Studs in wall?

I'm wondering if anyone has knowledge of any vertical support structure/stud material in the area I've circled in the picture. I want to add a cargo door there to access the space that traverses the entire back of the trailer. Right now I can get to it from the back cargo door. But it would sure be nice to get to it from the side, especially when the rearward bunk is down.

No clue to be honest, but have you tried a simple stud finder? They usually work on campers- even with aluminum frames.

This time of the year with the morning dew, it will outline the wall studs, on the exterior of a trailer wall.

Sure did! One of the best mods I've ever done. LOTS of storage space in there. And long enough to hold fishing poles if needed!

Sure. The trailer is down at the farm right now so I will get a picture next time I'm there. The door came from EBay!

Looking forward to seeing your results, thanks for the eBay thought, didn't even think to try it there!
