I have a idea, when ever they build the inside walls of any of the enclosed baths. they should make all the wall board 1/2 in. thick, to make it easy to hang all the towel bars, hand towel bars ect. This is a minimum of extra weight and you would have something to really hang them on instead of those dam mollys in the thin wallboard. It seems so cheesy to try to hang something like a towel bar on a wall that wiggles.

In our 30RKE, we have no suitable wall for a towel rack that wouldn't interfer with opening the door to the washer/dryer, so we have an over-the-door towel rack. We considered getting towel racks that we could attach directly to the door, but decided to try the over-the-door rack first to see how it works out before putting holes in the door.

We've gone through two over-the-door towel racks so far. The first one we bought at K-Mart in Blythe, CA. It was the only style they had -- with bars that curved away from the door.

After using it for a couple of months, we decided we simply didn't like that style (the curved bars kept getting in Earl's way), so we bought another one at Wal-Mart in Rapid City, SD. This one is simply a series of 4 large hooks from which the bath towels and hand towels are hung (sorry, but we threw away the packaging, so I don't know the brand/model name). Some people might not like their towels hung from hooks as opposed to being hung on a rod, but I think we'll probably sticks with this one as it seems to be working for us. If, at sometime down the road, we decide we don't like this one, then we'll probably break down and get towel rods that screw into the door.

We solved our problem for towel storage by buying two wooden rings that swing on their respective mounting blocks. (I believe we found them in Target). We attached one to each of the linen closet doors in the little toilet room. The rings are about 5 inches in diameter, so you don't have to bunch the towels up tightly to hang them. The rings are stained oak and match the doors perfectly. I was initially concerned that wet towels might damage the finish of the doors, but after 3 years there is no adverse effect.

Thanks Linda and Greenthumb. We use a over the bathroom door (enclosed bath) towel rack made to be permanent that works OK....... but always looking for a bit better way to hang towels. Most RVs lack towel racks as a rule. OK if your going to the lake for a weekend, more of a PIA when you call your rig home! Tom
