Last clothes horse just collapsed when I put clothes on it. Metal was far too thin, it just bent under the weight, I was not impressed as I was leaving for Bristol early the next day. My solution is this clothes horse which is the "Rolls Royce of clothes horses" by Brabantia. You don't want to know what it cost, but I will say I am very confident it could support my weight let alone lots of wet towels. Only problem is it's rather heavy, thick steel used throughout, should last for many years though.
