Myron, this is the method that Escape uses for all their attachments to the shell. There is nothing wrong with attaching something permanent this way, I did it, and hove no regrets. Not sure how this is different that any interior modifications done on/to walls and cabinets. I plan to do lots of that too.

The biggest thing is though, is that there is little available exterior wall space to use anyway, with the large amount of window area, little flat wall is left.

Not me. I don't hesitate to drill or screw into the wood cabinet walls because they're just wood. But the vinyl? What happens to the hole when the cheese is gone?

You are going to have to ask that sage baglo about that one. LOL

But no different than the Escape installed stuff, I would only do it if deemed to be permanent, as pretty much every mod is. Besides, it is not that tough to patch the vinyl if you ever wanted to.

There's little vinyl area for hanging things anyway, as has been said. We mount things to the bulkhead walls and wood instead.
