Anchoring to floor in storage compartment

I have a cabinet I need to secure in the storage compartment in my Brookstone 340Ls. Should I go through the wall to the front battery and genset area or through the floor? The location is such that I should??? miss all lines of any type in either location. The advantage to the front wall is I have access to both sides where as with the floor I don't know if I could see the back side even with removing the underbelly panels. Are the walls made with wood studs where my locator would read them or are they metal studs?

I would bolt it to the wall, it would be a royal pain to run a screw in to some unseen wires.

I think Coachman's have aluminum wall studs

the floor is going to plywood, probably in the 1/2 inch range. Short wood screws would get a good bite, depending on what you want to anchor. If your plan was to through bolt, then I suggest the front wall as you are correct, it would be harder to get to them underneeth.,

A rainy day camping is better than a sunny day at work.
