The only item mounted in this unit was the TP holder

Does your door swing into the bathroom? Ours swings out.

Shower rods

These are the kind of shower rods that when you twist they get longer/shorter. The shower has a 1" or so wide "shelf" on thee sides. The shower rods sit on that shelf. To keep the rods in position - mostly when moving, lengthen them by twisting so they are held in place snugly.

They just lift up to remove. They are sturdy enough to hold hangers with heavy coats.

Walmart sells the normal length shower rods, but they also sell other sizes, measure your shower stall and get one shorter that expands past that measurement.

Thanks,
I get what your mean now.

Our shower has a smooth wall all the way to the ceiling. But the idea will still work.

I am a real fan of "Command Hooks". Have used them in a number of places.

Looking for a solid surface to mount the TP holder, I finally attached it to the inside of the vanity door. The center panel solid wood and the location is very convenient. For a towel rack I found a five hook over the door unit at Menard's. Looks good and works very well.

If you have a smooth wall to the ceiling, I would glue some support so the rods are resting their weight in that rather then expanding them tightly enough to keep them slipping down with the weight of heavy coats or dripping beach towels. It could look like a trim detail and wouldn't have to be very thick

I am afraid of cracking the fiberglass if the rods were pushing too hard.

Thanks, was thinking the same thing. walls are not meant for that much force I suspect.

Thanks everyone.

I purchased a couple Command Hooks and will try them out this weekend. Our walls in the TT have a textured finish, will that weaken the Command Hooks properties?

Purchase a 4 hook rack for over the door also. Still want to put shelving between the bunks at the back wall.
