Clancy,
Pictures, Pictures we need pictures. That is a great idea. Our 5w has a center island and the wife loves it. It gives us extra counter space and storage. But without it I would be doing what you did.

I like the cabinet you posted. I like that it has a lot of drawers. To keep drawers from rolling out, you could use a pole or rope slid behind the handles (need to be installed) to keep them snugly in place.
To keep the entire thing from moving, that's another thing. Straps seem reasonable.

pix

Ok, so this is the cabinet I got from Lowes. $88 + $20 for the drawer kit. Excellent value IMO.

The pix show the drawer at the top to hold cooking utinsels. The two shelves below hold items separated by category (dog stuff) (first aid/meds) (heating pad) (extra fuses, etc) you get the picture The top of the cabinet is as important or maybe more so than the cabinet itself.

A pic shows it holding my coffee pot and a really neat and sturdy caddy I got at Sam's for $14.98 to hold paper plates, silverware and knives. It comes with a handle which I did not attached due to wanting to store under the sink. It fits perfectly w/o the handle.

You can kinda see how it fits in the 233S. I kinda wish it were a touch smaller but, really, it meets our needs so well that I'm ok with it. It's a personal thing, for some folks that space may be better utilized for something else. I turned the pix to the correct orientation but when they uploaded, the correction didn't stick. sorry.

Bodz ~ I liked the cart but ultimately went with a non moving cabinet. I still like that cart tho, wouldn't mind having it at home!

RT - Love your Class C! I fell in love with a similar floorplan from Jayco once upon a time...... We had a Class C for about 5 years and I really miss it! It was, without a doubt, the best camper ever and I wasn't crazy about the floorplan! Our little Roo is great for us now (and more budget friendly) but I do have some great memories in our jayco.

Ok, so when I'm wrong, I might as well fess up....... Sirsea ~ you were right. kaboom...... over it went. Thanking my lucky stars a - it didn't break, b - it didn't break anything else and c - it didn't make a mess that had to clean it up. So, we learned we have to move it in such a way it can't fall over.

Lesson learned......

This is what we ended up with; it's working nicely. Would prefer on wheels but would prolly be a pain to travel with. We have to move so it doesn't tip ehen traveling.

We wanted and island. Bought an upper kitchen cabinet @ Lowes....added 3" rubber wheels to the bottom that lock. Built a top for it....added one more shelf to the inside. Now...holds a lot..roll it out of the way when not needed. I attach it a wall and use a rachet strap to secure it. Never had a problem.
