    There are industrial strength 2-comp. adhesives available from 3M that would do the job. Stronger than welds.

    You would need to contact a local 3M supply house to get your hands on the the stuff. Describe the application and the types of surfaces to be bonded to them and they ought to be able to recommend a product.

    You don't find it at your local Lowes or Home Depot.

    FYI - In the automobile industry, many body welds are being replaced by adhesives.

    if your enclosed trailer has very thin plywood
    on the inside chances are there are ribs to
    support the enclosure that you can use self
    tapping sheet metal screws to attach mounting
    brackets. look for where boards are attached to ribs
    or use stud finder

    I have screwed strapping to the inside walls of my trailers then I screw the hangers or wood shelfs onto the strapping and into the walls. This has worked well for me. I have had this set up for 3 years now in one trailer.
