Repairing Trim/molding inside Trailer

Looking for some advise on what to use to rehang trim and molding on my travel trailer?? Have all new pieces just unsure how to rehang them, do you just staple them in place?? What size staples or screws to use?? Trailer is a 1998 SunnyBrook all fiberglass with Aluminum Structure. Thanks In advance for your help.

Most trailers' molding is just stapled in place by the manufacturer.
I prefer to drill and use paneling nails like one would in a home. they hold better, in my opinion.
I also ran a bead of silicone around the bottom of cabinets to keep spilled water from intruding under the cabinets in the Galley, but let it cure before putting on the molding, in case I ever want to remove the molding easily again. then fill the holes with wood putty in matching color.
My friend has a Sunnybrook TT of about the same vintage as yours and is fixing up her interior too. Helped her put reflective UV coating on the inside of the windows so I really got to crawl around in it. Very nice trailer, very well laid out.

Since you cannot drive a nail into the aluminum framework, I would use the same staples as the mfgr. You may rent an air or electric stapler for the job.
