TV transport

I have a 32" flat screen TV that I use on the outside of my trailer. I've been using the box it came in but it's looking pretty bad and after changing the furniture in the trailer I need to find a place to store it with something not as bulky. Something like a padded sleeve would work fine but I can't seem to find one. I'm wondering what others do?

Just lay it face down on the bed.

That would work. But we don't always use it. I just need to be able to protect it and pack it away. But thanks for the suggestion.

Buy a pc of thick carpet and lay it face down on it in the storage area. That's what we do with our outside TV.

The insulated grocery totes that my wife brings groceries home in work ok for putting my outside tv in and then I put it under the bed.

Sometimes I just wrap it in a blanket and put it under the bed.

Buy a pc over 2x the size of the TV and zip tie it into a pouch. I made one out of a scrap of material used to make 500,000 gal portable fuel tanks.

That's what I'm thinking but using carpet like OldCoot was talking about. Fold it over, sew it together and fashion a handle into it. That will work!!

Go to Goodwill and get an old quilt blanket and make a cover. Lot softer on the screen than carpet.
