There are a number of kits you can buy from suppliers that will assemble and hang on the ladder of the coach.

There have been a number of PVC clothes line driers limited only to imagination.

If you're going to be staying in RV parks, check the rules first...many don't allow clotheslines outside.

I have a plastic link chain that I bought from Lowes. I string it from one awning rail to the other with ball bungees. I have accumulated a pile of those plastic clips that you buy for the plastic clothes hangers. I have them attached to the chain (I had to take most of them apart in order to get them on... it would take a while if you are doing a whole chain all at one time. It took me a couple of months to string mine up. My clips are spaced to hold a pair of jeans. Shirts I hang on hanger and then hang the clothes hanger in a chain link. I can even hang a whole sheet (just one... fold in half lengthwise and clip in place). You can usually get away with hanging out three or four shirts and a couple pairs of pants. Placed on hangers, it looks more like you are "airing out" your shirts. There are lots of private parks that do not like the looks of clothes lines. I was in one once (and never again) that object to our hanging a bath towel out on our line so that it would dry thoroughly before hanging it up in the bathroom. You should have no problem with public campgrounds and clothes lines.

Someone gave me this hint for my rig which has a two part rear ladder ... the hint involves the awning rod and the lower part of the ladder ...

Attach the bottom part of the ladder to the bottom rung of the fixed part ... swing the bottom part out and up ... hold it in place by hooking the awning rod between a rung on the lower part and the fixed part ... (I generally put the lower part on "wrong side out" because of the way my lower part is constructed)

Works for me ...
