Newbie Question About Hanging Things

Just bought my 2018 North Point. Iíll be living in it full time with my 2 dogs and my cat. I am wanting to mount at cat tree system that will allow my cat to climb up the wall to get in and out of the loft so she can separate herself from the dogs if she wants. This will save us all a little stress. The device weighs 25lbs (distributed across the wall) and my cat weights 13lbs so I need a solution that will hold at least 20 but up to 40ish lbs. can you even hang that much weight on the walls? If so what is the best way to do that? I also openly welcome any advice for a newbie to rv living!

I would be a bit concerned hanging that much weight on the walls. Even if you find studs with all the screws you have to use extremely short screws. I'm not sure that the unit would hold up to the bouncing and possible flexing it might get while traveling down the road.

Not exactly sure what/how this system is designed but maybe consider using the wall attachment for security and run something to 5he floor to carry most of the weight. That may address some of Marcm157's input because I think it is valid. There's a lot of bumping and jostling going on as you travel down the road..

We use Command Velcro strips.
Each large one holds 25#... I over do it and apply more strips than needed.. we have framed pictures with glass and after ~5000miles every thing is still on the walls. Great product.. and they come off without a mark.
