Storing the stinky slinky in Axis/Vegas

The geniuses at Thor, for reasons known only to themselves, eliminated the rear bumpers that could store your dump hose. Now we get a bumper that is useless for anything other than being a bumper. No one wants to put their nasty used dump hose in a storage compartment. Other owners have posted various methods for storing the stinky slinkys, so here's mine. I got a 5" square PVC fence post with 2 slip on end caps. Cut it to 5' long, so it could be mounted on top of my useless rear bumper. 5' fits perfectly between the license tag and the rear ladder. I screwed the right side end cap on and attached the left end cap with a couple of zip ties. Will likely replace the zip ties with something better but want to see how this works. It stores both 10' sections of my stinky slinky. I know its vulnerable to possible damage if I back in to something or someone runs in to me but IMO, it would be more vulnerable to damage if it was mounted under my Axis. Here's pic's:
