How do you hang anything on the walls?

Hi All! We have a 2018 Surveyor 200mble. I bought a 3 hook coat rack to hang inside the door for keys, dog leash and maybe a lightweight jacket. We canít find a stud on that wall. Any ideas on how to hang it? It has 2 places to hang on the back by a nail or screw. Itís too heavy for command strips or double sided tape.

Thanks in advance!

We got a version of one of those and hung it on the side of a cabinet. We're a bit leery of drilling holes in the walls.

1.25 inch.
Here's a pic of the bag. I think it came from Lowes. Notice how much it can hold in 1/4" plywood.

Your welcome from a fellow PA guy. I used to hunt in your county, but I'm from near Harrisburg.

Holes in RV walls are dangerous. No one has any idea where the pipes and wires are.

I use command strips. Based on the experiences of others, I plan on replacing them each season.

On a related note, quality suction cups are great for mounting on (not corrugated) exterior walls. Of course you have to put them up at the beginning and take them down at the end of each stay. They don’t travel well.

We used Scotch Extremely strong strips. They are a little hard to find but will hold up a lot of weight.

Consider that, if you use "toggle bolts" or the equivalent on thin plywood paneling, the coat rack will stay attached to the panel. Now will the panel stay attached to the "studs?" Likely not. Many of these panels are attached with staples. You may need to add some screws to the top of the panel, above the coat rack, and strengthen its attachment to the framing. Bear in mind the weight of the coats, cantilevered on the end of those hooks, will want to pull the whole panel off the wall.

A screw like this one would do the trick: https://www.zoro.com/zoro-select-cou...YaAv-ZEALw_wcB I'd choose #10 x 1" and pre-drill small pilot holes to prevent splitting the framing.

I'd put about 4 of them in above the coat rack to spread the load and secure the panel to the framing. Add a bit of Gorilla glue to the threads to ensure they stay put. Don't get too zealous with the Gorilla glue, because it behaves like expanding foam insulation...and oozes out. But it works well.
If you don't want' shiny screws to mar the appearance of your wall, use an old sheet of cardboard or a box and screw them into the box. Then spray paint the heads to match your interior. Let them dry overnight, and then install. Use a cheap, disposable artist brush and a bit of the spray paint in a paper cup to touch up if they get marred by the screwdriver, or if some glue oozes out. Very easy. This will make for a long-lasting job.

No drilling

If you don't want to drill any holes, this stuff works well. Just keep in mind that if you want to pull it off of the wall, the wallpaper may come with it. You can pull it off but go very, very slowly and it might not take off the wallpaper.

We have probably used 4 rolls of this stuff. It works great. Same stuff they use for EZpass transponders. All of our pictures and such are hung with this. And yes it can be removed if you are careful.
But for the OPs hanger they needed something a little stronger.

I have never used it, but this stuff gets a lot of great reviews.

My 2 cents. I avoid mounting anything to an exterior wall.

When mounting to an interior wall with anything like screws or anchors, I always check it with a studfinder that can identify "electric". And then double check again.

The "war department" swears by those newfangled "command strips" ? They also come in a rope. Which may work for your coat hook.

Good Luck

Try ditching the set of hooks you have and using Command hooks instead. Anything heavier than a Command hook can hold will likely damage your entire wall.
