Oh great another mod I need to do ! Pat

Having never pulled a trailer, I'm wondering if the glasses in the top will say in place while you're driving. Or do you move the glasses elsewhere and put them out when you're at your campsite?

I've been told things can really move around in a trailer, so I've been wondering if things like this stay in place. As well as coats and hats on hooks and stuff like that.

Nice looking cup holders, by the way. Someone sure has some talent in the wood shop!

Thanks, Laura,

Karen designed them with enough height so that the goblets and mugs should stay in place when they inevitably bounce. The shelf liner cushion should also help. We'll road test on rough gravel this Wednesday. We've actually never had anything fall off our hooks, shelves, cabinets, etc., in 4+ years of towing Escapes.

Klaus

PS: the wine-goblets are GoVino -- acrylic

Happy to report that the wine goblet/cup holder successfully passed the shake test. After 3+ miles of rough & rutted road, the cups & glasses were all intact and in place.

Very nice work! The VHB tape is super strong, but would it pull off the "veneer" on the paneling?
I like Alf's shelf too, as there cannot be too much storage space.

Never had any problem with VHB pulling off the paneling veneer. But the goblet/ cup
holder is definitely a permanent installation. The reinforcing bolts make that a major decision.

Thanks for the info. I belong to the Baglo's no hole group.
