Hanging pictures and racks

Wife and I just purchased a new toyhauler and want to hang some pictures, a small clock, and a few other accoutraments to give it a home feel. (Fishing rod holders...etc in the grage). I realize this is not about driving a nail into the wall so to the group I'm asking....what methods do any of you use to secure such items? 3M hooks and hangers?

For the clock and pictures, 3M Command metal loop hooks work well. If you want to do something more permanent, a stud finder will locate the aluminum studs. If the location and where you want to hang something permanently and is between studs, there are some screw in wall anchors from Home Depot or Lowe's that I'm using now. You do need to be careful in that there are several lengths, you'll need the shortest and/or a shorter screw then supplied (your walls are only ~1.5" thick) and are similar to these:

Stud Solver #7 x 1-1/4 in. Phillips Zinc-Plated Alloy Flat-Head Anchors with Screws

I have a strict no clock policy in the camper, but for some L shaped frames on shelves I used velcro and the 3M Command strips for the walls. I put up a set of the 3M Command wire hooks for hanging keys next to the control panel, these are on paneling. All of them seem to be holding well.

I too, had to hang an analogue clock. We also have quite a few pictures etc etc.

Command strips are AWESOME. The hooks work well, and they have the picture hanging command strips as well, which are a little thicker and you stick directly on the photo. We've also successfully removed the strips and moved a hook without any issue - the wallpaper/covering/whateveritis holds up just fine.

I've had to drive about 10 screws (key hooks, beer bottle opener etc) and I wince every time I do it.

Especially when we both saw it and thought how it would be nice in the RV.

Command Strips for us. Sometimes the velcro, sometimes the double sided sticky.

We have used the industrial Velcro with success. Had trouble finding the Command strips that would support the weight of a framed piece of artwork that we wanted to travel with. Have been over some VERY rough roads and it stays put.
