Is there anything against it?
Seems fine, but I would as said put it in place and leave it a few days to settle in then try to move it, if it stays put, sorted, if not time to try again.

Looking at the picture I'd say the tape was superfluous as it is not allowing either material to work to their best, I can see the idea, I just don't think it'll work as intended as the materials are not being allowed to work as intended.

To be correct, you only need the matting where the feet are anyway, the rest will have no weight on it.

The tape is where the weight is, on the protruding parts.
I forgot, before I can do any of that anyway I have to remove the two holders.

I had a bit of luck, to take the oven out I put it on the sack barrow, was just wondering the best way to lift it into the van and my neighbour came, so he lifted it in there for me, sometime luck happens.

Do you really want that kind of weight as a loose cannon in the back of your van? You never know when you'll have to stand on the brakes and that short wall at the side - even if it's towards the front of the van - might not be enough protection in all circumstances. I think there's a reason they're usually built in.

It wont be loose Jean the double sided tap and the weight will hold it onto the surface. They are built in of course when they are made as is everything else, but everything can be moved about.

I'm with Jean on that idea, it's not just the sedately driving around, search and find some motorhome crash test videos!
The amount of stuff that flies around is frightening and something the size and weight of the microwave will definitely add to the chaos of pieces flying around in the event of a crash.

Either fix / enclose securely or leave it at home.

This one is a bit extreme but I guess you'll get the idea

This company should be ashamed of themselves garbage.. wood frame construction.

They are built like crap 💩 that’s for sure

You really think double-sided tape would hold against the force of that weight wanting to still move forward when you step on the brakes?

Yes, everything can be moved about but that's not to say it should.

Obviously each person has to weigh their own risk but that would be one way beyond my own comfort zone.
