This is what we use. They are very strong and even hold a clock to the wall.
Happy picture hanging!

I assume you've used it on the type of vinyl wallpaper used in the new TravelTrailers?!?!?! I know the 3M hooks wont stick for more than a few days. I'm also wondering if something that does stick to the vinyl wallpaper would be removable if we decide to sell the rig or change the decor.

Yes, these will stick for a few days, then fall off. I bought mine at Wal*Mart. It seems like nothing wants to stick to the vinyl wall paper the new TTs come with. Velcro will stick to the fake wood grain, at least nothing fell off that surface yet.

Of course we don't use any glass in the picture frames, just in case, we use the clear plastic that Walmart has to cover posters.
In what dept did you find clear plastic to cover posters at Wal*Mart? That would certainly help with the weight and mess of broken glass when they fall from the walls. I see posters in other stores but not in Wal*Mart and I've not seen the clear plastic you mention.

I would rather they be hung on the walls to save space on counters. No desks in TTs.

Well then I'd suggest a plain old screw or nail. I know some people say not to put screws or nails in the walls, but frankly our RV came equipped with lots of screws already (for the valences, for the cabinets, for the appliances etc.) all secured into the RV walls. So, I don't see it as a problem to add a few more. Just be aware of where you're putting the screw so it doesn't interfere or rupture anything.
