I'm looking at buying an enclosed aluminum trailer. It doesn't have any plywood on the walls or any type of attachment points. What's the right kind of fastener to use to attach stuff to the studs? I know you can use big self-tapping screws on a steel trailer, but for aluminum that seems like a recipe for corrosion.

I'd probably use large aluminum rivets.

Whenever I am attaching things to studs the first thing I do is grab the stud finder, point it at myself, and go "Beep! Found one!".

My wife hates that.

YMMV.
