For the glassware & ceramic cups I don't use often, I wrap them with packing foam sheets. I no longer have the box, but they are 12" X12" sheets of 1/16" foam designed to go between dishes when packing. a box of 250 sheets was inexpensive - I thing I got it at Staples.

I also do my best to pack items so that the soft stuff protects the fragile...

Thanks everyone, many good solutions. Eva has bought plastic plates and an assortment of bowls, we have cookware from previous camping. Now it's off to Walmart and the dollar store for containers and a roll of that non-skid stuff.

The Dollar Tree has the non-skid stuff, too!

I always look there first when shopping for little things like that...

Maybe this is off-topic regarding what you're looking for, but we leave the Scamp cupboards relatively empty and load supplies in one large tote that we keep in the back seat of the tow vehicle. Nothing moves and it's just as quick to retrieve a pan from the van as it is to wrestle it out of those tiny cabinets. We tow with a town and country van (actually bigger than the 13' Scamp) so we have lots more room in the van than in the camper. Things accumulate in the Scamp while camping and when it's time to go, I just throw them back in the tote and load it back in the van. Am I a heathen?

Interesting. Various people have posted that they don't use the stove, the sink, the toilet, the refrigerator, and the shower. At least one couple sleeps in the tow vehicle. So, what ever works for you.

LOL, Exactly what I was gonna say!

George, Don't worry about all this stuff. Get out and enjoy your trailer, organization will come as you travel a few times and figure out what works best for you two! We each have our own camping style. Get out and find yours!

The water tank...

I think the only thing I've never seen an "I don't use it" post about is the lights!

I remember exactly this situation on a Sea Scout boat in the 1960s, including one meal of steamed jam sponge for main course and beef stew for dessert.

Captain Scott when he went to the Antartic 101 years ago had the foresight to write with a chinagraph pencil on all tins specifying the contents - I've read that they were still quite readable today.

Maybe a bit off topic, but per post #22:

I have probably inspected 75 or more Toyota motorhomes for wannabe buyers and, at least 90% of the time a sellers claim of: "We never used the _____", was code for "It doesn't work".
That possibility is raised one level further when the seller claims "The last owner said it worked, but we never used it"

When I crewed on a sail boat we had the same problem with cans in the bilge. The cook of the day got to pick three cans to create the main meal with, but we also had rice, macaroni and potatoes. The most memorable meal was rice and three cans of fruit (2 peach, 1 pear).

George - just get out with your trailer and enjoy figuring out the details as you go along. Something new to learn every trip, and you have been introduced to the idea that there isn't one right way to camp!
