Funny...Moosetags has never had a hanger fall off in 140,000 miles, whereas AWCHIEF in the very next post had all but one brand fall off over the years. And based on their past posts, I respect both. jon

Could it be that Moosetags never had anything hanging on them whereas we all know how neat an AF Chief is, everything is on a hanger.

Our Award had a hinged piece of 1x2 wood that rotated down over the hanger rod to stop the hangers from jumping off. Worked quite well as whenever we left it rotated up we lost clothes hangers.

Interestingly we have never had hangers jump off in our AS's. I sometimes curse the corrugated cover on the hangar rod since I can't easily push clothes over to one side while hanging fresh clothes

I thought the bumpy/ridged/textured sleeve over the bar was to help keep the clothes hangers from jumping off.

We use plastic hangers, nothing ever falls off , I only drive at 63 mph, most of my clothes are in the closet next to the bed, mostly T- shirts, because I'm fat.

The Other Brand has a Locking Bar

Paul&Gina beat me to it....my Avion has a spring loaded wooded bar that comes down and locks the hangers onto the big diameter wooden rod. So the hangers won't come off the rod.

I have had a few clothes come off the hangers, but it was mainly heavy things like coats that I hadn't zipped up and had gone down a bumpy road.

It really is a good design they have...it'd be easy to copy.

My clothes jumped off the rod all the time until I bought strips of Velcro and wrapped it around the first 10 hangers, then the next 10, etc.

Really?

This sounds like a solution waiting for a problem. I have never had anything jump off the rack. If I did I would look into problems with running gear. Tires out of balance? Problems with shocks? Misaligned axles? Driving way too fast? Traveling on really bad roads?

I can't claim the mileage that Mr. Moose has but I have been over 35K now and have never, never, never had a hangar jump off the rod. Something funny here.

After you have a problem with the hangers falling off, try turning the head of your hangers in the other direction so the open side is facing you. The curved wall of your Airstream will help hold the hangers on the closet pole.

Hangars in Airstream Closets

Haven't ever had clothes fall off during travel. We use a large clear surgical plastic (slit along the back to pop over the rod) (Home Depot/Lowes). Hangars can be accessed easily and can slide back and forth. I tend to use whatever type of hangar (metal hangars) that allows the most in the smallest area. I like the 4-5 pants-on-hangars. I also like to use hangars I get when buying clothes. Sometimes the hanging "shoe/purse" works in certain closets, depending on where you have more space.
In my experience, I've tried several options before choosing the best way for our Airstream.
Hope this gives you some helpful thoughts.

I guess all trailers don't have this bumpy cover on the bar:

We have never had clothes fall off. We don't hang them backwards. We use a random hodge-podge of hangers- plastic ones bought from Walmart, plastic or wooden ones that come with clothes when you buy them, and metal ones from the cleaners.
Maybe it's the fact there are so many clothes there that keeps them from falling off the bar?
Maybe that plastic bumpy surface helps?

Maybe the reason our clothes stay on the bar is because they are "wedged in and can't go anywhere?
One side is against the wall. One side is against the door.

Plus wheel and tire balance worthy of the name.

Never lost a hanger. We also have a little painted tin flower pot (on a rubber mat) with plastic flowers that travels on the counter. I think the only time I've had to pick it up off the floor is when we drive on HWY 30 to Astoria OR. That road is like a rollercoaster.
