Mustang Stan -- OK - We put our cups upside down on a weaved cushion type thing, cups are not separated by cardboard or anything else, we put the nicer thinner wine glasses in separate containers in a six pack type container. The dinner plates, soup bowls, salad dishes, bowls, etc. stack nicely and thus far travel without problem - maybe 65K plus miles in the RV. This works for us now but it didn't work as well when we had a harsher suspension in our previous (four) RV's. Hopefully, the radio isn't so that loud we would not hear breakage and also hopefully we'd smell the smoke or the tire temp sensors would pick up temp increases before serious damage but ???? .

OK Just my opinion but I kind of doubt having the radio up would have much to do with burning up rotor and calipers.

I think we have the radio up too loud too We also use the grippy liner and larger ceramic cups. Can not go without our coffee in the morning!

The black you see is foam weather stripping, the silver thing at the bottom of the wood is "U" channel

A dowel attaches to the wood dividers during travel.
Again, it ain't pretty now, but now I know it'll work, I can finesse it a bit

We solved this problem by getting stacking plates, bowls and mugs from Cost Plus World Market. We bought em in store and they are a little on the high side price wise, but unless we leave one out on the counter when taking off instead of stacking it (which has happened) we haven't broken one yet. When moving, for extra safety, we put it inside the china cabinet which is protected by the slide out. Here's a few links if anyone is interested: http://www.worldmarket.com/product/multicolor-stacking-mugs-or-espresso-cups-sets-of-6.do

Abrasv, How long have you had that diesel pusher, When we had a Southwind gasser never heard coffee cups over that 454 up front.

We use this, too. It keeps our Keurig machine on the counter and our condiment/napkin holder on the dinette table, even while under way. We store our mugs upside down with on the liner with an inch in between, and they don't touch. We also use a piece of liner to keep the stove grate from rattling. Random rattles drive me crazy!

We fulltime and don't care to eat or drink out of plactic all the time, so I have a set of stonewear dishes that we have used since 2009. I only use the soft mat liner from walmart on the bottom of the shelf. I have ceramic mugs, wine glasses etc and never have a problem. It would drive me nuts to wrap, unwrap, etc before traveling. If something breaks, I'll replace it. The plates and glasses don't rattle or go anywear, so I see no need to fuss with it.

Here are some racks for those of us who are not gifted with wood working skills

Beautiful idea for sure, but I will be looking here...
