Hello,



Nicola wants towel holders in the bathroom of our VF35CK. I loathe drilling/screwing holes, so looking for ideas where you mounted your towel holders and if the wall studs are wood or aluminum (so I know what screws to use). Any idea's most welcome and thanks!

Blind wall anchors work fine. No need for a wall stud. Big box stores carry them in the assorted hardware aisle

Yep that's what I used and so far no problem. Three towel racks, one TP holder, one wash cloth ring, a robe hook and a toothbrush/cup holder. I still think CR should do them at the factory!

If you really don't want to drill holes, 3M makes some heavy duty double-stick tape.

I used it tomounttwo small squares of metal on my Jeep Wrangler fiberglass top to mount lights. Nearly 5 years later, all is well. Neither rain, nor snow... Sorry about that. Retired rural mail carrier here..

We use two "over the door" hooks for our towels. Works great and allows them dry and accessiable when we get out of the shower.

I do not like drilling holes in anything I own especially the outside of my trailer. Having said that I have to think about the reason why I feel that way and I can't come up with a good answer unless it's so the it will be like new for the next owner.
My brother sums it up best, it's yours and you can do anything to it you want to make it as personal as possible. I guess it's sort of like plastic covers on a couch or saving your crystal for that "special occasion".
Hey, everyday is a "special occasion" and I'm going to start living it that way. Drill on!

I will put holes where I want to hang what I want . When I get done with Our camper I think I made it that more user friendly. I bought the tp holder, robe hook, towel rack and round towel holder at wally's and they match our interior perfectally.

Perhaps I'm a bit simplistic, but I bought one of those suction-cup towel bars from Wallyworld and mounted it on the glass shower door. Seems to work OK for me. Just need to re-stick it every now and then.

We bought ours at Wally World too. It came with a towel bar, hook, ring & tp holder, with the plastic anchors & screws. Unless your having sport sex or something, they hold up well. Not that I am, I'm just saying..................

3M's Command self stick products come in a large selection of hooks & holders. They hold very well & are made to remove without damaging the wall surface. I broke a hook that had been in place for 3 years, pulled on the tab to remove it & you couldn't tell where it had been on the wall. Great product.
