Adding wine rack?

Please see the attached photos; I'm considering adding this wine rack to the cabinet noted in the second photo. The wine rack itself is only two lbs, and I don't know that I'd ever have nine bottles in it (and never while traveling). Our camper is stored right now but I'm hoping there's some structural support in the cabinet to attach the wine rack, but I'm concerned about the potential weight... What do you think?
TIA!

I keep mine in the pantry cuz it comes in a BOX!

If you are afraid it won't hold, you can beef up the interior framing to strengthen things and use an L-bracket or wooden equivalent under the cabinet to beef things up.

Ok, saying I can securely mount the rack to the cabinet, my next concern would be; is the cabinet mounting to the wall secure enough to hold the rack! Lol!

How are the bottle going to ride when you are going down the road? I would be afraid they would fall out and break.

...you missed the part in the original post where I said (never while traveling) ; )
No, they will be safely tucked away until we're all set up!

Temperature is a big variable when storing wine. Whites would normally be mid to low 40's while reds mid to low 50's. If your having the wine within a month of purchase just keep em from breaking

Considering TT cabinets are thin & stapled together (not built like your kitchen cabinets) I wouldn't do what u suggested. However, I would investigate buying a small wine fridge & installing it underneath your counter top (where it angles back to the wall), then you would have chilled wine & wouldn't have to store bottles elsewhere when moving.

Wine has to breathe properly. If not breathing properly, I give it mouth to mouth.............

Wine rack- other use

I put a wine rack just like this in my Solera bathroom to use as a towel rack. I glued and screwed a nice 1" X 2" X 2' strip to the wall and then attached the wine rack.
