How to attach toilet paper holder? No solid supports behind wall?

Our new Forester 2501 came with the toilet paper holder in a box. At walk through the man said that's so you can attach wherever you want. We can't figure out where to put it where it won't rip out if the wall. In a house we'd look for studs or use a molly. The bronze screws wound work with mollys anyhow. Any suggestions?

We use a stand alone toilet paper holder that sits next to the toilet and of course it matches the toilet paper holder! We don't leave it there were we are on the road. My better half has a place to put everything. I would not want to go thru the wall. Good Luck

My Forester 2401W came with the same holder. I used screws in the kit to fasten it on the sidewall next the toilet. The sidewall consists of a ~1/2 inch wood board inside of aluminum frame and the screws are less than 1/2 inch so it's safe to use. It works well for me.

We just have an over-the-door hook hanging on the door to the vanity.

I used the screws provided but before attaching to my vanity I used extra strong 3m tape. Screwing there the tape and vanity. The tape helps the screws hold and keeps the object in place. Did same with paper towel holder in kitchen cabinet. Nothing's fallen yet and my grand kids have week empty over - yanking and pulling.

our last TT (an avenger, literally did not have anywhere that we could hang one or stand one without it being in the way, so we just kept it under the sink, and it was handy there because it was at an angle beside the toilet.
our new camper (a 5th wheel) we have a couple of places to put it and the room, but just haven't decided yet which place to put it-
