Hi Don--to answer your question, the rod is in a CG in Maryland
in a closet at the far back wall of the camper, in the quad bunkhouse (I took over the kids' closet because it is the biggest storage area in the entire camper.) The closet is bookended on both sides by the bunkbeds. The rod is like a regular one at home, a few inches from the top of the closet. The closet itself is the height of the taller bunks, not all the way to the ceiling. The rod is plastic or maybe plastic coated. I have thought about covering the rod with something more "grippy" but don't really know what that would be, maybe some sort of rubbery adhesive-backed material. The clothes stay on the hangers (even after they've fallen)-- it's just that the hangers do not stay on the rod.
It's to the point where one of the first things the kids do when we stop and set up is go back to the closet, and see if the clothes/hangers have fallen so they can be the first to bring me the good or bad news--it's always bad! They've never not fallen!
