I have a 91 27 ft Coachmen, with some delamination. Anybody know the spacing of the metal studs, thinking of placing aluminum slats over the filon then rivet or metal screw to hold down.

Thanks,
Randy

Use a "Stud Finder". Then you will know exactly where they are.
Home Depot has them. They are not expensive. I think they are less than $20.00.

One way to see the framing is look at motorhome on a morning with heavy condensation. The frame is where the condensation isn't. Of course, this doesn't work with wood framing nor very well if the coach is aluminum skinned.

I thought the stud finder was for wood framing?
It covers both wood and metal?

I have a stud finder that will detect both wood and metal. It will also detect 120 volt ac in the wall. I highly recommend this type of sensor. Of course, to detect the ac, you need to be plugged into shore power.

Electronic Stud Finders work on the principal of "changing densities" / The difference between hollow spaces and spaces with something inside the wall. It doesn't care if it's a wood or metal stud. It only knows that the space is filled by something. It will also detect metal or plastic pipes and some wires.
