You asked: Do RV walls have studs?

Unlike houses where studs have a standard 16” on center interval, the studs in RVs don’t have regular intervals. The studs in RVs may not even run vertically–sometimes they’re horizontal. This is because of the way the plumbing and wiring are in the wall. The builders have to run the framing studs to accommodate them.
