Clothesline Suggestions

I have searched and have not found anything that is quite like I am looking for, so I am hoping that someone here can offer some good suggestions.

Is there such a thing as a clothesline assembly that can be mounted in a receiver hitch on the back bumper of the travel trailer? I have seen some that hang off the ladder or such, but we do not have anything like that on our trailer. I open to any suggestions, even if it is something that can be modified with an add-on bracket or something and mount inside the receiver.

I had some rope I was going to use just for this purpose, but then found out the parks we have been going to, do not want you tying around the trees, so that sort of put a damper on that plan.

Best Wishes,
Chuck

One of the best dryers is your car. Cut a pvc pipe the width of your rear seat and attach two wires on each end to hang it on the coat hangers that are in the car. The heat generated inside a closed car will dry items in two hours.

I have built a two piece Clothes Line Rack, installed with only 3 wing nuts, no holes, no brackets, stored easily and holds the heavy wet towels.
The hardwood pole installs on the spare tire bracket.(2 wing nuts)
The upper rack , is $30 worth of electrical PVC fittings, the square T-connector gives the top connection strength with only one bolt and wing nut.
More detailed pictures on my "Photo Album" named "Trailer Modifications".

We saw this in a campground: A lady had a clothesline device attached to the bumper with D-clamps. It was a square metal frame with several pieces of clothesline running across it. The top of it appeared to be attached to the ladder so that the device was relatively flat against the back of the trailer for transit, then it folded down at an angle for use in the campground. It looked pretty nifty, but I have no idea if it's available commercially of if they made it themselves.

I've seen these being used. It is attached to the rear bumper.


RV clothesline. Disassembles in seconds for easy storage. Installs on all 4" and 4-1/2" RV bumpers with no drilling. White powder-coated, rust resistant finish includes 33' of rope.

Should be an easy enough job to make one, if you're handy.

If you are still looking at options, my wife takes with us one just like this that collapses and stores very easily. Many campgrounds prefer you use something like this or similar to the bumper attachable type as they don't appreciate clothes lines strung between trees. This type works great for us as we just open it up on the back side of the camper.
Try:Foldable Drying Rack - Stores and Prices
One other reason we like this type is most of the time the back of our TT is not parked in a sunny spot or dosen't get much sun....so we move this around as needed.
