Nano Tape

I wish I could tell You how long it stays attached to the wall. We’ve been using it for two months and everything has stayed in place. You can pull things back of the wall. In fact, you can remove the tape, wash it off and use it again. I like it better than command strips.

I have an Aframe and have put up a rod from wall to wall for hanging things on, including a roll of paper towels. It's great to hang damp towels on to dry, clothes on hangers and you can put a shower curtain or window panels on it for privacy. You do need to be a little taller to reach the paper towels, but you could lower the roll by putting it on a wire or something similar
Hope this helps!

There aren't cabinets on the walls to indicate where wall studs would be (or to mount to the underside) and there is precious little counter space to sit this on top of. I also only have one cabinet drawer under the sink area that would put the roll right in the way of traffic so that option is out.

I may look at some of the 3M VHB tape to mount it to the wall but that stuff isn't cheap and I'm concerned it will just pull off the wall covering. I may also design something I can 3D print that can be riveted to exiting metal (Wall Hinges or window trim). Since everything is Aluminum, Rare Earth magnets are out as well.


I'll figure out a solution eventually! I'll be in the camper tonight to work on my storage and organization scheme anyway to we'll see what I come up with. I just thought someone would have come up with a solution already so I didn't have to tax my tiny brain!
We have a 12DDST a frame trailer. We actually mounted two paper towel holders. One inside right by the window, so when we close it it just hangs there. The 2nd one is on the door that opens up outside ,where you have under storage, right by the bbq hookup. Husband had no issues drilling into the a frame, no special screws.

As for storage, bins work the best for larger items to go under the bed, also helps with organization. We have one bin with all cooking and one bin with all eatery items. We also took out the microwave and built a pull out shelf inside, put baskets in there that's where we keep coffee things along with cooking oils. Under the one bench, again bins that had jackets and blankets. Good luck with your a frame, they are wonderful

I purchased an inexpensive one off of amazon and mounted it with Pop rivets and not once has the roll fell off. And I take my trailer down some questionable roads.

Those are great ideas! Thanks.

Think outside of the box: mount it vertical instead of horizontal

Mount it underneath your cabinets with some small wood screws or short machines screws with nuts.

You can get some industrial velcro at home depot that holds 50Lbs. That might be an option for youi.

I put mine in the wood of the cabinet in the small space above the microwave. Wood screws...I guarantee you won't strip them like the factory does if you're careful.

This is what I used and it works terrific. I placed it next to the sink in a corner so it's handy and out of the way.
