Escape 19 Owners- Where do you store paoer towels??

I've seen lots of photos of paper towel holders in the 21, but space is more limited in the 19. Where do you store your necessary, but bulky, paper towels? DH found a nice looking holder, but it is free standing and I'd rather not tie up counter space. There does not appear to be enough room over the sink.
Has anyone mounted a holder on the stripper pole?
I'd love ve to see photos

We used a hanger that hooked over a cabinet door. Still do. Can be turned inside the sink cabinet out of the way, or on the front side of needed.

Here's what we use for holding paper towel roll on our 2015 Escape 19. I believe we purchased it at Canadian Tire. It has a ratchet mechanism that prevents the towels from unrolling while in transit.

Hmmmm. Is that mounted to the underside of the cabinet?

Having trouble visualizing. What kind of hanger? Do you have a photo?
Thanks!

I don't have a 19 but I do have a 15 with even more limited storage space. I installed a PT holder under the sink alongside the wastebasket. I like it out of sight so this location suits me quite well. I also use Viva towels in the trailer as they're a much better paper towel in a more compact roll.

And here's mine. Held up with double sided tape. Light weight. Nothing to break. Been there for eight years.
If you squeeze the paper towel roll ( or a TP roll ) so that it is oval shape, it won't unravel when you travel ( thanks Alf ).

We have the same holder, same spot. It's a Kamenstein. I like having the holder reachable from the entry, since I seem to need a paper towel when I'm outside just as much or more than inside.

We have the same paper towel holder as Glenn. Thanks for the tip about squeezing the roll so it won't unravel. Now I can take remove paper towel from holder off our preflight check list

I like that unit also. I mounted ours in the corner by the sink. It's out of the way and I like being able to reach into the trailer and grab a piece of towel from outside.

We bought our Kamenstein Perfect Tear Wall Mount Paper Towel Holder at Bed Bath and Beyond.

https://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/1/1...el-holder.html

It's mounted vertically but kind of upside down.

I added a small bracket with a spring doorstop to keep the roll from unwinding.

We mounted ours the same way. I wanted to mount it like Jim did but ours did not have enough space to allow a full roll there. We slip a rubber band on ours when traveling and remove it while parked. Maybe it's the brand ( Bounty ) but ours does not unroll while parked.

I use the same paper towel holder as gbaglo held in place with double sticky tape. My solution to preventing unrolling paper towels when traveling is to use Viva brand towels which have a cloth like texture and do not unroll during travel. I tried this solution after coming home from a long trip to find the new roll of paper towels neatly stacked and fan-folded on the kitchen sink.
