I have some pictures I would like to hang, but what is the easiest way to hang them and keep them from falling off while going down the road?

3M Command strips. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes and work great. Available in most hardware stores.

I hang them with a screw (instead of a brad, like I would do in the stick-house), but I use velcro tabs across the bottom of the back of the picture to keep them from swinging or falling off during transit.

3M command strips work great! So many sizes and uses...and clean up easy if you need to take them off or move them.

3M command strips RULE ! I even use them to hold a towel holder and it has traveled 5000 miles with towels always hanging on it

You ask about easiest and best and they're not necessarily the same. 3M command strips are certainly easy and work well but depending on what you're hanging the BEST may involve a 1/4" toggle bolt in the wall (but only if you plan on NEVER getting rid of the item from the trailer)

The thought of putting a hole in my TT wall makes me cringe just thinking about it. Command hooks for me.
