Two very minor mods to our Egg Camper

I installed a paper towel holder above the sink and a TP holder in the bath. Not real happy with the TP holder. Too much weight too far out from the wall so the whole thing sags. Reinstalled it vertically but not too happy with that either. I guess we'll wait & see how it goes. At least, installed with hook & loop, there are no holes.

I made a big hole in the wall to install one of these ( Futura Recessed Toilet Paper Holder in Chrome-D2497PC at The Home Depot ). It works very well and didn't intrude too much on the closet space.

the problem with that one is it leaves the paper exposed to water, this one may be better

Yes. There is a vent pipe that must be avoided, but the location is within easy reach of the throne.

I like the idea of the cover on this one. I wonder if that one would fit int he hole that I already made.

Where'd you find this one??

Ron,
It appears to about the same, most tp holders are standard size, if too small you can make the hole bigger, if too big, mount it to top of your hole, any space below could be caulked.
I googled my search and now can not find that one but here is another

We use an empty, plastic coffee can. You can easily move it to wherever it will be out of the way, or handy - whichever is desired for the occasion. It's discrete, rustproof, waterproof, and it makes the first few rolls of TP smell like coffee!

We use an empty large diaper wipes container. You can remove the cardboard center from the toilet paper,install it into the can, then dispense the paper from the center, through the flip-top. It's resealable and dispenses without removing or handling the roll. Works great and is waterproof. We don't drink coffee, but coffee cans may come a little easier to the most older folks unless you've got grandkids(lol) ...

We use one made for inside the house from Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It is essentially two long wires that make up the shaft with a pivoting TP holder at the end on a pedestal. You can store the extra tp on the shaft and put the roll in use on the pivoting end. The base is nice and heavy. When showering, just lift it out and set it outside the bathroom.
