    Solitude 369 RL, Brand New, No Bathroom Towel Bar or Paper Holder?

    We recently finished a long period of shopping for our new 5th Wheel by buying a Solitude 369 RL. During the initial inspection, I overlooked the fact that this unit was delivered without a towel bar or a toilet tissue roll holder/dispenser? Since I assumed that any and every camper would include these items, I didn't give them a sec on thought. Has anyone else experienced this?

    We found the same with our 2015 293 Reflection, but found the paper holder in the cabinet. Installed it myself were we thought it should be. As for the towel bar still haven't installed one yet. Apparently GD believes the owners would know best what size and place to install both.

    No towel bars, but every one has the toilet paper roll holder.

    You do need to install, and it can be put wherever you want it to be.

    When they were installing them at the factory, everyone complained about where they put them...

    My dealer said most manufacturers do not install the paper holder because owners wind up moving them anyway. On my Reflection, the holder was in a drawer like mentioned above. However, we elected not to install it because it's more convenient to leave the paper on the bottom shelf of the cabinet.

    x3 in our Reflection re the toilet paper. Our 337 did though come with one towel bar behind the toilet. It is big enough for one folded towel, in other words kind of useless. We have a pressure fit towel bar in our shower (was from old trailer) and I hung my over the door towel hook thingie on it. It was supposed to be because I had no idea where to hang it, but it works out so well I am keeping it. I will switch it out to silicone tipped hooks as they towels will not likely fall down during travel.

    Hiya Greg and Sherry and welcome to the forums.
    Our Solitude did come with a towel bar and toilet paper holder. Both were located in the drawer. Neither were installed. They're really kinda cheap looking. I went shopping and found something I liked much better!

    Our Alpine we just traded came without either one too - so I wasn't surprised when they weren't in our new Solitude. The TP holder was in the drawer but we chose a floor model type TP holder. We still haven't found the best place for the towels.

    Mine came with the TP holder in the drawer also. I'm also thinking of free standing floor holder. The only other place would be inside the cabinet door under the sink. I'm thinking of a towel bar behind the toilet but the problem with that is the cabinet door beside the toilet. So in the mean time I haven't done a thing.

    We have a stand up paper holder that the wife found at Bed Bath and Beyond, we installed a towel ring next to the sink for our hand towels. We have a towel bar behind the toilet that holds bath towels just not very good as it is narrow.
