Smile What is the best way to hang pictures?

Just picked up my 2013 V-Lite 30WRLTS. I want to make it homey by hanging
family pictures. I am looking for the best way to do that. Nails? Screws? Velcro?
What has worked for you? I am loving my rig, I still have some tweaking to do, but I am looking forward to easing into the RV lifestyle.

We are avid users of Command Strips. They are awesome for hanging things that you may want to take down at some point. We use them to hang the baby monitor camera to the ceiling and cabinets in the TT so we can keep an eye on the baby when he is napping. We also use them all over the house for posters, towel hangers, etc. They hold great.

While pricey, I have found nothing better (yet) to hang photos.

Best Ever Picture Screws

A ball of museum putty at each lower corner keeps the photo straight and on the wall while traveling.

"Museum Putty" - also available as "Craft Tack" at your local arts and crafts store, if that is more convenient. It is what we use and find it to be quite satisfactory for pictures in our trailer.

P.S. - also works for your home if you have rambunctious kids running around and shaking the pictures all askew on your walls !! LOL

Velcro worked for me!

We just got our 2013 Roo home and I also wanted to hang pictures. I used velcro strips on the top and bottom of the pictures and it worked great. We took our maiden voyage this weekend and everything is still hanging! Good luck!

+1 the command strips. DW is always trying to "pretty up" the inside of the camper and we've used them to hang everything from pictures, to our weather station clock.

Command strips for me also. They have so many uses. I just put up my key holder with them, use them for hanging photos, a command hook for the dog leash, another hook for pot holders, one for towels... Endless uses and they can be moved at aytime with no damage
