I bet they would stick to the exterior quite well, even with a coat of wax. This is where I like suction cups though, as they can be repeatedly put up and taken down when not needed.

Because you remove the hook from the base by raising the hook part, I'd be concerned that it would be left behind on some washboard road.
I've used the suction type with success, cleaning the suction cup and the trailer with Windex before mounting.

Installation of the Command products requires using alcohol as a surface prep. The hooks could be removed during transport and the mounts left in place.

Wasn't sure a suction cup would hold an umbrella ... but if it holds that mat it should work for an umbrella as well . Thanks ......

Is that possibly the mat you would use for your outdoor shower , and would it be wet when you hang it up ?

That mat is for drying dishes, so it probably had absorbed water in that pic. Bed Bath and Beyond item.
For the outside shower, I take the all-weather mat from the back seat of the RAV4 and use that to stand on and prevent dirt from splashing up.
No, that's not me.

Note suction cup towel holder and suction cup shower head holder.

We use the suction cups all the time both inside and out. We even bought a different shower holder that allows us to keep the shower want out of the way of the sink. All of these have held up on some really rough roads this past summer. Used some command strips in the shower area to put up the shower curtain when used. Took the installed track down. Like the little hooks with the curtain better and we stow the curtain someplace else when not in use. Gives us much more room.

My wife got the idea to spray paint the white 3M Command hooks. I use a Krylon Fusion (khaki satin). Matches the wood grain and the snap caps the factory uses to attach the window coverings. Very durable. We hang keys on one and after 6 months, there's no scratching off or wear.

We use power lock suction cup hooks outside stuck to the camper to dry towels, attach and hang clothes lines, hang brooms and any thing else we can think of.
