"Best" really depends on what your trying to attach. And to what type of surface. More info would be most helpful, besides all creative ideas for things like counter extensions are valuable. You may be a rookie, but you may be a rookie with a really neat new approach.
When you can get to both sides, but one side is hidden (like inside a cabinet) then stainless bolts/machine screws and washers can work to attach brackets or braces. When the back side is hidden but not accessible (like where a fridge
is under the cabinet) then maybe rivets.
People use epoxy or marine adhesive for some things, lots of products and people will share what product works and how to use it if an adhesive seems appropriate for the task at hand. And as Tom pointed out there are some double sided tapes strong enough to mount a solar panel
on the roof.
Sometimes people use snap caps that hide the head of the fastener if it would show. There are times using fiberglass cloth and resin to attach wood to inner walls or floor may be the way to go. Probably not in this case, used more for stuff like bunk or AC mounting.
Double wall trailers there are an assortment of hollow wall fasteners people have used. Some good, some not so much.
So describe what you have in mind, maybe even a picture of where you want to put it and pretty soon people will either be providing links to a thread on someone else who did something like it, or all excited to be helping you create a new modification. It's just that kind of place, how cool is that.
