Fastening Fixtures to Floor?

I'm curious as to what methods people are using to fasten their "furnishings" to their plywood floor.

I'm particularly concerned about my Norcold AC/DC refrigerator, which, at about 75#, is no lightweight. I'm thinking it should probably be through bolted. I'd hate to have it break loose in a panic stop or crash.

How about the other fixtures, bed bases, etc? I don't think they're as susceptible to breaking loose. "L" brackets and screws? How about threaded inserts in the plywood floor?

I should probably add that this is a minimal build and I'd like to have the flexibility of removing things for hauling or passengers.

I installed l track width wise and used the stud mounts to attach the cabinets. The fridge will be bolted to the cabinet base and sandwiched in there.

My bed frame is done via L brackets. Thinking the cabinets and other fixtures will be the same with some also attached to the floor, anchored to the bed, and or the ceiling.

Nothing says flexibility and easy removal like L-track. I also need to be able to haul things - and passengers - and the L-track lets you put things where you want, when you want. As I build it out, I can move elements around to accommodate my needs. Im building a sink module now that will be firmly attached yet easily removable.
