Maybe a dumb question (maybe not)

Well, we are less than two weeks away from taking delivery of our new trailer!

Our son is a professional photographer and we would like to hang some of his pictures on the walls, just like we did in the Safari. Uhh - how? In the Safari we just used velcro on the back of the picture frames. How do you hang pictures in a CCD?

Thanks as always - I am sure someone has come up with an innovative method

One thing I would not do again is use 2 sided mounting tape. It does not hold when it should and likewise does not come off very easily.

We found something called "Joe's Sticky Stuff" that Duluth Trading Company sells, which we have used successfully to put print on the interior of ours. It comes rolled up in a nifty little can, you cut off a strip the size you need---and voila! Any residue comes off easily with Goo Gone.

Greetings from the Florida Panhandle

I would use glue back Velcro strips, putting the loop on the on the wall and the hook on the back of the picture frame. The loop can be removed without damage to the wall with old fashioned lighter fluid (naphtha). I would also suggest framing the photographs in acrylic sleeves to keep the weight down.

We need to see lots of pictures when your new baby arrives.

Agree. We look for matted prints at favorite places, in sleeves, and put them up that way, as they come from the store. They are lighter weight and look fine, the sleeves also protect them from the ever-present dust.

We have also used magnetic picture frames/sleeves, put up with Joe's Sticky Stuff, for pretty postcards and pictures, also photos of grandbabies, etc.

I think the 3m fasteners would work well on aluminum. Much like the stick on velcro it sticks on but removes easily with a tug of a tab. The hook and loop is very secure and "snaps" together. I use these on a variety of surfaces and never had a failure regardless of extremes of temperature and remove instantly without residue or marring. Use as many as the weight necessitates. I use two mostly for balance.

We mount photos to the back of single or double matting, holding all together with double stick tape, and do not use a frame at all. We use double stick foam tape to hold the mat/photo assembly to the wall.

Some frame stores carry very nice matting.

We share your concerns about mounting things on the clear-coated walls of a CCD and decided that any wall hangings would be on the walls that are not aluminum - bathroom, bedroom, above the television and refrigerators.
Unless it is to become a permanent think, then I might look at pop-riveting some kind of bracket on which to mount a picture frame.

I like the idea of a digital picture frame, and the one Santa brought may just wind up in the AS this year.

Good luck - let us know what you decide and please post a picture or two!

We bought a small digital frame when we retired in 2007, to take on our extended trips. We mostly have pics of kids and grandbabies in there, which the children love posing for so that grandma and grandpa can "take them with us". We take lots of pictures of animals when we travel, so they can look at them when we return home. Photo quality in these is really very good, we can upgrade photos quickly and the frames are easy to use.

Thanks for all the suggestions

Thanks for all the suggestions.

Not sure about putting Naptha on the clear coated interior walls of our new baby!

Digital frames are okay, but they still need to be mounted on the wall, and it is hard to find large (18 x 24) digital frames! Remember our son is a pro, he takes large format pictures and often as not in film not digital!

We like the idea of the 3M stuff, will have to go take a look at it. Only 11 more sleeps!
