    Self tapping screws.... Have done a lot. And if you sell the trailer and want to keep the cabinets etc, remove them

    3/8 Self tappers, add the thickness of the cabinet and wall panel and add a 1/2" to 3/4" for screw length. They lock in nice and hard, most trailer wall studs are 1" thick.

    Rivets
    Drill them out if you need to remove anything.

    Installed all accessories hangers/fold down tables/ benches with tapping screws. Your ribbing should be 16Ē on centre. You might have to use some flat stock first if they arenít for attaching certain different sizes.

    I pre-drilled a 1/8" hole and used #14 screws for the shelves & hooks I added in. Had a few of the self tapping screws back out on me & wanted a tighter fit.

    A tighter fit is never a bad thing.

    Knew that was coming as soon as I hit the enter button & probably could have guessed it would be you.
