I've seen this idea, not sure it it'll work on your TT. I'm planning to add something like this to my TT this spring to the small storage door on the side, right up front.

Went to Walmart in sporting goods found a padded rifle case with an outside pocket $10. Greasy bars go in the main compartment. Locks and pins in the outside pocket. Case goes in front storage compartment.

I made a plywood box the same length as my bars...when at campsite, put swaybars and springbars in it and stored in the bed of the truck. I have a cap on the truck.
The rreceiver stayed on the truck locked on the hitck the greasy ball covered with a rubber cap.

I lay mine across the tongue, and cover them with legs from an old pair of jeans. I store them with the trunnion connection nested into the crooks (Reese spring bars) and just use 1 cover per end.

I have done the same. I made a nice plywood box with some handgrips in the end. It can stay in the back of the truck under a locked tonneau cover. I put all the pins, sway bar and pipe to tights get the bars.

This site is full of great suggestions! Thanks, all!

So... Does anybody store the TT with the entire WDH attached/assembled and in place? Now I'm thinking if I can pull the square shank out of the truck and put the ball back in the tongue, with the spring bars in the head, then all the greasy parts will be assembled and thus protected. Just need to lock it all together for security... Plus I won't be running around with that big ball head on the back of my truck.

Me thinks the hitch head would tilt forward with the spring bars up in the air.......plus that is a lot of trouble.
