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.
There’s no pricing listed yet on the Reverse Mate website, and Pilgrim says first stock is due to arrive in January 2023. For enquiries email [email protected]

The ReverseMate All-In-One Awning Clothesline with built in Tiedown Clips makes drying clothes easier for RV Travellers.
We are proud to say our All-In-One Clothesline is being manufactured in Australia.
There are a lot of travellers on the road going from place to place these days and find themselves in need of a clothesline. The laundry facilities in most of the campgrounds have limited amount of electric dryers for your convenience but you can still wait a long time until one is available, and they cost you a lot of money. The down side is you do not know what has been previously dried in these dryers e.g. dog blankets. We have heard recently that some RV Parks are installing electric meters and this will be an additional cost to travellers if you use your own washer and dryer in your RV.
For occasions when using the dryer is neither feasible nor preferable for delicate or special care items, daily drying of dish cloths, bath towels, swimsuits, beach towels as well as finishing damp laundry that did not completely dry in the coin-operated machines this is where the ReverseMate All-In-One Clothesline will make life easier for travellers. As per the pictures below, you can install the clothesline either under your awning and still have your privacy screen down plus can be installed externally if you have an annexe.
Sometimes access to a permanently-placed clotheslines in an RV Park is not convenient or available. A number of travellers use an umbrella-type clothesline. Even though these fold up the clotheslines can be quite large when you do not have much space to store them. As many travellers would know this type of clothesline can blow over when the winds pick up and is limited to the amount of washing you can put on them. The ReverseMate All-In-One Clothesline can take full size sheets plus another line spare, they fold up into a 250mm x 210mm x 150mm box.

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 needed to install the clothesline,
Warning make sure the All-In-One Clothesline is removed prior to retracting the awning.
