Wall Mountings

Any experience out there at how to mount light objects (small mirror) to the interior wall of my Cardinal 30RKLE so that the mirror won't vibrate loose during travel. I've got multiple types of wood screws and anchors at home, but am unsure if they will work on the thin walls of the 5th wheel. Thanks!

My initial thought would be to use velcro or liquid nails and forget about making holes.

There is a special glue for mirrors. Liquid nails may eat the coating. I would look at using the 3m double sided foam tape made for mounting mirrors also. Apply it to the edges of the mirror, peel the cover off the other "sticky" side, and press on the wall, and you are done. Just make sure you get it straight and level. Also if you ever want it off, you can slide a piece of fishing line behind the mirror, and use it like a saw to cut through the foam and remove the mirror.

I purchased my camper used and the lady had velcro up for her pictures. She said they held great and I was also able to remove them very easily when I purchased with out damaging the walls.

3m

We have used the 3M removable tape for all of our pictures and they are still hanging. We picked them up at Lowes for 2.99 for 4.
