Question Strength of overhead cabinet to structure?

Hey guys I have a question about how strongly overhead cabinets are mounted to the structure. I have a 2016 Classic. I am looking to under-cabinet mount a computer monitor, under the cabinet above the dinette.

The computer monitor weighs 29 lbs. Does that sound like something that cabinet would be able to support? How exactly are those cabinets attached to the structure? I imagine they are attached to the ribs and not just the interior skin? Is it rivets or some sort of hook mechanism?

The weight will be removed/propped up during transit, so there won't be any shock loads. The cabinet will only have to support the weight of the monitor while static/camped.

It would be mounted to the bottom of the cabinet above her head:

I think you would be fine. Do remove it during transit though. Yes they are attached to ribs. I can easily see 30 pounds of stuff in the cabinet. No reason to think it would not hold. Assuming you dont currently carry 100lbs of china up there.
