73 1300 Trillium Hanging Hooks

I am trying to find a way to hang 2 hooks on either side of my door so that I can hang a rod across for a screen. Problem is, I cannot find anything that will stay stuck to it. I don't want to uses something that can damage the interior.

I've tried the 3m stick and release as well as duck tape and another strong tape. Suggestions would be great

...My suggestion is....slash a short line of interior, slide in a piece of wood, glue it to fiberglass shell(resin it), the close the gap with resin/glue. After all, using proper length of screw, you could install all kinds of fancy hooks you want. That is what I did to my Trillium...

The picture stops short of the front of the trailer, but can you use a tension rod between the cabinet and something at the front? OR, once you figure out how to use a hook for one side, use one of these mounted to the cabinet, they make these in plastic as well as wood:

Hi
Try this:
Outside above the door you should have an aluminum drip stop held on to the trailer with several pop rivets. Drill out one rivet from each end, and drill all the way through to the interior. fill the holes with clear silicone, and then insert 1" long stainless steel screws. Put nuts on the screws and tighten...the screws should stick out of the nuts...if not you might need 1 1/2" long screws. Now get some streachy spring curtain rod, cut to length, screw in an eye hook into each end, install curtain, put eye hooks one the screws and hold in place with self locking nut (the ones with nylon inserts)

Welcome to FGRV Pam,
This is more than you asked for, but the 1300 is very well suited to what many call the screen door mod. Oft cited is Gord100's description and plans that seemed to disappear from the web for a while. The good news is, I just found out where his website has moved to:
Gord100's Trillium Trailer Webpage

Here is another nice example:
Screen door for my 1975 1300 Trillium
Some people choose to install a folding screen door like on the Scamp rather than deal with the single large door.

If you don't want a door - the frame works better for your original plan since the body curves out from where the screen will hang and you will end up with big gaps.
