Tips for Installing E-Tracks in an Enclosed Motorcycle Trailer

Question:

I have a united motorcycle trailer with a finished interior. I want to install an Etrack on the walls and need to know the deepest size screw I can use and not go thru the exterior skin of my new trailer.

The E-Tracks, like # E19148, is 12 gauge steel that is 2.5mm thick. What most people do is to use a piece of wood length wise inside the trailer, mount it to the wall framing (like the studs in a house), and then attach the E-Tracks to it. So you would add 2.5mm to the thickness of the wood and as long as you stay within that range you know it will not be going through the trailer wall.

I also recommend that you contact the trailer manufacturer to determine the capacity the walls and framing of the trailer can handle. I have included a link to a video review of an E-Track system for you.
