Extra tie downs

Hello. I have a 2013 27bh grey wolf. I am looking for where there are studs on the rear wall of the trailer that i could drill eye bolts into for the purpose of using them to help tie down items on the rear cargo carrier.

I would be reluctant to drill holes in the end wall of my camper to secure cargo. I'm not sure what you're trying to secure on your rack but could you put the eye bolts on the rack itself. We have a cargo rack on the back of our Sabre and I put eye bolts on it to secure bikes to the rack. Here's a pic.

I would have to agree with the above advice, but if you go out in the early morning before the dew has dried off, you can generally see the outline of any structure in the walls. May not give you exact placement, will let you know if there is something there or not.

Yeah I'd suggest rethinking your tie down strategy.
I also have a rear cargo rack and simply use it for cornhole boards and coolers.
I'm able to strap them directly to the rack and be fine.
However if your strapping bikes there should be an arm for the back of the rack that you can strap to.
