Lots of extraneous stuff in this blog post, but there is a picture of our overhead using readily available ADJUSTABLE shelves from big box store. Stack dishes on edge...

My dish management solution...

Corelle plates of two sizes go in a check file I got from Staples (yes I did remove the tag) which slides neatly into the gap between the microwave and the cabinet wall. One plate per individual plastic pocket so that they do not rattle.

Bowls, glasses, and cutlery fit into this webbed basket I got at Michaels craft store. Each cutlery piece in its own slot so that they do not rattle on the road.

Total cost about ten bucks.

I spoke with you when you were getting the shelves made, and I agree, they look great! We are thinking about a set for our trailer.

My wife used some type of rubberized shelf liner cut to size between each plate.
No noise no movement.

I "think" this is it. Very flexible, thin with lots of little holes and feels like rubber.

That photo by AWCHIEF is worth a look. Why didn't I think about that years ago.

Storage solution for dishes and glasses

I used off the shelf storage vinyl coated wire shelves from Home Depot and a bamboo plate holder from a home store.
In the first picture I used a wire shelf divider and turned a corner shelf on its side to keep the glasses in place. I used silicone pots holders (lime green in the photo) to keep bowls from sliding. I also use them as pot holders.
In the second picture I use another wire shelf and a bamboo plate holder for the plates, saucers and my folding silicone colander. The Corelle square plates are too tall for the bamboo plate holder so I stack them on the shelf.

Nothing really moves and no broken glasses or plates.

To keep everything organized when on the road I simply put bed pillows in the cabinet. They hold everything quite well and it's something you already have on hand. Been doing this for years.

I took a clear plastic shoebox type container - but larger - and with straight sides - plates get stacked front to back. It holds alot - more than I need! 2 large serving platters to the back, 6 dinner plates, 6 salad plates and more! They don't fall out and they don't shift - toss the cover and for less than $5 problem solved.

All of my plates as well as cups came from a marine supply store. They come with rubber already built into the bottom and do not slide around. I also use wire holders similar to ones already posted. One of the advantages of the set up that my Classic has is the amount of upper cabinet space. All the cabinets are lined with non slip. Not the soft kind, but more like place mat consistency. Check out Defender Industries or West Marine for the plates, cups and saucers.

This is a great idea.....something to keep things from moving is important. Extra bath towels or dish towels would serve the same purpose.

Things just won't ride in something mobile as they set in your cabinet at home. If it can move, it will displace during travel.

I keep my Corelle dishes upright, in lid organizers from WalMart, in a lower cabinet, glasses and mugs in a small upper, cushioned by that rubbery shelf liner mentioned earlier.
