For storing a foam pad check out the "Space Bags", those big thick ziplock bags used fo clothing storage. Ziplock also makes them now, but the space bag folks now make them in suit/dress length, which probably would make it possible to just fold the mattress in the middle and insert it. Once you suck or squeeze the air out--those bags really squeeze things down, same way as the "self-inflating" camping mattresses, or better. And of course they keep it wet/dry, as it may be. (I'd let it dry out a bit after getting out of bed before stowing it.)
