How do you dry your clothes...

I see that many campgrounds do not allow you to hang a line to dry towels, bathing suits, and the like. How do you handle this? When we used to pop up we always had towels and beach towels, as well as bathing suits, to dry.

Took a 4 foot aluminum square tube and mounted to my rear ladder works well.

I hang them on the awning support poles. Just toss them over it.

Though I am planning on manufacturing a small drying rack/line/contraption that will mount on the bumper.....if it ever makes it to #1 on the ToDo list (keeps getting bumped down)!

I do this. I also have one of these:


It finally broke (even after I fixed it 3 or 4 times) so I'm looking forward to a metal one that collapses width-wise as well as height-wise.

We use one of these depending on what TOWTA is wanting to use. She has used the board more the last 2 yrs, so we don't even take the ladder rack anymore.

Not talent, determination and desire.

We use the same collapsable wooden one as ependydad. I like the fact that I can move it to a sunny spot. Here's some links on the PVC ones for the DIYers,

We have always just run a couple lines across the horse stalls or toy garage,depending on which trailer we take, and leave the ramp or back doors open.

I had no idea some campsites don't allow you to hang a line to dry towels! Now I'm gonna order me a folding drying rack from Amazon

I'm glad for the heads up!

Sorry I don't have a pic, but i use a aluminum folding clothes line. It has 3 legs and the lines pop out to form a triangle. You push the buttons and it folds up and looks like several small pieces of pipe. Works great and comes with some small hooks that push in the ground and hold the legs so it can't tip over. Haven't had anyone complain yet. Came from lowes, $15.00 I think
