Tire storage in the garage

Hey folks. We have a 34WRS. I race motorcycles and want to install a tire rack for spare wheels. In the old trailer was a cargo style so attaching it to the studs was easy. My stud finder won't pick them up through the thick plywood in the garage of the W&P garage. IM hesitant to just rely on wood screws.
Anyone install something like this, and how did you do it?

If its anything like the construction of mine, there are no studs in the side walls. Its a solid 1" or so of plywood, fiberglass and interior trim panel sandwiched together.

Right you are! I took out one of the side vents to see how the wall was constructed. It needed to be caulked anyway. I'm hesitant to mount a tire rack to the wall now. I fear it would start to bow over time.

On my trailer they bolted through the wheel wells to fasten the fold down seating.
A stand built to bolt to the well and maybe some fasteners into the wall just to keep the top tight may be a idea.

That is a good idea! I could maybe even use the flip down sofa framework to build off of.

To fit my Polaris Ranger into my trailer I had to remove the small cabinet next to the fridge. Well, after a few trips I realized how handy that extra counter space would be. i plan on mounting a fold down table frame to the wheel well. Fastening anything to the walls isn't something I would trust unless you bolted completely through the side panel which I personally wouldn't do unless it was an old beater trailer that had holes in it already.

Yeah, I'm not going to hang a couple hundred pounds on one wall. Maybe mount it to the floor and secure to the wall if the sofa thing doesn't work out. Its a bummer because there is so much room in the garage but floor space gets eaten up quickly. Its a 8.5 x 14 foot space and so little is usable as a true garage.
