LOL Many of us have that kind of "remembering what not to do"....

Seems funny to me, but the owner's manuals for every RV that I've seen in the past 10 years has reduced or completely omitted the "suggestions for packing" section.... Used to be, manufacturers suggested putting heavy items on the lower shelves (helps keep the CG lower and improve handling), but apparently that's no longer important, since they've "flipped the axles" to raise the trailer (and the CG) making the trailers even more "unstable in curves".... I suppose it's those "ST tires" that have eliminated the need to be concerned with trailer handling.....

Packing heavy items in upper cabinets ??? Nah, no longer a concern (but I can't figure out why not) .... YMMV

Totally agree, and we haven't even taken delivery of our Cougar.

Awkward Shelf idea...

Have you thought about installing a roll-out shelf. That would allow easier access to the items in the very back.
