I have discovered a fabulous hook, adheres like magic without any screws etc. Will work for anyone who has fiberglass inside of their trailer. (needs a smooth shiny surface to adhere) It is strong enough to hold a bag with several books, a few jackets, etc. and did not budge even after transit. www.umbra.com "cling hooks"

I lucked out the other day and found a 16 piece set of "Amazing Instahooks" in a thrift store. Never been opened. These are pretty cool. You press it to the wall and flip the hook from top to bottom and this draws the suction cup out from the wall creating the suction pressure and snapping the hook down. They work GREAT. Two different sizes in the package I got for like 2 bucks!

When the temp fluctuates they will drop off. We have gone over to the 3M sticky tape hooks. So far so good.
They have held up my shower radio on ceramic tile at home for over a year now.

We still use the suction ones when we camp but have to clean them off and re suck them once in a while.

I use this type for on the outside of the trailer. They are great for hanging coats, hats, towels, or whatever on.

I found these in my local hardware store

http://www.wolfcraft.de/jcatalog_generated...88_product.html

My U-Haul is double walled so I can use them inside and outside. Though my outside is oxidized a bit so they normally do not stay on very long on the outside.

I keep a small tube of Vaseline lip balm handy to put just a thin film on the cup to help it stick longer.

Ha! I never even thought of using them on the OUTSIDE of the egg!
Thanks for the wakeup call.
