Ideas needed to prevent chair travel rash

Our unit came with bubble wrap on the ends of the wooden chair backs, The chairs for the dinette are strapped tightly together when in tow and the ends are in contact. DW wants the bubble wrap off. I'm thinking a strip of the heavy felt (that you use for the furniture legs on wooden floors)? Other possibilities?

Thinking of the one-sided super sticky stuff. So yes permanent.

We use a pillow sham.

We just tighten the straps enough to keep them from tipping and they don't rub on each other. Of course, we also have shocks on the trailer, so it rides pretty smooth and doesn't bounce but very rarely.

Plus you have your TT tires balanced.

I set mine a few inches away from the walls and each other. They never seem to move, no marks on the chairs or the walls. I guess the carpet holds them from moving around.

Going to have to try leaving some separation. Guess I'm just under the impression that there is significant vibration/movement when traveling. But perhaps not - the last trip the toilet bowl brush/container was left out beside the toilet. Surprised to see it still standing in the exact same spot when we opened the trailer. I'll keep the pillow sham idea on reserve! THX

I like OldCoot just tighten them down and leave a gap between them and the blinds and they don't see to run into anything. Really depends on the route, some are smoother than others. Don't usually find anything strewn about normally.
