Lightbulb secret towel bar?

Where o where would I find the secret towel bar in the shower?
Also, we don't use the shower much (never) so wonder if anyone modified the space and into what?
Thank you!

You know I have noticed that little bar coming out right under the water faucett in my tub (it extends out like an antenia), I have always wondered what it was for. I bet that is the "secret" towel bar. (smiling)

We too do not use the shower, for showers, often. We do use it for storage of items that we need everyday but are too bulky for the storage compartments. I have been considering building a removable rack to use in the shower to better utilize the storage space.
Anyone who prurient interests have roamed to the subject of hygiene; I assure you we do shower but prefer the roomier stalls provided at the wonderful state parks we frequent for camping. The last use of our shower was at a private campground who's bathhouse was so filthy the bugs would not even go inside.

I can't remember the last time that I used a campground shower. Even when I had the 22' with the wet bath, the shower in the Airstream is so much more convenient, and in my opinion, hygenic, that I prefer to not use a public facility.

I have friends who have never cooked a meal in their trailers and other friends who have never used the toilet in the trailer at all. This baffles me. That is why I tow that big thing behind me. I spent considerable portions of my life living in barracks and eating in mess halls. Nowdays, I prefer my privacy and the knowledge that I can totally control the cleanliness of my facilities.

When we have to stay in hotels I am beginning to hate it. My wife and friends think I'm a little compulsive. But I like my germs... I know where they came from... Don't like climbing into a bed and wondering about the last time the comforter was washed.

That little towel bar thing is really cool! So many neat little features built into Airstreams.

My secret towel bar extends too!

I had found the secret towel bar in my 86 MH a few years back - in the top of the shower door track. However this weekend I discovered that it extends too when you pull on the end of it after it is out of the track.

There is a shiny chrome ring, about 1" in diameter, attached to the wall above the sink in the bathroom of the 1966 Globetrotter. I haven't figured out what it is for. Anyone have an idea?
