    Hi
    Im looking for some tips to stop the crocks and glassware from moving around in the cupboards whilst traveling from place to place, are there any good plate racks etc on the market or would i be better off making something bespoke.

    Cheers

    Neil

    Sorry, couldn't resist, anyway we go with the non slip stuff, a bit of kitchen roll between the actual crockery crockery, and a teatowel around the glasses in a small basket and so far, tempting fate, no problems.:thumb:

    Being a cack handed numpty my son made something up for me. He cut some MDF sheet into pieces the size pf the cupboards and then cut outs the size of the cups & glasses.

    For the plates & bowls he cut out MDF and put dowel rods into it around the edges of the plates.

    5 years on no breakages:BigGrin:

    In crockery and glass cupboard just put non slip rubber mats underneath, travelled many winding steep roads and never had a breakage (touch wood).

    We have the same problem in our RV, not broken anything yet but been close.
    Been looking round and see that Fiamma do an adjustable clamp system that fits into the cupboards, I can't comment on it but idea looks ok, so we are going to give it a try.

    Glasses & crockery? Plastic and melamine, sorted. :Smile:

    Oh, actually I do use arcopal mugs. They fit in some cut out bits that Autosleeper very kindly put in one of the cupboards.

    Most caravan dealers sell plastic thingies to go in cupboards that will hold plates, dishes, mugs, etc - caravanning friends who prefer china to plastic report no breakages using them. I would imagine that they would be more shaken about in a caravan than in a motorhome, less suspension and more lateral movement.

    We have found the best thing is to wrap in tea towels or hand towels, then place on non slip matting.

    We have obtained quite a store of these from charity shops never paying much for them, does not matter if they have holes. They also come in handy for spills, leaks and of course drying wet dogs.

    If too soiled throw away if not easily washed.

    Use the non-slip soft rubber mesh you put in Shower trays / Baths. Plus kitchen roll between plates. B&Q do a 3 tier chrome plate rack that fits into corner of a cupboard and also slopes backwards, no issues with this so-far even on rough roads.

    Plastic cups and melamine!! WHY?? Denby plates and mugs for me! Just because I'm camping in a big box I don't need plastic, might as well have paper plates and mugs and save on washing up!!:RollEyes:

    place all items in a carrier bag and drop on the floor.

    this cuts down on 'just waiting for it to happen' time and the bag saves picking individual pieces off the floor. :Rofl1:

    Colour ? What's that then ?

    Actually you may well be right :Rofl1: I have a set of melamine plates at home from an old picnic set. They have bright red poppies on. I do not normally see colour as such but these are so big, bold and bright that I can see them.

    I can also drop them when I bump into immoveable obstacles like the missus without breaking them. :Rofl1::Rofl1:

    Hi.

    We use non slip matting when on the move and we have never broke anything. I do manage to smash more when when washing up. :Rofl1:
