    I have always liked nice china and glass in the house. I am undecided as to what to do now. Do I buy melamine? Is there a way of transporting china and glass, and is it worth the extra weight. What do you all do?

    Motorhomed for years, only ever used China and Glass and never had anything break yet:Smile: (hope I have not jinxed myself:Eeek:

    Put non slip matting underneath glasses and plates etc, they don't move far.

    We have always used china and glass and as said protect with non slip mats and cushions in the cupboards to stop the rattle. Ours have even survived when we have hit unseen bumps!!

    As others have said use glass & china well packed. Don't forget the cutlery, use the finest you have. No need to slum it.:BigGrin:

    Absolutely; don't like the plastic world we live in. I even have my own ceramic mug, nothing else will do. Never mind the weight feel the texture.

    We find the Whitefurze Food Storage Boxes useful for storing all sorts. The lids are tight fitting and they only cost a few pounds. We have a 7l one for our Luminarc plates and dishes with tea towels for packing, a 10l one for the large double skillet and others of various sizes for other items.

    We use plastic baskets Like These for packing cups and glasses. Six will fit in a basket, separated by pieces cut from a flexible chopping board to stop them banging against each other.

    Always a balancing act but why would you want to spend so much on your home from home and eat and drink out of plastic.
