Command strips and for heavier items, I use command velcro strips.

We use Velcro command strips for everything we hang picture wise. So far.......100% success over the past 5 years. We also have a long vertical mirror that we hung but did that with Gorilla tape.

We use Command strips for all lightweight things. For heavier things, one or more Command hooks (with a piece of picture wire attached to a frame, if needed) always do the job. I have a metal magazine rack hanging on 3 5# Command hooks and it hasn't fallen off yet, even when full of magazines. I can't remember how we ever camped before Command hooks were invented

Command strips are wonderful! Be sure you use the correct number of strips depending on the item you want to hang and be sure you use the correct size (weight the strip can hold). Everything on the walls in my TT are hung with Command strips and/or museum putty. Neither leaves marks on the walls and both can be easily removed, regardless of the temperature. I learned this when we had to strip my TT bare in February in Michigan as the insurance company totaled it. All the Command strips came off clean, not that it mattered as the TT was going to salvage, but I was still impressed. Thus far, I have only had 1 item come off the wall and that was because I did not use enough Command strips when I initially huge it. I even have a large piece of stained glass hung on the wall and it stays put. Happy hanging! I've made my TT my home on wheels, including wall decorations and pics of people and places I love!

Did you try cleaning the area with an alcohol swab and then applying the Command strip? My walls are relatively smooth but I've got the Command strips stuck to wallpaper, glass, cabinets, pretty much everywhere in the camper except the doors, which are too rough in texture for the Command hooks.

We use command strips to hold a wooden plaque, a wooden key holder and even the heavy duty stuff to hold the coat rack. No issues between 2 trailers in 4 yrs in NC heat and humidity and cold winters. Only issue was one that we placed up and then moved. Stuff works great!
