Drying bath towels inside

Does anyone have a good tip on how/where to dry multiple bath towels inside an RV without a dryer. I'd prefer to not have a clothesline.

Use every towel holder you have. Hang them over the shower door. Without a cloths line there's not a lot of options.

We use over the door hooks hung on just about every door. I think I might actually end up screwing them down eventually.

Other than that, we also hung a towel rack off of our master bedroom door:


rattleNsmoke is also right - we hang them on the shower door opening, too.

ependydad we have had one of those bumper clothes lines for years. We LOVE it. Works fantastic. Perfect for beach towels etc.

For inside we have a towel rack in the bathroom, and over the shower door and if necessary the door via a over the door hook.

We use traditional towel bars and when hooked up to shore power we use a similar heated towel rack as shown below......

I use those 3M hooks that you can remove without damage to woodwork and put them on the walls and cabinets where towels hanging does not interfere. Sometimes drying towels out on bumper rack isn't an option.

We hang them over the shower doors and turn the exhaust fan on high. Then we close the bathroom door, there's enough of a gap at the bottom to create a high speed airflow and it dries the towels in short order. Found this totally by accident.....

Inside Drying

I installed an expanding 29" shower curtain rod above the bath tub / shower enclosure... When comping and not using the shower, I install the rod and drape wet towels over it.. also works great for hanging wet clothing on a hanger / rod so it can drip into tub and dry with bathroom vent open / heat on.. easily removes for traveling..

I bought the old fashioned wooden racks that fold flat. DH cut the rods down to size to fit the shower interior. It folds flat when not in use but when needed it holds a lot of towels. What is nice about it is that it is easy to set outside.

We use a cloths bar that you can use on the back of your car to hang cloths. We put one across the back over our bed to dry our towels. It's out of the way by time its bed time towels are dry. Bob

X2. We use a curtain rod that spans the width of the shower enclosure and just lay it on the top of it. When dry, everything is put away.

Ditto. But, I've found a over-the-door towel bar that has narrow clamps that will actually fit just right over the shower wall.

And, I just added that heated towel bar/stand to my Amazon wish list!

....for here at HOME!

Tension rod across the middle of shower shower. I don't even take it down...when I have some laundry I hang coat hangers on it. Put towel rack upside down under a shelf or cupboard
