Dumb question #1 toilet paper holder

Ok, it's our first RV and after getting it home and doing the 432,367 things that need to be done to get a new RV ready I need to install our toilet paper holder brackets. The mist convenient and out of the way to put it is on the wall next to and behind the toilet. So this is what would be the "exterior wall." I've got short 3/8 inch screws to mount it but wanted to be sure about putting short screws into an exterior wall. I KNOW there's got to be insulation and at LEAST 1/2 an inch to the actual EXTERIOR siding/wall, correct?

I would think so, but.....are you just screwing it into the "drywall"? Without going into a stud or using an a hollow wall anchor, I would think the toilet paper holder will end up falling off.

The outer wall is, I think 2 inches thick. You can lay under one of the sidewalls and see the thickness. If that is where you wanting to mount it, just drill a small hole with a plastic anchor and you should be good. Ours is mounted where you'd expect on the AFT wall. Its came with our used RV, some sort of cheap stick on the wall plastic holder. Works pretty well.

This was our solution and works out perfect for kids and grandkids. Solid wood mount. Out of the way in an already cramped space. Just leave a few sheets hanging down for the little ones.Click image for larger version

We just purchased a toilet paper stand that holds a few extra rolls at Walmart for about $7 that we sit next to the toilet once we get to the campsite. This way it can be easily moved to a convenient place for whom ever is using the facilities.

I put ours inside the cabinet door under the sink. Had to cut off the screws so they didn't pentetrate outside the cabinet door, but it's a perfect place for us. Plus, its out of the way and not an eyesore.

Me too! Sick minds think alike!
Actually our last TT, a Wilderness had the holder in the sink/vanity cabinet door.
And really, we don't use our toilet for "solid waste". So we don't use much toilet paper and NONE EVER goes down the toilet. We always use the campground facility toilets as much as possible.
The original post didn't mention the trailer model. So I can't recommend a location.
It's funny, we bought a 2016 26VFKS. And when delivered they had not attached the toilet paper roll holder nor the bathroom towel rack. SO I guess they figure that is personal preference?

I agree with "Unhandy"! Looks like Most FR3 have a Base cab Door Very close to the "Knee Area" of the person needing the Paper,thus the "Back Side of the Door" mounting area! Youroo!!
