Knife rack - will a magnetic one hold?

We want to put a knife rack on the wall in our TT. Will a magnetic one hold the knives? Or will we pull into the campground with knives all over the floor.

While it should work fine, I'm not sure I'd trust it, especially if you travel over some rough roads or go to some unimproved sites.

Most knives have a good amount of stainless steel in them now and they're not as magnetic as the good old carbon steel knives, so they will be more prone to jarring loose from a magnetic holder.

We had one for all of a single trip. Roads on the Oregon coast are not always smooth so we now keep them in a block under the sink when travel.

While traveling we, TT, we keep our knives wrapped up in a dish towel either in the sink or under the stove cover. While set up they stay on the magnetic holder.

I have the Camco knife safe, and while it isn't the most stylish, it doen't look out of place in the trailer. We just traded in and my DH thought it came with it when I told hime I had to get a new one. Mounted it with the double-sided mounting tape and it held to the wall for over two years.

This is a safest way to do it.

I bought a magnetic tool or wrench holder from the automotive section which mounts on the wall bOver the last 3 years I've never had a knife or scissors or bottle opener fall off.

We bought three magnetic strips from IKEA, doubled up a row for the cutting/chopping knives, and use the other for misc utensils. Have driven over 16k miles through 23 states, all type of road conditions, not one issue or concern the knives are going anywhere, holds tight.
