I don't like your Amazon suggestion as I think you may push the walls apart and slip down, especially with heavy wet garments on it.
You need something temporary, so that it's not in the way of other functions (and I'm assuming that you don't plan to go out under wet conditions).
If you have a roof vent in there, you may be able to hang a kind of 'meat-hook' from the fittings.

We have a extendable shower rail in our Revolution positioned just behind the shower curtain, you cant even see it, and hang them from there. the coats can get in the way when you use the toilet but I cant see where else to put them.

In the bathroom we have the same extendable rail in the same place. We also have 2 hooks on the wall joining the bench seat plus 2 more on the outside wall. The hooks are all self adhesive

@Grianan we do exactly the same with our Campscout but bought aluminium expanding pole from @jetport, I also use it to carry clothing on hangers.

I’m looking for somewhere to hang wet coats .... thought about this over the toilet in Campscout.

Any other solutions?

Ideally a doggy bag for coats would be fabulous .....

Amazon product ASIN B074M6DVWD
There is such a thing - saw them on a stand at NEC Show but not tried it https://thedrybag.co.uk/shop/ - designed for wet suits but should work for coats too? Not cheap at £60 but might be worth it.



Water that drips off can be emptied out of the bottom & mesh panels (Elite version) allow it to dry in the bag.

Funnily enough I thought of a 'suit' cover, the type you can buy for use at home, or when going away, but didn't fancy the thought of 'holding' the moisture in and how smelly they'd get.

The idea of the Elite version of the Dry Bag is that air flows through the mesh panels so wet suits "dry" in the bag - might work for waterproof coats to contain the drips but not tried to see if would really allow total drying of any type of fabric.

Don’t know how I missed this @Wombles ... I think you may just have solved a problem for me .... when DS sails away from home overnight he needs somewhere to dry off his wetsuit so he’s not sailing in it cold and wet the next day (especially in winter off the coast of Scotland!). This may just solve this problem for us .... thank you!!

One thing we do with wet coats is dry them with a microfibre towel before we take them off (as it's easier to do it that way) - it's surprising how much moisture you can take off them and it really does reduce the time it takes for them to dry.
