What is good to use for picture framing in an RV? My father is now a full time RV-er and I have a portrait of his granddaughter for him. I am not sure what type of frame to get him since he'll be traveling and living in the RV full-time now. What do you suggest? Thanks!
Coleen, the RVing editor comments:
Weight is usually a major consideration. Look for something that is lightweight.
Size is likely another factor. RVs usually don't have large amounts of empty wall space. A smaller frame is probably better.
I guess I assumed it would be a picture he'd hang on the wall, and not one that would sit on an end table. I'd definitely suggest one that hangs on the wall. A wall mounted picture frame can be secured with a bit of sticky tack so that it stays up during travel. It is more likely that one that sits on a table would need to be moved each time he takes off with the RV and then again each time he sets up camp, and that gets to be a hassle.
Another consideration is, What does he like?
There are lightweight plastic and metal frames, but if he doesn't like them, you'd be better with something else.
I'd suggest a simple wood frame. Something with a narrow trim. I'd also look for a style that fits close against a wall. You might also look for one that has a Plexiglas front instead of glass, so if it does fall, it is less likely to shatter.
And, if I know grandfathers, he's going to love that gift, regardless of the picture frame!
