Where to put paper towels?

I just can't find the right place for paper towels. Virtually every RV I enter the first thing I look at is roll location. Rolling around loose on counter seems to be the most popular. That's where ours is, after two years on the road. If I put plain horizontal towel holder in the one best place - guess what I coverup - Yup an electrical outlet and the only one centrally located on workspace. I could move outlet or just add another but thought I would see what everbody else is doing first.

We placed ours under an overhead cabinet near the sink. Been there for 7 years with no issues. DW still likes the location.

I made a vertical holder. Half in wood cut in a square slightly larger than a roll, drilled hole in center and glued a dowel pin same height as roll. Used a router on the base to improve the look and stained to match coach trim. Move it where you need it.

Personally, I prefer this type...



A circle of the non-skid shelf lining keeps it from moving while traveling. I like that it's portable and can be moved to the tabletop or outside on a picnic table for "messy" dining.

We put a holder in the sink cabinet. You have to open the door to get to them, but they are out of site!

We use a heavy, stone one with the no move rubber pad on the bottom. The countertop is Corian and the holder has never moved or fallen over.

I have a light wooden holder that I had in the house. I can move it where ever as Sarah W said. I didn't put anything on the bottom and it hasn't moved.

We have a vertical paper towel holder that sits next to the sink. If it's in the way at any particular time we just move it and put it back. Has worked for us.

We have this stainless steel holder that only unwinds when pulled on. It has a racheting piece in it that holds it firmly for tear off. It has never moved. It is on my countertop in front of my kitchen window next to the sink. Can be moved whenever i want to use my space differently.
