First you have the cargo drop, it holds everything off the floor. Second is a large quality canvas tarp, 12x16 is good or so. Unfold it all, and lay it on the cargo drop, up the sides of the tubes and so. Then throw what you got bring all pretty like on/in the tarp. Then fold over the excess tarp kinda like wrapping paper.Finally, I use a spider strap (simalar to cargo drop), but you could use the cargo net. Basically the tarp keeps it all together, drier and doesn't shift around or or slip through. It works good.
