We’ve used the Command Strips Velcro picture hangers both in the camper and at home. Never had a picture fall!

I have not had good luck with those.

My daughter prints pictures on aluminum. She did these for us. We used the velcro command strips. I like the clean look of no frames.

Let me know if you are interested. She can ship and does 5x7 or 8x10

For heavier items I'd prefer an aluminum stud behind or if there's acess, a wood backer. Pop rivets or Molly's have worked well for me when there's no alternative, but they're not removable without damage. I've had some luck with command strips on smooth areas for medium weight things.

The only thing with dualock (another name for that item) is I often find the interlocking hold stronger than the hold of the adhesive to the wall or item you are trying to attach. We also use it at work to connect a multitude of things, you hair never know which bond is going to be the weakest when you try to remove it. Be very careful with painted surfaces because it will likely take the paint off unless it's like an automotive level finish. One way you can help the adhesive work a little better is to briefly heat it with a lighter or heat gun so it softens up a bit.

We also use command strips and hooks.

One cautionary note. Make sure ANYTHING you hang above a slide out is very secure. We hung a small framed picture above a slideout that bounced off landing on top of the slide while we were traveling. We didn't notice and slid the slides out. When the slide was almost fully extended the fallen picture made contact with inside of an 8 foot piece of molding disassembling it and letting it fall to the floor putting a nice dent in the floor and breaking a chunk of the molding. Nothing that couldn't be fixed with some bigger finish nails and glue, but easily avoided if we had known. Happy trails

I posted this a couple of times on threads about wall anchors:

A well nut may also work. It's a rubber piece, with a lip, that has an enclosed nut within the rubber. You insert the well nut into a small, drilled opening in the wall. As you tighten a machine screw in the threads, the rubber on the well nut, on the inside of the wall, will compress and expand against the wall and the larger lip of the nut, on the outside of the wall, holds it in place. They can be removed anytime by simply loosening the machine bolt. I've used them and they hold picture frames and other objects that aren't real heavy:

They can be found on eBay and Lowes sells's a link:

And you can remove it (carefully) without damaging the wall!

Command strips or any Command stuff never worked for us in any R/V. Maybe we are too dumb to use it correctly.

It would hold stuff if you never moved the R/V but 3 miles down the road and it was on the floor.

Wall anchors and 3M Extreme tape works for us.

We have put up many things in our tt. Depending on the weight I've used molly bolts, screws, command hooks, velcro, etc. One thing that I did, which wasn't mentioned, is on 2 open areas on our walls I put up small permanent shelves (only about 2" deep). We have different pictures which we can place on the shelf with a small dab of museum putty. We have to take them down to travel but it only takes a couple of seconds to put them up/down and we can change out pictures as often as we like since the picture/photo isn't permanent (only the shelf is).

Has anyone found anything that will work on wood? We have 2 places that we are trying to hang a picture. We have used command strips, double face tape but neither worked. Once it got hot in the camper, both fell off. We were wondering about industrial strength velcro? 2 " wide. supposed to hold 15 lbs. Pictures weight less than 2 lbs. We don't want to put holes in these surfaces. Command strips are still holding those items on the walls but we are having no luck with wood surfaces.

I have command strips attached to wood in two places. In pantry for lights. And under sink. What I do is to use E6000 glue from Dollar General. Put it on wood and strip and Let it get tacky for a little while. Its held for over a year now.

Jhudson13- are we talking wood with laminate? The problem is keeping the 2 lbs stationary while in motion when hot. We only put up small photos and used the industrial Velcro at each corner and also used 3m adhesive promoter with it. Largest item is a stuffed animal at about a pound and had to use 4 one inch squares with adhesive promoter to get to stay in our heat- 121 in storage.
