Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

Curious if anyone has installed a paper towel rack on the 19-foot Escape. Where did you mount it or are you using a freestanding rack?

Re: Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

I think I have seen them mounted horizontally on the range hood (magnetic I think) or vertically on the sliding door bulkhead. Seems like someone had one in or on one of the under sink doors, too.

Regards,

Matt

Re: Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

I have a 17B--but we got a paper towel holder that goes over our door under the kitchen sink..So it is behind the door--out of the way (especially when travelling--yet easy enough to get to)
I think I got it at Home Outfitters...

Hi: All...In the 5.0 there's enough room to stand a roll of p.t. in the bottom cupboard. It's the one under the sink that's not very deep due to the wheel well being behind it. We also keep hand sanitizer and other cleaning supplies in there. Then it's all behind a door, but ready to use!!! Alf

That's where we keep ours. We take it down & wedge it between the stove cover & the wall when in transit though. I don't recall where we got it though.

Re: Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

Ah, a magnetic paper towel holder, now that's the ticket. Didn't know that such a neat product existed. This holder almost rivals Jim Bennett's sliding shelf. I did a search and there are several designs. Now to settle on one design and made an order. Thanks to all for your help. See you at the Osooyoos Rally

Re: Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

Hi Rick and Laura,

We used a 1/2 inch piece of cherry as a base. Counter sank two 3/4 inch Lee Valley rare earth magnets, just proud of the cherry, then using spray adhesive, attached a piece of that rubber shelf liner to make the magnets and shelf liner flush. You can now add any towel holder you like using screws that are less than 1/2 inch. The magnets are very strong, the shelf liner keeps it from moving around on the range hood and you can pull it off if you wish, but it never falls down even on the worst roads.

Re: Paper Towel Rack and the 19 Footer

I have a 19, and I mounted a paper towel holder vertically by the window on the door's left side bulkhead under the cabinet. Works great there -- close, but completely out of the way.
