I would like to attach two oil painting to the walls of my MH: one with a frame and one without. I would also like to be able to remove them if and when I sell the MH.
Has anyone found a solution that prevents the painting from movement and damage while driving?

I have used a 3M product. You can remove it from the wall by pulling on the tab that is part of the adhesive strip. The ones I use have a 3 lb. rating and have a locking feature similar to valcro. I generally will use a couple more than the picture weight dictates as a safety measure.

Thanks. Now that I think of it I have some velcro. Maybe I'll try one with the 3M and one with velcro.

Not just Velcro, use Industrial Strength Velcro. You can buy it at CW, Lowe's or Home Depot. I bought a 15 foot roll at Home Depot, and use it on lots of things in the RV.

Cut one tab of each, hook and loop for each corner of your picture. Put the soft, loop side on the picture, and use a staple at each end. Then put the hook side on the loop, peel off the adhesive cover, and place the picture on the wall. Press down, on each corner, then remove the picture from the wall. Add 2 staples to each piece of Velcro on the wall, then replace the picture. It will stay there for miles and months.

I hung a clock on one of the cabinent walls in our motorhome. Originally I tried velcro, but found that during hot weather when we wern't using the motorhome, the heat would cause the velcro adhesive to soften just a bit and it wouldn't support the weight of the clock. Bob's idea of staping the velcro would work, but I tried a slightly different approach.

I use a small nail or hook to hang the item on, just like hanging a clock or picture in the house, but then I also use a small piece of velcro at the bottom of the clock to stabilze it and keep it from swinging or bouncing. The hook holds the weight, and the velcro keeps it from moving.

We also used Velcro - our Tiffin came with a large painting held on with Velcro stapled to the wall. We had a framed oil painting that we wanted to hang, so we stapled 2" Velcro to the back and it's held fine for 5K+ miles over all types of terrain. This way when we sell the motorhome we replace our oil with a picture without damaging the wall.
