Since day 1,I have carried my shovel outside.

I just drilled a hole in the handle and place it over the door "stop/holder".

Than use a short "bungie"to keep in from moving around.

Oh,and attached small pieces of "mole skin" to the camper area where the shovel can rub.

I wasn't quite ready to start drilling holes in my new Hawk yet, so I fashioned a mount out of plywood and pvc pipe that bolts to the jack mounts when I'm on the road.  Works well!

I agree with the other comments about this.  Well done.  I also think I am going to come up with a semi-permanent option before I go drilling permanent holes!  Now, if only the camper would arrive early...

No, sadly, not skilled enough with metalwork.  I had a local welder fabricate it for me.

Old thread I know, but I was curious if anybody knew the brand of this shovel holder that FWC has installed on one of their showroom campers? If not, I suppose a quick call to the factory is in order. It looks like it's mounted to the jack bracket and even locks the shovel & axe. ThxScreenshot_20181113-203418_Chrome.jpeg
