In the past someone posted some pictures of using PVC pipes with end caps mounted to roof rack for storing GPs while traveling, so i have 2 questions
1st: could you post some pictures again
2nd: can you put 2 GPs in there and not have them banging and rattling around?

Work great for GP and/or euro paddles. For those of us who have reason not to trust our knot skills.

...will carry 3 paddles with 3.5" wide blades. To protect the paddles in transit and prevent rattling, my girlfriend sewed a sleeve to hold them. It's handy for keeping them organized when they're not in the case, too.
I also sewed a double sleeved case|

great idea, i can just leave them in that. Thanks for the measurements, that helps a lot, and i have noticed that contractors vehicles have a little rack for the tubes that look solid. good info. thanks all.

Depending on what kind of rack you have, you can use large diameter electrical conduit hangers to attach 4" PVC to the rack. I've used back to back "broom hangers" (called Mineralacs in the trades) for fastening tubular carriers to rack structures securely. These are flat metal wrap around straps with a bolt fastener at the top and a perforated recessed base. A 1 1/2" clamp will fit around some rack struts and it can be sistered to a matching 4" clamp for the tube.
