Question Help with wall hangings!

We just purchased our new to us camper last month. (A 2002 Jayco Eagle 304bh) It was all winterized for us and now we have to wait till spring to use it. This will be the hard part for me. We are newbies because this is our 1st camper so we know nothing. Have done a lot of reading and this forum has been very helpful. I came upon one post that had all her decorating done and it looked absolutely awesome. I have been looking for things that are light weight but also that will match the camper to my personality. I even gave her a name. OK so I maybe a little weird. Anyway here is my question. How do most of you put things on your walls. Nails, screws, command strips. Will I hit anything behind the walls or is there dead space? Any help and ideas are welcome.
David, Darla, Dawson, Dessa and the new addition Daphne the camper.

3M Command hooks and strips. That way there aren't holes left behind if/when you decide to redecorate.

This is what we'll be doing with our new fifth wheel, that we can't get into until spring either so we feel your pain!

3M Command Hooks. You can get them for nearly any weight load you want. No holes, no fuss. And we winterized last week. Boo. 17 more weeks till spring break, and we'll be back out.

We just use short little nails to hang things. Small Molly Screws work when the little nails no longer hold. We bought our trailer to use and will let the next owner discover the tiny holes.

I use the 3M command strips and silicone caulk to hang most things. My hubby did have to use nails or screw (not sure which) to hang my towel holder in the bathroom. He placed them in the studs. It was just too heavy to hang otherwise.

3M command hooks and strips seem to be what most recommend, But I recently came across the 3M velcro strips and find them to work awesome. If your sticking to any of the wood in the trailer the 3m strips won't stick to it unless you give the wood a light sand to remove some finish.

Help with wall hangings!

I have found that just wiping the area with denatured alcohol allows the Command Strips to stick fine and they still remove easily.

I use a little goof off on the wood to ensure the command hook to stick. I tried rubbing alcohol but it did not work.
