What size screws to use?

I'd like to put some pegboard in the outside storage area to hang up my tools and such. I have no idea how thick walls are in the RV in order to choose the correct size screw. I realize it will depend on what I'm screwing the pegboard into for frame as well but if someone could tell me how thick the walls are I can do the math.

I'd also like to hang up one of those metal closet organizers under the cabinets above the bed. Do you know how thick the wall is to the outside so I don't poke a hole into my brand new XLR Microboost 27lrle? Also the thickness of the wall to the little closet and which screws would be best to use for these projects?

I've tried searching the internet and youtube but I can't seem to find specific information.

Thank you so much.

Typically the walls total thickness is about 2" When Installing things on any walls in my rig I use nothing longer then 1.25". Something to consider is that in many areas it is best to install a doubler to support what you are hanging.
