Storing trailer hitch when not towing

Where do you store your hitch when not towing? What about the bars? For those that use a sway unit where do you store that? I made mine to store the hitch and bars in one unit.

Got the holder from Summit racing and then fab up the mounts for the bars. Used some angle iron to make the sway mount and used the clamps for the camper shell to hold it in place.
