We use 25 mm corrugated plastic hose from clark rubber or similar supplier. Cut hose to length and slide over wardrobe rod. Bend wire hanges slghtly and the "groves" in the hose stop the clothes from sliding back and foprth.

Another thing I've done is screw chrome towel rods to the ceiling of the pop top,either side of the island double bed. Wet towels dry while we drive and don't get in the way if we stop for a cuppa.

We had the same problem when we bought our 1st ever van and ended up fixing the problem with this solution.

If you get some foam and cut it to the right size and then wedge it between the hanger rod and the roof - keeps the clothes hangers on the rod and they will never come off no matter what the terrain and you don't have to bend the hangers etc which can then make them hard to get off if need be.

We had the same trouble, then went to wash & wear clothes IE. drip dry and found the robe was of no benefit so I made shelves for the robe increasing the storage potential about threefold much to the co pilot's delight.
Think outside the square when travelling as most Aussies wear casual clothing.
I used to have a handle on life, but it broke.

The Reject Shop presently have some terrific hanging type pocket things suitable for giving you more shelf room in caravan hanging. We bought what looks identical to what is in the current Reject Shop catalogue about five years ago and has proven fabulous. For the few hangers we do have, we use Big Pop's method of a bit of sponge rubber. I did glue two little strips of wood in above the hanging rod to locate the sponge better as it did fall out on the odd occasion.

My problem is the cupboard is overloaded with hanging clothes, its compressed so tight nothing will move no matter how bad the road gets!

Cheers,

Glenn.

Glenn,

You must travel like us! When I read this earlier, asked the Wife what we did, when we lived in a van for 6 years, about 17 years ago.

She replied: " Clothes were packed in so tight, nothing could fall off".

They were good years!

Hooroo...

Can't remember most of it.
