These hooks are on the ceiling panel over the queen size bed on my Rockwood A212HW A-Frame. They are intended for hanging a cloth shelf of a sorts to use as a pantry. There are a total of four attachment points. They appear to be attached by pop rivets and do not go all the way through the panel to the outside. Makes me wonder if they are anchored into a metal "stud". Can anyone tell me if these roof panels have framing studs to provide rigidity?

The dealer that sold me my a-frame gave me some contact info for a factory rep. Hopefully he'll be able to answer my questions.

I am wondering how strong they are, too. What sorts of things do the rest of you hang from them?

Ya know I'd like to know the answer to these questions and after sitting and studying the matter, or I should say laying on the bed and looking up at them for at least a half hour I decided that who ever placed them there must have had a long night. I hooked the shelving unit up to it and can't find any way to use both the shelving unit and the pull down rack. One gets in the way of the other. My conclusion is the hooks should have been put in over the microwave not over the sink.

I've seen where the bar is between the hooks, and yeah that's about useless. My unit has the bar close to the hooks, we use it to hang towels. Got a pic of yours Nancy?

Yeah, see on mine the wardrobe is shifted to the left about 12 inches. I wonder if any of it can be moved?

Finally got outside to get you a pic. Not sure if you could move anything to fix it though. Maybe ask FR?

Slightly different

I'm beginning to suspect there's no rhyme or reason for the location. According to the tech rep from the factory with whom I spoke those d-ring loops aren't anchored into anything more substantial than thin sheet metal. I wouldn't hang more than 10lbs in that rack. I asked if the roof panels had any structural framing to which he said only on the perimeter. I've come up with an elegant solution I do believe. I'll be posting pictures in a day or so. My solution involves attaching d-ring anchors to the roof above the sink/refrigerator counter in my A212HW just below the levers that lock that side to the roof panels. Using carabiners I then clip a reinforced 6'4" wire closet shelf from Home Depot to the d-rings. I then hang 4 wire baskets and a paper towel dispenser from the shelf. The storage space is awesome.
