Wood cabinets

When people are installing wood cabinets in their trailers how are they attached to the shell? I've been considering replacing my fiberglass cabinets with wood.

I am useing 1/4in philips head bolts and locking nuts. i am building my cabinets with 1 1/4 by 3/4 frames and covering the frames with 1/4 in bead board. t drilled through the 1 1/4 frame through the fiberglass installing the bolts through the glass, and the nuts are on the frame side. then i cover the frame with the bead board.

I have a hammer, nails and duck tape i can fix it.

I think Scamp just uses wood screws instead of rivets under those snap caps.

I know that's how Fiber Stream did it.
