As well as we did on our Escape in rear ,besides their holder added a black ABS pipe strapped on bottom framing with plumbers tape to frame , to carry extra drain hose which sometimes you need . The drain hose original with trailer was very thin and as soon as got home trashed it . Purchased new Presto Fit hose. Pat

I bought a 2 section Camco kit with elbow at Walmart for around 28-29 dollars. The first time i used it the hose came apart from the connectors. I had to buy large hose clamps at the hardware store to keep it together. I was disappointed since this was a brand new hose. Lucky for me it was gray water coming out when it came apart. It's a dirty job, but someone has to do it.

When you use Presto fit hoses give them a twist after you push them together . Pat

I removed the front holder as not only did it look strange sitting on the front of the trailer but it did not do the job well - did not hold the hose and the fittings.

Used a 4x4 fence post under the trailer - holds the hose and all the fittings. One of the top mods I have done to the trailer.

I have used various hose brands over the years and so far the RhinoFlex is my favourite due to how it is so easy to compact down in length. I have also learned over the years that dragging a hose on any surface is not a good thing as it will result in leaks. I pick it up when ever it needs moving no matter how short a distance or the surface it is on.

I'm doing that and I don't even have toilet or holding tank. For awning poles. I figure people will think I have a deluxe model with a bathroom when they see the holder on the back bumper.

Oh and hi Donna.

I have a steel square tube rear bumper in which I carry a length of sewer hose.
I kept the front holder in which I carry a short maybe 6ft (custom cut to length) hose with an elbow on one end. I use the short hose alone with my blueboy and also when I can get close enough to the dump station inlet. When needed, the additional hose (15ft I think) from the bumper can be used alone or coupled to the short hose.

Where is Scamp putting the tube holder now that it is no longer mounted in front? Are they mounting it elsewhere or did they eliminate it?

Ken, I'm sure they didn't eliminate it, but we'd need to get the information where the tube has been relocated from a recent new trailer buyer. I looked at the pictures on the Scamp website. Only a couple of pictures show the tube is no longer mounted on the front.

To follow Donna's lead, many people have mounted better, longer slinky holders; under the chassis, on the rear bumper, maybe most commonly on the tongue, in front of or behind the LP tanks. The most commonly used holders are 5" fence post covers.
I've never had a Scamp but I've done that on both of my Casitas and on my Bigfoot.
I can't recall on the Parkliner, but I didn't keep it for long.

Yeah. I looked on their site as well and didn't find any clues. I'm curious about where they've decided to relocate it.

Ken
perhaps you are just seeing Scamps which are not equipped with black or gray tanks and thus have no need for a sewer hose or a container for one?

Batdude, just get a nice long Rhino hose and you're done. I had one, it was great, but it went with the trailer when I sold it.

As long as the bayonet end fits in your slinky holder.
