Hinged Bumper Cap. https://www.raysrvaccessories.com/shop

Ray has worked in construction most of his life. We decided in 2017 to move to Florida, and after not being able to rent due to income requirements, we became RV’ers. After our house in SC didn’t sell, we returned to SC and fitting that 20 foot of hose into the bumper created an issue.

We had the plastic end caps and Ray had placed wire through them to keep them in place. When the 20 foot of hose was placed in the bumper, the caps had to be screwed into place to stay. This worked until the first camping trip. The screws weren’t working. We threw around ideas about how to get the end caps to work. Then one morning it hit. Ray came up with a hinged design that didn’t require removal every time it was opened. He set to work in the garage and came up with the prototype. Each set is hand crafted and inspected to his standards.

We have owned our RV since August 2018. We love the RV life and look for every chance we can to stay in it. Including camping in our back yard if necessary.
