Just a thought, I've used a product called Caromel Colors in my home for some furniture that I wanted to refinish without a huge hassle. I have seen photos of kitchen cabinets that have been done without the antique glazing and they looked great so if you don't want an antique effect it is possible to do that with this product as well. It's not dirt cheap but it wouldn't take that much for the cabinets in a trailer. This stuff can be applied over anything and I mean anything and it does not rub or off flake off - it is possible to sand it off for different effects but that's about it.

You can check it out at:

Okay, here's the eyebolt installation sketch I promised:

All hardware is stainless--it costs more than plain steel, but in the very small quantities you need, the price difference doesn't amount to enough to worry about. The spacer is a piece of thick-walled aluminum tube but really could be almost anything un-rustable.

The point of the spacer in the "kitchen" portion of the sketch is to prevent squeezing the inner kitchen shell and the outer trailer shell together. Call me cautious.

I actually used acorn nuts on the inside to prevent having ugly threads visible--but I forgot that while I was drawing the picture.
