For a towel rack, we found a rack that hooks over the door. It holds three full size towels and wash cloths. I re-bent the hooks so they fit the depth of the door. Double sided tape keeps it from moving around. The toilet paper holder is a normal holder that screws into the wall except I used double side tape cut to size to stick the fixture onto the wall next to the toilet.

Both of these solutions were first thought to be temporary, but since they have worked for almost two years without problem, I left them. I thought hot days might loosen the double sided tape but it has lasted through 95 - 105 degree temperatures for a week or two in a closed up trailer.

3M double sided tape is used extensively in the auto industry to secure body trim parts on vehicles ~ things like plastic/chrome wheel well mouldings, mfg emblems, chrome covers for door handles/mirrors, and elsewhere...both by the factories, dealerships and 'after market' industry. It will survive the elements quite well.

The only trick with double sided tape is how to get the backing off!

I can remember the days of the white foam double sided tape. NOT good. Thanks to everyone that has replied in this thread, it is appreciated. I don't know if the dealership doesn't want to sell us a new TT or what but, I last spoke to them on Friday they took some information and said they would call me back. Well end of business day Tuesday and not a word. Perhaps another dealer wants my business ? Thanks again, Dave

The over the door towel rack that N&K describe, sounds exactly like the one I have ( in picture in my above post ). I thought about using it over the door, but then decided I'd rather have it on the wall itself in the bathroom, so I did the mod I described.

For any sticky residue, a product called Goo Gone does an excellent job.

It can be found a most box stores like Walmart, farm & home stores and places like Home Depot, grocery stores, etc.

CONGRATULATIONS!!

Be sure to check everything out when doing the walk thru when you pickup the unit. And ask questions too.

Lolead,

Hope your new trailer plays nice. There are a lot of things to like about it. I look forward to seeing what kinds of things you do to it to make your own, and I'd be happy to compare notes and share opinions with you about the model you bought.

Norm

Thanks N&K, Hope I don't run members here crazy with my newby questions. We looked at a LOT of brands and trailers. We are coming from a Jayco and we liked that brand but the only model that suited us was TOO big and too much money for us. I have gone back and forth on the laminate construction. I have read of so many horror stories of delamination and what we want is a trailer that should, with proper maintainance, stay with us for the long term. At my age I can't afford to be a test subject. Also hoping that buying with a slide out was a wise decision. Time will tell. Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome I have received here. The only thing I know much about is automotive collision repair and automotive painting. Might know a little about building hot rods and custom cars but that is the extent of my knowledge, so if you need a little advice, please ask. I do have LOTS of opinions !!!LOL!!
