Where do you hang towels?

Last weekend we were fortunate enough to be invited by the lovely and gracious Lucy and Charlie to have a look at their brand new 5.0TA. Yeah, we were more than slightly excited .

While looking at things, my wife realized that there were no towel holders on the inside of the bathroom door like was on our Casita. She asked me "where do people hang their towels?" She is not keen on the idea of hanging them outside of the bathroom and neither am I. I can just visualize the way it would look with 4 mismatched towels covering the wall...a sight only an abstract artist could possibly appreciate.

So where do you folks hang your towels? (I'll be embarrassed if everyone says "outside wall" ) And have any of you swapped out the door for a solid wood door? Thats another thing we are thinking of too. Escape said if we reinforced the wall the door attaches to, it would be made out of 3/4" plywood, so it hold it I would think. Course that is just a possibility.

Thanks as always for your input

We have 2 Command Hooks up above the toilet that we can use for one but seldom do. You won't like it but we hang them outside the bathroom! But then we only use 2 towels.

We usually hang ours outside for a while when coming back from the showers, as they usually dry out quicker there. Once dry, they are folded and put away. We do hang them on the outside of the bathroom door otherwise, and never have really worried how they look, as we are just camping anyway.

We did try in the bathroom, but it took way to long for them to dry out, if in fact they ever did. We did not have a fan in our bath vent though, and I imagine that would help.

We deal a lot more with wet jackets and clothes than we ever do with towels though, and those get hung up in the same way mentioned above, usually on hooks on the outside of the trailer.

A solid bath door would add weight on the hinges and would increase the overall trailer weight.
We've been using the 3M Command hooks and place them where most useful. You can easily change your mind and move them without damage.
Wet towels would get hung outside the trailer until dry and then folded and stored.
Dish towel hangs from a 3M hook near the stove.

I placed cleats similar (ours are coated in black vinyl) to these under the overhead cabinets in the four corners of the dinette area. I run a nylon cord in a continuous square and secure it with a cam cleat. This gives us two lines to hang towels to dry and windows on either side for a little ventilation (supported by the Maxx Fan. We bought microfiber towels for the trailer; they do seem to dry faster than terry cloth.

Another fan of the STUGVIK. Over a year on some pretty bad roads, high and low temps and has not moved or fallen. Scott

We have extra Stugvik holders that we stick on the outside window to dry things under the awning. Easy on/off.

There is enough solid wood at the door edges to attach towel bars to. I made some from s/s tube and made them so the bracket attached to the solid wood frame at the sides.

Also made one for hanging sink tea towels etc.

For a sopping wet large bath towel we'd probably try and dry it outside before putting back in the bathroom.

Hi Nathan! I brought from home one of those metal hang-over-the-door gadgets with three hooks. Works great.
