What am I missing ????
Casita, and apparently also Scamp
uses acorn nuts on the exposed ends of pop rivets. Rivet is inserted from outside, helper holds acorn nut on rivet inside, and rivet is then set and acorn nut is held in place. It's just to give a finished look where the rivets can be seen. I don't actually agree with this method, but not getting into that discussion.
