Towels

We've been using these towels in our Class C for more than a year.

I finally got around to embroidering them. I did two sets. HERE is one.

I think that they came out pretty good and Sherry LOVES them.

Years ago we switched to Turkish towels. They are thin, but highly absorbent and dry quickly. With standard heavy cotton towels, I would have one wet towel and my wife would generate two, one for just her hair. We did not have a good place to hang 3 wet towels in the shower area and they would take forever to dry. We often seemed to have wet towels hanging from the cabinets over the dinette area. Turkish towels solved the problem.


I solved the problem by buying a collapsible bamboo drying rack, it has 11 drying rods including 5 high enough to fit XL beach towels. It collapses down to 29x14x3.5 inches, fit easily into the passthrough of my first single axle trailer 😃

Put those on eBay - Amazon

Even better if the design could resemble a picture sent in from the buyer.

Very cool. I would like to recommend that you try using custom-made towels in the following, which you can easily purchase using a website that sells custom-made golf towels. They are actually an excellent purchase, as the natural materials used in their manufacture can be useful to you. After all, natural materials will never harm you. So think about buying them with the help of platforms that are engaged in their manufacture. I'm sure you'll like it. I hope that my recommendations will help you.

Those are very nicely done! 🙂

Like some of the other commenters, I have also switched to microfiber towels. While cotton towels might get dry here in AZ, in the PNW they tend to stay soggy. Bought all mine in the automotive department at Walmart. Sure, they lack the decorative charm of 'real' towels but are a lot more practical. I also cut very thin automotive dept. microfiber towels (the ones that come in bundles) into quarters and use them for dish cloths.

Those towels will most likely be upgraded to "Guest" towels and you will never use them again 🙂

Reminds me of my going away to college package my mom put together for me. A full set of sheets etc. and RED towels. After the first wash I had pink sheets for the rest of the year.

Machine, not hand, embroidery.

Dissolving stabilizer hooped and then towel bonded to stabilizer with dissolving spray adhesive.

There is something special about camping in an RV.

We use the backpacker's friend - microfiber towels. They dry in the blink of an eye (but probably don't lend themselves to cute embroidery!)

I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be
