+1 this is exactly what we do also. we really wanted the colorful melamine dishes instead of corelle, but not being able to microwave them was an issue for us. knock on wood no broken dishes yet. we have a rear kitchen, but we took the cabinet over the couch/axles for the dishes and that's been working fine for us.

We use circle nonslip coasters in between the dishes/cups and keep cozies on the glasses. These prevent breakage and cuts down on the noise also.

I made a template from 1/4" hardboard with circles cut out of it and placed it in the bottom of the dish cabinet. Our acrylic/plastic glasses and cups go rim down into the holes so they don't slide around. On the other side of the cabinet I made a divider with foam on it.(and thin foam on 3 walls of that side of the cabinet). Corelle dishes get stacked in the side with foam walls. the dishes can bounce around some but can't crash into the glasses and they seem to ride well. I haven't had a chance to use it much but when we make camp and open up the cabinet everything is in its place ready to be used. Cincia

You will need rubber non-skid shelf liner to keep things from sliding around on the wood "floors" in the cupboards. Like what you might put under a throw rug to keep it from sliding around on the floor. (You may need that too!)

Not all of us are "camping".

Plastic plates ≠ French gourmet cooking. Also sometimes it rains. Also sometimes food is really sticky and gooey - especially nice runny baked beans!

Storing dishes

My wife purchases some inexpensive cloth containers that look like boxes. They keep everything in place including folded clothes.

Marshmallows go on a stick, and empty beer cans in the recycling, no need for anything else...lol...we carry real plates, cups, and bowls but have never used them. Only use paper plates and plastic cups.

We use corelle also ... My husband, who ate with paper plates and plastic utensils for 9 mths while serving in Afghanistan, won't even entertain the thought of eating with paper or plastic. Use the non-sliding rubber mats, spring loaded bars inside the cupboard doors ... Also sometimes use soft pillows inside to stop things from moving around ... Nothing broken yet ... Knock on wood
