I'm thinking there will be an aluminum sill plate , but your covering it anyway , why not drill a 1/8" hole to be sure.

I used my commercial grade hot glue gun. Worked first class.

The inside wall sheeting should be approximately 1/8" thick luan plywood. Your brad nailer should do a good job of attaching the corner trim board to the wall. I would angle the nails some for a better hold. The only problem you may have is if you try to put a nail in at a metal wall stud.

Since a RV is a moving flexing thing, I wonder if glue and brad nails would be better?

Likely the wall has vinyl wallpaper covering it. I don't know if gluing the base trim board to the wall is a great idea from the perspective that removing the board later could cause damage to the wallpaper.

X2...that's the way I did mine on a previous coach.

Excellent replies.
Here is a suggestion for the molding itself:
If 1/2" on the bottom is wide enough use "base shoe" and not "quarter round".
Base shoe is the proper/common molding used at floor/wall joints.
It measures 1/2" X 3/4".
