How do you avoid dings/dents in the storage cabinets?

We just started loading up our new Airstream Flying Cloud FB27.

I could not help but notice that more than a few of the lockers/cabinets are not isolated from the interior skin and thus can get dinged by stuff when on the road or just in general use.

I'm thinking foam of some sort. Any suggestions about what works best here?

Hi. We have a 27fb Flying Cloud with the cabinets you mention. 2 years of camping so far an we remain happily "ding free". Stuff apparently just doesn't bounce around as much as I thought it would.

For dishes, we have that sticky rubbery shelf liner stuff on the bottom of the shelf which might keep things in place from that perspective. I suppose you could line the interior skins in your cabinets with the same material?

Good luck!
