Re-purpose a Tennis Ball into a Handy Utility RV Mount

Tennis Ball Rv Mount

Thanks to one of our forum posters they clued me into this interesting use of a tennis ball and it became clear to me that this could be converted just as easy into a RV mount. You have to be creative when it comes to RV’ing as things tend to “shift during flight” for lack of a better phrase. Items like this can stabilize otherwise loose objects such as keys, pens, cleaning towels, notes, maps, etc. I just completed this myself and once I had all the tools out it took me all of 60 seconds to complete and have mounted in my RV. If you have any other suggestions or interesting ideas for an RV be sure to post them in the comments or in the forums!
