attaching cabinets to traile wall

Hi we just got a 2013 195BH cruise lite. We'd like to install a newly purchased medicine cabinet in the bathroom. I'm not sure if the framing is wood or aluminum but i'm guessing wood. Any tips on mounting such items? a jokster suggested using stainless bolts from the outside in, not likley. any better suggestions?

1x1 Wood or 1 inch square Aluminum tubing is what you are looking for.
Today's stud finders will work on both types of stud.

Try to catch one stud and use a good quality hollow wall anchor like "Wing-It" fasteners for the other. Medicine cabinets won't take a lot of weight so you should be OK. Heavier stuff needs at least 2 studs.

Hey Cleon,

We, too, just purchased a new, 2013 (Salem/Wildwood/etc.) Cruise Lite 195BH. Among other additions/modifications, we plant to add a cabinet to the bathroom.

I'll be watching your posts!

Thanks for asking this great question.

Martin
