Reinforced walls

In searching posts re umbra hooks there were mentions of having walls reinforced during the build. I have a 17B on order - is this something I should be considering? 17Bers... have you had walls reinforced - which? I obviously need to learn more about this subject....!

I did not have the walls reinforced for my two Umbra hooks (2+3). I hang a walking stick, keys, and coats on one and camera, binocs and hats on the other so no need. But you may want to consider it if you're going to hang cast iron pans on them.

Darn... now where am I going to hang those cast iron pans...! How you are using your hooks is what I have in mind - keys, dog leash, walking stick, etc... Where did you put your hooks?

Just bring the umbra hooks when you pick up the trailer and have ETI install them. They know exactly to put them where there is extra support behind the wall.

It's not that there isn't anything solid in the walls to attach heavier objects too. There is and if you tap on the wall you'll soon hear where there's solid framing underneath. This shot of a wall in my 19 shows the type of wall construction.

As others have said most hooks etc. work fine without the wall being reinforced.

The only exception is a mount for a tv. In that case I'd want it to be attached to the underlying framing.

A mixup by Amazon I would guess. If you scroll down to product information it becomes 10.5 long again.
