Another factor in hanging stuff from walls: There is not a lot of blank wall space that cries out to have something stuck to it. I try to keep the clutter down.

Totally agree! There is so much storage available, you hardly need to hang anything.
What you don't hang, can't fall down!

Get a strong small magnet; sweep it over the wood walls and it will find the colored staples that hold the pretty wood in place on the framing. Makes it easy to find the sticks.

I donno guys.. when it comes to the sweeping magnet staples. When I finalized the build sheet for Ten Forward I didn't have a CLUE where I might hang a magazine rack or television set.


I knew how I had camped in the past and those needs.. but the future?? I ended up with a build that allows me many options. Think ahead.. not the past!

Maybe not a lot, but there is still some. The blank bathroom wall is a temping space to put things. I plant to put a couple, maybe 4-5 of these stretchable nets from the top to the bottom:

12"x16" Framed Net [OBR1216(Netting)FRAME] - Organized Obie



They seem like they will fit and can be attached to the existing studs without making the walls reinforced. I haven't actually tried it though, so take this with a grain of salt. When not in use they tighten down to almost nothing along the wall.

When ETI "reinforces" a wall, exactly how much of the wall is given a plywood backing?

Only the top 1/2 to 2/3 from what I have seen and how ours is done.

I recommend that you live with the trailer as is for a while. What happens to the hole(s) when the cheese is gone?

I have a single 3M hook on that wall and my wife hangs her sun dresses there. They cover enough wall to get in the way when trying to close the bathroom door.

The reinforcement in my 21 appears to be about 4 inches short of reaching the curved shell. Think they insert rectangular pieces of plywood so they don't follow the roof/outside wall profile.
