Best way to bury vinyl fence posts?


I noticed that some suggest to bury 5" vinyl fence posts directly in concrete for a 6' high privacy fence. Is this sturdy or should there be a PT post in the concrete then slip the vinyl over this?

What would you suggest?

When I have my fence company do installs on my jobs they bury the posts in about 16" of concrete and finish with tamped soil never had any problems, Gate post should be of a heavier gauge

So the posts are just hollow? No support in the middle unless it is for a gate?

What about end posts?

gate post and end post are usually of a heavier gauge. I haven't seen the posts filled solid. But then again my installer does not buy from home depot or Lowe's, he uses a good fence suppler
