Tips for transporting Dobsonian 5"?

Hi, I am thrilled with my new tabletop Heritage Dobsonian 5" for backyard viewing.
Now wanting to take it to a dark sky area (daughter's farm) so the grandchildren can join me in exploring our skies.
This will be a 200km car trip - the final 30kms on a dirt (bumpy) road.
Are there any suggestions out there to retain integrity of collimation? Apart from nursing the tube in my arms - I will be driving!!
Thanks for any hints! : }
