Where to store the round sink cover

Our 25FB came with a white cutting board type heavy round sink cover. On our first trip we learned that the cover cannot stay in place while towing because it jumps out and easily could cause damage when sliding around the trailer. We have since then tried to find a good storage location. Storing it in the clothing closet vertically is not a good idea because it started to warp in warm weather. Currently we try under the dinette seat cushion, which also is a good place for storing it when we set up camp. But I am wondering whether there are better options?

So, you don't have it on towing and don't have it on when camping....it sounds like home is the best place to keep it.

How about under one of the seat cushions, or under the bed mattress.

We leave it at home. She needs the sink when making meals, so she uses a cutting board - strainer that fits over the sink.

Not during driving and not when using the sink (washing dishes). The other times, it is in place because it extends the counter area.

We stick it upright between the seat cushion and the wall under the TV.

Like two other posts, ours goes under one of the dinette seat cushions. Never moved in three Airstreams and lots of miles.

We found it to be a useless item and stored it in our home. It also adds unnecessary weight.

We seldom used ours, so we leave it at home.

I have always put mine in the closet and forget about it since I never use it.

I leave mine over the sink. Never had it come free while under way and is convient and easy to use where it belongs.

Ours lives under the couch cushion... always. I like CRH's idea... it probably should live at home to keep an eye on our other cutting boards while we travel.

Under the dinette cushion.

On another note, you may want to check out this thread where a person made a cutout in their cutting board to make it more functional.

Where to Store Round Sink Cover

I store mine vertically between the wall and the seat back cushion in the living room area adjacent to the cushion snap. It doesn't move around and is easily retrievable.
