The makers of the innovative Reverse Mate caravan reversing aid have come up with another great all-Aussie invention designed to make life easier for caravanners on the road.
Due to go on sale shortly, the new Reverse Mate All-in-One Awning Clothesline is the brainchild of Queensland resident Grahame Pilgrim, an experienced RV traveller and serial inventor with a background in engineering and building.
Pilgrim says his latest invention takes up less storage space than an umbrella-type or fold-up clothesline. It also won’t blow over in the wind, and can dry many more items as well as larger items at the one time.
“The Reverse Mate All-In-One Clothesline can take full size sheets plus another line spare, (and) they fold up into a 250mm x 210mm x 150mm box,” he says.
According to Pilgrim, the two supplied clothesline brackets fit easily over the awning tube, and everything else you need is supplied in the kit including two awning tiedown clips, a centre line support bracket, 15 metres of 4mm plastic coated wire with a 165kg breaking strain, and two plastic strainer clips to tension the wire.
“There are no other brackets on the market that can be used externally or under the awning with built-in tiedown clips, plus no drilling (is) needed to install the clothesline,” he says.
Pilgrim has just finished prototype testing and the final retail versions will be manufactured in Australia.
‘You can install the clothesline either under your awning and still have your privacy screen down, plus (it) can be installed externally if you have an annexe,” he says.
