Looking For Straight Forward Answer's Please

If you could buy a product that you could store your drinking glass ware and your stoneware dishes in without the worry of them breaking while in your airstream during tow? And if this product was able to be compacted for easy stow'away. would you consider purchasing such a product?

I've noticed this is the second poll you have started about wine glasses. Are you performing research for future wineglass purchases?

Boxes & Containers – another interesting subject.
I might buy such a product but….wouldn’t the box and glasses have to fit well together, or be adjustable. However, I’m the type who would enjoy designing and constructing a special box just to hold the glasses, the dishes or whatever. There is something therapeutic about boxes or problem solving nature of boxes or containers. It fills a need, causes people to feel better after they buy Rubber Maid & Tupper Ware products or a trip to the Container Story, Bed Bath & Beyond, etc. I guess it goes way back (per-historic) to the simultaneous development worldwide of the pottery making arts & crafts. From cradle to grave- -we need our boxers.

Necessity is the mother of invention. If you have an idea - run with it. Get a patent and make it happen.
As soon as you talk about I could think of a dozen ways to do what you are talking about (or so I think). Where there is a need, even a small one, one can prosper. Need an example? Post-It Notes. Simple and very lucrative for it's inventor.

We travel with plastic glassware that looks like the real thing. It's our bottles that we have to take care of...

No. We only use plastic glasses and dishes as they are very break resistant and also lightweight. If they break they can be replaced without a lot of expense.

No. Glass protection containers are not on my things to buy list. Dish towels work just fine and I don't have to store the storage container while I'm using my glass wear.

No. We have camping plates and dishes. I prefer paper plates most of the time, no cleanup and they help start the fire . I drink right from the can or bottle!

No - more stuff is not a good thing.... But I bet that folks in tiny trailers have a different take on this than folks in large trailers....

I would also love to see some stats on paper plate and cup usage:
Airstream vs. SOB.

Of course, have you considered lettuce leaves?

We use plastic plates and cups. They're cheap, and mostly unbreakable. We tend towards paper plates when boondocking so we don't fill the blueboy washing dishes (no grey tank).

Well if you use the dog/cat for the first cleaning stage it will minimize the amount of water needed for the washing...and if you want to get rid of unwanted dinner guests just put the plates back in the cupboard after the fuzzy dishwasher is done with them

We use both depending on the cirmcumstances, if we are boondocking paper is acceptable, if we are moving from campground to campground or staying put with hookups we will use regular dishes, anybody wanna survey paper towels vs cloth towels It bothers me the amount of disposable stuff we dump in the trash stream, landfills are finite and plastic packaging is not particularly recyclable or biodegradeable. So anything I can keep out of it I consider a minor victory. Besides I am cheap and paper plates cost money!
