If I get a chance I'll try to hot glue a rare earth magnet to the top and bottom of my old closet door and then temporarily tape a piece of steel to the inside of the cabinet (both of these things on the side away from the hinges) and see how that holds. Actually could maybe do it in a few spots on the way down and see if that, combined with the spring hinges, feels like it would have enough strength.
It might be a while as I am just starting to primer all my cabinets to do a color change.
Maybe you could tape some on and see if it works/helps. Know any one with some old computer hard drives. I love the magnets in there.
As far as the screws are concerned, I was thinking rivets. I usually put a small dab of epoxy in the hole and then use an appropriate sized aluminum rivet. Have never had those come loose on other projects. Never tried it on a trailer though.
