When we hung pictures in our Coleman fifth wheel, I thought that a simple  strip of velcro would keep them in place. However the deteriorating condition of our highways got to the pictures any way. They were simply shaken apart. It was time to start over.


I had to repair the frames and secure them better.


A hot glue gun put the frames back together.


And I am hoping that extra velcro hold downs will do the trick, or it will be episode number three of the great picture debacle  .  .  .  .  .  .  . Here is a look at the back of the frame.


The staples that tab in the heavy cardboard back are now hot glued to the cardboard and the corners are reinforced.

Comments and suggestion to help this go better will be greatly appreciated.

We used Velcro during the early years, but had the same experience of the roads batting them down. Now we use only wood frames and put a screw on either side and just screw the frame into the wall. Problem solved for many years now. We learned this trick from The Mossman's while in Campbellsville, KY.
