I'm going to build shelves/work benches in my enclosed trailer this weekend. I was wondering what kind of screws i want to use to screw into the wall studs and floor joist.

Oh yea, i will post pics when i am done!

I use the self taping sheet metal screws with the hex heads, be sure to hit the metal support ribs. Shelves across the front is good where you can wedge the shelf from one wall to another and support with legs attached to the floor and wall. Wood to wood types of things work themselves loose. I like to use angle brackets to attach wood to wood.

If you have plywood sides inside (which I highly recommend) use sheetrock screws and PL400 construction adhesive.
