As motor-homers, we have tried many tricks to get our stuff dry, especially during New Zealand winter months.
We fitted enameled scissor-type dry-racks to the outside. These lasted for around 8 years. By then the NZ sun had removed some enamel and the humidity turned the racks into wrecks. Apart from that, the NZ Motor-Caravan Association rules state that NO outside racks are allowed anyway. So I removed the left-overs from the bus and repaired the paint job.
This left us back in square one. But not for long. I stumbled upon an amazing dry-rack. It comes with suction cups to hold it to the wall. Now, I was very skeptical about that concept… until I had it for around 9 months and it was still sitting in the same place I put it up originally.
I was amazed to say the least. It is octopussed onto the shower/bathroom wall. This poor rack is getting heat and cold and wet and dry and some. Yet it stayed put to this day since September 2016.
It is so compact that when you don’t use it, you almost forget that it exists. It can take a fair load. It is rustproof Plastic/Stainless Steel construction and of course you don’t need to drill holes anywhere to fit it.
What more can you ask for when living in a motor-home? Bu the way, it comes at a price that is negligible for the quality and use you get from it.
Well, there is another item that you can also ask for. See this post on the electric 12v/240v super compact high speed dryer which assists in drying your stuff before hanging on the dry-reack.
This has a twofold benefit. Your washing will dry way faster and it is way lighter on the rack.
