Custom clothes hooks for camper

Always a problem with wet hunting clothes; where to dry them in a camper? The shower stall works for 1 person but 3 or 4 peoples wet stuff is a problem.Just not enough wall space for hooks ,so I made some out of scrap wood. Our camper has 2 bumpouts,one living room and one bedroom so the large moulding headrail has a gap behind it to make this work. I like the pegs better for thick bulky jackets and pants rather than hooks. I made 10 of them and they are movable

Re: Custom clothes hooks for camper

also thinking of a few with glove size pegs or maybe just a short length of string with 2 clothes pins to hang gloves

Re: Custom clothes hooks for camper

That is a GREAT idea. BUT be warned, wet clothes touching your wood molding is not wise unless it's a polyurethane finish. I would do a test run..Just my 2 cents.

Re: Custom clothes hooks for camper

chances are the finish is sprayed laquer. wouldn't hurt to brush a lite coat of poly on the headrail. we have a bag of old towels for floor mats to catch the drips and wet boots

I like it!!! We built a portable one out of PVC. It fits into a window blind box.

Re: Custom clothes hooks for camper

We also built a freestanding rack with upside down "T" for legs,1x4 for crossmember,use 1/4-20 bolts with washers and wingnuts to hold it together.This way it can be knocked down to store under the camper when not in use. Then put hooks on both sides of the 6' long crossmember. Strong enough to hold a pack on each leg,clothes and gun/bow. It sits under the awning of the camper but in the rain the wind blows under the awning and stuff gets wetter. That how this hanger for inside came about. Just went thru giga bites of pics but not one of the rack,can't believe that

Re: Custom clothes hooks for camper



Finally got some pics of the clothes rack. since we hunt out of a camper,the rack is on the deck under the awning. Keeps the food odors etc.out of the clothes. Also helps dry out wet stuff and keeps the clutter out of the camper.
The cross member is attached with 2 lag/machine screw bolts on each end. I used bolts for hangers,you can use hooks. This one is 6' long and holds 3 peoples stuff. When we leave it comes apart and gets stored under the camper.
By the way, the camper awning is only 8' out so we extended it with a 4'x 20' wide "woodpile" tarp.makes a big difference in stuff getting wet
