Items falling from cupboards in transit

Any suggestions to keep items in cupboards during transit?

Welcome to the forum.

I'm not familiar with your trailer. Do cupboard doors fail to stay latched or ??

To avoid an “avalanche “ when opening cupboard doors, we use a lot of the spring bars to hold stuff in. Just be sure to expand them against the cabinet frame, not the thin luan walls or you can pop the staples out. We also use the pieces of bubble wrap that comes in packages from places like Amazon to pad dishes and glassware in the cupboard, inside the spring bars.

OP.....I have the same model as yours......only a 2017 model.

With the corner "pantry"?


Keep heavier items low.

This works for me.

Overhead cabinets above the sink have never come opened.

Use caution when opening.

Ball bungees are great for wrapping around cupboard door handles to keep them closed during transit. So handy for everything around an RV!

Keep the cabinets full, so stuff can't move around much. Fill empty spots with extra paper towel rolls or misc stuff that doesn't add much weight. You'll likely need it anyway. As long as your doors stay latched you'll be good to go. Just be a little careful when opening the cabinet for the first time after traveling.

We cut pool noodles and use them in/on everything.

Once we have everything loaded, last thing before hitting the road we stuff our pillows in our cabinets above everything during transit. When we arrive they come out and everything is just where we left them.

Brilliant ideas! Thank you!

They do not stay latched. It appears the cupboards may have been overfull or items banged against the doors. I wondered if the latches could be tightened?
