Default Hanging Pictures etc

Hi All

Being a new static caravan owner and not being able to move into it until March 1st we were wondering about how to hang reasonably large pictures. Can this be done or not.

I have been told 3M do some kind of adhesive strip but they sound a little flimsy to me. Is there anything else I could use as the walls will be thinner than a standard house.

Cheers

Dave

Most caravans have hollow cavity type walls...If you use a stud detector and of course an electrical wire and water pipe detector you could get a fixing into a wall stud...Failing that hollow wall toggle plugs provide a substantial fixing but will leave hole in the wall should you decide to change your mind.

The 3M strips that I used will hold up to about 7kg.

They look perfect, that is what I will get but the large version.

Thanks

We tried a stud detector when fitting our TV above the fireplace. It didn't work. Possibly because our walls are foil backed plasterboard. In the end, we found the studding quite easily as where the HDMI lead came out of the wall, a small piece of insulation had been cut out and one stud was just at the side where the insulation had been cut.

If your painting is going to be permanent, there are some small round fixings that you can buy from Screwfix, they are excellent. I would recommend you take a look at them.
