We use our Coolers. But they are heavy and not easy to move full of ice.

AGAIN.. The metal (car port) poles will worry the paint off you ride



Would it be possible to slide pool noodles over the metal parts that could make contact with the ride?

No way.
Car ports have 1.5" to 2.5" diameter steel poles.
Just scoot the whole damned thing away from your vehicle and stake it down real good with rebar and ratchet straps.
