Hi there,

We too had jumpy hangers due to the rough Saskatchewan roads. A fellow Airstreamer gave us the idea of using a partially inflated beach ball. Place the ball between the top of the rod and the ceiling of the closet. Haven't had a hanger fall off since.

I can understand folks that do not have rear bedrooms have no problem with clothes falling to the floor of the closets. That is not a problem with my mid-ship closet, but I don't see how "unbalanced running gear and over-hitching" can be the sole cause of this happening in the closets located at the extreme rear of my 30' AS. Any dips or humps in the road are magnified significantly in the rear of the trailer. I have ordered the hangers AWCHIEF mentioned. Thanks.

They're so clever ~ it's a simple wire hanger with an extra nub that lets you snap them onto the bar so they can't hop off on bumpy roads. We own a half dozen, which came with our '62 GlobeTrotter... but would love to find another dozen or so. I've found no references to them online, so far.
We had the metal, real Airstream versions when I was growing up. I wonder if Dad got them with/for his '66, then kept them for his '72 and '85. I will check to see if he still has them. I recognize them clear as day, though!
