But really shouldnt have to do that .

what about some kind of folding catch at the bottom of the door that when in transport you move it up to block door and fold down when camping ?
We used a hasp on the door with the dorm size refrigerator we used to use for tent camping. It worked great. Ours came open last time out also. The hasp is a quick and easy fix.

We do the same. They're inexpensive and if they break, you can go out and get a replacement for a couple bucks.

We use these in both the fridge as well as the pantry. Got them at Walmart.

I think that the spring loaded curtain rod may work to keep things from shifting. I know they also make fridge bars at RV stores and Walmart. They may work as well.

I use the above referenced fridge bars along with velcro on the door.
Really no need to overthink this.

We had the same thing happen to us on or last campout. We had a few 2 liter bottles of pop in the outside fridge. When I opened the kitchen, they came rolling out. I was thinking about just baby proofing our fridge door with something like this (Amazon.com: Parent Units Fridge Guard, Clear: Baby). But, I do like the idea of the bars also, that way I still have nor surprises when I open the door.

They are two versions, a 16-28 and 10 -17 in the actual frig bars
Boat-N-RV Warehouse Online Store

for our outside frig we needed the shorter version.

but my beer doesn't fall out any longer when i arrive at the CG and open the door.
