Mounting oars inside a trailer, anyone, anyone.

Has anyone found a good way to mount your oars inside your trailer during transport? I am sick of them just bouncing around back there. I have broken a handle, worn off the grips and the tips. Yeah, I live and drive on a bumpy ass road, but I need a better way to easily strap them down. Any suggestions? Looking for a slick mounting system. Thanks team.

I had a cheapo tractor supply trailer that I had built a box on, and I got pretty tired of oar damage too, and my solution was to get one 20 inch 2 x 6 use a hole saw to drill 4 evenly spaced holes down the center (I think I used a 3 incher) and then rip it in half. I lined them with self adhesive mini cell and then drilled the ends for nrs straps. Tada Saddles!
I screwed the saddles down to the trailer deck, and then way less mayhem.
I tried something with PVC pipe too, but that was a fail.

I strap them to the frame or strap all the oars together so that they bounce around less

Well, this has been working pretty well for me: D rings on the trailer bed.
