All I did was out plastic bins in there to more or less keep things in place. Keep plates, cups, plastic cutlery and other paper products up there. I guess I'm not very creative, but it works. Can't see how you can keep much up there anyway, but I know that others with much more talent than I will post pics or advise you soon.

Pretty much the same here… Mini bins from Walmart fit nicely and keep everything in place. One for bowls, one for cups, one for oil & coffee supplies, a narrow single silverware bin holds spices (hidden at the far right end). Since we set up an outside kitchen, the bins make it easy to move stuff outside. The bottom is open-weave anti-skid shelf liner.
We use the clear plastic bins that greens (lettuce spring mix/spinach etc.) come in. They are not as tall as the Walmart mini-bins so easier to get things out of them without needing to remove an entire bin. Also disposable if something like olive oil were to spill.
We do have green smoothies many mornings so the "greens" bins are always in supply.

I used plate holders similar to the ones in the photo but mine where wire - they helped a lot to keep things from shifting around & easier to get in and out. Used a none skid matting under them and put glasses between the wire racks.
To keep spices etc from moving around I used small plastic bins that were short enough to fit in the overheads.
I am frustrated with my over the kitchenette cabinets in my scamp. The long tunnel with three doors is NOT working for me. I have some ideas, but id love to see what overs have done!!!
My choice as I have done on similar cabinets would be to make one door the length of the cabinets and to hinge at the bottom with stays or straps on the ends which would allow the door to double as a shelf when opened .it is very convenient at night to place things there such as my wife's purse and clothes you will be wearing in the morning.
I bought 2 tambour door hardware kits and cut them to fit. The hard part was fabricating the slats, making a suitable pressure jig, and gluing the slats to fabric. I used Douglas Fir throughout the trailer, and wanted the tambour doors to match.
You can buy entire kits, as long as you like the wood (or metal) that's offered. With some basic skills and a lot of planning, I think many people can make these (without being a retired cabinetmaker with lots of time in the winter). Here's one of many sites that sell these:
So, these are practical and fun to use. I don't want to hijack this thread, but I'm glad to answer any questions that anyone might have about the process. Just send me an email (PM) and I'll do my best.
