THAT is a SUPER "report" RB! I've caught flak (not that it made any difference
) because I used (2) 10-32 S/S screws/locknuts on my Scamp's closet to secure it when the alum. rivets gave way and caused internal leaks! I was told how my Scamp
was going to crack, yada yada.... yawnnn... and after several thousand miles and years, it still looks the same and is still "tight"..and NO side affects on the shell!
I feel the closet contributes to some stability while traveling (especially with my A/C on top!) and feel that with the added stability, it may prevent other problems from other areas in the future.
Hearing from you NO rivets??? YEAH!!!
For once, I sense a real Fiberglass RV "HERO" here
. Thanks for your "bravery" to post an "anti-rivet" post!!! Never liked them never will regardless of the "purists" posts.

5 years with Stainless screws, thousands of miles. Never inside no leaks, no cracked fiberglass, but nothing stock either.
