We use both open top containers, ala plastic milk crates and covered ones, depending on the items. The crate type is just to keep items from rattling around, e.g. bg sprays, BBQ equipment, hoses, exterior shade screens, etc., while the enclosed ones are for gear that needs protection or are not so often used. Stackable containers are good unless you are getting ones so tall that there is no need to stack.

The right kind are the kind that fits in your bays and holds the stuff you carry with you. That will probably change as your your RVing style develops, so don't agonize too much over it.

While I do use closed containers, I remembered after reading an other post, that I do have some 'other' types of containers. For my dump hoses, I use a open top 5 gallon plastic bucket. It keeps and possible mess contained. I also have a coupe 'milk' crates for loose itesm that travel with us.
Being in the military, we always did 'load plans' for our vehicles. My Action Packers have 'letters' on them and I have a 'load plan' that shows which compartment my containers are in, and what is in each one. This list is in the pouch behind the drivers seat, for easy access.
