What to do with glasses, bottles, plates while driving?

Driving around on pothole filled roads, thru cities with mouthbreathers, etc. is going to make for a hazardous environment for anything breakable. Pinterest is evil. I haven't even cut the roof off my bus yet bus I want to get to the "fun stuff" of the interior. The below is made of pallets which was ok until I rediscovered real wood. I've got a nice chunk of purpleheart that I want to play with.

Anywho, what kind of systems do people have for glasses? Plates can stack with some of the rubber shelf gripper stuff in between to keep them from banging together over speed bumps. Ikea probably sells 37 different drawers for plates as well. Glasses and bottles are my main concern at the moment.

The fridge is a whole 'nother scary adventure but I'm not ready for that just yet.

Oooo purpleheart is beautiful wood. Can't wait to see what you do with that. In terms of keeping stuff in one piece, i was wondering the same thing. Pack it in tight? So theres not room for it to move. Or maybe some kind of cargo net, tie down set up. Not sure whats best. Theres plenty of smart, creative people here. Someone has the answer.

The shelf on that rack I posted would be higher and drilled so the beer glasses sit in it. Like below only no feet and that would be the shelf.

For the bottom tray and wine glasses, I would want to countersink for the glass base and then have only a slot opening for it to slide out of. That way the glass can't bounce out diagonally on a pothole.

Since it'll be just me and the gf, 4 glasses of each would be more than enough even if I should suddenly want guests.

Well these suckers aren't going anywhere. Would be a pain in the a$s getting a glass down unless you hinged and latched one or both of the ends.

Thats similar to what i was thinking some kind of lock down so to speak for glasses. Why does it seem like everything in the bus is twice as hard to do.

Oh it gets worse I'm sure. You can't just leave the glasses hanging by the stem like that. They either need a divider or be spaced far enough apart that they don't hit each other or the wall when turning. They are nothing more than a pendulum just sitting there.

Cans of Treehouse, Alchemist, or Wormtown and my stainless growlers filled with my supper hoppy dipa straight from my keezer. No need for bottles (I hate bottling)

Ok so those beers and SS growlers are new to me. The growlers I have are glass. I had the soda kegs for awhile but never used them much. As much of a pain as it is to bottle, it's easier to grab a 6 pack and go somewhere. Not that I've brewed anything in years either.

I have a "growler" that the wife paid close to $70.00 for and 3 - 1/2 gal double insulated water jugs from Wally world that cost 12 each and work just as well. I keg because of time constraints.
