    I have seen people store them in rolling suitcases. If it stays at home, perhaps a Rubbermaid type of tote that is the right size would do for the machine, tubes, mask, etc. It would also keep it clean when not in use.

      Hubby got COPD from nerve damage from a chest tube being pulled out when it grabbed a nerve for his diaphragm and paralyzed it. We were just up on the floor having his lung function checked at mayo clinic and there were a bunch of people their with their machines. Most of them used the rolling luggage to transport them, them bring them to have them checked when they have appointments. We live about two miles from the clinic, so we see a lot of that kind of things when he has appointments. They even have a store for new masks, tubing, cleaning systems etc. on that floor.

    Not sure why you are storing a c-pap machine, is this during the hours when not in use? There are ways to cover them if that is what you are after, a disguise if you will. Or is this along term plan?

    I think I would get one of the new cleaning machines to store mine, as they harbor lots of bacteria if you don't clean daily. https://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=cpap+cleaning+machine&sourceid=opera&ie=UTF-8&oe=UTF-8

    it hasn’t really been resolved, but I have some ideas that I already used.
    I took off the entire back of my nightstand, and saved the nails. my drawer is too shallow to set my c pap in, but I put a power strip in the back and plugged in a power cord to my phone that I run through the drawer. Then I have a So Clean machine, so I got a sliding wire drawer for the bottom. I also keep 1 distilled water in there I run my c pap tube through the front when I need to use it. Works great! But I really want a slim rolling cart that fits between the bed and nightstand to hold the c pap, so I can see the display in the front. Also, I found out that if you have a humidifying Tube, it may make a chugging sound. at that time, the tube needs to be up higher from the c pap. I have some Command hooks that hold cords in back of my headboard. I can use those to hold the tube up and another to keep it close to my pillow, even though I have the c pap pillow.,
    i do want the bedside thing for travel!
