We keep the bulkier items in labeled boxes in the bunkhouse. Plastic shoe boxes store items wonderfully in cabinets. Keeps items from flying around and you can see into them easily when unpacking and they are small enough for many cabinet spaces. We also stay away from glass
When we pack the camper, we use strip of painters tape on the cabinet doors and drawers. That way we know that particular area has been checked and packed. Works great to keep the doors closed too. When it's time to break down camp and head home, same thing in reverse. Pack up/Tape up.
Not very elegant, but it works and helps keep track of what you have done or not done.

We don't use anything in the cabinets and we are on our 2nd RV. Recently, however, hit a bumpy patch and the microwave door opened and the glass rotating dish fell out and broke.

I pull a 35' rear kitchen trailer.
Nothing tied up, no bars, no nothing.
Everything stays at its place...even the coffee maker on the rear counter.
Never exceed 100km/h, gradual acceleration and easy on the brakes.
That's how we do it !

He capped this off on one end, attached the "poles" to the wooden block and then to the inside of the cabinet. Larger plastic glasses stacked over one, medium size over the next one, and juice glasses over the shorter one. They didn't tump over or move around in the ecabinet. We also had nesting coffee cups that we attached to the inside of the top of the cabinet with screw in cup hooks. When the coffee cups were hooked on these, they didn't move either. After many years of this system, I got rid of all dishes - we now use paper plates & bowls and the Solo cups. I do still use my Melamine cups and still use the cup hooks. This is the information on the plate holder from Ikea....
VARIERA Plate holder IKEA The plate holder is adjustable, so you can customize the width based on the size of your plates.
VARIERA
Plate holder, light beech, stainless steel
$9.99
Article Number: 802.404.16

Can you tell me where you got this, there is no IKEA near me...Thanks

We cut a pool noodle so that it fits tightly in the microwave. We stand it on end in the middle of the rotating glass plate with the top wedged in. this way, even if the door comes open the glass plate should stay in the microwave. Cincia
