Coleman lantern 202rdwe rear ladder install

I知 installing a rear ladder and need the distances between studs from the right rear corner of the trailer. Does anyone have the framing specs for this trailer. On another note, I知 attaching a tv to the wall near the bedroom. The shower wall faces the bed, but I知 guessing that痴 probably not a good position due to the width of that wall. Screw length options is also a question. Thanks for your help.

Best option is to use a really good stud finder since the companies are keeping the plans of how to build anything like that a state secret and you have as much luck in finding that as they had with Trump's tax returns.

Agree with Frank. Even if you had the plans there is no guarantee they were followed so a stud finder is easy to use and reliable.

In my Voltage there was a sticker that said 杜ount tv here for a bedroom tv. Turns out it was actually in between the studs and off by several inches. My tv would have been in the floor after my first trip had I not used a stud finder.

As far as wall thickness goes I can稚 tell you on your model but likely as thick as a 2x4, so 4 inches. A stud finder will confirm the width of the studs so if 2 then the thickness will be 4. And you don稚 need to put a screw very deep into a solid stud for it to hold.

Good luck.
