It’s always a challenge to find somewhere to hang clothes, beach towels, and bath towels for outdoor drying.

I used scrap wood to make a bracket to attach to our ladder without using screws.

To that frame, I attached a retractable clothesline reel.  We hold it in place with velcro straps.  When we travel it can be quickly taken down.

We can attach the other end of the line to a tree or the pole of the awning if it is out.  Depending on what you hang, it could provide sun and a privacy block.  It has been very useful.

MultiUse On The Ladder Clothesline Reel

For this project, I used scrap wood, nails, screws, a clothesline reel, and velcro scraps.  It took me one hour to complete this modification and cost me $27.

In my opinion, the skill level of this modification is medium.
