Do we get to call our bath vent a skylight? Kewl, we be sofistimucated now.

I have often thought of putting a white plastic medicine cabinet on the wall, just don't need more storage yet. We hang our laundry bag on that wall using a suction cup.

We have hung wet towels in the bath, but I find it takes way longer to dry them out. If for no other reason, this would be a good reason to have a fan in the vent, like I believe the newer models have now, don't they?

I think I'd soften up the edges on the toilet if it was my mod.

It does sound a bit more upper class then roof vent so PFFFT!! I am thinking of using it the small cabinet for things that will live permanently in the trailer. The towel holders I felt would be a good place to hang them after they are dry between uses. I think your right the newers ones have a fan.

I've thought about the medicine cabinet also. It would be much better than putting things in those stick-on type holders. However the space in the hanging locker is also valuable to me so I'm still thinking about that one.

I also wanted some towel bars that would be convenient and, more importantly, hold the towels so that they were hanging free and clear, not bunched up, so that they would have a chance to dry.

I didn't think that there was too much "meat" to the door frame so I designed the brackets so that the screws could go into solid wood. They've worked well.

While I was at it I also made a long one for the kitchen area.

Post photos of the cabinet if you proceed with it.

Ron where did you get those towel bars?

And Cypher I like the clever mounting 'spider'. I'd like to use that space too.
