Harbor Freight carries a riv-nut that can be installed with a standard pop-rivet gun. They come in6:32, 8:32 and 10:32 sizes. They install just like a pop-rivet.

Hi Laura;
How are you going to install a stud in the thin aluminum wall, having no access to the back side of it? "Boatdoc"

I saved this thread as I liked the original post about the tube system.

For my trailer, I had to create a bath. It has a shower pan, just not any method to contain the water. I thought I could figure out a way to hang a curtain. The first trip with the curtain idea worked OK, but, a better methods was needed.

My method is 4 hooks that a curtain could hang from. The door side is wood and hooks are no problem. The skin side is aluminum and a good anchor was a challenge. Also, my towel racks are very low and not adequate to dry towels. There is also needs for hanging swim suits and other items.

I recalled this thread and bought a few pieces. It has worked great. I used rivet nuts to anchor the t-bars that hold the rods. I purchased the S hooks and crimped them just enough that they will not come off the bar.

Do not buy the plastic connectors. They were not adequate in maintaining the bar being level if weight was added. I used a wood dowel and epoxy.

Here are a couple photos. You have to imaging the curve of the front end cap. I apologize for the fuzzy photo.
