Ball mount stays locked to the truck. WDH and sway bars get locked in the storage compartment.

While in storage I put ours inside the door of the trailer on a sheet of cardboard to protect the floor.

Hitch head goes in a large Rubbermaid tub in the truck. Bars go in a take-off of the stinky slinky fence post mod, using PVC pipe, under the frame. See pics.
