We are about 2 hours into transferring the stuff from our old motorhome into our ‘new’ 66 Broadway. 
I occurs to us that, whilst there is a rack for plates, there does not appear to be a designed-in method of securely stowing our coffee mugs. 
Any experience based solutions out there. We are aware of things like the plastic trays etc that can be bought. Really just wondering if we are missing something from our van.

I don’t remember there being a unit for holding mugs in my 2017 Nuevo (We have some expandable rubber lattice holders that go on the mugs) bought from a motorhome show.

The first thing I did with the metal rack was to place it in the loft as all plates rattle in transit 

I use a strip antislip mat in between all the plates and dishes (no rattles)

I can’t remember if we added 2 or only 1 but we have 3 of these in the crockery cupboard.

Each holds 2 mugs, the top one padded with a circle of fleecy fabric  to stop rattling.

I stack all plates, bowls and so on and they fit into a cloth bag sitting in the cupboard rather than in racks. We have not broken anything and they do not rattle as I tie the handles of the bag firmly to keep the contents tightly packed.

You beat me to it Quilter.

We used to use those and they are very good, but now prefer a wire basket - of which needless to say I can find no mention anywhere.

There's a poor picture of it on the right of this image. I was not satisfied with the arrangement supplied by A/S so I built our own version, which is far more secure and stores a lot more crockery in a far smaller space.

We have something called a Muggi multi cup holder.  Secures 4 mugs. I believe we bought it from Robinson's Caravans, Chesterfield but I'm sure you'd get one from any caravan accessory store.  
Any additional visitors beyond that number, bring your own mugs!

Thanks. Actually ordered a Muggi of tinterweb a couple of hours ago. Sounds like a good option now.
