Clothesline

Here is a clothesline that our seller made. He had seen one just like it. It uses PVC and flag holders. Neat, eh??

Re: Clothesline

Neat. Does it stay well secured while stowed and moving? Anything additional to help keep from vibrating against the trailer ?

Re: Clothesline

It is a neat idea, but much bulking than a length of 2mm cord. Does it break down to pack away?

Re: Clothesline

David, the top pole comes out of the other two and then those two poles come out of the flag holders. It is kept in the box. Only takes a minute to put up, of course. I know we'll be using it plenty.
No real bulk, Jim, because the poles just go together when in the box. Have to use that great big box for something! The clothesline is light compared to other items we have put in the box. The batteries still leave a great deal of space. The question is how much weight you want up there and the clothesline on that is a nonissue.

Re: Clothesline

Hi everyone,
I think outdoor removable clothes lines are a great addition along with outdoor showers for those who coastal camp. Great for hanging up wet towels,bathing suits,
and wet clothing. In some parks there are no fixed objects to "string a line" and in some it is against the rules. For anyone who doesn't want to build one, they can
purchase a sturdy aluminum model at camping world, E-bay, and other RV supply stores for $40 to $60. Easy to install and store in 4" PVC.
