Shelf options

Has anyone come up with a good way to store plates and glasses in the cabinet above the sink and stove? We have a 25 foot International and they get all jumbled up during the transit.

Thanks in advance.

Upper cabinet North / South abouve sink/stove

We are still working on that one . I agree the unit above sink and stove needs some kind of shelving with vertical wire dividers that are adjustable and would stop items from shifting . I'm thinking that wire shelving would be the way to go for weight and see through properties. A custom job better done by a sheet metal company for fabrication in stainless steel and something simple that you would install yourself .

Cardboard boxes should work, and will not be expensive. For glasses, get a box big enough to hold the glasses. Cut down the sides until the box is just barely taller than the glasses. Use the leftover cardboard to make dividers to go inside so each glass is surrounded by cardboard and doesn't rattle against its neighbors. Same for the plates. If you use 10" plates, get a 10" × 10" box and cut down the sides until it's just taller than the stack of plates. Then stack the plates in the box inside the cabinet.

It will do until you can find/make something better.

We have a 25FB Intl. I use the little organizing cubes in both overhead units in the "kitchen/dining area". One has a divider from a wine box to hold glasses.

We store our plates above with small pieces of cut drawer liner between each plate with good results. There's also a good article in the newest Airstream Life magazine on kitchen storage. They reference a product called Cupboard Corral (Cupboard Corral RV Cabinet Organizer from Corral Plastics) that looks interesting for glassware. We're currently using the white plastic dividers that separate socks in drawers that you can buy a lot of places (we got ours at the Container Store), augmented with cardboard dividers that you might find in a wine box. The cardboard works, but I dislike the look of it and it always seems a but dirty from paper crud. Much prefer the plastic.

Everyone finds different things that work for them the usual way--trial and error.

We did buy the dividers for socks to use for glasses and a drying rack to use for plates. We purchased these at The Container Store. Thanks for suggestions.
