Hello, sorry for the title but it made you read it! I have got a new Chausson 650 transit based mh. Bought late this year and I want to sort out the garage. We have only used the mh once so far (200 miles) and my chairs table ect fell over with a bang. My question is, is it ok to screw some hooks/brackets or something into the sides to fasten straps to? Is the wall of the garage strong enough and would it affect the warranty.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Best to spread the load with long strip which has a channel to take moveable eyes. Fiamma and Thule do them. I have one on back wall and two on the floor. I assume the floor being thicker ply can take the biggest load, while back wall steadies bikes and holds chairs and table.

I had extruded aluminium captive tracking all over the load area in my Amarok and will be fitting at least two lengths into the MoHo garage shortly. This is the best value I’ve found to date and a couple of products you might want to consider - both are 3m length and the first will need countersunk fixing holes drilled through the slot ( but has cap ends available). The second, with the wider flange at either side, is drilled and ready for installation as it comes:

Bevel edge aluminium captive track

Flanged aluminium captive track

Both take a selection of moveable fittings such as the Single stud.

The back wall of my garage was bare, so I stuck on ( with adhesive) two wooden battens the full width of the wall, then covered the wall and battens with campervan wall carpet. A few hooks screwed into the battens and my chairs and stuff are now secured. I also have fiamma rails on the floor for securing the scooter.

Choose reinforced comers and make some home made rings for bungy hooks
