Attaching PVC underbelly

Someone on here has to have a secure way of attaching PVC pipe to the underbelly for storage. I'd appreciate any suggestions especially with pictures. Thanks

I just used what I call plumbers tape which is just strapping with a hole every inch. I drilled a hole into frame where I wanted to attach it and used some good self tapping screws. I did this on every rig and store my 30' drain hose. Works good.

I drilled two holes opposite each other on each end of the pvc where the holes line up with the chassis I-beam. The bottom hole needs to be larger than the top hole. Then you can mark where the holes are to be drilled in the I-beam and drill pilot holes. Then, using 1/4 X 1 1/8 self-tapping bolt with fender washer, screw the pvc to the I-beam. That's what I did with two pvc pipes. I know there are easier ways but I wanted it so the mounting would not show.

Thanks for bringing up this topic. I have some 6" pvc and was looking at ways to attach it.

I like Orv's method. That's not how I mounted mine - but that's because I didn't think of it!! Time to get the dril back out!

I welded 2 L brackets to the frame. In the brackets I had two holes the width of the pvc pipe. Then I got 3/16" threaded stock (Lowes -Home Depot) and bent them around the pvc pipe. Bolted the pipe to the welded L brackets and it took 10 minutes.
On both ends of the pvc pipe I installed clean out plugs. Now I have 10 ft. of sewer hose on the street side and 20 ft of sewer hose on the curb side.
The only item that won't fit inside of the pvc pipe is the 90 degree elbow.

Having access to aluminum at a local yard store, I fabbed this bracket. Rolled an 2 " aluminum strip for the hangar and radiused a piece of aluminum for the mount. Looks good, lasts a long time, 2 bolts per side for easy installation.
