I'm not a ladies- but we have a handful of "over the door" coat hangers that we use for towels.

We also want to get one of the bumper clothes line things for when it's warm out.

Congrats on the new 290 Touring Edition! You are gonna love the Lane furniture, leveling system and central vac in TE.

We found the bed to be very uncomfortable. We added a 2.5" gel/foam topper from Sams Club and now we sleep great! Best $90 we ever spent.

We just hang our towels over the shower door. Doesn't seem to be an issue. We do tend to run the fan for at least an hour after we have finished in the morning.

on your shakedown trip!

We just took delivery of a 290RLT TE on February 14. Did your shakedown cruise and are very happy. This is our first 5th wheel after owning a Class B van.
We installed two 28" cabinet pulls below our cabinets in our Class B so we could hang towels. We intend to do the same on our new trailer. I will install them above the sofa. They are very unobtrusive and look very professional. We may also install one under the cabinets above the swivel rockers. They are easy to install, however you may have to purchase longer mounting screws. We purchased ours at Ikea. 28 inch Brushed Stainless Steel Cabinet Bar Pull Handle | eBay
has a photo of a similar pull to the ones we purchased.
