Are there better spots to drill than others?
Oh yeah! You need to find where the aluminum frame members are on your unit. Easy, right? Not so fast. I'm a loyal FWC customer (two new Hawks in three years) BUT it drives me nuts they can't (won't) include a framing diagram of where the aluminum members are. (I've been told they had someone who was going to do it in AutoCAD and then they quit.)
Anyway, I'm redoing the inside of my brand new Hawk Flatbed model (yes, I know that is weird) and sometimes you can assume that where FWC's screws are there will be a "stud" in the same line. BUT not always! Sometimes it is a horizontal line! So I've been reduced to tapping with a hammer! Seriously!
OK, rant over. FWC still makes great bombproof campers. I'm already planning my next FWC build/purchase (One ton "chassis cab" with a Grandby on an aluminum flatbed with a shovel box and a bed mounted 50 gallon fresh water tank, batteries mounted down low in a composite box,etc but I digress) IF Stan will sell to me after this post!)
BUT I don't know why such a great company can't include a framing diagram since they have to know most of us delight in modifying our campers. And don't even get me started on their crappy drawers!
