Homegrown BOB Racks
Anyone out there have pics of homemade tool racks for a BOB trailer? Any other interesting configurations for carrying common tools (chainsaws, rakes, etc) in your BOB trailer as well.

I don't know whether the BOB trailer's dimensions have changed, or if this plan has been improved. With the official BOB ToolRAX costing $115, I can sympathize with wanting to DIY.
If you decide to go retail, I had good experience with this seller:

The tool rack BOB sells is expensive. I just put a plastic milk crate in the BOB and bungee everything. I added a piece of 1/2" plywood to the top of the rear edge of the crate and cut U U U U U U U shapes to catch the handles from moving sideways around turns and such. The tool heads fit in the crate and the handles hang out the back at a nice upward angle to keep them from getting hung up on stuff.
