Hanging Pictures in RV

So my wife wants to hang a picture on the wall of our bedroom in our HR Admiral. I suggested using Command Strips ... but they completely failed due to the texture of the wallpaper. How do you hang stuff on this textured wallpaper? Pound nails into the wall?

Thanks for your advice!

Betty uses velcro instead of command strips. They seem to stick better

The strips have worked over 3 years for us

Maybe my wife is not using enough Command Strips. I assume your RV has a similar textured surface as our 06 HR. I never noticed it was textured until my wife pointed this out. ;-)

X2. Command makes a picture hanging system, its heavy duty velcro. We use 6 on a larger picture, 2 on each side and one on top and bottom.

I too use the Command Strips with Velcro. Make sure to clean the surfaces with alcohol before installing the strips. Then let the Command Strips sit with no weight on them for 12x24 hrs before hanging anything.

Of course! I think we were too much in a hurry ... we have the alcohol onboard (with a complete medical kit) already.

Thanks everybody ... feeling sort of dense here!

Velcro, but long strips of it all around the frame

Velcro style Command strips for us and our rig has wallpaper that feels like pebbly vinyl. Our photos are 5x7 in light weight frames. I've cut the strips in half lengthwise so there's one strip on each of the four sides of the frames, but our frames are narrow. I do wait overnight before actually hanging the pictures. Works great. Only had one side strip come loose one time. Hasn't happened again.
