Wet weather Gear question

We really want to use our Nuevo all through the winter. Presumably, the resultant wet coats and wellies need to be kept in the shower cubicle. I wonder if you lovely people could give me some of your tips / solutions of how to hang coats to dry and store. There is nothing solid at the moment in at I would trust to take the weight.
Thanks in anticipation.

Hi Lourick, The bathroom entry door on our Nuevo has 2 decent strength hooks on the inside. We hang our wet coats up on these. The blown air heating also goes into our bathroom so we stick that on and open the small skylight to let moisture out. The coats are usually dry in 15 minutes it gets that warm in there👍🏻

Yes - easy to make such hooks out of a wire hanger, or brass curtain hooks. They fit over the top of the perspex shower door (which is itself kept in place by fitted clips). Has worked for us - wet anoraks x 2. 
We also have an extendible clothes lines unit, which when open is held by two hooks; but I wouldn't put much weight on those clothes lines - they stretch, and make it very awkward to get to the sink.

I keep two spare hangers in the wardrobe for the wet coats and hang them on the hook on the  back of the bathroom door and the other slots nicely over the shower divider. I also keep a trouser hanger to clip onto the towel (microfibre) that is used to dry the dog which is hung on another hook. Combined with Truma heating all dries quickly. Leave the wool coats at home. 

The joys of winter.

Our Stanton came with a Brabantia pull out clothes line fitted in the bathroom. The total length of the lines is 22m, yet it can be fully retracted. We use the van all year, And have Truma heating in the bathroom. We often refer the bathroom as the drying room ! It works very well, although I wouldn’t know about fixing it in our Coachbuilt myself. Cheers. Mike

Thank you everyone for your replies and suggestions. In ours, the wardrobe side of the shower room is all the original plastic one piece panel. I think a hook on the back of the door would be a solution, but may put excess weight on the door hinges. Glad to hear that the heating will help dry garments in there.

when I bought my Nuevo, I got the dealer to get the factory to send some off cuts of the wood, some screw covers and some edging tape. I cut a simple rectangle and edged it using an iron. I used at least 6 screws, probably 4x30mm and once fitted the screw covers. It is located under the washing line.I feel that it looks original and it does the job well. I have also done this in two Broadways with no problems. On this topic, should the hook on the door come loose be cause the screws were inadequate, I replaced the screws using hollow wall fixings, which came in a kit from Aldi/Lidl. it involves some careful drilling, position wise but does a stronger job than the original and doesn't look out of place.
