Hanging things

I have a question, and I'm sure I'll get plenty of replies here.

I wan tot hang a couple things fairly permanently (TP holder, Paper towel rack, etc). Is there a safe way to determine how to hang these things in the trailer? I know how in a home using anchors or finding studs, but I'm pretty new to the TT, so I wanted to see how it's done!

They all DO have studs, some are aluminum though. Stud finder should find most of them.

I'm about to hang stuff too. Wife is going to hang SOME stuff with heavy duty velcro. We'll see how that works on America's roads. I ain't gonna fight her on the method. Some others we'll find the stud and use 1" screws.

We use those for hats, hanging clothes, in bedroom. But not enough weight rating to hang nice wooden camping signs, clocks, etc.

Those go without saying! DW is a teacher and lives for command hooks! (and sharpies, but that's another story)

We have used 1/8" Extra Short Hollow Wall Anchors. These are for sure on the permanent side but hold well on the interior wall panels and work on the hollow interior doors as well.

Should be able to find at your local hardware store, but showing here for reference...

I haven't done this, but this blogger suggests using pop rivets:

3M Very High Bond (VHB) double sided tape will hold almost anything.
