Blue Boy Holder?

Has anyone come across a good bracket that will mount on the rear 4 inch square bumper of my Jay Feather to store our Blue boy honey wagon while travelling? No ladder to tie it to and sick of hauling it around in the PU.

Be careful, some of those bumpers aren't strong enough to hold the paint that's on them.

Hi Ford and you are right. I want an upright post like the spare tire basket so I can strap the blue boy to it in an upright manner and leave it there even when the TT is in winter storage.

Why wouldn’t a ratchet strap work? If you tighten it down then it wont rotate around the corner of the bumper as it’s square.

Set it on top and ratchet it down.

I saw where someone welded an appliance style dolly to the bumper then strapped the blue boy to it.

Now that is a good idea, you could even drill and bolt it if you didn’t want to weld it. Take the wheels off and bolt the flat base to the top of the bumper. I had planned to fabricate something but this would save a lot of time. I might just do that one, thanks!

I mounted a bal hide a spare under the trailer to use for the waste tote. It works great.
