I like the fact that that idea doesn't involve buying anything new. I'll give it a try.

Well you could call any RV parts/dealer and they might have them in their store. Just ask for the spring loaded rods for refers and/or cabinets to keep items from falling out.

Our 89 Avion has a flip down bracket that locks the hangers to the bar. You can also install an eye hook on each side of the closet and use a bungee cord across the hangers to hold them in place.

As for the spring loaded bars, they are cheaper at WalMart of Home Depot than an RV dealer. Look in the curtain rod area.

No offense, but that's what I love about RVers. We'll spend tens if not hundreds of thousands of dollars on our RV, yet we hesitate to drop a 10-spot or so on some new hangers!!!

I just use the cheap thin hangers that come back from the dry cleaners and bend the hook part with my hand so that it is tighter. We only do weekend and short week trips in a casual manner and so am not worried about long term hanging and "good clothes" hanging.

We always carry an extra pillow or two, so I just stuff the extra pillow between the closet rod and the closet ceiling. Hangers can't "jump-off" with the pillow in place. No extra cost for special hangers or for spring-rods, or anything else.

I went to Home Depot and bought a piece of insulating foam for pipes. It's black, split down the middle and comes in various diameters. I just slipped a piece over the clothes rod and that's it. Cost: about $3.00 at the time.

We took another angle, I tried the bungee and foam covers. I got some of these: [image]

Took the hooks off and used "zip strips" to fasten them to the clothes bar. Get the ones with the holes close together. You can use regular hangers, the clothes don't slide all over, and don't fall out. Seemed like a pretty inexpensive solution and has worked for us.
