I got some house cabinets from a friend and want to put them in my trailer. They are the over head ones. How long of a screw should I use to mount these things or is there some other way to mount them other than screws. I dont want it to come out the other side.

Thanks
Jim

What Monson said and just look at where the beams are form the screws in the interior wall covering and make sure you hit those. Metal studs in most trailers so you get plenty of screws (I used lags in real heavy stuff) and it should do fine. I prolly overdo it but don't want that shit falling on my car.

I know it might seem overkill. I went all the way through. Used stainless steel carriage bolts & rubber washers to seal out water.
As mentioned, I did not want a cabinet falling on my fiberglass, & now my carbon fiber.

The couple trailers I worked on used a 1 inch U shaped bent metal wall joist. You could drill a small hole then measure how long a screw will work yet not go through. The roof joist were made different but still a stamped steel. Just a thought.
