We'll be in the trailer for an extended trip very soon. This will give me plenty of time to experiment with a variety of situations.

I'm going to try the wash cloth and bath towel combination to see how I like that. I've done something similar once or twice but I hadn't thought of using the wash cloth idea on a regular basis.

I'll also see how quickly our towels dry using the 12V Endless Breeze fan to move some air around.

I recently purchased a "large" (smaller than most bath towels) REI quick-drying towel - one for me and one for DW. I tried it at home. It feels a little unusual but I was dry and it dried out quickly too.

I'll let you know how things turn out.

OK, here is the so called skinny? My DW and I are old sailboat full timers, or in the yachting world, live a boarders. No washer no dryer, just a life line to hang wet stuff on. Bottom line, we spent large dollars on micro stuff the best terry cloth deep pile monogrammed fancy guest poop! Dollar store coton, does the best, dries quick, cost less, last just as long, when done cut into usable rags to service all maintance needs. Try it you will agree!

We've been on the road for a few weeks. I'm using REI microfiber and DW is using lightweight cotton. When there's little air movement the REI definitely dries faster. In addition, the REI is very compact.

When we use the small 12V box fan to stir the air in the trailer both types of towels dry in a little over an hour.

Update...

I've used the REI microfiber towel several times and I have to admit it's a little odd.

We attended an RV rally recently and came across a waffle-pattern microfiber towel. The sales presentation was convincing and I tried drying my hands on the waffle towel. While it's still not the same as cotton it is much closer. I've used the waffle-pattern microfiber towel for several days and it's easy to use, dries me quickly (and thoroughly) and it dries in about an hour. There is a big space saving advantage compared to the small lightweight cotton towels we use.

The waffle-pattern microfiber towel was $15 each - ouch! Now that I've found something that works I may take time to look around on the internet to see if I can find a lower price.

"microfiber" is term used for polyester fiber, which is a plastic.
It does not absorb anything, and is prone to oil based stains.
Avoid it, most folks would never buy a polyester towel, and
that is why they now use the term microfiber. Stick to
natural fibers, such as cotton.

We love terry cloth towels. We just keep two set out and we always have one set that's perfectly dry.

I wouldn't buy anything that is microfiber. A total waste of good money.

You will never get anything better than 100% natural cotton.

For drying an auto or your coach a large chamois is the best.
