Mounting to wall.

2020 coachrmen cross trek. Is it possible to screw into the walls on the inside. I was thinking about taking the dinette set out and attaching a drop down table top right under the windows. I know I would be limited by wall thickness and possible wires but the previous owners had 6 screws in the wall holding a tv mount (bunk area) and they felt pretty solid. Thanks

I used moly hollow wall anchors. There is a trick to installation so the supplied bolt does not penetrate through an adjoining wall. The installation bolt must be shortened after the moly is approx. ˝-way collapsed.

I would look at finding a way to mount a piece of plywood or even plank wood along your mounting axis so that you can distribute the stress that otherwise would be just on your mounting bolts. No pullouts that way, no going though into something maybe important.

If it wasn't made for it I wouldn't. Like Bobby F said. Put a board or something against the wall that goes all the way to the floor to support the weight. Then mount the table to that.
