Having had stuff fly out before I'm inclined to mount secure latches on every door. There are some "baby locks" that work quite well.

Styrofoam plates are pretty quiet while driving any roads,

Cabinets and doors look great Doug.

Now that is one to conjure with sledd. They make styrofoam peas for packing material, maybe try them out. Maybe you can patent a new invention.
Better peas than beer rollin around.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm going to have a small 'railing' behind each door to prevent things from sliding up against it......was more worried about the doors coming open from their own weight while the bus was flexing. I'm trying to avoid having to unhook any latches every time I open a door, so may just bungee them while in transit. The self-closing hinges keep them closed while parked, even on a quite unlevel grade.

Never had an RV before, so didn't know how the magnets would hold. A friend suggested the "super" magnets, but who wants to yank on one of those every time you open a door.
