What does everyone use for a shower caddy..if you use anything?

We need something..no room for shampoo/conditioner and bar soap on the little corner shelf (2001 model 40').

If you have something tidy that you really like ...pics would be great if you have any....

We put the unit on the shower wall with shampoo, conditioner, liquid soap. Works great.
Also put a bar in the shower for bath towels, it is a spring loaded one, fits at back of shower leave it in at all times. Great place to hang wet towels. Sorry no picts
Good Luck
Rebel

We have a shower caddy that we hang over the back shower wall. It has suction cups that hold it in place. I think it originally was one that hung on the shower stem and my DW 'modified' it to hang over the shower stall. It has three shelves and places to hang wash cloths, etc.

My DW found one at Wally-World for a full size shower in our sticks and bricks.
We are spending more time in our MH so she took the darned thing and put it in the MH. There is almost enough room for me, '99 Pace Arrow.
When we go to the next park we have to remember to take it down, wrap it in a towel and put it on the floor.
She's happy- so I'm happy.

Stan,
We installed a 3 chamber soap despenser simlar to the items in attached website, the unit we have is self adhesive to the wall. Should be able to find them most anywhere in the 1, 2, 3 or 4 chamber versions. Sure keeps the shower clutter down.

We have a four chamber, but really need only three.

Our shower is reversed on the '01...

We thought about one of these dispensers..but didn't know how reliable the stick on mounting system would hold up.

Do they STAY on..or do they turn loose once in a while?

I looked it some caddys that I thought might be altered an hang on the top of the side glass wall...but none that were easy to adapt.

Thanks

Stan, we use a similar one as TakePride...we've used it on all 4 of our motorhomes and have never had slippage or any type of problem. Our current one has been in there now for 4 years. The only difference is that ours has a tray underneath where you can put bar soap if you prefer that, and hooks to hang razors, washcloths or whatever. Love it! I'm not home or in the MH right now, but will be next week. I'll try to remember to take a picture to post.

This one has been up for 8 years without fail. The one in my house has been up for 15. I did accidentally knock one off the wall in my house after 7 years. It took a good whack.

If you're not sure about the security, just put a couple silicone puddles on the backside when mounting.

I've used two types. One where the individual chambers come out of a housing for refill and the other where the entire unit is slid onto a base plate that is mounted/glued to the wall.

Okaay..thanks boys and girls.

If the stick on caddys have worked well for everyone, I really like the look of them.

I think we will get one of those....

I also like the idea rebelone mentioned for wet towels....I really needed a place to hang a couple when I flooded my coach with the flush valve incident.

I havent seen a spring loaded towel rack though..I need to look around for something like that too..

Thanks again everyone....
