Have been browsing and utilizing this great forum for a while. Have been RVing for a few years. Started out in a fixer upper Alfa Gold 40 ft. 5th wheel. After completed we used it for approx 1 year.
We then upgraded to a new Excel 36 ft. 5th wheel. Shortly after we purchased, they went out of business. Thought they were a well built unit. Started doing longer trips with frequent and short stay stops. Decided the 5th wheel wasnít our best decision. 2 years ago bought our first motor coach after a lot of research. Ended up with a 42í Country Coach DP. It has been a real learning curve. A lot more systems and components that need to be maintained. As far as the construction, I have been very impressed with the build quality, not to mention a great rig to drive, easy to setup and over all comfort level. We have been very happy with our move.
This forum has been great for finding solutions to issues or problems that arise from time to time. I also enjoy passing along tips I have learned that may help someone else on this forum.

Thank you!

I’m a 40 yr RVer whose gone from converting a van to owning several DPers. I’ve always hesitated attaching anything to the wall of my rig unless it is solid wood.
I’d like to add some hooks, holders, and such to walls, sides, and top of both the interior of the cabin and basement. I don plan to put heavy things up - pictures, in the cabin and fishing rods, and poles in the basement. Question is: how do I know where a “safe zone” is located and what to consider in choosing a length of the screws should be? I don’t want to create a problem by puncturing something.
I have an 08 Berkshire 36QS. DP
