I'm wondering why the 3M Command doesn't work? That's what I used ( 3 lb. hooks ) and they are still secure.

My door has rat fur on it. There is a small handle under the window, looks like a drawer pull. It is screwed into the core of the door. It's off-center and a little rusty, will be taking it off and probably adding a shoe organizer as others have suggested for sunscreen, etc.

If it was something light, you could use Goop or fabric hot glue to attach it to the rat fur. If you don't have covering, some type of gap-filling adhesive would probably work.

Kevin using curtain hooks is also an easy way to hang light items on rat fur.

Forgot about that Carol, thanks. We used to use T-pins pushed in at a downward angle on the fabric wall covering at work, held calendars and other light items.

Your pic looks like your door is FG???

Mine is like vinyl (or something). Moisture seems to loosen the hold.
Admittedly I tried it one time. Maybe that strip was faulty;-)

Should stick to any smooth surface. And, I've got several 3M Command Strip hooks inside the shower ( for towels, squeegee, etc ) so moisture isn't an issue.
All I can say, is read the instructions, particularly for removal.

Have you considered having the door recovered?

The older trailers had a sort of vinyl inside covering. Yes there is some wood in there. But be careful if you drill holes to mount anything you don't go through.

I mark the drill bit with a bit of masking tape at the depth I want to stop at.

You can of course rivet hooks or hangers to the door, it's what the curtain rod hooks are held on with on my scamp.

I would avoid having much additional weight on the door going down the road. My concern is the extra weight would be magnified going over bumps and either pull out fasteners or put too much strain on the hinges.

Those pouches for small items sound like they would be easy to just un-hook and roll up to stow while traveling.

Someplace on the forum I saw pictures of small narrow baskets that someone hung from the fiberglass surface with those suction cup hooks for window sun catchers. Don't think the suction cups would work but the small baskets might work with hooks fastened to the door. Again easy to remove and stow for travel so the door and hooks don't take the pounding of going down the road.

For every person that talks about hanging stuff from Rat Fur or Ensolite walls we have another posting asking about how to glue it back up. The walls are NOT like your home and the glue is only to hold the covering up.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. YMMV

How did you fasten the trash can to the Escape door?

LOL your right Donna sorry - I mostly hang things like key holders and small photo frames and a small basket that holds my stereo and tv remotes etc - none of them have come away from the wall .... but then again they have only been up for about 5 years or so...

I found lots of options using cubicle clips. They are typically used on the walls of office cubicles...the kind with fabric on them.
Google:
cubicle clips
and for a wider range of options Google
Fellows Plastic partitions accessories.

It's kinda funny that I haven't taken any photos of my Scamp door even though I decorate it to go with my interior theme each time I change it. Mostly, I just have the original short, shirred curtain in the window. Then I'll hang a novelty item that shows from the outside (when the door is closed) or from the inside. Among the hangings I've had are a tin sign that says "No muddy boots allowed inside", a Native American dream-catcher, a red, white and blue star for the 4th of July, and many more.
