Try these. They work well if you have a stripped thread. Not so well if there is nothing but air or foam behind/in the wall.
Might have to search big box hardware stores for them

I have today used a stud finder,, and found where the vertical studs are. Just empty wall space in some areas . Has anybody used Gorilla Glue ? Its supposed to expand when used. If I can get these screws to hold some, the screws into metal should hold the main part. I at this point don't want to mess up the interior walls with through bolts.
Thanks.

I have used Gorilla Glue on many things. I would suggest you do a test on something before gluing the strip. It will expand a fair bit and it works it's way out around the edges. Be sure to dampen both surfaces first, it needs moisture to work correctly.
Happy Glamping.

Thanks very much... At this point I just want to "glue" the screws in the thin wall so they hold something and it doesn't get worse. Since Gorilla Glue does expand, I would think in my case thats a good thing... Right?

Not too sure if that would work too well.
Have you checked out the "Banana Peel" rivets? They work well. You could double up on them, and it will be there forever.
Happy Glamping.

You might try looking at nutserts, you should be able to find them at hardware store or auto parts store.
They are used to make a threaded hole to install mirrors and such into sheet metal. Work like rivets but you have a threaded hole to screw into
