For the wall, we have used the Velcro and hooks with great luck.

What grill?
Gas from the trailer is regulated, if you use a Coleman type it has a regulator and the combination will reduce the gas pressure to the point of being useless.

We use command strips to hang stuff like pictures, decorations, etc. The walls don't seem to be able to really hold much weight at all based on when my husband accidentally put a hole in the wall- there is nothing there.

I can't answer about a garage because we don't have one.

I'm not familiar with your camper but you can probably use a "stud finder" to locate the wall supports (providing they're wood). If there is no stud to attach something heavy then an old fashioned molly bolt that has the spring loaded folding arms that pop out once you push it through the drilled hole works well.

x2 on the Velcro. We put a Command hook at the top for the picture to hang from, then put regular a Command sticky velcro at the bottom so they will not vibrate off the hook. Pretty good luck so far with this system. Heavy pictures or items may require a couple of hooks and pads in case you happen to encounter a pothole on our nation's highways.

Command strips are awesome. We put some up over 5 years ago & they're still holding firm. We do take our clock off the wall before we travel, just in case it bounces too much, but we may modify it to D_B Travelers method of some velcro at the bottom, so we don't have to keep taking it down.

If you look at the outside of your camper on a cool dewy morning, you will see all the frame structure. There is no real rhyme or reason behind where a framing stud may be, other than the least amount to make it structurally sound.
