Storage solution for dishes

Our dishes pretty much stay put as there isnít much room for them to move around. Wifey strategically cut up and puts those rubber mesh shelf liner pieces in between some things that rattle annoyingly. Havenít broken anything yet.
Those rubberized shelf liners are used as place mats also. And anywhere you want to leave something sitting on a counter or table. Short of an actual wreck they stay put.

We use Correlle Ware. Strong, doesnít take up much space and light. We put down non-skid cabinet liners, they never move. Drawers also.

My wife made cutouts from felt that she puts between the dishes. Keeps them safe and quiet.

We use Correlle Dinnerware....plates, saucers, bowels
We use Glass tumblers for drinking, mugs for hot coffee/tea
All just stacked in kitchen cabinet

We also carried a Noritake 8 piece China dinner setting in china hutch *glass door cabinet above side counter/draws

Only thing ever broken was a Correlle dinner plate I dropped when drying...bounce on floor, popped open screen door and hit a large boulder next to site. Broke into 4-5 large pieces

Never used Plastic or Paper plates etc. even when tent camping

I echo BobMar's comment for our coach. For stemmed wine glasses, we bought a set of Tritan plastic wine glasses from Amazon as "glass" wine glasses to break while bouncing down the road --> https://www.amazon.com/MICHLEY-Unbre...-5&tag=mh0b-20

Corelle is our plate of choice as it's lightweight and can take a beating. We also use aluminum pots/pans and regular coffee mugs that are all stored in the same cabinet. Have never had an issue with breakage or movement while traveling.

Ours is a motorhome and is somewhat smooth during travel. I suppose the dishes might be in for a rougher ride if the OP's rig happens to be a travel trailer.

X2 on this solution. We've had Corelle plates in the RV for 20 years!

We also use Corelle dishes and for the most part, they don't require any cushioning. Where we do need it, we use the foam sleeves that are used for packing dishes for a household move. They can be found online, but I found the price to be better at a local U-Haul dealer. They come in a couple of sizes and work really well with our pots which are in a drawer, and we also use them with larger cooking/mixing bowls. And, we also use the non-skid rubber matting to keep things from sliding around.
