Hanging a bin on trailer wall

We need to hang a lightweight bin on the wall in out TT bathroom behind the toilet. Iím planning on it holding 2 rolled up towels and a few rolls of toilet paper so total weight is about 15 pounds. It is directly below the medicine cabinet. Any suggestions on how to secure this ?. We were thinking a French cleat but we twill are not sure how to secure the cleat on the wall so it will hold. Thanks in advance for helping!

There should/might(?) be at least one stud on that wall. Using the French cleat is a great idea as you can span the entire wall. I did something similar recently as I had a stud on one end and a partial stud on the other end. I used a toggle bolt in the middle with success. You can use multiple toggle bolts to spread the weight.

Hang the basket from the medicine cabinet. You know there is something to attach screws to with that method. Inside your walls? Not so much. Don’t count on framing inside your walls. It not built like a house.

Interior or exterior wall?
Hollow or foam filled?
Use a stud finder.

Many will use some kind of toggle bolt unless you have studs in the right place.

Another option that many people use is command strips. They come in a variety of weights and uses.

I've used command strips for a couple of years. No permanent holes.

It seems to me that saying you have a "TT" is insufficient information to determine the TT building material. Our Lance walls in the bathroom shower have aluminium studs or supports, I know because I've had to drill into them. Even at that I believe the other walls with backing and foam would hold most light fixtures such as a towel rack. So what TT do you have?

command strips.i actually used a couple on the outside of my old truck camper to hang my bbq utensils and garbage bags and they stayed stuck through all kinds of weather for years.3m 2 sided molding tape for auto trim also works extremely well.

Check amazon for hanging baskets with adhesive hooks. One example is the one below. We have these all over the place and the work great.

A HUGE thank you for you suggestion about these bins. They worked great. I used the large ones in the bathroom for towels and the smaller ones inside of the kitchen cabinet doors for small items . Thanks again.
