I've read many post of people using the 3M Command Strips products to hang pictures and things from their rv's walls. It seems that there is great success in this product but little really is said on the ease of removing them. Specifically removing and leaving no damage or no residue to rv walls.

If I understand correctly most rv's have a sort of vinyl wall covering, at least I think mine does. I read that you can't use them on wallpaper but I'm guessing the vinyl wall coating in rv's is considered different? IF you have had trouble removing what did you use to clean up any residue left and were you satisfied with the end result. I've been reading the Q&A at the 3M site on how do deal with removal issues but would like some real life experience dealing with this and your comments on the end results.

Thanks!

We, too, have used only the Command strips and hooks for everything we've hung in our 5'er. I've removed several after a couple of years and no sign they were even there. I have to say though that I have had trouble pulling the strip of adhesive at times because it has ripped or broken off before the plastic strip could be lifted off the wall. It may have been me not pulling directly downward but rather outwards. On a few I managed to grab a small piece of the ripped tape and pulled completely off successfully, but there's also been a couple that had nothing to grab on to so I ended up lifting the plastic slowly and was able to remove it without any damage.
We've used three of the larger hooks to mount a full-size, but lite-weight, wall mirror on the back of our bathroom door - two at the bottom for it to sit on and one at the top to keep in position ~ works great and is still solid and secure.
Happy & safe travels.....JW

Have never had them leave a residue or spot. they just come off as advertised. I have used them in both the sticks and bricks and now the fifth wheel.
At christmas in the sticks and bricks used them to hang stockings garland and lights all over the house when I was done just removed according the the instructions and you would on never known they were there.
Now in the fifth wheel have them everywhere and if I find I want to change or adjust just remove them according to the directions and place a new sticky in a new spot.

We used Command Strips to hang pictures etc. in our first fifth wheel. Most of them were in place for about three years. Took all of them down when we replaced the fifth wheel. Absolutely no damage to any wall surface and no residue either.
