Froli plate holder

OK so it is obvious that I am geeting excited about my new van and all the preparation! Currently my Swift has plate and mug holders built in to a locker. The new Burstner does not so I am hoping to find a good system for holding plates, bowls , mugs etc.
At present anything that does not fit into the holders are wrapped in tea towels to prevent rattling. It drives me up the wall and has done for 6 years!!

The Froli holders look good, but I don't need space for 6 plates and it doesn't have a holder for bowls. Is it possible to cut them down? Is there something else you use?

I would prefer something that does not involve too many tea towels, that grip mat stuff or any other substance that effectively means unwrapping crockery takes longer than the cooking! Thanks.

I had to check out what a froli plate holder was. Looks as if you need a fair6bit of headroom to use it.

I just store my plates horizontally, dinner plates on the bottom, side plates on top, with a small section of non-slip between the 2 sizes. It's an easy thing to pull out a plate from the middle of the bundle. It's a bit more difficult if you need to use a plate that's on 'sticky' but I hardly ever have to do that.

Bowls are just stacked, on a sticky base.

Ditto above. Over the years I'm realising that even on the worst roads in Europe and North Africa, very little moves at all in the van lockers and all the elaborate packing round things is just not necessary. Some metal items ( pans, oven sheet etc) might need a bit of non-stick stuff or a round of cloth or paper tissue between them to stop them vibrating on certain roads but we've not lost anything yet by simply putting them away as normal in the cupboard. If you have overhead lockers with no lip to prevent things falling out when you open the locker then you could always stack your plates, and dishes in a cloth shopping bag and tie the handles.

I use a small square (+-4-5") of that non-slip mat stuff between each plate, bowl. Cups on a single layer on shelf bottom. Easy to interleave after washing up. Taking out plates, just throw squares on top of the remaining pile. Rattles sorted.

Bought some - what woud I call them? - an extending/expanding shelf guard, at Hymer Dealer showroom in France.

Right hand page, centre, white guards (various options but the single one does it for me). and below it you see the non-slip shelf liner.
