I have used a rubbermaid with dryer hose as a hide. It works fine. They seem to like the hose more than the tub, though - probably because it's so spacious, even with sand in it. They prefer snug hides where they can wedge in. I don't use the tubs anymore, mostly because they're so big. Now I use slate over pavers like you mentioned; pre-formed "mesa" hides that are low, compact, and lightweight; and kitty litter pans filled with sand, with a slate over top except a gap at one end. I used the litter pan set-up for nest boxes this last year and it worked very well. They seemed to like them as hides, too, (and as a place to dig), so I kept them.
