Hanging pictures

My wife wants to make our class A pusher a little more homey by hanging some pictures but we aren't sure what the best way to do it would be. We think that just using regular hangers wouldn't work because it would be a source of rattling as you drive and there would be a possibility of it falling if you hit a good bump.

Has anyone tried to do this?

Try those "Command" brand hooks. Don't leave holes and I bet you can find a style that will work 😜👍🏻

I tried one of them in our rig on a varnished wall for a clothes hook. Wiped the wall down with an alcohol swab to. It came off within about 5 min. This was one of the large brushed nickle ones so lots of area to adhere.

Used a command picture hanger in our pusher with negative results. Worked well until removal. Once removed the hanger left a bubble in the wall board decorative paper cover.

3M Command Strips
All four corners of frame

Hung small, medium, large & heavy pictures using them.

Full Time traveled for 7 yrs. all over the USA..good roads (sorta) and lousy roads (which are most in US)
Not one fell down, came loose or presented an issue.

They worked for us.....sure beat trying to use screws/anchors/wall hangers etc

I don't know where you live but here where I am in the central valley of California I have seen 120 degrees inside my coach when it is stored next to my house.

Anything with adhesive backing falls off the walls in that heat. Believe me I know.

So use screws or whatever that actually clamp onto or into the wall surface.

We use the 3M picture hangers. Clean the wall, stick the hanger on and be done with it. If you want to remove, just pull the little tab under the hanger. They have been on the walls for almost 12 years and none of them have fallen off. http://www.amazon.com/Command-Large-...9HD87ZZAJPVS0E

You can get them on any big box hardware store.

I also agree on the Command Velcro strips. I've used them on everything from lightweight pictures to fairly heavy wood plaques. They don't move or rattle when traveling.

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

We used double sided tape in our first FW...mistake. had to use a knife to remove the frames containing family pix and left the rest.
Used sticky backed velcro on second FW (don't recall brand). that worked much better. still left velcro on the wall but was much cleaner and we got all our pix out.

I used these to hang 6 framed pictures from small, medium and large and have traveled extensively in 100 + weather last summer to 18 below this winter and everything in between and NO problems whatsoever. Bought them at an Ace Hardware and also Home Depot ... very inexpensive.
Hope that helps!
