We never had issues with clothes falling off while traveling either, but my wife recently did the samething that 3'senough mentioned in the post.

We purchased a few tension rods for items in the pantry. My wife had one left over and puts right above the hangers on the rod. The clothes still sway, but they do not fall off.

Measure the width of your closet and get a tension rod so it is long enough. Place the tension rod over the clothes rod after all the clothes are hung.
It has worked for us all last year. Worth a try. If it does not work, you can use it in the pantry or somewhere is you need to keep items stationary.

Our shirt closets are in the front. We turn the hangers backwards. It had worked for us since 2010. Never had an issue with clothes falling.

I had the problem on my first few trips out in my old trailer. Then I found the "Stay Put" hangers at CW. They're nice and heavy duty, so the work even for heavy winter coats. Over the years, I've accumulated 4 sets.

Turn the hangers around or, drive slower so the open end of the hook doesn't wind up on top of the rod

Our first trailer had the closet at the back, and we ended up buying the stay-put hangers. There is apparently so much bounce at the back end that the clothes bent the rod and we had to replace it.
Our present trailer has bedside closets at the front of the trailer and we still use the stay-put hangers, but sometimes we have end up adding a few extra (regular) hangers and haven't had any problems yet.

Use wire hangers and bend them tighter.

I have not had any issues either. I use the plastic hangers. In the old trailer I would use the metal ones and close the hook a bit.

But when you have two extra kids with enough clothes for 6 months use just make do with the bed during the day.

I think Hattie may have hit on it. Our closet is in the front, pretty much full width, and packed with hanging clothes. They always stay on the rod, and we have several miles of very rough road going to and from our home.

The reason we have so many clothes is we spend months at a time in it plus, even on weekend jaunts we can go from freezing to desert temperatures in less than a hundred mile trip. And if we're ever faced with evacuating our home due to a forest fire as we have been in the past, we're pretty much good to go.
