Evening all,
So finally saved up enough money for some new interior cabinets, but they require bolting to the floor. The problem I have is that I have is my bus has welded-on belly pans so I can't access the underneath to fit retaining nuts. Anyone got any clever ideas to get round this ? I thought maybe Rivnuts as the bolts are only 6mm, but am concerned they might just pull through the floor in the event of a sudden stop. I really want to avoid the expense and ballache of cutting the pans off if I can.

The load of a sudden stop is unlikely to pull out rivnuts I’d have thought.
You can also fix to the sides of the van too, and use the bulkheads.
Don’t overthink it or over engineer it. No need. :)

Just a point about self-tappers, at least Dormobile fitted all their cabinets to the floor using them. Probably others too.
I'm actually going to be pilot drilling several holes in my new floor today to achieve the same thing. 😓
