Travelling long-term may pose a problem or two in connection with washing and drying. However, in addition to the portable twin tub, we also carry a portable rotary clothes airer to assist with drying. Often a washing line will suffice. Some campsites have rules regarding the use of washing lines. Whilst staying at sites with these rules, I have never had any complaints when using the airer.

The airer is light weight and some are supplied with a carry case. We also use tent pegs to hold our clothes airer in place – especially on windy days! If you decide to purchase one of these, shop around both in terms of price and also the number of arms for hanging clothes. Some have three arms and some have four, we use the four armed option as it gives more hanging space. Furthermore, some models do not have pre made “loops” to push tent pegs through – these are essential.
Where to buy a portable rotary clothes airer?
Those on longer tours will find the airer to be well worth the money particularly when hanging out towels and so on. We think that our airer has paid for itself many times over in lieu of using site laundry facilities.
