Can I tell you how much I love these forums?! So I looked up images for wall dog and Kreg screws,etc. My friends who retired do crossword puzzles for mental stimulation; I'm taking a foreign language--it's called doing it myself stuff around the house and TT. "Wall dog screw" just rolls off the tongue!
I think my question is answered. I want to add some shelves to a compartment on my Whitehawk 21FBS. They will only have clothes on them so mostly lightweight and I thought I'd use wood glue to attach the supports but also wanted to put a bit of a screw in the walls. I'm thinking if I used a screw that will go into the wall less that 1/2", it will add some support but not hit the outside skin. Opinions?

Another couple we go camping with uses some strange high strength velcro system in one of their hanging closets. They put extra blankets and towels on it and it works great! They put the system together so it's not something you can buy a kit for. Heavy duty velcro and shelve supports from Lowes. I don't need the extra space or I'd do it.

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.
Generally, Jayco will not release drawings and schematics for a unit until the warranty has expired.

There is a company call "Rv Cozy" that has a very strong holding velcro product.

I have installed hooks in the bathroom door, nailed gun in shelves in the coat closet by putting rails in the walls for the shelves to sit on, put a coat rack that is a shelf with hooks from target, and put a hooks on the walls in the bedroom and all I do is use short #8 screws with a dab of liquid nails on the screw. I don't want it to accidentally get tugged on to hard and rip a hole in the wall. Especially the bathroom door hook I added was with short screws and liquid nails on the back plate of the double hook I got from lowes. Works like a charm.

Here is a pick of the coat rack shelf and a added picture I put in for the homey feel.
