My handles are one above the other. So I loop a hook and fuzz thingy between them and the two doors together in concert with the strap hold them both closed. If I forget the loop strap, the freezer or refer flies open and drops stuff on the floor. I leave the strap loopy thing looped around the refer handle when I'm parked.

I think the OP is asking what to do about stabilizing the interior contents, not keeping the doors from opening.

To the OP: As much as possible, all contents on the inside are either in the door shelves, in the drawers or put inside large, shallow Tupperware containers that run front to back/side to side so they don't move. I've not had anything fall out when I open the doors.

Some people will use tension bars to keep things in place, but I never had luck with them.

WE use some of the plastic trays you can get at a bath store or WallyMart. Also some shelves have some non skid mat on them. For keeping the doors shut, we have a homemade piece as shown.

Some models have these small rails on the front of the shelves, that are turned up approx. 45 degrees. You should be able to find these in a clip on style, somewhere, as well.

I've heard of folks using pillows to keep the stuff in the fridge from moving around. On travel days the pillows are in the fridge, when stopped they are on the couch and/or bed. Keeps the pillows from falling on the floor during travel, and keeps the things in the fridge tamed - win win.

We use a combination of rubbery place mats and low sided plastic baskets. You could use the non skid shelf liner too but I was afraid it might be too sticky. The place mats we use are textured to look like they are woven mats. Stuff still moves around a little but not enough to cause a problem. We picked up the baskets and the mats at the dollar store.

Did you ever clarify your question ?
Did you ever say what type fridge - side by side or 3 door or ???
Are you trying to keep doors closed or inside stuff from moving ???


for our 3 door in a previous 5er, we made a t shaped carpeted board
for our side by side in the coach - this :

Ah - went back to reread your post and it seems you are asking about stuff moving around inside when traveling - bins are a good idea or judicious packing in the fridge to put things that won't move on the shelves and 'rollers' etc in the door or storage bins... good luck

We have the same fridge. What did you make that out of?

We've had a residential fridge in an RV for about 10 years now. We have two, 2" tall, 4" wide and 8" clear plastic trays, with rubber feet in the refer for storage. In those two trays, I keep things like catsup, mayonnaise, butter, etc. Anything that is small and heavy. I also use a dispenser that holds about nine sodas on their side. It's the type that you grab one and another rolls forward.

When we pack the refer, we put as much as possible in the bins. Things like sour cream containers, humus containers (things that tend to slide) I put at the back and then block with something like a loaf of bread.

After driving, we open the door slowly the first time, but rarely have anything that moves around.
