What does everyone use, or what has everyone made, to secure plates and cups in your trailers? Granted they're all plastic, but we don't want them sliding around.

Thanks

Non skid shelf liner in the cabinets. We have never had any moving around of plates etc.

We put a gripper type mat on the bottom of the shelves. Never needed more than that, and this is our third fully enclosed TT.

We just put enough stuff in the cabinet that it can't move.

Same here and for actual glass and maybe glass wine glasses you can use one of the paper six pack beer type caddies to sort of keep them separate. In almost 40 years never had anything break, but did have a few things fall out of the cabinet over the sink, but we were packing cans two high all the way to the door so that was our fault.

Thanks. I would think that stacked plates would move around a lot. We just moved up from a pop up to a hybrid so this is new to us.

Mine just sit in the cabinet and have never given me any reason to NEED to secure them. I would think that MOST of the problems with them would be in rear kitchen model trailers.

Same here. But some trailers seem to bounce more/ride rougher than others, so may or may not work for you.

The problem with that is all the stuff against the door if it is still closed will "JUMP" out at you and two hands even if quick enough might not be enough.

Thanks everyone. This all makes sense. I guess if we were dragging the trailer down dirt roads it may be different. Non skid shelf liner it is.
