We just had new laminate flooring installed in about 1/2 of our house and we're not thrilled about moving the seven 6-foot high bookcases back into the library. I saw some one say elsewhere on the forum that their kitchen cabinets weigh a lot more and aren't a problem, but our cabinets are mostly on an exterior wall or coming from the ceiling.

Are there any limitations on adding bookshelves to the interior walls of an MH as long as we attach them to the studs?

If you are concerned about the weight, you could add a pier under it to support the weight. Greg.
