Question Need a paper towel solution....

hi All,

well we are on our first LONG trip and are thinking of things to make it even better! one of those things that comes to mind is a paper towel holder. I recall seeing pictures of one that had a kinda pointed shape?If anyone has ideas I would love to hear of them. thanks

Cheers Janet:

We use one that hooks over a cabinet door. It can be turned to the inside to be out of the way, to the outside to be handy, or removed for travel if desired. With the limited space in the trailer, it is nice to be able to have it out of the way.

I have not seen the pointed one and you do not specify counter or mounted one this is the one I ordered from Home Depot.

I picked this up from the local Canadian Superstore and installed it with double-sided tape in the location shown. It's completely out of the way yet easy to get to from inside or out.

Cheers,

And, this is the one we have ( have the same at home ). Mine was installed ( in 2008 ) with double sided tape, above the sink on the underside of the cabinet. It's out of the way and handy. Just have to remember to remove the paper towel and the TP when traveling or they will unravel.

I use that one at home and will supply Reace with one to install when he builds our 19' It works great - will not unravel by itself.

I don't know how to attach a picture but use this one at home. The same as a wall mount worked in my MH, never unravelled. To me it's the best! Perfect Tear Paper Towel Holder - Bed Bath & Beyond

Bingo, probably the only solution to the space I don't have. I like Glenn's rig but my 17B has a window there. Jim, the specs say it's designed for 7/8 thick doors; how does it work on our 3/4 thickness?

The one Jim has is what we use in our 17B--and we keep it to the inside too--I find if you squish the TP roll and the paper towel roll they don't come unraveled in travelling.

I have the same towel holder Glenn pictures in post #5. I don't know it they are available in Canada since I couldn't find them on my Nova Scotia trip, but Viva brand towels kinda stick together enough that they rarely unroll.

Another advantage is one of the versions called "Choose a Size" has more perforations so that you can tear off a 1/2 size sheet rather than using a whole one for small needs. They are also one of the softest & most absorbent paper towels I've found.

If I'm stuck with another brand, I put a rubber band around the towel roll when traveling to keep it from unrolling.
