Do you use bungee cords on your Joey Beds?

SInce this is the first coach that we have with slides out trays in the baggage compartments...I am thrilled with how easy it is to access items now. But should I be using some kind of restraint system like bungee cords etc, to tie the contents down? I have some of the beds lined with plastic storage bins and I am not concerned about them, but for the one with my chairs and small side tables on them....what do you all do???

Thanks in advance for your input.

I don't but then again, I usually have enough stuff in the beds that nothing slides.

I don't think the mass of the motor home allows it to make such an abrupt move that you need to tie anything down on the Joey beds. If you do then you are in trouble (lol). I do not tie anything down in the Joeys.
