Throw a sacrificial Oreo under the trailer once a week. More often if there are lots of squirrels.

Question: can anyone recommend how to store dishes and glassware so it doesn't end up flying around and broken? We're putting in sticky shelf liner material but aren't sure about storage of glass plates, bowls, etc. Any advice for a new Airstreamer?

We carry our wine glasses and other breakables in the cardboard boxes they came in. BTW, what is a dish strainer?

Wouldn't be better to throw it away from the trailer, instead of under it?

Glass, loose items, all need some security. I use cloth towels and try to have them placed so as to inhibit the movement of plates, bowls, cups, etc. a heavy clean bath towel works. On the counter tops, I have used a strap secured at each end. Then I am able to leave the espresso machine on the counter when traveling.

athletic socks make great protectors for glasses, bottles, and jars. Slip each item into its own sock top-first so the items are still standing on their own bases and will still stand upright.

I agree with Protagonist on the athletic socks. Every night, I do dishes and let them drain (in the dish strainer), then simply remove my socks and cover the glasses with them before putting them away. Most of my socks stand on their own without having to worry about using the base of the actual dishware, but I think it's a good approach, regardless.

When I get up in the morning and grab an OJ glass, it's nice to have the sock handy to strain the pulp, then straight into the laundry it goes!

To each his own… I pad my glassware with clean socks.

Actually, I learned that sock-over-glassware trick from a professional mover who helped us pack when we moved to a new home back when I was a kid. I haven't personally used that trick while camping, because all of my camping glassware is plastic.

Great thing about that trick, if you do happen to break any glassware, it's all contained in the sock, and you can throw away sock and all with fewer worries about getting cut on broken glass.

We use 1/4 inch sew foam for anything delicate/fragile ie coffee pot carafe, toaster oven, & induction cook top....everything else breakable we leave home. Keep a piece under sofa cushions for contingencies.

....head snapping and mouth open....did someone say induction cooktop? I hadn't even thought about putting one of those on my wish list. How much power do they pull and can you run on a generator?

Our induction unit pulls max 1800 watts, we usually run it at half power or less and yes will run on a generator, and it really doesn't heat the trailer a lot (reason we have it) like the gas burner does...

Did you have a difficult time finding cookware for the induction cooktop? The pieces I have found are rather heavy...and expensive.
