The only problem with that install is where my crapper will be located



You can barely see it (just behind the fridge). And I have a built in foot rest too.

Come to think about it, tis not a problem for us. Just need to put a big "STAY BACK- DO NOT FOLLOW TOO CLOSE" sign on the back of the bus.

This was Clints great grandmothers pie safe. We plan to take it with us. My problem is I don't want to put holes in it but I need to secure it to the side of the bus. I can handle putting angle iron brackets on the legs but I'm not sure about securing it from the top.
My original thought is to strap it to the raceway with toggle bolts. Would putting a toggle in there create a problem any wires that may be in there? Does anyone have any ideas on what we could do?

I was surprised that no one had anything to add about how to mount this in the bus.

I brought the thread back in the event that for some reason people didn't see it.

I really could use ideas on how to attach this without putting many holes in it.

I can tell you that I had a dresser my wife picked out sitting on the driver's side wheel well. It lasted there for several miles, almost to the destination. It fell during a turn and isn't pretty but I told her I would rebuild it. that piece you have is too nice to let anything happen to it.

I have opened up and ran more wiring in my raceways and a toggle in my mind is possible if you mark the hole you want! for the toggle on the raceway cover and the the wall just above or below remove the raceway look at and inspect the wiring in the area you would like a toggle then move it out of the way so that the toggle or bolt does not rub?
If you are going to go through the effort to do that I would recommend a cap nut and stick a stud through the raceway. Either way you need to protect the wire from rubbing.
How about instead of angle iron legs? Build a full stand. Anchor to the floor and and some through bolts in the bottom of the cabinet. Even if the front stand piece is flat bar
No need to anchor to the race way.
Love the piece my texas family has a Hoosier cabinet I wanted to put in mine? But I am not there.

IMO

Nothing you do to secure that cabinet from the bottom will do any good. Leverage will tear it loose.

Stop dragging your feet and just drill some holes in the right place. Measure 3 times, and drill once.

Holes in fine wood can be filled one day if you move back into a house.

The damage that piece will suffer from falling, ect will be far worse than a few #14 holes to properly secure it to the wall.
