Attaching Accessories to the Walls in a Whitehawk?

Does anyone have experience or suggestions in attaching any kind of accessories to the outside walls in a Whitehawk? I've seen thinks like spice racks, extra haning hooks for coats and the like. If so, what kind of fasteners work best? Thanks for any suggestions.

If you contact Jayco with your year & model, you might be able to get a wall schematic that will indicate the locations of reinforcements or backers in the wall's interior. Having a backer in the wall allows your screws to have something to 'bite' into. Otherwise there is nothing but styro-foam inside the wall. If there is no backer inside the wall where you wish to mount something, you might be able to use an expandable wall anchor. But do so with great care. A wall anchor that is too long might not install because the walls are not much more than about a 1" thick. If you force it, the exterior surface of the wall may be damaged.

You might want to consider Command Strips by 3M. Different sizes for different weights. No drilling, no holes. Not sure if a stud finder will work to find any studs.

I have used 2" wide velcro for some applications. Especially if they resting on the counter behind stove.
Otherwise, a 1" wood screw with a expandable molly.
I've had trouble getting the 3M hooks to hold well against my wall covering. Seems like the wall covering is textured and won't hold a hoodie or towel.

All good suggestions. Thanks. Do you know what the interior walls are made out of? What I'm really interested in hanging is a spice rack by the stove and some coat hooks by the front door. I will call Jayco and see if they have the framing diagram.

I've been using 5/8 & 3/4" #8 & #10 screws, depending on thickness of accessory. Installed two metal spice racks from CW above stove, multiple hooks for towels, jackets, etc. No problems so far. Just completed a 27-day trip from TX to the Pacific Ocean and back. Logged 6168 miles, with quite a few on very bumpy roads. Nothing fell off. Trailer did great, only issues were owner-inflicted!

This spring we installed a few 3M Command Strip hooks on the walls, primarily for hanging coats and sweaters. We have had no problems with them coming loose or falling down through 40 nights of camping ond over 3,000km this summer.

Wall dog screws would work great.

3M makes a lot of great command products. I have a number of “baskets” installed in the trailer. I have taken the adheasive strips and attached them to my tooth brush holder to mount it to the wall. The only place I have had issues with the Comand adheasive not sticking is to the wood panelling. I found if I take a little Goof-Off and wipe the spot that I want the hook, it will then stick. I’m guessing there is a silicone coating on the paneling.

If I screw anything to the walls (done a lot of it), I remove a screw from a cabinet that is near the area, measure it, then find the approrate Kreg screw for my application. Lots of stuff held up both ways and never had any issues.

Also used #8 SCREWS. If you match up with a frame tube, you're golden. If not, might be ok if its a light picture or such. If some weight, I use some sort of a molly.
