Ok could be Pit Pal too. I have a door organizer that I have had up as long as I have had the trailer. Illinois roads and a hard closing of the door dismounted it. Fortunately car was not in there!

What is the best way you guys have found to securely mount these to the door? It's an older Haulmark trailer.

Are you talking the one that sits on the door and has the towel piece along with 2 compartments? I tool mine off. I think my door has some sort of inserts in it. Reason for it coming off was it was always looking for a fight with bodily injury and i don't drink either lol...

I agree, don’t mount it on the door unless you race a car that requires lots of maintenance every round. Mine is inside the trailer and has the triangle mount for my fuel funnel on it also. Works great like that!

Well another advantage is that the door will sag less if it doesn’t have that mounted. I don’t think I have any wall space though lol

Yours on 16" centers? On mine i was going to put up 2 more small cabinets. I don't know how and where the electric is plumed. I thought maybe a pilot hole, then use my lighted bore scope.

Yes I think so. Much of the 12 v wiring is under the diagonal panel between the wall and ceiling. 120v is trickier.

I don't think the side door has much inside of it, I believe it's wood fame inside and not very thick. The doors are very flimsy. The walls have the fence post studs usually 16" but the center is whe part the outer skin attaches to. If you can look at the inner screws or pull a lower piece of trim you can see how the studs are oriented. Might be able to look from underneath as the walls are hollow.

I used a half dozen self-tapping hex headed screws. My trailer door (20 year piece) has two metal studs in it but they're not 16" on center - just had to locate them. Three screws - top, middle and bottom - in each stud keeps it on there solidly. I like it on the door so I mostly keep spray cans of stuff I use frequently and a few tools - screwdrivers, spark plug stuff, wire ties, etc. Nice when you're in a rush. I also use the side of it to hold the extension pole for the Acurite weather station. A couple of 1/4" bolts and wingnuts does the trick. I gave up on the paper towel stuff and use a couple of cheap plastic spring clips to hold old kitchen hand towels on the bar.

I just drilled all the way thru the door and used Stainless carriage bolts. The 4 smooth SS heads on the outside look just fine and hasn't fell off since.

I can't mount anything on my door, it's more of an rv type door. I just mount it all inside. For my tools, I have them in a rolling cart that's tied down. If I need something more, I have a folding table I can set up to put stuff on...I'll roll the cart out if needed.....

I'm not big on drilling holes in stuff unless there's no way around it...
