If anything, capping the ends will prevent painful scrapes and bumps on the head while you're loading and unloading the rest of your gear.

I've installed miles of underground pipe and conduit, plastic and metal, and driven many leagues with it tied on a rack, with no problem. bumpy, panic stops, whatever.
the key is tension, and friction.
Barring or lessening either of those, the end caps are a good idea, and necessary.
But, a wrap, and a good tight cinch, mid span that actually flexes the bundle, and you have it. Self tensioning and friction.
