Bumper Mount Clothes Line

Bumper Mount Clothes Line. This will work on trailers and RV's with sewer hose bumpers.

I have seen a couple Scamps and other eggs using this idea (home made) at the Quartzsite Arizona gathering.
We used someone else's idea from this forum and attached an IKEA towel rack to the inside of our Scamps' door, plus we have a very small clothes-line reel that we use both indoors and out.

Some campgrounds don't allow putting up a clothes line or attaching anything to trees so this bumper mount is a good idea.

There was a fellow named "Stretcher" or something such at the Copake NY rally who had one of these made of EMT conduit and elbows on his Casita. All removable except the sockets on the bumper.

As long as you have one, we've always used the awning arms. In a pinch we add a rope between the 2.

"Stretcher" was Dave who has a Scamp 5th wheel. I didn't see the clothesline on whoever had the Casita so can't say who it was.

I made one for my Scamp 5er that attaches to the back bumper. I used 1-1/4" PVC and glued the right angle peices on the side pieces. That way I'm able to remove the cross member and find that three peices of PVC stow very ezasily in the back of my truck. I do run a short line from one corner behind the spare tire and tie it to the other corner. This helps if you have more than one towel hanging on the line.

Thanks Bob. Faulty memory here. Anyway, easy rack to fabricate (or buy from Chuck).

We've done something similar to Kevin. Instead of welding pipe to hold the plastic pipe we use a c clamp on each frame member "Ting" into the bumper to hold the plastic pipe. We store our plastic pipe in a plastic fence post attached to the bumper.

our clothesline is a little different than those shown. we used ABS pipe and made a post which fits into the open end of the bike rack post which extends up from the bumper. into it, we attach, by means of non-threaded ABS connectors, a frame which is a rectangular shape, woven with clothesline wire thru drilled hole, 5 rows. at the outside corners, we screw in 2 support posts into threaded ABS connectors. it comes completely apart for travel and puts together in seconds. it is an excellent drying rack and we have had tons of usage of it. it is especially useful for towels, as it is about equal in height to the bottom of our back window, allowing towels to dry in the breeze easily.

A camping friend made one for me that is hitched mounted but it costs $90.00 in materials. Their are many handy people on this site who can make their own and many who can't.

I did something similar to Kevin but in PVC. If you don't go overboard on length it's pretty sturdy. I have 3 antenna mounts threaded in the back bumper (2 shown) (short bolts to avoid the slinky in there) which get used for a number of other add-ons.
