Wendy Lee, I tried it from my Computer and it did work. I then tried the link from my Smartphone, an android and it did not work. I would guess that it has something to do with the apps for smart phones.

I will go onto my computer and make Preparing a 1991 Scamp a recent app and you'll find it under Modifications

I have reported it to the moderators.

The clothes line rule is a general campground rule. Most only allow clotheslines attached to rigs. I think it deals more with looks then safety.

Jim, If you have a bike rack in your receiver, I'm sure that with minimum effort, maybe no effort depending on type, you could convert it into a clothes line.

No bike rack, just an empty receiver, that is what made me think of using what I already have!!

The towels would be hanging pretty low to the ground. ☺

I really like how Honda stores the clothes rack poles with the bumper box. In fact, I love the whole set up and would like to do both to my Scamp. Nice to store a few hardware or tools items, lynx levelers, etc in.

Man, how heavy are your towels? I would have guessed that a 1-1/4 receiver was enough, but I guess some folks just like to be on the safe side....

I can get you some detail pictures this weekend if you want to build your own.
Did you post the directions for making this? I didn't find them. Are you willing to share?

When we have our bikes the rear towel rack doesn't work well with the bike rack, plus we usually lock the bikes up to the rack while we're camped. So we just bought one of these: Laundry and Clothes Drying Rack | Made in USA | Best Drying Rack A little spendy but not that much more than the bumper mounted ones at CW. And, it's solid maple, made is US. Folds up small, not very heavy (you can use it to dry clothes, herbs or noodles at home, although Dave hasn't made noodles in years - maybe he'll get inspired ).

I do not use the receiver for bikes and it came with the trailer so regardless of 2" or 1.25 inch size Ideally there is a drying rack one that will work.

Dave and Kathie,

That's an interesting rack. If you're following campground rules, as many site members know I'm not a rule follower, clothes lines are to be part of the RV.

The rack I made and use is less than $10 and takes a minute to set up and never blows over.

Hi Lesa,
I didn't make it - its welded aluminum and beyond my skillset - but I can post some detailed pictures if you have a welder.

Actually we have rarely seen rules about a clothes line being a part of an RV. But campground rules can be all over the place depending on who owns and operates them. Most places we have camped don't want you using the trees. Other than that we haven't seen any strict reinforcement of clothes drying as long as you are being reasonable. Whatever works for folks.

As an aside we've visited the Rawlings homestead at Cross Creek, read all her books. The homestead is in rural Florida, a part of Florida most tourists do not visit. It's a hoot and worth the trip. It definitely stimulates you to read all the books

I thought she lived in England? Is she a snow bird too? Maybe she's keeping an eye on the Harry Potter site at Universal Studios.
