Attaching pictures, etc to the wall of the RV

My "interior decorator" has asked me to hang up some camping themed pictures in the RV. I KNOW these are thin hollow walls. Has anyone had luck with the small commmand strips. Or....????

command strips work good for us only for keys and lightweight items, we have used a few push pins for some pictures.

Here's a recent thread that might have some good suggestions, I found it searching "hanging pictures" 😊

My buddy have some Navy plagues, that look fairly heavy, hung with command strips. New camper so I don't know how it will hold up for the long haul.

Scotch has some heavy duty Velcro that we cut and hang with. A real thin amount holds a lot. Holds up to heat well too. Got ours at target or Wally World. Have in clear and black.

We use Command Strip hooks all over the place- from pictures to towel racks and more. All works well.

The only thing that does NOT work well for us is the Command Strip Velcro when it's on an interior wall. The walls have so much give, that you can't really push to make solid contact with the velcro. That stuff falls during travel pretty regularly.

Screws also work. We have a coat rack, a double towel bar hung, and a small fish bowl with screws. Just keep them short, use anchors, and you should be good.

DW hung a wall clock in our trailer a year and a half ago with command strips. It's still there. No problems. I told her it wouldn't hold. Wrong yet again.

Nice idea! Never thought of that and here I was holding back because of the thought of having to take them down every time we move - now I might just put up some pictures - woot woot!
