the superclip idea looks good, i'll see what the space and rods dictate.

I use a travell tube to protect my fishing rods. It'll carry 4-5, which I keep in the back of the tow. An old, soft camera bag with it's dividers, keeps the reels protected.

We keep ours in the closet, in the rod tubes, or else in the back of the truck. Keep the reels, waders, etc. in a bag in the back of the truck also.

First thing I thought of was when someone mentioned attaching something to the bumper was getting rear-ended. It may never happend, but then again . . .

It's not a 13', but the only good spot I found for mine was in the bathroom. I know mine would get ripped off if they were in the doorway.

Mine go in rod cases which are stowed securely.

John,

Did you mention the length of your fishing poles?

We have two 4' plastic fence posts on the back of our Scamp that we use for 4' pole storage. Another practical solution is a PVC pipe strapped to the bottom under the rear floor. In our case we have two plastic boxes on slides attached under the dinette area. You could do that with a PVC pipe of a diameter that meets your needs. pivoting it on one end and clamping it up at the other end.

Since you are concerned about theft, this solution is invisible to the world unless you get down on the ground. The sides of the trailer hand down below the floor. If you wanted you could even use a lock to hold the non pivoting end.

We have 5 under the Scamp boxes and no one has ever bothered them, actually we have never had any incident in 14 years. I think there are pictures under Modifications/Preparing a 1991 Scamp showing our under trailer storage..

While invisible to the world the access is easy.

I was in Bass Pro last month and looked at the fishing rods. I could not believe the high prices! It's been decades since I bought a new rod, I know. But still! Some things like TVs, appliances, and clothing have only gone up fairly modest amounts over the last few decades (I recall paying $12-$14 for dress pants in the mid '70s, and I can still find them for $20-$25 at some stores today, for example). But fishing rods seem to have skyrocketed! I would never pay $50 for a rod, much less $80 or $100 or more.

I paid $600 for the blanks to build the rod myself. Add to that the cork for the handle, the guides, the reel seat ( and then the reel itself, and fly-line ).
I'm not shoving that into a PVC tube.

There are a lot of options for what goes into the tube or even what makes up the body of the storage element. The tube does offer sealing ability. Our boxes, though continually exposed to weather are always dry.

All I offered is a relatively secure location and typically unused space. No shoving required, just offering a potential solution for small trailer storage that can be customized to meet your needs.

I'm thinking the TV for the same reason it is a good place to keep rain gear and warm outer wear. It is always where you are when you need it. No need to remember what to pull out of the trailer and put in the TV on your way someplace.

And if you are lucky enough to be camping in walking distance of good fishing then your TV is probably there anyway.

My dad closed the trunk lid on my first fishing rod.
Never forget.

Honda,

As always, I am glad for your generosity and spirit of sharing here. You have opened my mind to new ideas. I'm a newb, and will be for some time I expect.

I like your under trailer Storage idea for fishing poles, looked under there today and I can't understand with my pea brain how one would anchor a PVC tube to the cross member or longitudinal frame?

I also didn't get what you meant by pivoting side. If you don't want to explain to me, I understand.

My help is gone now so I'm going to have to do work by myself. And I want to try.
