Probably a ridiculous question

Perhaps I am being overly paranoid, but here goes. How does everyone attach things such as a paper towel holder etc. in their TT's? I was thinking velcro. I just can't bring myself to putting screw holes in kitchen cabinets, walls etc.

My rule of thumb is if you can put it under a cabinet fine. I don't believe in putting anything into the walls on the inside or outside. Sometimes a little accessory can cause a big problem.

I cringe when I look at the awning mounts!

We have drill holes under cabinets, but for walls...

Try checking out Command Products (no holes to drill in wall and can be removed without leaving residule stickiness)

We found some of what we needed at WM.

X2 holes in bottom of cabinet and command hooks on the wall.

Someone on here, Quahog I believe, found a magnetic paper towel holder and placed on the side of his stove hood. I liked the looks of it and no drilling, but was concerned about having to move it every time we used the stove or risk a fire.

I also don't like punching into walls, on either side. In the shower and bath sink I've used adhesive backed holders for soap, etc. DW bought a stand up holder for the paper towels.

I use glue, double sided tape, command hooks, Velcro, and screws to mount one of the three paper towel holders that is attached to the wall just to the right of the stove top. I used 1/4 inch screws which are 1/2 the length of the screws Jayco use to mount my medicine cabinet in the bathroom.
No I am NOT retired. I work full time.:D

My wife is fond of small nails for pictures, calendar, etc. No problems that can't be solved with a puddy stick.

A friend gave my wife a sign for our new TT, I said no way are we putting nails in the walls, she then handed me a pack of those Command Products and they work perfect.

I did add some shelves in one of the closets on my 23j. I used a screw a tiny bit smaller than the screws jayco uses. I don't think it caused any problems but it's only been a couple days. Fingers crossed no issue arrises. As far as paper towels, I found a stand up holder which has a suction cup on bottom made by sharper image. I bought it at home goods and saw it one at bj's/Costco (1 of them). I leave it right on the counter when traveling with no problems.

The command products are the way to go (IMO). My wife has an assortment of them in the camper and in the house. We have used them for pictures, clock, thermometer, etc. We even used them to velcro the television remotes to the inside of a cabinet door. Even with towing across the bumpy roads of South Louisiana, we are still yet to have anything fall.
