There is framing along the top of the wall on the bathroom door to attach coat hooks to.

Tonny,
I asked ETI that question and was told the walls are reinforced with 3/4" plywood and the floors are 1/2" thick.

Don't take this as anything definitive, but we don't have any re-inforced walls in our trailer. When Reace put the Umbra hooks in though, he knew where there were support pieces behind the walls, and he tapped a bit until he found something solid.

so my guess is you can do them without reinforced walls, as long as you make sure the screws are going into something more than the thin veneer.

Hello Don & Cheryl,
It was good to hear from you. Thanks you for the info on floor and wall thickness. Now I can instal hooks without worry of drilling through the fiberglass wall.
