Me too. I bought nearly every item from the Stugvik series. Only half of them worked well, and are still holding strong. I think the slightest imperfection in the suction material prohibits a good surface bond.

I have a Moen stick on grab handle for the inside of the door and it works great so I don't get it.
Anyways, Ikea had a silverware tray that is made out of a thin enough plastic that it was easy to score with a utility knife and make fit into the drawer. it's grey plastic and may be 'Rational'.
They had led light bars, three or four sections about 11 inches long snap together, they are 12 volts so if you are handy you can just cut off the transformer and wire them up to the trailer and put them in the counter cupboards. Some skills are required for this. They are only about 12 dollars.
We use the rug that someone else has mentioned, very good.
And I have no problem spending money at Ikea, be it for the trailer or the house.
Also had trouble with the suction cups staying finally added 3 m to back of cups . I use for a handle on the door . So far working or we are getting the Moen handle . Couldn't figure why they wouldn't stick . Pat

Bath pockets

I had good results with the Stugvik brand on the more rigid walls (attached to the outside shell and interior walls) on my 21 but the back wall (behind the toilet) didn't stick well with a 2-cup device like a towel holder. Finally played with how the wall acts during travel and found a whole lot more flex in it than the other walls. A single suction cup would stick fine, but a 2-cup device would lose suction on one cup after sitting backwards on the pot sipping a brew and deflecting it back and forth with a finger.

So I decided to use a shampoo bottle holder I use for Casita baths. Sticks out 3 inches, 3 inches high, 7 degree angled bottom for drainage, taped on with 3M RP45 tape good to 200F.

Wifey likes it!

Can an admin rotate this? I forgot iPhones have an attitude.

IKEA Purchase

Thinking about buying the TRONES shoe boxes and attaching them on the bathroom wall that faces the door on the 19 Escape. The boxes are 10 1/8"wide, 15 3/8 " high and 7 1/4 " deep. Would that stick out too far and impair the ease of getting into the dinette seat or intrude too much into the space between the bathroom wall and the kitchen?

Seems like it would stick out too far to me..............
