Default 2012 189 FDS Bunk problem(help!)

Upon further examination, found screws on one side of bunk bed support backing out and stripped(not catching stud). Bought this 2012 trailer because of the Bunk. Does anyone have any mods to make bunk a sturdy option for an adult male?

Where(and what) are the studs in the wall that the rail supports are supposed to screw into? Any help or knowledge would be greatly appreciated! Love the trailer and want to make the Bunk a permanent viable bed.

Thanks in advance

The studs should be aluminum on a 2012 model. They probably missed the studs when they installed. Try to find studs with a stud finder. Then drill through the bracket and stud with a pilot drill a little smaller than the screw diameter. I would use at least a #10 sheet metal screw.
