I personally would avoid hanging any weight from the headliner material. The headliner is glued in place. It is possible that, especially during hot weather when the adhesive may have softened up a bit, the weight of whatever you are hanging could pull the headliner material loose. I seem to recall reports by others on this forum of loose headliner material present in their Escapes for one reason or another. I would hate for this to happen as a result of my own actions.

I'm in complete agreement with Dave on this issue. For every post I've ever read on any of the all molded towable forums asking about how to hang items from the "walls," there is also a question about how to glue the headliner back up!

Since these are not sticks 'n bricks homes, I don't think we should try to treat them like they are. Decorate differently!

Appears there are several types of VHB tape, which is best for use in the trailer? Any suggestions as to where to buy?

Thanks

I agree. Even if the headliner doesn't come off the wall, the facing could come apart from the backing.

Please forgive the storytelling but I can't help myself. This home owner comes home one night and finds the pointy end of a humongous nail protruding out through the stucco on the exterior of the garage. Apparently the other owner had picked up a 8” nail to hang something on inside the garage and couldn't find anything really solid behind the drywall, like a stud. This person was relieved to discover that the wall was solid about 4” behind the drywall, and then pounded the nail in a couple more inches to make sure it was really solid. Ouch!

Command hooks are great. I sprayed mine with krylon khaki plastic paint. I use 2 hooks inside the door for keys, 2 on the wall outside the bath for coats and hats, and 3on the inside of the bath door for towels (left them white).
