We stick our stuff in the cabinets just like at home. We've never had anything break or spill due to breakage.

As full-timers, we pack the same foods in our fifth wheel as we did in the house (albeit smaller quantities). Whether in the frig, pantry, or another cabinet we use as a "satellite pantry," we just make sure things are not packed so loosely that they knock about. 33,000 miles and we've never had anything break.

Pickle jar & jalapeno jar fell out of fridge cause door was not secured and 1st left turn door came open....pickles/jalapenos AND gallon of ICE ALL over the floor

I have found that glass food jars are most susceptible to breakage when they are next to each other - something about the way they hit. So in the cupboard, I separate them with plastic and/or canned goods so the two glass items won't touch. That seems to work as I haven't had any break.

Keep an eye on the glass plate in your microwave. I was delivering a motorhome and was on a rough road when the microwave door opened and the plate fell out and broke. Turns out the microwave door doesn't have a way to lock, just an easy pull on the handle and it opens. If you have one of those I'd take the plate out and lay it on the bed.

We carry the same stuff as we had at home, glass glasses, glass jars, glass casserole and serving dishes etc. I have cupboards lined with the waffle weave shelf liner and the pantry keeps any jars secure as the shelves have space in a row for 1 can/jar and is not extra big for them to even move around. The front lip is upturned a little which keeps them from moving forward against the cabinet door. 9 years full-time, nothing has ever broken.

Not a concern. The pickle jars and spaghetti jars will be fine unless you're getting pretty Western with your RV!

We cay lots of stuff in glass and have never had a problem. We even hoe the fancy wine glasses in a rack inside the cabinet. Never had anything break. We use the expandable plastic wine bottle sleeves on the wine glasses to keep them from clinking.

My wife came up with the idea of using old socks with the toe cutout over the glass items she wanted to protect. Works like a charm.

Hi all,

Many of the kitchen supplies we use at home come in glass containers. Think salsa, spaghetti sauce, and wine. I have found some substitutes we use for camping like spaghetti sauce in a can. But some things I haven’t been able to find in anything but glass.

Do you bring any glass items in your RV/camper? If so, how do you ensure it doesn’t break while on the road? For example, do you have a special wine bottle storage container?

Thanks.


We carry several glass items. They all have rubber cloth either between them or wrapped around them.

I've also installed double latches on all cabinet doors.

We take our RV off-highway, so use of break-proof containers is absolutely necessary ... plus U.S. highways are pretty rough all over anyway.
