Thumbs up Wall construction on 2003 Pace Arrow

I want to remove the dinette and install a credenza and table. My concern is how to attach the credenza to the wall. How is the wall built? Are there studs like a house? If so what is the spacing and how thick? Basically the question is what do I screw the cabs to?

On our previous coach with the booth dinette, you could see where the booth seats were attached to the coach wall from the outside. Let me try to explain, looking down the wall from the outside, I could see slight raised areas (less than 1/8") that corresponded to the boards embedded in the walls to support the booth seats. These raised areas are not the aluminum wall framing. They only run up the wall to the height of the booth seats. Not sure this will work for you but it is certainly worth a look.

You won't find traditional studs and little or no wood anywhere. The wall frame is metal and spacing is irregular, as needed to frame windows and support the outer and inner skins, which are bonded to the frame. You may find wood reinforcements here and there, as paddler describes. Basically you will have to open up that wall and see what is there to work from, and then "get creative" to figure out how to mount the new stuff. Mounting to the floor may be the primary method, with just a stabilizer mount to the wall to keep it tight against it. My lower kitchen cabinets are done that way.
