We generally don't use plastic at home.....we prefer the glass storage containers with lids. What would you recommend using?
Also, how do you store your drinking glasses, wine glasses, etc? Will they remain stable on the shelf while towing? Or do you need to put them in a tub or put packing between them so they don't break? Sorry, I just don't know how much bumping around to expect when towing. We had a travel trailer prior to this, but we used plastic glasses and such. I would much prefer to use glass. This will be our 'home' for 6 months of the year, and I'd rather use better dishes.
Are you able to leave heavy items like a coffee maker, Vita-Mix, etc. out on the counter? Or should I secure them on the floor or in a cabinet?
Are there any other packing/storage ideas you've found to be helpful? I'd appreciate any suggestions/advice. Thanks so much!
For the fridge. We use Rubbermaid storage containers or ziplock bags (but we only have the RV double.
Dishes, my parents have Corelle with paper towels in between (Tiffen MH). For glasses while traveling Mom put them in socks (mostly wine glasses).
Keurig sits in the shower.
Pots and pans that nest and are induction capable (induction plate unless your stove is). (Cheaper and quicker than gas)
Congratz and good luck with it.
