Mount Toilet Paper Holder

I guess mounting the Toilet Paper holder does not come standard when buying a new E-Pro 19FBS and I have to do it myself.

I am getting ready to do this, just have a little reservations drilling into my camper walls. Anyone have any advice before I do this?

Thanks;
Dustin

"Wall Anchors" or mount to a more solid surface. The walls are about an 1/8" to 3/16" thick and do not hold screws very well. I was fortunate to be able to mount ours on the side of the sink where I could get the screws into the 1x2" frame of the sink.

I mounted mine to side of sink cabinet and cut little pieces of 1 x 2 and put inside cabinet as a backer for the screws to screw into.

We use a fee-standing toilet paper holder similar to this.

I try to find a stud using a stud finder for at least one side of anything I mount to a wall then use wall anchors on the other side. Cabinet framing works well also.

Pop Rivets might work as well.





We use a free standing one.

You've received good advice about mounting so I'll say something about your comment of the the factory not installing the holder.... the factory doesn't mount these things (TP holder, soap dish, towel rack, etc) as everyone has their own ideas of where they should be placed.

I'd sooner mount them, than stand there thinking... "why the heck did they mount that thing there?"

We keep ours in the cabinet under the sink. Don't need to mount anything.

3m tape

We use a holder that has been mounted using 3M tape. Excellent method. Been in use for over 1 year. I bought the one in the link.

I "saved" ours, & purchased a self-adhesive one at Amazon - works great!

Lots of good suggestions from the forum, as usual. I mounted our toilet paper holder onto the side of the vanity, next to the shower enclosure, using stainless machine screws, flat washers and nuts. It's out-of-the-way, yet easy to reach. The bathroom does not appear overly small; however, there were not an abundance of options for mounting the holder - so this works fine. But back to your original question about drilling into an outside wall. Yes, find a stud if possible. Measure carefully. Highly recommend using a collar on your drill bit to ensure you don't accidentally create the perfect place for an outside sticker or fake vent (sure, ask me how I know) on the exterior of your RV. Then place a long thin nail or similar object into the hole to determine the depth for that location. There is usually some foam insulation in the outside walls, and there could be electric wires, etc. so be gentle and cautious. Now you can decide the best connection method to use, and you'll know what length screw, machine screw, toggle bolt, metal EZ anchor, etc. you can use. In this case, a little shorter may be a little better. I've used all of those fasteners at one point or another, and all have worked well, but I try to choose wisely based upon weight of object being attached and intended utilization. I admit I've never tried rivets, but it sounds like a fantastic idea and I'll definitely give that a try as well. Good luck, and don't forget the National Parks sell some nice stickers in case you can't resist adding exterior decoration to your RV

A little more work, but less space.

I used a recessed holder that went into the vanity. Takes up less space in doorway. Got it at a garage sale for a $1.00.

Hi all! We stained a thin piece of wood to match the cabinetry, cut just larger than the paper holder mounting base, as a backer. We attached it to the inside of the door beneath the sink with glue and screws, being careful to use the right screw length. This keeps the TP roll dry & safe from sink or shower splashes, it's discreet, and looks nice.
