Packing the fridge for travel


One of the challenges faced when moving an RV is how to keep stuff from moving when the RV bounces down the road.

We have used extra towels to pack between the dishes, which works pretty well at keeping the glass items from rattling and breaking. Also have used the little $5 blankets from IKEA shoved into drawers to stop items, chairs and other things from having too much movement.

The one remaining item that blankets and towels do not make much sense is the refrigerator. When heading out for a trip it is not much of a problem since we almost always over pack the food. But when the weekend / trip is over and its time to pack up again, it seems that the fridge needs some extra attention. We have used fruit, empty Tupper-ware and extra beer cans (full) to fill the gap. Essentially trying to stop items in the fridge from bouncing around and damaging the inside.

Tripped across Suction Bungee while browsing the Pinterest Happy Camper & RV – Inside Storage & Tips. It’s a set of bungee cords with suction cups. Seems like a reasonable way to hold things tight while traveling and would be convenient since they can be shoved in a drawer when not in use.

May be worth trying one day, not 100% certain that it will hold up to the rigors of RV travel but for a few bucks it may be worth trying.
