Hello all,

I am interested in mounting a towel rack or hooks in the wet bath of my 177SE but having a hard time finding anything to stick.  I would rather not put any holes in the walls.  Anyone have any luck with any type of product?

Have you already tried command hooks? http://amzn.to/2iEmVi7

You could also try these heavy duty suction cups. http://amzn.to/2ie3Ggv

I found it hard to find anything that will stay stuck to the bathroom walls. I mounted towel racks, t.p. holder, and a rack with short, thick screws with a dab of chalking on them as I screwed them in. To date, everything still in place, no leaks, and we have towed a total of 10,000 miles since we bought our 177se.

Towel rack coat rack mounted on bathroom door.

Found this method works best for us.   The towel rack is held on permanent by the coat rack.

Hope this helps. Regards Leehman

Hanging towel on hooks only couldn’t be a better idea. Leehman shared one of the best ways to mount a rack and then install hooks on it. However, if you ask my personal experience, then I used an old wood board for this purpose. Yes, I cut it according to my door size and sanded it. Though the surface of board was little rough, that’s why I applied iron-on melamine edging tape like these and covered the wooden board properly. It can also give protection to your wooden board, and you don’t need any sealing, paint or varnish. It will give a wooden look like this:

Then, I attached some sticker hooks on it. I don’t think it is complicated to make at home. You can use this wooden towel mount at home with great ease. Yes, you need to install screw with the help of a screwdriver and other requirements to attach it properly with your bath door. I am also attaching some images here to get a better idea.

I also love the way Leehman suggested here.
