    Default ladder mount suggestions

    We got a new compact 14' extension ladder to mount horizontally on top of the side box on our light rescue. Cant find any commercially available mount. Anyone have some suggestions or examples of a thrifty mount that would hold the ladder without significant complexity? Thanks.

    Do you have anybody with metal fabricating ability? Have them make a short, 6 inches or so, box to slide the one end into and use some angle iron to make a rail for the other end to sit in and use a couple of screw eyes and a short bungie to hold it in place.
