I bought one of those and it works well in less desirable campground showers, also. When folded up, there is room to carry soap, shampoo etc within it. Put them in a ziplock bag and free up a hand to carry clothes and towel. 

 

As far as making it last, you could put a couple of layers of epoxy paint or gel coat on it.

Seems like priorities are constantly changing in the camping world. Because of this, I dont like drilling or screwing anything I dont absolutely have to. <--- that didnt sound right :huh:

I hear you.  We've had good luck the the 3M Command strips and hooks.  I even mounted a little Command spice rack behind the sink counter that has stayed put.

How do those tape strips work when the camper is really hot in the summer?

Anything made by 3M works very well for it intended purpose.

... and I dont just say that because I make the glue.  :D

I have an intimate relationship with 3M, their lawyers threatened to sue me  :P

It's a long story... and I don't want to get sued by a 100+ billion dollar company, so I'll leave it at that.

 

I agree, they make the best products on the planet.

Here is my low-cost dust cover for the water heater. Mine is on the back wall so it gets caked in dust which I believe was the death of the original thermostat/controller unit in the water heater that I just replaced. I got a car door magnet like you use for a business ad on the side of your vehicle and cut a piece to go over each vent. For the left side vent louvers the magnet is on the inside, for the big screened vent the magnet goes on the outside.  I've been driving around for weeks with them and they stay on just fine.  I just need to remember to take them off when I fire up the water heater.  You can find this stuff on line for several dollars per sheet.
