Stored pipe of draining 3" under the caravan?

I have Bigfoot 17 1986, I cannot store the pipe of draining of 3 inches with fittings, in the rear bumper, It sticks in this one.

I believe that the last owner had problems with his storing of pipe of 3", I removed 3 sections of pipes stayed in this bumper.

Behind wheels the plumbing uses all the space.
I look to fix it under the trailer, just in front of the wheels of this one, with an easy access of the side connection.

Is my solution good?

Have a good day,

I routinely have used 4" plastic drain pipe, attached under the RV, and fitted with standard end caps, for hose storage, worked fine for me.

I've seen plastic, or probably it's PVC, 4" square fence posts used for hose storage

Yup, Like mine.... I actually ended up putting it under the trailer towards the rear without any grounding/clearance issues.

Finally I have installed the pipe in front of the wheels, I have no place in the back of the trailer.

I had a remaining part in composite.
I cut two pieces in this one to fix the pipe under the trailer.

As it is installed in front of the axle, I think of installing a kind of guard mud for the width of the caravan to protect better the pipe, against the objects which could pass under the caravan, as rocks, racoon, and more....
