I made a toolbox like out of 3\4" plywood...I put my stuff inside and locked in the bed of the truck (I have a cap on) and the head is locked on the receiver.

Mine are the variety with the chains on the end of the bars. Hopefully you can understand from the pic; the chains hook onto where they hook when deployed, the bar end is hung across the stab jack cross piece, and the tow safety chain is hung on the lift extension on the bracket. Then run a long shank padlock thru the chains to keep the honest people from "borrowing" them. When I'm home, I don't use the lock because the TT is stored in a locked building.

I have the Equalizer hitch. I keep the bars stored in an old camping chair bag under the back seat in the truck while camping. The hitch stays in the receiver with a lock pin. At home, everything is stored in the garage.

Wish I could do that but I've got twin 90ah deep cycle batteries up front which take up all that space.

I really like the idea of storing the bars in a shotgun case. Boy that would make people think at the campground when you are hooking up LOL. I usually keep mine in the front storage compartment. The hitch stays in the receiver with a locking hitch pin

One good whack of your ankle on the hitch and you too will store it elsewhere.

WD Storage

I measured my length and went to Walmart and bought a cheap rifle vinyl zipper case. Store in trailer in storage and the back of the truck while camping.

We leave ours on all the time. It is just to heavy to take on and off. Our TV is not a daily driver, so there it stays.

The bars goes in the back of the truck when camping and in the front compartment when the trailer is not in use.

On my '14 Flagstaff 27BESS I attached brackets to the aluminum supports in the ceiling of my front storage pass-thru. When not in use, I slid the bars in the brackets. Easy-peasy.
Now, for the hitch head, I had my friendly wielder attach a 2" receiver to the front of the tt at the curbside frame......
