Best way to store dishes, glassware

Need advice from you seasoned RVers. I tried using the grippy square shelf liner and found plates, glasses, etc still slid around. What creative solutions do you all use? Does the heavier liner that goes in tool boxes help? Love to hear your ideas as we just purchased another DP and wil be stocking it very soon. Thanks!

My DW uses the sticky rubber liner, but when we travel she uses the round, foam swimming pool noodles, cut to length so they compress a little bit between the dishes and stuff on the fridge shelves and the door. Cheap, takes up the extra space between the door and the dishes;/jars etc. she marks them for the cabinet they go to, and when we stop she puts them in a folding laundry hamper and stores it in the basement.

Dave and Cathy......The rubber liner usually works well, but the liner ends up sliding around. I install the liners and then use thumb tacks in the four corners to hold the liner in place.

I put my dishes in the cupboards and then pack a lot of stuff around them like soft pillows so they can't go anywhere. Never had a broken dish yet.

I bought cheap yoga mats at Walmart and once they were cut to fit the cabinet, I put them down with double sided tape. Dishes do not slide around. I do put extra kitchen linens around them to prevent rattling but I love the noodle idea above!!

We use the rubber mats on each shelf, and a paper towel between each plate, bowl, etc. Wrap glasses, mugs, etc., in paper towels. No problems so far.

We use IKEA 'SKUBB' organizers, and keep the dishes in a drawer. The large units are 11x11, which obviously work great with IKEA plates that are also 11-inch diameter

I don't worry about our paper plates and cups sliding around or breaking.

I use Corelle dishes and found a dish stacker at Camping World in which the plates and bowls fit perfectly. I am also a plastic basket queen. All of our belongings are organized and stored neatly in plastic baskets within our cabinets and I never had a problem with breakage. To protect my pots and pans I use rubberized shelf liner. I simply cut squares and place them between the pans... it protects them from scratching and eliminates any rattling. You can also use it in the baskets to protect any glassware that you are carrying. Stuffing pillows and blankets in my cabinets is just not my style!

We learned at an RV rally,: Go to a UHaul moving store, and buy the sleeves they sell for packing dishes for when you move. They are made like an envelope, of soft foam material. The dish slides in, then stacks, like normal dishes. Same for glasses, and cups. They are not pretty, but work perfectly.

9+ years. get Corelle!!! Even in our first rig, a rear kitchen 5th wheel I only broke one dish do to travel. Now in the MH I have actually smashed a couple by droping them on the tile floor. Coffee cup handles are another story so I get them a dime a dozen at Salvation Army. I now keep my wineglasses safe by using cheap can cozzies. One over the bowl, one over the stem, then into a basket stood up so they alternate. Works great
