I have had Dual Lock stick together so well that I NEVER was able to separate it. Be careful.

Hi All:

One thing to be a little cautious about when using the 3M Command product is that if you apply one of these devices (ie. small hook, velcro thingy, clothes hook, etc.) to your RV wall, be careful. If placed on interior wallpapered wall, and you start using that device repeatedly to hang something with a little weight, like a jacket or a weighty picture, etc., it can, over a period of time slowly pull out on the wallpaper causing a bubble in that wallpaper that slowly gets larger. While you can very, VERY, carefully remove whatever hanging device you might have been using from this wallpaper bubble, it'll be tough getting that bubble pressed back onto the wall since the wallpaper has already been stretched.

We think those 3M Command removable hanging devices are GREAT, but only for hard surfaces in your RV, like glass, ceramic, plastic, wood, metal, etc. etc.

We use Command Strips for almost everything. They have strips for picture frames as well as the hooks.

Steve is correct about the weight of objects causing the wallpaper to delaminate. We have had that problem with several things. While hanging things only on solid surfaces is best, it can be done on wallpaper surfaces if the object you're hanging is light and/or if you use several hooks/strips to distribute the weight. If you try the Command Strips on wallpaper, check frequently (especially if you store your RV in the hot sun) to make sure there is no delamination. If you catch delamination soon enough, the Command Strips can be removed and the wallpaper can usually be smoothed back into place.

HOW TO: Hang Things on RV Walls using Pop Rivets - YouTube

I did this with a wire shelf I put in the bathroom. Looks good, is permanent and is very strong.
