OK, lets try this again..."Is this Tacky?"

Just wondered what everyone thought about this hanging off my rear bumper. I got the idea from another camper I saw at a campground. I made it for my previous camper and switched it to my Jayco. Just slides on or off for easy storage. It's a towel drying rack.Click image for larger version

It beats running a rope from tree to tree or across your awning supports to hang up wet things to dry.

When I die, I want to go peacefully like my grandfather did–in his sleep. Not yelling and screaming like the passengers in his car.

Not tacky at all. Looks good. You will see many made similar that attach there or on the ladder. We have a smaller one that comes in handy at times.

I like it, might even copy it. As far as "tacky" goes I don't think there's an issue. Almost everyone who sees it thinks "I might do that too". And as travelers, MOST of us are more functional and comfort oriented. I'm sure there are those who are appearance conscious. The Grand Canyon (just for an example) is the same if you spent the night in an expensive MH or a tent.

Many CG's will not let you string lines that attach to trees but have no problem as long as it is on the camper so everyone's happy.

Just curious what everyone thought as I had a guy stop and say "a lot of campgrounds where we stay wouldn't allow that". I didn't ask him what campgrounds, and he was not rude at all. He complemented me on what a nice looking trailer I had.

... first all agreeing with Norty1, and we have never stayed at a CG, public or private, that wouldn't allow that. If they did, I would consider hanging a pair of undies on the antenna.

It's only tacky if you won't tell me what you used for bumper mounts
