Looks great and I like the idea of covering the stove sections of the counter.

We have a number of family portraits and several framed needle point and decorations permanently on our walls. We do not remove them on travel days.

Very nice. Blank wall space in the BH or at home is "raw meat" to my wife, so she has decorations for all the space . . . some of it is seasonal. I think the decorations are a nice personal touch and kind of differentiates similar model rigs from each other.

I found a few vintage style postcards that were mounted to a wood backing. So, now we try to collect similar when we travel, and if they don't have the wood backing I put them on balsa wood and distress the wood to look similar. Postcards are small enough not to overpower the small spaces. :)

Here's a composite pic:

We have a photo that I had a custom frame made for that we want to hang in the Prowler, but I haven't figured out how to do that without drilling holes in the frame . . .

Any ideas :confused:

John,
Is there glass covering the photo? I hang items using the "Command" strips. I use both the smaller ones (1/2 pound) and the larger ones (they hold items that are 5lbs.).
The strips work well, and I've never had one fall off...but I wouldn't hang anything that has glass...just wouldn't want to have the mess in case one ever did let go!!
It is important to clean the wall thoroughly as per the directions.

It does have glass in the frame.

We used the command strips in our old Trail Runner, but for some reason they don't stick to the walls of the Prowler.

I have done both, small screws through the frame and double sided velcro. The key is to eliminate any movement, bouncing or swinging. I replaced any glass in frames with plexiglass.

Well, Cathy doesn't want holes drilled into the custom frame (was quite expensive), so I guess the answer will be to put a hook in the wall and hang it when we are at the camping destination and take it down when rolling.

I've thought about using velcro, but I just don't trust it enough.

Wait a minute . . . duct tape . . . it holds anything . . . right :confused: :p

Lowes sells extreme double sided tape. I've not used it to hang pictures but...

use the hook for hanging and velcro on the bottom corners to keep it from moving

If you want to add some decoration without putting holes, etc., in the walls...get some of the cling on art/sayings...they work great and can be pulled right off and moved to another location any time you want.

I have them on my island and the curved wall going up the steps...also some in the bath and bedroom...

Gotta give Command Strips a plug. We've added a few pictures and momentos to the hallway walls and Command Strips does a great job.

Also, DW and I were discussing hanging some family pictures. Discovered some very nice digital, high resolution picture frames in the $35 to $55 price range on Amazon. We really like the one that has the motion detector -- it turns off if no one is in the room but turns on when you walk by. Holds a ton of pictures which are loaded to the device via USB, SD/SDHC card, and from your smart phone via a 10mm connection. Oh, and IIRC, the frame is rechargeable though a USB connection so there's no changing batteries.
