New to motorhome arena.
Wondering if there is any advice on storing nice dinnerware for travel in DP.
Have lots of experience with TT where we used Correlle plates that survived just fine stacked on top of each other, even though they got bounced around a lot.
With change to DP, we decided to get nicer dinnerware.
Haven't been out yet with new rig, but wondering if they will survive ok as-is, or whether we need to put something between them, or get some type of storage system.
Thanks

For nice dinnerware, yes, I’d put something between each plate. Doesn’t need to be much.

Nicer than Corelle in what way? The old stuff made by Dow Corning is fantastic.

Go buy a stack of pot and pan pads. Either that or buy a roll of the waffle type pad material.

^^^^^^Good Advice^^^^^^

or in a pinch just use paper towels - if they get soiled just toss them.

One other thing to think about is service number? 4-6 Max as paper or plastic when numbers increase.

Last but not least just use what you used in the TT as it will work just fine.

Best of Luck,

We have some china and nice antique wine glasses that ride fine just sitting in the cabinet. But, I don't off road too often and drive sensibly...[emoticon]..usually..[emoticon]....Dennis

Somehow I'm thinking that big motorhome would not bounce around as much as a TT; enough to break dishes? It's not a rear kitchen model is it?

After 6 years of RV'ing full time, every piece of non durable tableware/cookware/stemware I've previously owned has met it's unfortunate demise. My rule, . . . if it can't survive a 3 foot drop to solid concrete without damage, I leave it at home.

We never broke a dish or glass - even wine glasses by storing 'as is'. Of course, you can't have a lot of extra space in the cabinet for things to slide around. If you do, store some rolls of paper towels in the cabinet.
