I made hooks to store my steps, they rest on the bumper and don't have much wiggle room. Been great thus far, but does partially block the tail light.

Split shaft collars work well. I'm going to make another small rack for the roof to store a 5gal portable waste tank.

I have a ladder rack hangar for chairs etc,infact I have two..Found one in a dumpster outside an RV park..I also have a hitch carrier,one of the full size 500# capacity ones but I don't like it in the rear with the TC on...I have thought about getting one of the smaller ATV hitch hauls with the angle up and a 250# capacity,easier to deal with...

Unless I find a ladder rack attachment I will probably just go with a light weight ATV hitch haul with the angle up design...

I might get a Swagman or Camco ladder rack for a bicycle. I have a front receiver on my truck but not too keen on putting my bicycles up there to catch bugs and road debris. I wonder how much stress is transferred to the ladder.

Take a look at the Sherptek Dragon Bak. It should handle whatever your ladder can accommodate safely.

That is a great idea for your waste tank. I think you need a small tank do you can reference VINGLI Portable Tote Tank. This product is only 9.3 pounds represents another design quality that’ll vastly help in the transportation process: a waste tank this light is a rarity within this marketplace.
