drying rack for 2007 Safari 25'

Does anyone have a suggestion for a bumper mounted clothes drying rack suitable for a 25' safari?

I made one using 3/4" square aluminum tubing. It has three lines for hanging cloths. Takes less than 5 minutes to install or remove and it stores in the rear bumper compartment. One medium size wash load fits tightly.
I will take pictures in the morning and post it. (if I forget PM me)

I made this bumper mounted rack that stores inside the bumper storage along with all of the sewer connection items. It takes less than 5 minutes to mount or dismount and store it.

The mounting sleeves are attached to the frame using existing 1/2" holes. I used single 7/16" clevis pin with a few washers to make the length correct. There is a small angle bracket mounted on the back side of each sleeve beneath the frame that acts as a stop so that the rear bumper does not get damaged when the sleeve pivots on this single pin. I also use a bungee to dampen the sleeves' movement in gusting wind.

The top member is cut to a length so that it just barely fits into the bumper compartment. The top member has a corner bracket attached inside at each end. The clothes lines are mounted to 3 hook bolts on each side member. The clothes lines are looped at each end so that their length is just shorter than the actual opening. (I lifted it so you could see how its made) The top member normally sets inside of the side members in compression, kept in place by gravity and tension of the clothes lines. The side members are cut just long enough so the top line is as high as DW can reach.

Hope this helps!
