Need recommendation

Hi all,
We have really appreciated all the recommendations we have received regarding our newbie questions.
I need some help again. We have a 2018 Axis 25.2 with a small kitchen area.
Wondering what type of paper towel holders you use. Also is it ok to use screws to put one up?

I use a paper towel stand I bought at Dollar Tree, As to affixing things to the walls, we have hung clocks and hooks using screw in wall anchors.

I have a real aversion to drilling or screwing anything into the wall, never know where they have routed electrical, or plumbing. Then add the unknown, because its inconsistent from one unit to the next, depending on who the assembler was, and other unknowns. We too use a paper towel stand, which always be moved out of the way.

I am adverse to drilling holes in the RV as well for the same reasons as Laco We have used Gorilla double sided mounting tape for our towel holder in our last coach and 3M sticky coat hooks both with good results. Be forewarned the Gorilla tape ain't coming off without a fight so make sure whatever you are putting up is in the right place.

In my 18 Compass I put up a paper towel holder by putting a backer board behind the window valance and screwing the holder to the backer board (1x2) You cannot see the backer board and its very secure

Drill no holes...next buyer will not want that. We just store them in the microwave and set the roll on the counter when cooking/camping. I try to keep everything as original as I can with no mods...even though there are lots of little things I would do, otherwise.

I got the same type of fabric that covers the valance where the screw holes are and when and if I do sell will just fill the holes and cover with the fabric but some new owner may like to have the tower holder where it is.

Use one that hangs from front of cabinet. No screwing and put away for travel. Bracket allows cabinet door to close.

We have a paper towel holder that hooks over the top of the left cabinet door over the sink. That big box store so many of us use for free overnights has it for about $10.

While I agree: I DO like the idea of using Velcro.

Gosh, Iíve drilled lots of holes in my RVs! Sometimes even cut larger openings for things I want to add. I have even drilled holes in the top of my dashboard to hold my GPS more securely than just a sticky pad could. I just try to do it neatly and carefully. The first cut is the hardest! I found a paper towel holder at Menards that has a light ratchet mechanism so that it canít unroll itself while driving. I mounted it with screws to the bottom of the upper cabinet and DW likes it a lot.

I got one that stands upright and has suction cups on the bottom. Works great and stays in place.

My papertowels hang on the window vallance above the kitchen sink. Took an old bungee cord with hooks on each end and cut it to length to get the needed tension. Then ran the cord thru the roll of towels and it hangs there until needed.

No holes, no screws, no marks if I or the next owner wants to move it. And while you can easily find the towels they are up out of the way.
