It has two brackets that attach to the awning arms and has
two lines on which to peg your clothes. It can be
reversed so it will place your clothes under the awning. We

of your awning arm and length of the awning.

Internal Drying Ideas
Using Shower cubicle

Airtronic diesel air blown heaters (see
related articles on these optional extras) have had an
extra air heating outlet vented into the shower cubicle and
use it as a drying room for clothes.
Four Seasons Hatch
– curtain rails have been used in this instance to
accommodate up to 4 drying rails. Very handy to hang your
towels to dry especially whilst in transit.
