    We have just bought a brand new mooveo van and would love to hand a few pictures up to make it homely. Any suggestions about what to use, does it devalue the van etc?:BigGrin:

    How about double sided sticky pads we used them to fix a mirror in our other MH and they held ok.

    Heavy duty double sided tape used for sticking on number plates. No holes and can be peeled off when you sell up.

    I'm a picture framer for a living. If you want to be sure that your pictures don't come off, ask for mirror plates. They screw to the back of the picture frame and then you screw them to the wall. They will obviously leave holes if you remove the item later.

    Get yourself some COMMAND STRIPS from B&Q, I have lots of heavy pictures and they are fabulous, get the velcro backed that way you can change the pictures round.kennygd:thumb:

    B&Q sell 'Sellotape' sticky fixers that can be removed without leaving damage. Similar product are the round velcrose tabs with sticky backs.

    I make my own frames so they are very lightweight and use perspex instead of glass. I did use ordinary ones with the sticky bits but they often fell off and then when I had a habitation check done a photo of me disappeared completely ... I got a bit paranoid. But it probably fell off and the glass broke and they didn't want to admit to it.

    If you go to craft shops there are brilliant patterned and coloured cards that you can cut into frames. .... if you are artistic can use ones to suit the photos.
