36CKTS front closet shelves

We just got our new unit and getting ready for a long trip. We were wondering about the shelves in the back of the bedroom closet. Since they are open with only a small lip we were wondering if anyone has had any problems with items falling off when traveling? We are thinking it would be mostly little used clothing but don't want to spend time picking everything up each time we stop. I have been looking for some kind of cargo net to strech over them but was wondering if it was necessary.

Thanks for any info.

We have a 2015 CC 34RLSA and have never had anything bounce off the bedroom shelves that had to be picked up. We put towels, TP, clothes and other items on these shelves. It has been 8 months so far with no problems.

Have the small lipped shelving in our 2015 Silverback 33rl front closet. We have made several long trips over various roads and stack clothing and sweatshirts, etc and nada, nothing falls.
That includes the bumps from HELL on highways thru MI to Mackinaw City. We went there following the FR Rally in Goshen, IN. Been to Florida twice on 900 round trip miles plus, many 50 mile locals. All sorts of level and not campsites.
Now, bear in mind, this is not our first rodeo with a fiver. Our 2011 36 ft triple slide Keystone was more bouncy on the standard pin box to hitch. THUS , from experience, we opted for the factory installed TrailAir pin box. We keep it properly inflated.
Makes a world of difference. NOTHING bounces or moves around inside the Silverback. If you have a similar pin box, not a problem. IF NOT, perhaps those with a standard pin box will share their experience.
I will say we were also concerned when we pickup the unit in south Florida last year. Turns out, all good.
Hope this comment helps.

Thanks for the info. Since we are new to 5th wheeling we were not sure. We did op for the tail-Air pin box.

Once again thanks.. I am sure we will have many more questions as we transition for the MH to 5er. Luckily most of my questions I get answered by just reading this forum. Their is a wealth of knowledge here.
