Helpful gadget for camping

I figured since I asked so many questions in my first post, I'd like to offer something in return. We saw this helper in action at a campground and thought it was just great for campers or home BBQs. It's for sale at Wal-Mart for under $14 but may have to be ordered for site-to-store pick-up. I think it's well worth the money. The description and the URL is listed below so that you can see a picture.

The Ozark Trail Kamp Pal Portable Organizer helps make the most out of your outdoor cookouts! It offers you a helping hand with versatile hanging hooks, a paper towel holder, lantern holder, adjustable spice baskets, an adjustable waste bag hoop and more. You can clamp it to a table or stake it in the ground and it includes a durable carry bag for storage and transport,

My BIL bought one of those and they are nice. The only problem is if the wind is blowing they paper towels tend to unroll by themselves. I been thinking about buying one.

I've got one of those from my pop-up days. It is one handy little gizmo that breaks down into a little bag. I give it 2 thumbs up!!

Waitin' for the weekend!

We made one. and put a c clamp on the bottom and fasten it to the picnic table. I put a clothes pin or big rubber band on the paper towels. We liked it so well we made 2 more. We bent shepherds hooks that usually hold garden prettys and added the spice baskets.

Get a two liter soda bottle. Remove the lable. Cut off the top and bottom, leaving a tube about 6" long. Split the tube down one side. Slip this over your paper towel to keep them in check.

Will also keep the towel on the roller while the RV is bouncing down the road. A smaller version can me made for the toilet paper roll.

My daughter gave me one for my birthday a few years ago and we use it every time we camp. Great little gadget.
