Got the same thing in our new camper, got rid of it after the first day out. Bought a stainless steel one at home depot and never looked back.

We have a rather pricey stand up holder at home that TOWTA loves the portability and I detest as it takes two hands to get a towel, one to hold the stupid holder and the other to get the towel. Much prefer the under counter ones with a rod thru' them.

Wife found one at bed bath and beyond that mounts under overhead counter but clicks when you pull it. It can't freewheel or spin. Works for us.

We got one with our Roo, but it was not installed, just laying there. We haven't installed it yet. Wife's not sure if/where she wants it. Also not thrilled with the low quality, as previously mentioned.

Ditto! I busted ours just looking at it. Gone the freestanding route as well.

That cheap POS is the FR Standard. We were asked if we wanted it mounted in ours and we said no.

When my tech was doing the PDI at purchase, he jokingly said... that's not really a paper towel holder, it's just an example to show you where you can mount one. I laughed and thought he was kidding me at the time.

His humor made sense later, the first time I put a roll of paper towels in it, the roll fell out of course. So, I got a real paper towel holder and mounted it where the 'example' towel holder was.

I think they should ALL have a little paper banner on them that says EXAMPLE ONLY.

We took ours down and use a standup stainless steel one. It is a shame that Forest River would put this in their campers.
