Like you, I use the front storage box.

The Fastway E2 hitch plus the bars go in the box, and the two clips are left in their respective slots on the trailer side.
Major parts are out of the way, secure and dry. Obviously I wouldn't want that load in the box during travel, so it just makes sense to keep it all in there when you're unhooked for camping/seasonal storage.
