One of those might be nice on the back bumper. I didn't know they were available on Amazon.

Isn't that type of urinal usually mounted near the tire?

If you want to buy local, you can probably find these at any trailer sales/supply type location that actually works on trailers. But for $25 bucks a pair and no shipping you'll prob come out ahead buying on amazon anyway...

I hadn't seen those except on older buses. This bus only has holes in the bumper for steps.

Most of our straight trucks and trailers that have tailgates have 'em on the sides at rear.
I have 'em stock on my dog nose so you can scrape the snow off the windshield or clean.

Yeah, I've got a '72 Ford and '81 GMC shorties that both have them. I was simply unaware they were sold anywhere. Hadn't considered the use on trailers and other vehicles.
That's a rather simple thing for me to have learned for today, but it's going to have to do.

I plan on welding them to the inside of my front bumper so I can use it as a step to be able to step on top of the front tires. Easier to work on the engine and clean the windshields.

I was JUST looking at those on Amazon. One of the companies sells a stainless version that I'm going to get to make it easier to get into the back door. I'd love to have some RV type pull out steps, but those are seriously pricey!
We have them on the front of the bus and they are great for getting up to the engine compartment.

Have you considered making a foot hole in the steel bumper?

I'd hate to see what could happen if one of those little fold down steps snapped off.

Hmmmm, that's an idea. I'm still hoping I can get a single RV pullout step somewhere, and we did just make friends with a welding guy.

And, we have somehow have managed not to plunge to our deaths climbing the skinny rebar stairs to the roof (yet)!

My '46 came with one that looks just the same and was used to reach the windshield on the driver side. It is installed with bolts going through the body and a small piece of 1/8" plate steel on the back side. Appears to be original, so they can definitely be mounted securely. I am adding another one to the passenger side.

PS...if you plan on welding it and it is galvanized...be sure to thoroughly grind away the galvanizing along the areas you want to weld.

My 00 Amtran has these mounted like Tango's. Just behind the front tire on both sides to help you get up to the windshield to wash it, or to get better access to the engine when the hood is up... They're pretty useful.

Ours are on either side of the bus body at the very front. Here's one (just to the front of the fuel door).

Are those cast? If so. will be tough to weld. Bolts make damaged step easier to replace.
