We have never (yet) been out for over 3 weeks, so no problem. Beach locations have been the issue with additional towels. On our recent visit to Port A Texas, we learned this from a neighbor.....those plastic clips that hold table cloths on picnic tables (at least the ones we had) work perfectly holding a towel draped over the awning support.

Awning clothesline

I use a bungee cord in the same place.

Many RV parks allow racks only on the rear of the units. I made up a simple rig using available aluminum angle and line to bolt on the back bumper compartment of my '89. It had just 4 bolts and disassembled and stored in the bumper

If electric hookup is available, use the line in the bathroom along with an inexpensive umbrella type hanger, close the shower door, open the vent, and turn on our small ceramic space heater (on a step-stool to keep it away from moisture). Works like a charm!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks for all your ideas. I really appreciate them! Great suggestions & I got a few laughs too. I think I can do a few of these things combined. Funny, the first thing I thought when reading the quick dry towel suggestions was, I'm in but I bet my husband will complain about it.

i really like the turkish towels from Cacala on Amazon

They are pricy but have worked great for us in the 3years we have used them

They can be used as light coverups too

I get the largest ones

the are high quality woven cotton, thin, and dry very quickly. they store in a very small space

i like them so much that i am replacing our home towels

An extending rod for hanging clothing in your car works well strung across, with each end in a lower cabinet...I hang damp things on hangers this way when I do laundry, and the rod takes up little storage space.

Drying Towels

I hang towels inside my truck with windows slightly cracked open. If it is hot out they usually dry in a very short time. They always dry overnight.

ScrubbaBag

Mikeyman, I just watched video on ScrubbaBag and ordered one. We had Washer/Dryer in our big fifth wheel and that's the only thing I miss. I hate laundromats, and often wash out a few items in a pan if that's all I really need. This will be great, especially in Mexico where we hope to spend the winter.

Where outdoor drying is permitted and there's a handy tree, we use this one:

It's a bit on the cheap side, but provided the little plastic bits don't fall off, it works better than hanging up damp towels in the bathroom, and it is pretty discrete. We also carry some nylon cord and clothespins for a clothesline.

There are 5 of us and I just don't feel like we have room for big fluffy towels.

We like these:

Aren't those the scratchy kind? I remember the first Camp towels I bought, yellow ones, it was like sanding a few layers off of my skin, hated it.

We'll Chris is happy with it now, he drys off much quicker, and he really digs the part where sand never sticks to the towel. Because REI has so many towels I figured I'd better show you exactly which one.

I travel for work full time. Been past the house once for a few hours since March.

Towels, especially, should be microfiber. I found a set at West Marine that are outstanding.

Artificial fiber underwear and socks.

Ripstop cotton trousers and similar shirts.

All dry easily.

Most campgrounds have laundry facilities as do truck stops.
