wall anchors, yes or no?

New to owning a class A motor home. Any tips for hanging pictures, key chain holders in the walls, should I use straight #6 5/8s wood screws or use wall anchors with them?

We use 3m contact strips, won't damage walls and can be removed without damaging wallpaper. They make many different kinds with hooks and some specific for hanging pictures. Can get them at Wally World or any home store.

Pictures would be best with sticky back Velcro , unless you plan to take them down before driving.

another vote for the 3m holders. We use the heaviest duty ones to hang robes and pajamas on in the bedroom. We use the ones with velcro to hold our doorbell ringer and switch, smoke detector in the bedrooom. We use the ones with hooks to hold keys. We have them everywhere and they work great. When you take them off no damage to the walls.

We've used both wall anchors and the 3M holders to munt all kinds of things to the walls in our 2001 and 2013 motorhome. The largest 3M holders are rated for 15 lbs. That may seem like quite a bit, but if your picture weight 5 lbs. and you hit a bump in the road I'm sure there's more than 15 lbs. of force on the holder.

We use this type of wall anchor:

Just be sure to drill a 1/16" pilot hole before drilling the full size hole, to make sure you don't run into a support.

I use the Command Picture Hanging Strips. So far nothing has fallen off my walls, and we live in the Mohave Desert. I have had Velcro products come unstuck, but not the 3M strips.

You bet! We use the Command velcro strips at the bottom of pictures to keep them from swinging and marking the walls. Not big pieces, just enough to keep them from swinging.
