I already have some stemless plastic wine glasses (double gasp!) that I had to use around the pool so that settles that for me, ha!

As far as clothing storage in upper cabinets, I read that the medium eBags packing cubes work really nicely for keeping clothes organized. I remember as a kid we threw our clothes in paper grocery sacks to store in the old Winnebago.

Anyone have some quick measurement of the depth of the overhead storage space and/or other handy ideas for using the space efficiently?

Can't go out and check right now ....but I think the depth of our uppers are 8-9 inches ( interior depth ) ....have found anti-slip type rubber shelf liners help -from dollar stores . We still use glass for wine .....haven't really broken any travelling ....

How much padding do you use for them? In other words, how do you stop them from breaking?

Not really any more than a dish cloth around the bowl - place glass bowl down stem up .....we do a good job of breaking glasses at home and a couple or three left from a set are our trailer glasses .....have found that something to stop slippage in the uppers keeps things in place very well - that and not too loosely placed ....

If they are stemless you might get away with socks, it's what we use for coffee mugs and such. Of course mugs probably stand up to more then wine glasses.

Some of the wine glasses these days are huge .....thinking that the ones with the really large bowls are probably more sensitive ....we tend to have " less currently fashionable " stemware either crystal or some that look like crystal .....they are a little tougher ....

Don't waste money on cheap wine glasses from the dollar store. I broke two out of six the first time I tried to wash them - just using a dish rag on the inside of the bowl.

Different topic but ever cooked with a small rice cooker while camping (with elect)? I just made mac and cheese in mine lovely home made - even got a nice brown crust easyer then the box crap but home made cooked all in one easy to clean pot. Of course it's as healthy as well not really healthy at all but great comfort food.
