Storage for Hard Top, Coupe Top? SL 450 1977

I have a SL 450 1997 with a hard top, soft top.
Does anyone have advice about storing the hard top when it is not on the car? I have heard that if the the hard top is set down a specific way, it can warp.
Does anyone use a carriage to store it. My carpenter and I were thinking about building a carriage to slide it into for easy/safe storage in the summers.
If so, do you have any designs for such a carriage?
Many thanks.
