Default Wall anchors

Finishing up getting things ready for our maiden trip in our 248 but for some reason Gulfsream chose not to install a towel bar or toilet paper holder in the bathroom. I went to Lowes and bought a light weight kit but with the panel wall thickness being so thin I dont feel the anchors (drywall type) that came with the kit will hold any weight. Couldnt find anything there other than toggle bolts thay would work but not too fond of drilling oversized holes to get a toggle bolt in the wall. Just seeing what everyone else have used.

This may not work in your case, but in my Tour Master I used a floor to ceiling tension pole style towel holder -- each arm can swivel on the pole but in my bath they all point the same way and the towels overlap (these RV baths are small for sure...) You can take a section out of the pole to accommodate the lower ceilings of an RV. Here is a typical cost-effective one:

I also use one over the door hook for holding a robe or a towel staged to use out of the shower (the TM has a split bath and I can just reach across the hall to that hook as I come out of the shower...)

Thanks Chuck. I ended up finding the Toggler brand at Lowes in the smallest size avail. Works great and holds tight on the thin wall panels but gotta go back and buy more since I now know these will do the job.
