    This is probably a stupid question but I will ask any way.

    How do you stop crockery , pans etc ratteling when you are traveling?

    Combination of tea towels, non slip matting and kitchen roll. You get used to a system after a while where everything has its place.:thumb:

    Mugs/glasses in plastic baskets with pieces cut from flexible chopping boards between them.

    Plates/dishes (Luminarc) in a 7L Whitefurze box padded with tea towels. We use similar boxes (different sizes) for the double skillets and other bits & pieces.

    if you are taking the time and effort to wrap everything in towels andbubblewrap you may as well stick the lot in a box and put the box in an outside locker.

    Admittedly we've only been out twice, but the only rattle we had was the grill pan.
    What am I doing wrong?

    Non slip matting £1 a roll from Pound Land, we always use china and glass not got any plastic and never have any trouble, just lay it underneath bottom plate/dish etc never hear a thing.

    Line the cupboard with glassed in underneath and they all sit perfectly still but don't let the touch one another.

    Rattle on hob towel underneath.

    Pots and Pans a few tea towels, it all becomes second nature after a while.

    In my MH I just start the engine and then you can't hear anything else :Laughing:

    But I agree with the above - tea towels and kitchen roll :)

    Felt circles ( bought in a pack from Dunelm ) slipped between each plate.
    We put small cheap cushions in each cupboard which stops china etc. moving, and non slip matting for grill pan and saucepans.
