Overhead bin measurement

Could someone with a 5.0ta (2019 model) give me the inside measurements of the overhead compartment in the kitchen area? Making a plate holder for our new trailer and want to make sure it will fit😊. Our plates are to large for the plastic ones . Thanks

You know that residential pottery plates should not be used due to their sizes and weight in your new Escape. We use lightweight corelle plates and or paper. Pottery products, like cast iron should be left home unless needed for a special dish. Needless weight will impact your towing performance. Smaller and lightweight and multiuse should be the main focus of things for packing

Guess I’ll have to get a cure for Castironitis. That Lodge 16 inch Dutch oven weighs in at 38 lbs I think. And glass beer bottles “Oh Lordy”.

I answered the other question about the distance from the wall to the outer face of the overhead cabinet, in the 21 is 14 1/2".

I'm going to go really far out on a limb and suggest that the 5.0TA overhead cupboards are the same.

My plates are just fine, stacked, in my old 17B.

Thanks Ron . I plan on staking my plates as you have but setting them on a simple round thin plywood cut out the size of the plate with sides made of bendable plywood.
