What Is The Best Way To Mount Things To The Wall Of My RV?
How to Mount Things on the Wall of Your RV
I have a 2005 Coachmen Freedom Class C Motorhome that we purchased last year. Now that we have spent some time in it, we want to make some minor upgrades, and some will require screwing screws into the RV walls on the interior. (for example adding a TV that is wall mounted)
I am familiar with doing these in a homemade of wood and drywall using mollys or finding a stud. Is this similar for RV's?
What is the best way to go about doing this?
I just don't want to mess up the RV by going to0 deep on a screw and causing issues.
ANSWER: Hi Jason, let me start off by saying that I do not recommend ever using, screws, nails, molly bolts, etc. on any walls of an RV; by doing so you run the risk of hitting wiring or causing severe damage to the walls of your RV. They are not constructed the same way the walls in your house are.
That being said, depending on the type, make, model, and construction of your RV you may be able to securely mount an LCD TV on the wall. An alternative that I would recommend would be to use an under cabinet TV Mount on one of your RV's overhead cabinets. There are all kinds of TV Mounting Brackets available and I am sure that you will find one that works for you.
Now if you want to keep decorative items, such as small Vases, Fake bowls of fruit, small Chihuahuas, etc. from sliding around on your countertops while going down the road you might want to fasten them down with Earthquake (Museum) Putty.
Let's say that you want to permanently mount something on the wall of your RV such as a Fire Extinguisher, small shelf or towel rack. Your best bet is to use a Pop Rivet Gun rather than screws, etc. Take a look at the Video below to see how easy it is to rivet items to the wall of your RV.
