Securing Bedroom washer dryer for travel

Our stacked washer dryer was installed with 2 floor brackets at the front of the washer. That leaves the back of the units free to bounce up if the tow vehicle hits a bump. That would allow the front of the dryer to possibly hit the sliding mirrored door. For now I've used a skylight cushion folded in half, positioned between the top front of the dryer and the sliding door to prevent damage. Not sure if there's a better way to keep the stacker from moving against the door. Has anyone had damage to their door or installed something to secure for travel?


Thanks

The dryer is attached with a bracket that is also on the rear. If your washer moves and allows the dryer to tilt that much you had to hit one h--l of a bump and the wheels probably came off the ground too! Your washer has concrete counter weights on the drum.

The washer and dryer are attached to each other front and back but the washer is not secured at the rear feet to the floor. I can pull the top of the dryer forward with some effort. Like it has been said by many. The trailer is like a moving earth quake not to mention the washer dryer being above the pin and truck rear wheels. Hit a pot hole or highway expansion joints and there can be quite a kick. I wouldn't want to bet that it couldn't happen. Rather be pro-active.

I secured my dryer with an L bracket attached to the closet wall. I will take a pic of it when I get home.
