Hanging pictures on walls??

Does anyone hang pictures in frames on the walls in their travel trailers? Iíve seen it done, but just curious how people anchor them so they arenít falling off. I believe all the walls in my 2017 bullet are aluminum frame. Do I just find the studs, drill a hole, and run the screw through the picture frame? Any advice is appreciated.

This what we used. Over 5,000 miles so far and our pictures remain where we hung them.

I use velcro and some other type of adhesives and try not to put holes in the wall.

Yep, 3m hangers and just buy the cheap (but light) plastic picture frames with plexiglass or acrylic glass so that if does fall we don't end up with shards of glass everywhere.

I don't like to put hole in the walls. So we attached all our pictures using Velcro. It's strong and it works, have not had any pics fall yet.

Y tube had a video on a good way to do it. If memory serves me, they recommended attaching hook etc. using pop rivets.

I guess I'm the exception, but I have put holes in the walls and I've never gone through. I added a plastic mirror (Tap Plastics) below the medicine cabinet for our younger campers to see themselves, a full-length mirror in the master and two very carefully placed hooks for pictures and/or wall hangings in the living area. The mirrors were screwed in place. The pictures are removed during transit. I installed towel bars in the bathroom as well, again with no problems. Thought, planning and careful measurements are critical, but the end results are really worth it.

Depending on weight, I either use 3M double sided hanging tape or 3M automotive double sided trim tape.

I've used the 3M Command strips in the past but never in an RV. The above Command link shows the different kinds of surfaces it can be applied to but none are papered surfaces like found in most RVs. I don't like drilling mounting holes either but which is the lesser evil? Can the Command strips or velcro or tapes be removed without damaging the paper in any way?
