Mounting on walls

Have a mirror to mount on the wall. Any suggestions on mounting hardware for hollow walls?

most hollow wall anchors are meant for 1/2 inch drywall. Depending on how heavy the mirror toggle bolts would work in thin paneling.

Probably 5 or s pounds. I thought plastic inserts would be ok... so we can remove for travel?

5 or 6 lbs...no brainer...Command Velcro Strips. Been using them for years in our rig and have yet to have one fail, including an xtra mirror in bathroom.

Agree 100% Command Strips and/or Hooks are the way to go.

For light stuff like pictures use regular Command Strips. For heavier use the Command Velcro Strips. I even used them to hold two spice racks to a wall, and with spice containers haven't failed yet. Won't damage walls, wall paper, vinyl, wood.
