Hi Wallo,

I ran over to family dollar today. I got a tension shower rod pole and a tension cafe rod. Space was 46.5 inches.

I bought both because I wondered if the shower tension rod might hold up towel weight a little better (wet towels)?

Let me know whatcha think friend. The one I had in the basement was too small.

Wendy, the tension rod I use is a small diameter curtain rod, I give it alot of tension and it holds wet towels well. I use the microfiber bath towel which is lighter than a normal bath towel.

The Gilda solution is the one we use when it's not too pleasant outside, it works well.

I have used a long curtain tension rod between my cabinets over the table/bed. The trim molding on the cabinets keep the rod from slipping down.

Those short rods can also be used to hold things back in a fridge. Keeps everything snug so it can't bounce around too.

If you have the rear overhead cabinet you could do a permanent solution as I did.

I cut two 1 inch dowels to size to fit on both sides of the trailer. I painted them white and ran screws from the inside of the cabinets into the dowels.
I mounted them far enough from the windows in case I ever need hanging clothes, the hanger/clothes won't hit the window. This also allowed for me to add little shelves behind the rods. I use the streetside for kitchen towels and the curbside for bath towels.

Here's a couple of pictures.

What a creative idea, Joy! I have the 2 side cabs in my scamper though. Would have preferred the long overhead, but "you gets what you gets" when you buy someone else's ideas in a used trailer. No complaints though!
