Umbra Hooks in Escape 19

Can anyone post pictures showing where they placed Umbra hooks in their Escape 19?

No pic handy but,

One above the thermostat over the bed ( fridge wall) and one on the outside bathroom wall I would also add one on the back of the bathroom wall next to the bench seat at the front. We had to trim one down one hook size less.

Ordered ours off of Amazon and had them sent to ETI. They installed them in about 15 minutes during our orientation. We had them placed here and just around the corner to the right over the end of the dinette seat. Our wardrobe closet was somewhat limited after we had two drawers put in so the Umbra hooks make up the difference for the few items that we need to hang. Love em.

Thanks so much for the posts and photos. I have ordered an 8 hook Umbra flip hook today and will have it cut into two 4 hook sections and installed by ETI when picking up the trailer. Will instal one section on the wall beside the door as above and another around the corner.

do you know how these were installed? I'm a little nervous about drilling in this area and it would seem stick-on might be the ticket?

Steve, we already have one near the door on our 17B and just bought another to put in about that same spot. I think I can hit a wood framing piece it I put it all the way up at the top by the trim and angle to screws upward. The 19 may be different, but it does not feel like there is a framing piece on ours where that left side is attached in our 17B. I've also thought of using the adhesive from 3M Command hooks and attaching with those.

Baglo has been brave and a Command hook on the wood grain vinyl and pulled it off without damage.

I spent the first year using my trailer with Command hooks, moving them around until I found the locations that worked for me. After that, I installed Umbra hooks. I used a combination of screws & glue. Still there after 2 1/2 more years.

If you do it yourself, and need to cut one it fit, be aware that there is a steel wire hinge pin that runs the length of the unit - cost me a power miter box saw blade.

Yep - Jon save my radial arm saw blade with that warning! I owe him a good brew someday.
