Ha ha John beat me to it.  We have the opposite going from the Windsor with a decent wardrobe to the Warwicks minuscule one has been a shock to the system particularly on this one month tour in Scotland 

Joking apart get a band strap and wrap it round the hooks when they are on the rail and it will keep things together

Is it the hangers that fall off or the clothes fall off the hangers
We use the flock covered non slip type which work fairly well at keeping the clothes on and put the hook through the hanger stitched on coats etc
to keep the hanger on the rail put a piece of foam pipe insulation on the rail helps to stop them moving around

On my van I am able to place pipe insulation over the hanging area, the individual hangers then dig into this and stay in position.

You can buy lengths of this from any diy store.
Hope this helps.

Hi
    We use the hangers that supermarkets supply with clothes the metal hooks are quite soft and we bend them to clip over the rail

i have used foam pipe insulation in the past and that does work well, now I  use those flock coat hangers, I also have one of those hanging shoe store, narrow shelves, very handy not just for light weight shoes, that takes up a few inches of rail space, then the hanging clothes on flock hangers fill the rest, haven`t had clothes in the floor for years since I have used the methods above.

I use plastic hangers with ridged silicone shoulders. I think I got them in Wilkinsons.

Another vote for pipe insulation. Works for a few items or wardrobe full.

I'm a low tech solution type of guy  smile!  We put a small rubber band over the hook of each hanger before hanging. When the clothes are hung, hook the rubber band around the rail and back over the hanger hook. All of the clothes hung up will stay in a bunch, if you push them together before travelling. Not lost anything yet  up!

Ask it's solution is very similar to mine but I use the more robust elasticated band strap normally from the pound shops

With a rubber band hooked over the hangers surely that stops you sliding hangers across the rail if needing  to, I find it so much easier just to either slide the hangers along if needed to get something out if packed or just lift off. everything to their own, would be boring if we were all the same,     smile!

I think a solution could be push all coathangers up on end then put a device (not yet made yet) on the rail to hold the coathangers from moving

 We only do it for travelling, they get unhooked on site, remain on the hooks and the hangers can be moved about or lifted out if need be. They get reattached when we're ready to move on, takes all of 30 seconds to do.

While browsing the accessories dept at my local caravan dealer I came across a pack of I think 10 coat hangers that that were covered in a tacky material which clings on to the cloths that you hang on them.

Not the cheapest option - but no more heaps of cloths on arrival at site.

We do that, the device in question being our two reclining chairs which fit neatly in the wardrobe, pushing any coathangers and clothes up to one end.
