Hello Everyone,

My "significant" other and I just bought a new Thor Four Winds 31F and we plan to travel the country for the next year (very exciting). I am new to RVing but looking forward to the new adventure!
I would like some advice on how to pack the kitchen. I have glass and china (inexpensive) and prefer to drink from glass. Is there a way to secure them from rattling while driving and still maximize storage?

Regards & thanks,

My parents went to a fabric store and bought some fabric that is thicker and soft. She cut it into sheets 6 inches by 6inches(depending on item) then place in between one and the other.

Others you syrofoam cut out to the size of the object so it barely fits given it a tight fit.

Sorry I can't answer your question but I do want to welcome you to iRV2. My DW is in charge of the inside and I am in charge of the outside. When we get on rough roads I still hear a lot of rattles. She tells me she has done the best she can. I am smart enough not to question that. Occasionally I hear some outside rattles. I blame it on the slide covers and the patio awning. She wisely accepts my answer also.

Browse the forums that interest you and don't be afraid to ask questions. We have a great group here who like to help when they can.

Hi Debbie and welcome! You will have to get creative with dishes and glassware. I finally gave up and got a small set of Corelle dishes and some good quality plastic glasses. We use paper plates and disposable cups quite often while traveling. If you only carry a couple of glass pieces, you might wrap them in dishtowels and place them in a drawer while on the road.
