Agree.., but its not legal for residential use, as far as I know anyways. Here's the thing with it: What do you do if a Hot wire comes loose and touches a metal part of the trailer like an Aluminum stud or skin? You potentially could have live voltage running through it. How about having insulation pushed right up against it? All junctions create heat. Now your trapping that heat allowing it to get hotter and hotter...

I dont know.. its your life, your decision..

I agree with installing Boxes if you can, but if you can't then these would give you a positive long lasting method. I've used them in the thin wall material and they work fine. They are threaded blind rivets and you install them like a rivet but there threaded to receive a screw.

If that doesn't work then these are a third choice. Not the best or longest lasting fastener but in some cases there the only choice.
