We do not have gas struts on the upper cabinet doors in our RV. It has always been a hassle to hold a door open while putting things inside or taking them out, so I installed a baggage-door holder on the ceiling for each cabinet. Problem solved.

Tech editor’s note: Be sure to use properly sized screws so you don’t breach the roof. Also, you want to keep the screws from pulling through the ceiling material. Using double-sided mounting tape in addition to the screws would be helpful.
