need laundry rack ideas

Looking for ideas for mods to use to dry out kids swim suits and towels. Kinda thinking of something off the back bumper that can be easily put up and taken down.

I made one out of PVC and nylon rope that mounts to my ladder. Cost about $10 total and works quite well. Trailer is currently about 200 miles away or I'd send a picture.

From Camping World:


Keep meaning to order one. I've read a few reviews that you need to add a brace between the top rung so that it stays apart better. But, fairly inexpensive and easy to stow.

Good point, ExGMTech - we use something similar:


What I don't like is the bulky size when it's folded up. I always feel like it's in my way as I'm going for chairs or whatnot.

I want the CW one that I linked to earlier because it should be much smaller when broken down.

I have the one above and just finished mounting it to the new camper. It worked flawlessly on my old 5th and was an easy re-install on the new one. I just pull off one of the aluminum legs and roll it up,, pull off the other leg and store it in the basement. Takes one second, doesn't take up a lot of room and never felt the need to add a brace yet after using it for 8 years.

That is what I had in mind, now to decide whether to purchase or build with conduit. Cajun- I assume you added that crossbar?
