No need for "exotic hinges and locks" just a couple of nails or a piece of bent wire through a drilled hole on each side will lock the cap in place.



As for the coroplast "cabinet" think along the lines or origami. Bend, cut, trim until you have the shape you want and size you need, then use a couple of self tapping screws to secure it to the outriggers. I used heavy brown wrapping paper to make a pattern, then traced that onto the coroplast, used a razor knife to cut it to shape and a steel yardstick to hold along the creases so they stayed even and flat when I bent the angles.
I love these. It's brilliant. Simple, cheap, easy, effective. My trailer will definitely have one before next spring. I am considering building two, and using one for sewer hose and one to store a few other things. Small odds and ends that I don't want getting lost in my other compartments, with a nice drawer that slides out for easy access.

Dido on the tote with a cover . I store it in the truck bed behind the hitch. That keeps it away from everything elese.

Sterilite, 40 Gal./151 L Wheeled Industrial Tote, Black, Case of 2

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Sterilite-...-of-2/44785752

I have been using these totes for various different purposes for a few years now. We started using them when we began tent camping, and since I discovered them use them for all sorts of things. They are very sturdy, and the wheels/handle is a great feature. When we were tent camping that made them perfect, because that meant my wife could wheel them around also, instead of only me being able to man handle them. When we sold our house I packed a lot of things up in them, made it super easy to wheel my heavier tools and whatnot from my shop onto my tilting trailer and into the storage building. I've used them to bring tools to a job site and rest materials and whatnot on top of them as a sort of makeshift table.

I'm not using any right now for camper things, but our trailer has a ton of storage built in.

This is what I use. Actually I have 2 of them installed. One lengthwise on the frame and the other crosswise under the frame. There's holes in the caps for airflow and the elbow fits. https://www.rvupgradestore.com/Valte...-p/11-0392.htm You can get them other places too.

I recently added a similar set up only mine is telescoping so it goes the full width of the trailer. I mounted it right near the sewer connection so I'm not dragging hose all over the place when I hook up. I needed to do something because the bumper got dented right in the middle and the hose elbow could not get past the dent any more.

Some of the other suggestions are great ideas also. Love the square post with the gutter tray.

My dealer didn't recommend putting the hose in the bumper because of rust.

I've used those in the barn and I like them... but my needs in the RV tend to be smaller boxes and more of them. I have a lot of categories I need to keep separate from one another -- black water items, fresh water items, grease gun, tools, toys -- but not a great quantity of any single category. I've been using used pool chemical buckets with spin lids, which I have a lot of. They fill the bill, except they waste a lot of space because they are round. Would like to use the rectangular chlorine buckets, but the lids crack quickly. If I could find something about a third of the size of these Walmart boxes, I'd be all over them.

Since LHaven is talking about chlorine, every so often I will take the tub with hoses and fittings, fill with water, a squirt of dawn and some pool chlorine, mix well and let soak an hour or two. Rinse well, dry in the sun, all is good, ready to go.
