The child proofing section of your local dollar store, K-mart or Target will solve your problem.

We use these on cabinets.

Velcro straps if you can find them long enough are also a nice but more expensive solution.

The spring loaded rods are very cheap at walmart etc. in the curtain rod section, that's what they are anyways.

Non-skid shelf liner is a must have. Also small plastic baskets keep canned goods, and other stuff from moving around. I wrap the booze bottles in the shelf liner and put them next to each other with no wiggle room. I've had a wood cutting board on my countertop forever with the non-skid stuff underneath and it doesn't move during travel. As for the tension bars, you can buy small, cheap tension curtain rods at Wal Mart. They're much cheaper than the ones specifically designed for RV's. If/when they break, just go get a new one for $2. They work great in the refrigerator to hold everything in while traveling.

As for wine and liquor bottles we use my old long socks to keep them from clanking(clean of course).In the cabinets, heavy stuff towards the front of the coach, light stuff towards the rear. We use square plates stood on edge and they save a lot of space with a spring rod as a divider vertically. Sounds weird but it works. We use a stainless percolator coffee pot that takes up less space with nothing to break and no filters to buy and we like the coffee better.
