I was thinking about removing the black plexiglass panels off the refer doors and replacing them with a clear, matte finish plexiglass. I could then make a paper backing and stick the photos to it with a light coating of non-permanent photo mount and put the plexi back over.

The bonus is that you could use a type of dry erase marker or grease pencil that would wipe off easily for quick messages or menus.

Hope you got your digital frame, MM! Another option (I just got Tony for Christmas) is with www.shutterfly.com, you can upload your pics and create a Memory Book, I made one for us of our 2007 travels, and it is gorgeous. They take the pics you choose, the album and colors you choose, you enter text, and then it is printed like a real book, and it is beautiful!!! I am so happy with the way ours turned out. I expect we'll eventually have a library on the coach (one book for each year).

I like the digital picture frame idea. We got my mother-in-law one for Christmas and loaded it with lots of her old, cherished photos that she had had stuffed in a drawer. She loved it and her grandchildren immediately started buzzing about adding photos of their children to it, which she will also love.

Creative Memories has two sizes of picture frame that are magnetic and designed to swap out photos. It also has a ribbon across it and you can hang pictures or other ornaments on it. That's the closest thing I've seen to what the original poster was seeking.

I haven't put my idea in place yet, but the inspiration came from the magnetic photo sleeves on the filing cabinet in our home office. I'm looking for some type of panel, grid, etc that the magnetic sleeves will hold to, then I will mount it on a bare wall that we have next to the dining area and put my photos in the magnetic sleeves. This way the photos can easily be changed out when "Grands" get new school pix, etc.

Costco has a magnetic whiteboard/bulliten board framed. I have only seen it once but it should be perfect.

I have a degree in Interior Design so I am way too picky about the way the inside of our RV looks. Right now, I'm looking for inexpensive black frames with plexiglass. When I get all the ones that I need, AFTER I paint the walls, I'm going to velcro the frames to the wall in attractive groupings. I have several 8 x 10's of dramatically beautiful photos shot in Alaska that I'm having framed to put in the larger spaces on the wall. As long as you have attractive frames and matts, I think it adds to your RV's ambience and makes it look warm and like a home . . . which in our case, it is. I'm also making a french bulletin board - you take a piece of lightweight wood, put batting on it, upholster it with a piece of cloth to coordinate with your RV, then criss cross ribons across it and staple them in. You can glue buttons or whatever you want to cover the staples, then tuck photos and other mementos in the ribbon. That's easy to change out. We're considering getting a large digital photo frame too - since we have over 5 thousand photos . . . we'd like to be able to have a running slide show . . . . aren't we all lucky? To have so many memories? So many photos? So much to cherish!!

I love your grouping of photos plan, Gracie'sMom, I do that in our stick house all the time. After you're done decorating your RV, you should post pics here!

I am in full agreement about the interior design of motorhomes and RV's in general. They are far too impersonal without choices to customize. This is, after all, our home and should be a comfortable refuge. For me that is being surrounded by all my stuff and seeing my favourite photos. One thing I have found in 90% of all motor coaches & trailers is the use of mirrors, and I understand that it is designed to make the space look larger, but I'd rather see my family photos, than to look at myself when I walk into my bedroom.
We have a large mirror covering most of the back wall of our bedroom (in addition to mirrors on the closet doors)so I intend to use the mounted mirror as a base for a photo collage.
When I was working, I had my filing cabinets covered with family photos. I used fridge magnets glued to the back of the photos so they would stick to the filing cabinets. Since I printed them from digital, I didn't worry about destroying the photos when changing them. For older or non-digital photos, I mounted page protectors onto fridge magnets and slid the photos inside the page protectors.
The magnetic sheets that fridge magnets are made of are available at craft stores in larger sheets and can be cut to size.
I will create my magnetic photo board that will hold my pictures and cover the large mirror in the bedroom. Get a sheet of galvanized steel cut to size at a roofing supply company. The sheet is very thin and not heavy. Use lengths of moulding or picture frame cut to size to frame and finish the edges. Since the mirror is well secured to the wall, simply hang the photo board on the mirror with picture wire.

In the living room, the computer runs the photo slide show when it defaults to the screen saver and I am on the lookout to add a digital frame. I have also chosen a few of our favourite framed photos to mount on the walls using the 3M hangers that have the release feature and come off without damaging the wall. I have used these at Christmas for hanging garlands and have never had a problem with residue.
The RV manufacuturers would do well to ask and listen to their buyers for design ideas. I appreciate that they decorated the coach with framed art, but it would be nice if they made it easier for us to change out the pictures.
