Kitchen storage?

So I'm a newbie and wonder the best spot to put the heavier kitchen items. Are they safe in all the cabinets when towing?

Lower is best for heavy items, and choose them carefully.

My overheads don't pop open and they have a lip behind which I can put heavy pots and pans.
The latched pantry has popped open on occasion. I tape it shut.

Heavier=lower is probably best, because your cupboard contents can move around when traveling, and you don't want something heavy & up high to fall on your head. (Sort of like overhead storage bins on the plane.)

I would also try to minimize the number of breakable items. Then for items that might bounce around a bit, you can cover them with towels while traveling so they stay in place.

We do NOT carry our beloved "cast iron" in the AS... in the Truck bed.. sometimes..

Definitely not "high"... it raises the CG and if in event of 'rough evasive maneuver' you won't be worried about heavy items crashing to the floor, table or other place inside your AS...
Peace and Blessings..

We had a flying cloud with the flip up doors. I installed some cabinet latches that i liked a lot. I installed one in the center of each door and they did a good job of securing the door. We kept dishes in the upper cabinets and never had an issue. We did keep heavier items lower but still had more comfort with the latches installed.

Keep in mind that it's not just whether the overhead lockers stay closed in transit, but also does everything stay stacked neatly in them? If not, you could open a locker at your destination only to have the contents fall on your head like an avalancheó it has happened to me. So a good rule of thumb is, don't store anything overhead that will hurt you if it falls on you.
