Liquid soap dispenser/shower?

One reason I wanted a shower/sink was to have a good place to wash hands. Any good solutions to where to keep a liquid soap dispenser? I've googled suction devices but am iffy about what would work. I don't mind putting it away for travel but would like something I could use easily in camp.

Google "3m command bathroom caddy" for solutions.

Found, will those stay up under the weight of a soap bottle? And would the corner caddy work?

I certainly would not use a suction cup device, because it IS a certainty that it will fall off, and with the weight of liquid soap, most likely sooner than later. While I really don’t know how well 3M Command items would hold up (they are removable), if the caddy is something you plan to keep for as long as you own the trailer, I would suggest 3M VHB tape. If Glennn or someone else has used 3M Command products in the wet environment of a wet bath, perhaps he or they can comment on their holding power in moist conditions.

We have had this one up over a year and installed with 3M command bath strips.(important to use the bath strips)

I have 4 other bathroom accessories installed for over 5 years with 3M bath strips and so far nothing has come off.

I have had the 3M bath caddy installed for at least a year and it is as secure as all the other 3M Command products. Holds considerable weight. I had a suction cup bath caddy and took delight in tossing it into the recycling. It was always found on the floor in the shower.

3M has Command products for wet environments and the bath caddy is one of them. I haven't tried corner installation.

If you like using campground showers, you might be better off with a mesh bag that you can hang on a 3M Command hook. You can use it in the trailer, or take it to the camp shower.

Good to know, Greg. I am not a big Command user; I didnít even know they offered bath strips.

Avoiding campground showers for the duration of Covid. But I did find an old post where someone used the corner one on a 17 so will try it. Thanks!

The IKEA suction cup products are very good. My liquid soap dispenser has never come off in two years. If you doubt that you can always use it with some double sided tape.
See these suction cup products including towel racks here.

One member used a shower rod above the ledge on the outboard side of the shower area. We did the same and it contains a pump soap bottle, shampoo bottle etc. It works perfect.

Thanks, I was wondering about that. I think it is too low to be convenient for soap but would be nice for other things.

Bass pro and Cabela's have these available. We have 3 in the bath area, they have 3 large suction cups. We have never had them come loose from the wall, and we are on some pretty rough roads
