Thanks! I was still mulling how to convert drapery hooks, am glad to find out about these. I did a search for similar stuff on Amazon, found a few other iterations of the same kind of product (including one that is a hook instead of a clip), but also found this:

http://www.amazon.com/Advantus-Panel...=cubicle+hooks

which looks like it might hold a bit more weight and would also be a bit more invisible.

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Ellpea,
I love to know about the Panel Wall Wire Hooks as well as the shelf! Did you look at all the things that can hang on panels in the other photo for the wire hooks?

Another item I found useful is the spiral upholstery tacks or upholstery twist pins Amazon.com - 500 Upholstery Twist Pins - High Quality - Arts And Crafts Supplies were used to attach doilies to the arms of armchairs.

Gilda, yes, I *obsessively* look at all of the items, and (worse) then read all of the customer reviews of all of the items. No wonder I still have laundry that needs to go into the drier.

I use those little upholstery pins on my furniture a lot... how would you use them in the trailer? I think my wall covering is too shallow to use them there?

I used the twist pins to hold sash rods in the trailer instead of screws. ( I abandoned the sash rod idea) I found the twist is long enough to penetrate the rat fur and the insulation underneath. I would only use them for light weight things.

I see. Thanks! I'll check this out, but I don't think my wall material is thick enough to twist into... we'll see!

Are you going to order shelving or other items???

Excellent idea Gilda - The drapery hooks look much stronger than the cubicle clips. I really like the look of the oven mitt on the door and the kitchen towel on the side! I am going to look up that group you belong to in Calif. - very nice of them to let you stay on their property. That is one product I don't mind buying while staying on their land: a nice bottle of wine to go with your wonderful camp stay there

Seam tape

Hi Beak!
Absolutely love the Color scheme and the faux metal. I was wondering what you used for the seams on the skin. It really looks great. I like the wider tape look. Is it 2 sided tape?
Thanks for your post

Hi Beak, Interior looks great! Just wondering what you used to attach the faux metal to the fridge? Thanks!

Thanks Jason, I'm sorry I didn't see your post until now.
In answer to your question: I just used silicone glue and lots of it because of the ridges. There is an slot all around the front of the fridge door, so I pushed the plastic sheet into the slot which gives it a finished look. As of now, it's still holding up fine.

Thanks Irene, not sure what you mean - I'm still a Newbie. The outside seams? Inside, the faux metal is just joined together as close as possible in the middle with silicone glue and the faux metal panel edges have a channel-type edge I purchased at Home Depot the same time I picked up the panels, which gives it a finished look.
