Wow, I hope my TR4 doesn't leak that bad that I need a drain hose!

Not sure about this sort of approach but that brings to mind the thought of
adding rails to my platforms and then using sheet plastic (4 or 6 mil) and
suspending it between the platforms.  That means the "tray' would be
disposable and I could then cut the plastic based on where my platforms
are.  Something to think about....
