I bought a new/used travel trailer Avenger 2016, taking it out this coming weekend to Ponderosa, I joined happy trails so I got places to visit when I retire, bought everything needed. I want to put pictures up but not sure about putting holes into walls, would that cause moled in time? any suggestions, I was also thinking liquid nail to secure my mirror. Thank guys.

Some folks have had good luck with 3m command strips. I have a few of them inside closet but the only things hanging from them is fly-swatter and feather duster, so I have no idea if they hold heavier items as well.

Congrats and welcome to the life!
Another vote for Command Strips too. I have attached picture frames to the walls with them.
When I traded our last TT in, I pulled all the stuff off the walls for reuse in our new trailer. It was great to do so without leaving a single mark or hole.

One of the fulltime couples I follow uses command strips to hold up their winter coats, plenty strong according to them =)

Congrats on the beginning of your spending on all things RV!
The trailer itself is a great starting point.
Enjoy!!!!!

We use standard picture hooks that are nailed into the wall, but I am not concerned about the holes. The artwork comes down when on the road.
We started collecting local artists’ work while traveling and have a rotating gallery in the camper.

Ooh, I might have just acquired a new expensive hobby =)

I like to collect experiences more than things but having a painting to remind me of a place I've traveled is a nice combination of the two.
