I will use stainless bolts either method which may help with the threading option.
I dunno if the hinges on our Scamp were threaded or not. If they were, a previous owner had drilled out the threads and used 1/4 - 20 cap screws and double nuts of a unknown quality. They worked just fine, but were rusted on the surface.
I replaced them with stainless fasteners of the same size, except instead of double nutting, I used stainless Ny-loc nuts. I also replaced all the hinge mounting bolts for the same reason.
