Thank you all so much for the replies.
I did think about the rubber waffle material and may start out with that just to be safe to protect the dishes.
As some mentioned the coach rides so nice and smooth there may not be an issue at all, but just wanted to get some data from folks before trying.
We have the stemware in nice cardboard boxes with dividers, so they should be ok.

We use the best paper plates that Dixie makes.

you can buy rolls of shelf liner and cut it to size. put on between each plate and they don't go anywhere. they stay in place and do not rattle

I'm probably the only person who travels with Royal Doulton stoneware. I bought them 40+ years ago when I first moved out of my parents house and except for the soup bowls which broke years ago I think I've got all 8 place settings and serving pieces still.

When we moved them to the RV we got a roll of that waffle anti-slip pad and cut squares to go between each plate or bowl. Even with the old 5th wheel that caught air with a few really horrendous potholes bypassing Boston we never lost a piece. The air bag suspension in our A will be even better.

Paper plates. They won't break and you don't have to wash them.

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.

So you don't keep any good stuff in your house either? None of that will survive that same 3 foot drop! All my dinnerware is real china. I am home in my RV and want the same comforts I would have in a house.


What I post is my 2 cents and nothing more. Please don't read anything into my post that's not there. If you disagree, that's OK.
Can't we all just get along?

Use Correl (the old stuff) that I've had since the '70's. I've learned from bitter experience to put the RV'ers shelf liner under 4 plates to keep them from being flung out of the cabinet when a curb jumps out in front of the RV's rear tires. (I have saucers, small dinner, large dinner, all stacked one on top of the next, and then small bowls on top of those, every 4th plate has a piece of liner under it). Large bowls I don't worry about much.

The glasses I've just resigned myself to have glasses with scratch marks on them from travel vibration. Wine glasses I keep in the towel cabinet on and between towels.

Cheap paper plates, put between each of your fine china plates, will protect them and minimize the noise as you go bouncing down the road.
A stack of silverware, wrapped with a rubber band, will also travel quietly.

We use the felt pads between the corelle. We also use the waffle rubber stuff.

I did explode a corelle (same ones) in our 5er when I left the cupboard open. Tiny shards everywhere. I told my wife not to run the garbage disposal till I could get all those out - she never got it.
