TP holder, Columbus 320RS

On the list of 100 most important questions about the 320RS, this one probably ranks no higher than 101, but here we are.

We've had our Columbus 320RS for about a year now (including spending this past winter living in it in the Southwest) and have yet to figure out the best place to mount the toilet paper holder.

No place seems convenient and out of the way at the same time. So we've come up with this possibility: attaching it to the inside of the main door of the vanity. It's out of the way and convenient ... we think.

But before we start screwing things into cabinet doors, has anybody mounted the TP holder there? How has it worked out? Anybody have any other ideas for great places to mount it? Up til now, we've just been setting the "active" roll on the seat inside the shower. Somewhat convenient, as long as the shower seat is dry.

We're open to ideas.

Since you can't find a space for the TP holder; how about a free standing unit? This way you can place the holder where it is convenient and you will not have to worry about screws going through the door. Since the door panel may be between 1/4" to 1/2" thick at the most. At least this is the thickness that I work with when I make cabinet doors. The screws will not have much holding ability as you will need at least three to four threads to be able to grip the wood.


Just my very humble opinion.

Don't know how thick your cabinet doors are, but our Sunseeker came withe the TP holder on inside of door under sink. Very convenient and out of the way.

Lightbulb Toilet Paper Holder Position

We have a storage cabinet above the toilet. We mounted the toilet paper holder on the outside of that cabinet --- at the bottom of the cabinet facing downward to the toilet. We skewed it to the left not in the middle. All you need to do, is reach above your head --- and there it is ! (P.S. Just make sure that the roll is fairly new when you start to drive --- otherwise if there is only a little paper left on the roll, it sometimes can unroll when you are moving. I sometimes put a piece of tape to stop it from unrolling.)

We had the same problem and are using the free standing unit as suggested above. Tho, not perfect, it works, don't have to put holes in wood, or turn to awkward positions to "get" the paper off the roll. It fits nicely in corner at edge of sink cabinet. We got ours at Walmart!

We found this paper holder at a RV wholesale warehouse in Elkhart,IN last year. It fit great on the front of the door under the sink and has the cover (same finish as the other hardware) which keeps the paper from unrolling and water from getting on the paper while drying off. It was loose in a big box and had no name on it. Oh, and it was the only one they had BUT someone has to make it. Good luck with your search.

We have used one close to this for 2 years and like it. It is a stand alone type. Hope it helps. We are in the 320RS. DELTA 138293 Pedestal Toilet Paper Holder, Satin Nickel https://www.amazon.com/dp/B006J1T79O..._JqSMvbY85GNQG
