We have driven 20,000 miles with just the non skid pads and the printer has not moved!

The problem with just using non-skid material is, while the printer may not move during normal driving or even during hard braking, it could become a lethal projectile in the event of a collision or roll over. This isn't a big problem in a TT or fiver because no one is inside when it's underway, but movable objects should be stowed or securely tied down in a motorhome.

I already use straps to hold in the drawers by adding a bracket to the top inside and bottom inside. Every drawer lock I tried would either not fit or just not work. The straps do the trick. I also use straps for my desk chair and Euro chair that came with the rig. These do work well.

I may have to add anchor points to the desktop, but its a hollow desk top which is nice and light but not strong enough to hold a screwed in anchor.

The 3M glued anchors mentioned by PAZ may work, they make a stronger set for up to 400 pounds, if I use 4 of them.
Strap does not go that way...

You slide printer to close to support post if it has one then loop strap around table coming in from living area.

This assumes a normal 4 place like table with seating on both sides.

Two sides of the desk are open, left and front. The back and right are not.

I would have to put a bracket on the wall or desk top for a strap. The wall has a window and the blinds surround which prevents me from pushing the printer against the wall.

I got the printers to my campsite yesterday and tomorrow I hope to get a better idea of what I can do with it when on the desk.

I was reading about this stuff called Earthquake Putty. It was on amazon but has been around for a while and used by RV dealers when staging the inside of motor homes etc. When I took my coach for a test drive, they had the cookie jar and other counter decorations held down by this putty. You attach it to the bottom of your item to secure and press into place on table etc. and that's it. Not too expensive, think it was under $10 for a package.
I've got to get some before my big trip this summer.

I would NOT be comfortable with anything the size of a printer (even a small one!) using any sort of "friction" based means (i.e., non-slip mattes, etc.) to secure it. We ended up purchasing a small, inexpensive Epson "multi-function" printer that fits on a sliding tray that's part of the dining room table / computer desk furniture in our coach. It's WiFi capable so I don't have to run anything more than a power cable to it ... and it's safely inside a close cabinet during transport.

I changed things a bit by doing away with the second desk - print/copy area. I missed the open feeling and relaxing in my chair at the window.

So I kept the one all in one orinter on an IKEA draw pedestal next to the desk. It sits about 1 1/2" below the desk. I put a strip of Velcro along the entire right side of the printer against the desk edge. I then put another strip along the bottom left side. I put a hook on the back of the pedestal and under the desk opening for straps. I put one over the top with a pillow and another around the left side that pushes it against the desk, and includes my chair.
