Thanks Lori, that was exactly what I was thinking about. The silicone caulk is also a good idea. I have been saving the tubular containers that some liquor bottles come in. I think I will glue a group of them together to put glasses and bottles in. I will need to cut them down a bit so you can easily reach the glass or bottle.

Corell is good, nice and light, almost unbreakable... BUT, remember you can't use it in the microwave and you have to wash it. I use paper plates unless I'm eating something that has to be cut up... like a steak or pork chop... then I use a plastic plate and real stainless utensils. I cook as much as possible on the Webber outside or the microwave. I hate to wash dishes!!

why no Corelle in the microwave?

We have corelle at home that we bought in 1986 and corelle in the RV that we bought in 2001. Put them in the microwave all the time.

I know I'm not supposed to use plastic wrap in the microwave (chemicals leach when it gets hot) but I never heard of any problem with corelle.

From the Corelle web site;

Corelle® products can be used for serving and re-heating food in microwaves or pre-heated conventional ovens up to 350° F (176° C). To warm empty dinnerware for serving, use pre-heated conventional ovens only. Porcelain and stoneware mugs are microwavable.

We use pottery hand made plates & bowls, glass glasses. Stainless silverware. We have installed the rubber shelve liners and use the thin foam sheets from packaging purchases in between each when we travel. We also put a pillow in the cabinet to fill the space when we travel. Never had a dish or glass break & if it rattles the pillow muffles it & we don't here it as we travel down the road.

We use everything, paper, plactic, stoneware etc. The assorment gives us a choice depending on the occaision. We seperate the stoneware with the plastic to keep from chippig. As far as rattles, who cares, were are not in the TT when ging down the road. Never broke anything. For cups we use ceramic mugs that we keep on their mug tree, that goes in the above sink cabinet for traveling. We also carry travel tumblers in the TV.

Limited weight is not an issue with our coach so we use the same stoneware, glasses, glass cookware, pots, pans and silverware we used in our house. We use the rubberized shelf liner extensively in the coach to protect the glassware and stoneware and also to cut down on the rattles. Our only mishap so far is a wine glass which fell off the wine rack the first time we moved after the rack was installed. A rubber band on the open end of the rack solved the problem. We also have a four piece place setting of Corelle we use for potlucks along with two acrylic glasses. When we're on the move we use paper plates for lunch.
