My DH spent most of yesterday beefing up the shelves in our TT. The shelves in our TT are woefully inadequate, but I'm sure that is how FR can save weight in their "ultra light" models.
They were all held in with small staples, and not very many of them. He put screws in instead - and quite a few of them! In addition, he glued three strips of wood to the underside of each shelf using waterproof and heat resistant wood glue. He clamped them until dry and put a screw in the end, if needed. For the bottom shelf in the bathroom cabinet, he ran two pieces of wood down to the floor, one in the front and one in the back. He was also able to gain some vertical space one one of the shelves; he took out the slanted piece of wood hiding all the wiring and replaced it with a squared-off version.
All of the shelves now feel much, much sturdier! I had visions of all of my pantry items crashing to the floor.
I'll post some photos when I get a chance.
