Cool power awning

We are new to tt camping and we are wondering if we can use the awning as a clothes line? the popup awning had poles and staked to the ground, it worked great for drying towels. This awning has the air supports. Can I hang towels on this or is there something else I can do? Alot of campgrounds are not allowing clothes lines on trees anymore!! What to do? Happy camping!!

You could probably hang a few clothes on it, but if your awning has the wind sensor, and rolls itself automatically in windy situations, you could do a lot of damage when it rolls up the towels and clothes. Maybe you get get one of the bumper mount clothes dryers and make that work. I have seen them on Camping World's web site.

If the CGs you go to have a problem with clothes lines on trees, they will probably have the same problem with clothes hanging from your awning.

We use clothes lines on the trees. The state parks around here do not have a problem with it.

We also hang clothes to dry in the shower area so there's another thought for you.

I saw a trailer with this last year (like what Windrider mentioned). My DW liked it...

We have the auto awning as well so we got a "smart dryer" that hooks to the ladder it works really well, you can actually slide it closed with things hanging on it and it will hold them from falling or blowing off.

We use this super low-tech version. We can move it into and out of the sun as needed. And it folds up and out of the way when traveling. I think it was less than $10 at Wally World.
