Towel drying

What do you all use for towel drying racks? We have one hook on our door but there are two of us. Some of the over-the-door racks I've seen are so narrow that towels would have to be folded in half to fit...and then wouldn't really dry. Do you have something that you use outside? Would love to see pictures.

We have a collapsible folding rack we use to dry pool towels. Folds up nice. Otherwise you could build a bumper/ladder mount from PVC. Links:

Ahhh you'll get answers!

Maybe FTTurbs will drop by. He has, IIRC, a folding one that hands on the rear ladder.

Or maybe that was ependydad?

This style works awesome and it's huge so you can hold a lot more items than a ladder rack...this pic doesn't show the clothes line pulled through the grommet holes but you get a feel for the setup. (Everything stores inside the rear bumper for travel)
I found online through a search and bought from the lowest vendor ( think I paid $50)

Can also use the bike rack, mine has 4 arms. Also have a short shower rod that has the twist motion to tighten. Got it at Lowes for $7. Good luck

Here's what we do, inside we have a shower rod in the tub. If towels are inside due to rain, we hang them there, on hangers, and turn the exhaust fan on. I'll rotate the hangers occasionally to dry both sides.

Preferably we hang them outside on my contraption I call the dinosaur tail. Its made of a piece of wood, tent rods, screw eyes and string. I intended on refining the design, but....

We have a Rockwood UltraLite. We have an inside garden shower, a ladder and bumper on the back. I also have a husband that doesn't like 'extra stuff' which is a bigger challenge than wet towels. :-)

The long bar is a 1 x 4 x 8' pc of poplar and it hooks on top of the left ladder tube and under the right tube. Slots are for hangers.

We just use adjustable curtain rods in the shower. Simple, cheap and easy.

Kris10may, I put the twist rod in bathroom or shower, that's the real value of it and I only need enough room between two supports. Hope this helped

Yes...helped a great deal. I really think that is the simplest and makes the most sense. Will be looking for a bar soon.
