"Tacky" lights on the camper

We camped in a pop up for 10-years and had some really fun "tacky" lights strung around the awning.

Now we have an a frame 192HW that doesn't have an awning. I'd love to put some on the outside of this camper as well.

But how???

We hang them off our awning, but you could clothes pin them to the rain gutter. For really tacky we back feed power through the seven pin connector and light up the clearance lights (in select crowds and friends if extra light is needed)

Use some Command hooks, they can be removed when not being used. You could stick those things anywhere you have a solid surface!

Rollumup Awning Party Light & Accessory Hold

Had these for years, attach your lights with the velcro strap. They slide into the awning track and rollup with the awning. Colors available. No grommets or clips

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't Jodilc say they DIDN'T have an awning? Not sure the sliding tabs will be of much use with no awning, just saying...

a few 2 inch screws and a couple of these and your all set for the party.
wont affect the width of the trailer at toll booths and you won't walk into them after a few drinks.
