Big hint so you don't break your cabinets (especially if held together only by staples) ... heavy things low, light things high. For example, if you have cast iron skillets or cookware sets (e.g., Magma nested) or canned goods, get them low to reduce the bouncing impact whereas silicone collapsibles, plastic/paper ware, or chips and bread can be stored high. Remember that plastic tubs or bins with lids are your best friends! For us, each camper has a small laundry basket they use for packing and moving their stuff into the TT; these tubs often come in handy during the trip because they fit well into the floor's nooks-and-crannies during transit (keeping things from rolling and sliding) AND can be easily placed outside if they are in the way. Be creative and consider multi-use.

I use laundry baskets to take the stuff going in the frig and canned supplies/bread, etc. out to the trailer and then the baskets stay stacked together in the trailer parked in the tub for the dirty clothes and to bring the leftover frig stuff back into the house at trip's end. We don't use the tub/shower while camping but use the campground shower house instead. The tub is a great place for us to store stuff to keep it out of the way. I used to keep our cast iron skillet in the oven but I've found this oven's door tips open when traveling and the skillet ended up on the floor. Now it's stored under the booth seat on some of the sticky-type mesh shelf liner I bought from Dollar Tree. Searching the aisles of Dollar Tree you can find all kinds of cheap useful things for the trailer and if it doesn't work out, there's not a lot of money invested in it.

Wife puts paper plates between the dishes and in between the bowls. This keeps them from banging against each other and driving you crazy! For the pans she puts the kitchen towels in between. For cups we bought one of those "spike" cup holders from BB-Beyond.

You can stuff a pillow in there if you are using glass and not plastic.

We put our "real" glasses (not plastic) in those insulated sleeves that beer cups are often seen in, or we alternate between glass and plastic when packing (never have glass next to glass), or we sometimes wrap a glass with a kitchen towel or dish cloth, or sometimes do all of the above. Never had a problem.

Well it certainly looks like everyone has their own system. Thanks for all the suggestions. I can do all plastic except I will NOT drink wine out of plastic haha. I'll work that out I'm sure. Happy Monday everyone.

At the suggestion of many others, I went with Corel dishes/cups, and clear plastic glasses. Got tired of filling up the grey water tank with dish water, so started using paper plates for every day, and using the Corel only for "special occasions". To keep everything securely in place (including pot & pans, and cooking utensils), I built what I call "Nesting Racks". I used thin Luanne plywood as a base. I laid the plates/glasses/etc. on the plywood and positioned pieces of dowel rod between them to lock them in place. After marking the dowel locations on the plywood, I dipped the dowel pieces in "Plasti-Dip" to add just a little cushion. I then laid rubber shelf liner on the plywood, and screwed UP though the plywood into the bottom of the dowel rods. I also cut pieces of the shelf liner to put between each stacked dish/bowl/etc. After 1-1/2 years on the road full-time. I'm very happy with the results. (See attached pics):

It started with the gear from our tent camping days: Enamel over steel plates, stainless steel cups. lightweight pots and a small cutting board.


Since moving up to a TT, more pots & pans and acrylic tumblers. Even a glass tea pot.


Anyone know where to buy Corel? The enamel over steel plates and the microwave are having 'issues'.

This has been working for me in the cupboard above the kitchen sink in my fifth. It's a curtain rod - one of those that twists on tight at the end (got it at a $ store). Keeps the tall coffee mugs, boxes and containers of food stuff from falling over. I also keep non slip liner on the bottom of the cupboards and slip dishtowels, face cloths (whatever is handy!) between breakable things. Got to get some of that Corielle tho as I have broken a few plates (I just don't like eating off a paper plate!).

Amazon ... and search for CORELLE - lots of fun patterns and many are often on sale. Dropped one plate recently on our tile floor and it just bounced! Note that the mugs are NOT Corelle so they may chip/break. On EBay you can get older sets that do have Corelle cups.
