Finding Outside Studs

What is the best way to find studs behind the exterior aluminum siding?
I have a quality electronic stud finder and it does not work on aluminum siding.

Take a peak at the outside of your RV after a heavy dew. You can see the difference in the condensation.

If you have one with the corrugated siding, it just push on it gently. You can use the stud finder on the inside...
