I would use 3M Scotch VHB Tape it will hold almost anything but air, smooth surfaces work best, be sure to clean both surfaces with alcohol before assembly. I have even attached my solar panels on to my TPO roof with this tape, two years and no problems.

Wall mountings

Two other thoughts on mounting things on the thin, hollow RV walls:
Pop rivets work great, so long as the item being mounted is not heavy or thick. I mounted a paper towel holder with 5/16 rivets, looks great and has held up well (see pictures).
Also, I used neodymium magnets to mount a shoe holder. Each magnet holds 6 pounds, so 18 pounds of shoes...should be enough...LOL! And it is easily removed, leaving just a small metal disc on the wall.

I've found that velcro and other forms of tape tend to loosen when your RV heats up from being parked outside with no A/C running.

Good idea about using magnets!

We just joined the FMCA and received the spiffy membership plate. Any suggestions as to how to mount it.

I had an adjustable shower head mount, mounted on the shower wall. Tech put a backing board behind the paper thin wall, to secure it. Its very solid.

Misc Compartments

This is a first post. Here are a couple of pics of a few of the additions I've made to an AXIS 25.3.


Attached are files of 2 sets of added drawers.


I've got a lot more additions installed.

Misc Compartments cont

Maybe a little more info
The center drawers on the Engine cover each glide on a 8" full Suspension drawer slide mounted to a center partition which is T-mounted to the "back" of the Eng cover. By the way, there is nothing maintainance wise to access in the Engine cover



The drawer mounted above the pass side speaker cab has a single 8" full susp slide under the main drawer. the second upper drawer slides on an 1/8" side piece on the left and the bottom drawer edge on the right. The top drawer front edge has a small lipe to alow it to be pulled out.

The top drawer does not come out when the bottom drawer is pulled open

Those look great! I see you've also installed a custom radio in there as well--nice!

Congratulations!
I epoxied the rear one to my rig, and drilled a couple of holes in the bumper, for mounting the front one.

Thanks for all the information. I found the recommended tape yesterday at Home Depot ... right there with all the other kinds of tape. Now why I never checked that out before is a mystery.
