We have a 22, and we keep most kitchen items below the sink. Please post detailed pictures once you finish organizing.

I have already (sadly) winterized and broken camp for the season, removing most items for storage at home. Otherwise I would post pictures.
It mounts with two screws. I used two sheet metal screws, right into the wall. (Ouch!).

Curious whether you put the screws, or at least one of them, into a vertical framing "rib" (I guess they might be called)? I assume that the interior metal paneling's rivets would lead the way to the framing locations . . .

I didn't, I wanted it in a specific place so just screwed it in there. There's not a lot of weight it needs to support so it seems to work fine.

Thanks. You might want to remove all the items when you are on the road. The momentum of objects really increases their weight when bouncing up and down, especially the canisters which stick out a bit thereby creating a weighted lever twisting the base. A static down-load is one thing. Double or triple that load moving down, and you might flex the interior skin.

Ouch indeed. That's not something I would consider myself.

Anyone have any opinions on command adhesive vs industrial velcro? I would like to maybe add a few things to walls, but I don't have the heart to use fasteners.

For stuff like that I use the 3M outdoor mounting tape. For all the other hooks etc I use 3M Command stuff.

If you ever need to move something, does Goof Off, Goo B Gone, or some other remover work without leaving any residue, if you know? The interior of my FC20 is shiny aluminum, so I would almost rather have a screw head with trim ring showing than to deal with cleaning up any adhesive mounting residue unsuccessfully.

Thanks

Cat got your keyboard?

The stock basket was mounted the same way. I don't think it's a problem.

Anyone with a 22 have a nice solution for hanging up wet bathroom towels so they dry out for the next day?

I like to use a nice terrycloth towel, and can get 1 suspended over the clothesline in the shower ok to dry out.

But then the next person has no place to put their towel to dry.

Was considering maybe a freestanding something to set on the shower floor, or maybe an over door rack that sticks out far enough away from the door that the towels will actually dry.

Or I have considered attaching a small loop to the towel corners so that more than 1 can hang from the clothesline.

Anyone, anyone?

We have labored over this issue for almost two years. Our best solution to date is to use microfiber bath towels designed for backpacking. They dry off your body "ok", but more importantly, they dry very quickly on a hook, or slung over the shower door frame. After a couple of days, they can be hand laundered with some Woolite or Dawn in the sink.

Maybe an over the door rack? Something like this:

My 2014 FC20 has a regular towel bar on the left as you step into the shower (shower head is on the right), plus the regular pull-out clothesline. Also the top track of the roll-up shower door is about 4" below the ceiling and is a handy place to drape the shower mat. Your layout may be different?

PS NWG, maybe you want to change your trailer ID under your Avatar to the left?

Edit -- sure enough here is the Sport 22FB [via drop down box menu]:
