Here is a nice little mod that I put in last fall as the bathroom sucks for a place to put shower towels:

Umbra Flip Five Wall Hook, Metal Nickel & Reviews | Wayfair


It fits nicely above the picture in the bathroom and is stealth when not in use. better than anything else I have found and it is neatly concealed.

I just talked with the factory and there is no pre wire in the Legacy in the handle to do this modification. It would be a big job.

Even though my Legacy hasn't come in yet, I already ordered 2 light kits!

I got rid of that picture day one, replaced with a mirror just to cover the area and installed brushed nickel towel racks. That area just proves RV decorators/designers never used an RV before.

Thanks, you just saved me an hour of looking for wires.

I like the shower hook and we have two little ones so we are always looking to hang multiple towels. I think I will have to pick one of these up.

You hung it above the picture?

Too bad about the handle not being prewired! Guess I'll have to send my 2 light kits back.

Yes I did. Looks cool and blends well. Looks like wall art

Looks like a pain to install, however I am intrigued now and will put that on my rainy day project list and see what I can come up with.

I wonder if you could piggy back on the outside light wiring and fish a wire in the wall from the light down to the handle? Anyone attempt that?
