Screw or Rivet

I would like to install a couple of shelves in the rear wardrobe on our 30' International. I am trying to find out the best way to attach the brackets on the Aluminum Wall.

I'm a rivet guy. They just don't loosen up, if done right.

I've used both methods but do prefer rivets if I'm not screwing through a double layer of aluminum.

I'll take the best of both choices and suggest Riv-Nuts. They've got a larger holding area than just rivets.

Thank you for the the input.
I decided to go with riveting. I completed the project Saturday. It was quick and the shelving is solid as a rock against the interior wall.
