    Default Trailer Dressing Room Organizing--Using HD Magnetic Hooks Instead of Drilling?

    http://www.organizedbarn.com/products.html#trailer

    I'm asking Santa Claus for the trailer DR system this year BUT... I am reluctant to drill into the steel framing to hanging this thing so was considering uber heavy duty magnetic hooks... like 57 - 75 pound holding strength.

    This way I can remove/move it anytime I need to or if, God forbid, I sell the trailer, want to keep it.

    Anyone tried it/done that? How'd it go? Or do I just suck it up and drill away?

    Thanks!

    Is your trailer steel or aluminum? I had a great magnetic backed mirror that I always kept in my dressing room. It took me a minute or two of picking it up off the floor the first time I tried to put it up in my new aluminum trailer before I figured out what was going on, DUH!!!

    Magnets will be fine if you never hit a bump.
