behind propane tanks. I drilled 1/2 holes on top of frame and used #10 self tapping screws with washers.

Good deal Dave.
I found some pics today of my install.
I used a 1/4 push pin on one end to keep the removable cap in place.

Yep Clutch, agree.
Some people have stated good luck with zip ties and ratchet straps too.

Thanks for the add.
