Kitchen Overhead Storage

We are new to Airstreams and recently bought a 2011 25 FB. We need some help with storing dishes and pots and pans in the overhead storage cabinet. What do you use to keep stuff in place?

Hi, we have a different model of 25'er, but we use a lid holder for our plates in the overhead storage. Small pans are stored under our kitchen sink. And larger pans are stored in our pantry.

I went to the local fabric store and bought 2" pillow foam, 12" wide. I cut the length to fit the cabinet, I think it was 4 ft. Then I used a knife to cut recesses in the foam for each stack of plates, bowls, glasses, and wine glasses. Works like a charm!

The rubber stuff they sell in the shelf-paper department works like a charm to keep stuff from sliding. I wish I knew the correct name for it. A small rack keeps the dishes in their stack. Plastic sliding bins hold misc pots and pans.

Look around the kitchen organizers at the store and get creative.

Keep the heavy stuff low and use the overhead cabinets for lighter things. This helps keep the trailer center of gravity low for better towing, and it avoids pulling the overhead bins off the wall.
