We hang them on the back of our chairs under the awning.

Folds up flat against the ladder to save space when not required at campsite.

I found this at HD online. Looks like you could attach it anywhere

We never dry towels in the RV, too much moisture, we ruined a trailer doing that. Hang them outside on a temporary rack or the awning arms.

I use several of the two clip shorts hangers. Fold the cotton or microfiber towel in half longways, more surface area with less space, hung from command hooks in the BR.

We use our clothes dryer mainly or, on a sunny or windy day, an exterior fold up drying rack. We also feel it is important that the towels are not allowed to dry inside the rig as we are very conscious of starting a mold problem!

We hang ours over the top of the glass shower doors and just turn the exhaust fan on in the bathroom.

For my wife and I (a total of 3 towels), we have this on the back of the bedroom door:

https://www.containerstore.com/s/bat...uctId=10015551

And then we use Turkish towels that dry very quickly.

For the kids, we use these IKEA Losjon hooks in the bathroom (screwed to the wall):

Off topic, but I sent you an email from Doug @ LearnToRV.

Agreed, a better mousetrap works for me, too

The towel racks others suggest should work if you have drying space.
I'm an old dog, and new tricks don't come easy, but the Microfiber towels are pretty amazing. I'm totally sold when camping and can't honestly explain why I don't use them at home.

I love the bungee cord over the door rack from the Container Store. At $15.99 I may order one.

Great suggestion from two different posts.

This is somebody else's thread but I'm glad I learned that information from it.

Are these like the ones used to dry cars or the ones the you put around your neck to keep you cool in the summer? They absorb an incredible amount of water.

If they are, my concern is the growth of bacteria on them.

No, they don't. You squeeze out the water, roll them up and store them in the tube they came in, damp. Those are the instructions it came with.

They are described as being resistant. The experience of others is that it's not a problem. I guess I'll find out.

I installed a shower curtain rod about 4"-5" just inside the shower door and approximately the same height as the shower door. We can hang our towels on it to dry and I also added a couple shower curtain hooks so we can hang our scubbies and wash clothes. It doesn't get in the way and our towels get dry.

Yes, they can be stored that way if using for a car, for awhile. I've used these things since they came out. They will grow stuff your don't want to and sink like the Dickens. So....... For human use, they need to be dried, and washed at least every couple uses!

I put this over the dinette:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

We also use microfiber towels. Works okay if we’re not using the dinette (like driving or touring that day). Also use the other suggestions here - over the shower door; hooks and clothespins to the cargo net I have on the over cab area; etc.
