Basically what you're after is an adjustable ladder rack.
Go try Hans Steel near the cop shop at Yamanto. They sell a lot of stuff for trailers and might have a bolt on solution. If not, they sell steel and have welders on site, so should be able to knock something up..

If your handy with a cutter and welder, here is an idea for you.
This is the first prototype.
I had to replace the 2 front legs, they were not strong enough.
The side to side motion caused the bottom of them to crack.
I also added a brace on the front.
The bunnings gul wing box has a 40lt water tank and a 150ah battery in it plus assorted kit lights, chainsaw, seats and stove etc.
The trailer has been to the high country 4 times now with no problems.

The 3rd & 4th pictures are the finished product.

Hope this gives you some idea`s.

Russ-all fabrications - counihan st 17 mile rocks. They have done such mods for a couple of our guys at work. They do general jobbing for me all the time.

Thanks, I will reach out to them to see if they can knock up what I need. You actually gave me a great idea (don't know why I didn't think of that before *DoH*) and I gave the trailer manufacturer a call and they actually have out of the box ladder racks for my trailer. I'll be getting a set of them so will just need a tray done up to mount on them.

@Toyasaurus yea I'll be getting setup in much the same fashion as yours. Unfortunately I'm not much of a welder so I'll reach out to some of the people that's been recommended to knock something up for me.

@cam04 thanks mate. Will give them a call as well.
