Enclosed Trailer Setup

I just put my first enclosed trailer into service and have some questions. I need to get my small stuff (trimmer, blower, etc.)off the floor and onto the walls. How do I know where to mount racks and shelves? Are there studs under the wood paneling? I don't think the paneling itself would support racks and shelves. It is only about 1/8" thick, it looks like luan.

Use self taping screws. Screw them in to the wall studs. I used 3/4 plywood to mount my racks on to. Run the across 2 or more studs per attachment point.

There are metal Z studs in the walls...
Sorry. Should have said self drilling/tapping screws. Like the ones used all over an enclosed trailer.

I was just explaining to Statman the shape and material of the wall studs... What you said made sense EMJ.
