ETI agreed to give it a try to install it at my risk. I will report later on if it was successful.

We will wait to confirm that the install was successful before buying the ladder to put into it.
Hard to see how it is that risky given they use a hanger strap on the driver's side even with their own hose carrier. The Valterra will just hang out towards the street that much more vs. the OEM.

Risky in the sense that ETI said that in case of any installation difficulties, they will just put the Valterra inside and install their standard sewer hose carrier.

I’ve got 2 fishing poles in mine right now
Safe and secure
Unless someone opens it up and rips me
But my thinking is who wants their hands on the sewer tube

Just to clarify kavm, you are planning on having two on your trailer when all is done, correct?

Yes - we already had ordered a second / extra sewer tube carrier in our build. The Valterra is simply a customer-supplied part for the spare sewer hose carrier. We will get the standard sewer tube carrier to keep the actual sewer tube.

The link I posted is for the double sided version. 6' version would be better but would it fit in the sewer tube holder? We kind of like that idea.
I asked for two extra sewer pipe tubes for our 2019 21C. ETI could only mount one of them, the other is currently in my storage building. I have the FLD600 double-sided ladder. With it I can reach all of the top of the trailer, but it is too wide when folded to fit inside the ETI-provided tube. I added a large fence post from Lowes to the back bumper to store the ladder. The post is mounted with threaded stock above/below the bumper along with PT wooden shims. I DID NOT drill any holes in the bumper.The end caps are secured with 2 SS screws at each end. The post does not extend beyond the sides of the trailer. I still need to paint the wooden shims to match the tube.

Looks very good, IMJ in FLA! In fact, now that I expect the extra (we only asked for one) sewer tube holder to be long enough - we have to worry about whether a 6' ladder will fit in it. Normally, I'd just order one from Amazon - but am less sure now, in case the ladder does not fit...

The internal diameter of Valterra seems to be 4.45" whereas the ladder is 4.5"

The only two I found which might fit Valtera -
https://www.amazon.com/GP-Logistics-.../dp/B002PNMMOC
Dimension - 73 x 3.3 x 3.2 inches.

https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...ided_stik.html

4.2 x 3.5 x 71.3"

The second one looks the best (has a slightly higher weight rating, though we well below that range in weight...
