Wine glass rack installation: Suggestions?

Hi all-

I recently purchased a wine glass rack to install above my sink, to attach to the bottom side of the cabinets. The rack looks pretty much like this...




Anyway, I thought drilling relatively large holes in the cabinet for the screws and plastic anchors that came with the rack was a bit overkill for a wine glass rack. My next thought was, "hey, its an Airstream, why not rivet it?!". It turns out though that the thickness of the cabinetry is 5/8", and with the wine rack adding ~ 1/4 in thickness for the rivet to go through, I would need some long rivets. No problem, I thought...I will just hit up the local hardware store. However, no one seems to carry such long rivets. Enter the internet...where I can get 100 1" grip pop rivets for ~ $20. I only need 4. Well, maybe 5 or 6, because I will probably do a test rivet elsewhere to make sure it works.


So my questions are: Should I pursue the rivet option? If so, any suggestions on places to get fewer than 100? Or should I buck up and drill the bigger holes and use the screws and plastic anchors?

Ultimately, I have other things I would like to put in the trailer as well, (knife rack, towel racks etc.), and I would like to see what brilliant options are out for attaching things inside an AS without too much collateral damage.

Thanks! The wisdom of Forum crowd is much appreciated!

Wine glass rack installation: Suggestions?

After some thought about the installation, I bought a wine rack that I could install on the wall between the sink and the pull out pantry. The install was easy with bolts and nuts. Click image for larger version

This wine glass set-up looks really cool-- but do you have to pack up the glasses to travel, so that they don't sway into each other on the road?

We settled on stemless glasses, mostly because they take up a lot less space in our smaller AS. They travel well in their original packing boxes, even on dirt roads. Since we insist on separate red & white wine glasses and champagne flutes (crystal, of course) it's helpful to get more of them into a small cupboard space.

But love the look of yours!

Cheers!

Looks very nice, hope it works out well! Thus far we mostly use GoVino stemless wine glasses, but this is nifty.

I use 3M VHB tape for such things. Applied to clean surfaces, it has more than enough strength. It can be removed with solvent or goo be gone, however, which is nice if you should need to do so at some point. Screws and rivets are unforgiving in leaving holes.

They are plastic but we pack away the glasses and wine while we travel.

Thanks so much. We have really enjoyed it because it will hold 8 glasses and 4 bottles of wine. We do pack it away when we travel.

Thanks for the suggestions! I will go hunt down some VHB tape. This will give me an opportunity to spend time in the trailer now that it is mostly packed away for winter (even though we're still having 75 degree days).
