Towel Rack

Need to put a towel rack in the bathroom - but I am anxious about putting screws in the walls. I have the aluminum studs so "finding a stud" like you do in a home is not an option. What about the interior walls vs. exterior walls? Screw length, etc.? Any comments appreciated!

We just hung an over-the-door rack on both sides of the bathroom door.......1 for the bathroom towels, and 1 for the kitchen towels and hot mats.......works great.

We did the same thing.

I went to Home Depot, in the closet solutions and storage section they have Closet Maid shelving, I bought the 12" shelving and the option for a clothes hanger rod, they have all sorts of options and mounting solutions, I hung two shelves above the toilet and the clothes hanger rod on the bottom shelf, I use the shelving to store all the clean towells, and any moist towell I can hang on the clothes hanger rod. Typically the racks have a lip that hangs down on the front, it provides strength for the span of the shelving, I mounted it upside down (lip up) and it keeps anything from slipping off the shelving, works great, provides storage and a towell rack for drying

x5 Have used over-the-door towell racks from the beginning. I also have a free-standing folding towell rack that we use outside or inside.

Same .....


We have "trailer towels" that we leave in the unit all the time.

We put individual clean/dry towels in small "spacebags" (vacuum pack/seal) and have them hanging packaged from the 3M adhesive hooks on the bathroom wall to save room. Then we have an over the door rack to hang the towels we are currently using or wet stuff that we don't put outside on the retractable clothes line.

We can store 5 bath towels, 5 hand towels and 3 beach towels on the inside bathroom wall, without using up any closet/shelf space (which is a godsend space saver in a 19' TT.

The towels take up a lot less space when they are vacuum packed, and will stay clean/dry/fresh indefinately in the bags.

Probably not the "prettiest" solution .... but we rarely get guest stopping by and asking to inspect our trailer bathroom ;-)
