How to keep glass plates from breaking in an RV

Have you ever worried about your glass RV dishes getting broken during a travel day? I have, and that’s why I’m sharing this hack with you today!

We started traveling full-time in our 5th wheel right after we got back from our honeymoon. It was our first “home,” and we had all our possessions with us, including the dishes we were given for our wedding.

I was worried about them getting broken, so I asked Tucker to think of a way to protect them during travel days.

What he came up with was genius! He used a non-adhesive easy liner in between each of the plates to provide grip and prevent them from sliding around.

Here’s how you can do it yourself:

Materials you will need to protect your RV dishes

You’ll only need two items in addition to your dishes.

  1. Easy Liner
  2. Scissors

You can find the Easy Liner at a local store or order it on Amazon here.

First up, cut the liner to size.

We didn’t measure precisely how many rectangles we needed; we just eyeballed it. Once we got one section cut to size, we used it as a template for the others.

You will need one large rectangle between each larger plate and one on the top and a small rectangle between each of the smaller plates.

Next, place a rectangle between each plate.

It’s so easy, but it makes a world of difference!

We’ve been using this system for over a year now, and we’ve never had a broken plate! Win, win!

You can also do this for any other breakable dishes you may have.

Do you use glass RV dishes, or do you only travel with disposable plates?

I hope you enjoyed this RV tip.
