If the Cherokee dealer in GA can't help you, Ken Feagin Truck & Trailer in Fletcher, NC can. They modify the existing one and it's reasonable. It works, trust me, they did it for me. Contact Randy Burmaster at email@example.com

Are you SURE you want a swing-out? I do not like mine and will not have another. It's about the only thing I don't like on my Star Lite trailer but cussed the darn thing every time I had to use it. Finally took it out altogether and now keep my saddle in the back seat of my pickup and put several of the light drawer units in the tack compartment. Much better.
What didn't I like? Having to swing it out every time to put the saddle on or take it off. When you swing it out to take the saddle off, the saddle drags against the bridles/halters hanging on the hooks. The hook to latch it out is high and unhandy and with the wind always blowing here, you have to latch the darn thing every time. Also when you swing it out with a saddle on it the stirrups and cinch sweep anything on the floor out onto the ground. GRRRR!
Really want a straight saddle rack that I can just slide a saddle on and off.
