Update!! The suggestion by KyDan to turn the hangers around on the closet rod worked great for the first two trips this year. Last weekend we went on our third outing and we had to take the interstate, which is pretty bumpy, especially the bridges and overpasses. Wehn we got to our site and were setting up, I went to get something out of the closet and discovered that not only was everything from the closet on the floor, but the entire closet rod that pulled completely OUT of the wall. So my DH will have to do another mod to this closet before our next outing in two weeks. This will be the 2nd mod; the bottom shelf collapsed on our last outing of 2011. He'll make it "better than new."

We have the plastic hangers. The diameter of the hoop where it hangs is just under 5/16. We cut 2inch long pcs. of tygon tubing and slipped over the end of the hook.You can take the hangers down & put them back up same as original. We have traveled (ROUGH) roads and the hangers stay put! The closets are in the rear of the trailer so the movment is at the (MAX)! Youroo!!

Guess my point being is that the hangers stayed on the rod, but the cheap closet wall (1/8 in), the two small screws and cheap plastic closet rod bracket failed. Dont't think it had anything to do with the hangers this time.

The clothes bouncing up & down with the hangers will sure tear things up, or down in this case. Use the expandable curtain rods right next to the vertical part of the hangers on both sides to keep them from bouncing.

The hangers I brought from CW will stay on the rod but sometimes I find the jackets at the bottom of the closet. I also take along a few regular hangers to use at the site since the CW hangers are harder to remove. Over all I try to hang as little as possible while traveling.

Update!! My uber-handy DH did the closet mod this past weekend. Clothes are now hung back up (backwards) and this set up is much, much stronger than the original installation.
