TT wall penetration

I want to hang some shelves inside the trailer. Can I just screw them in or should I use liquid nails? Or something else?

If you aren't lucky enough to find some sort of aluminum wall stud (which are few and far between) then I would use drywall anchors and a dab of Gorilla glue. I also wouldn't plan on putting a whole lot of weight on the shelves.

Good luck and post some pics of your project when your done.

If you trailer has Fiberglas exterior, the interior partition walls are studded using wood. You can locate the studs and use screws to mount shelving. The perimeter walls are studded with Aluminum and hard to locate.

If the shelf isn't too large, you can most likely use small wood screws to attach it.

Thanks much. The shelves are relatively small and will attach to an interior partition between the bathroom door and the bathroom sink. Maybe I can find some sort of aluminum framing to attach the screws to. I do have dry wall anchors if that's easier.
I don't have a fiberglas exterior. This is only to hold toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc., so nothing very heavy.
