Does anyone know of a dual (or single) jerry can carrier that mounts to the Gobi ladder but is able to swing out so I can still have access to use the ladder?

If I were designing a roof rack (and wouldnít get sued by Gobi if I decided to sell it), I would make it identical to Gobi, but build with aluminum and incorporate slots in the crossmembers for eyebolt tiedowns. I suppose the flooring would have to be thicker in order to be traversible.
The mesh floor was probably the largest factor in choosing the Gobi - incredible utility and the kids LOVE getting up there when unloaded. Just throw a Mexican blanket up there and snacks via underhand toss and life is easy.

Would love this option as well.

Yup. My kids love hanging out on the roof when we camp. It's also great for taking photos when you're at a busy place like a national park. You can get above the traffic.

I have the ARB awning brackets and the ratchet strap bracket. Iím very pleased with both. I just use bungees for the traction boards.

Has anyone mounted a propane mount on the ladder or on the Gobi rack itself? I am looking for a simple solution to carry my 5 lb tank.
Thanks!

I used a power tank Mount from my old Jeep that I opened up a bit to hold my ignik propane tank. I used axia alloys bar clamps to attach and believe I had to drill a hole in the tank bracket. I secure the tank with voile straps. Works perfectly

Shovel / hi-lift mounts? Of course, but for less than the classic $175?

Best full-coverage awnings for a full rack?

Ladder mounts - flag carriers? Radio antennas?

I know there are a lot of folks who - through trial and error - have some solid wisdom to share.
You may want to check out our Carrier Deck that just came out in 2022. Holds traction boards, RotoPax, Hi Lift (with their brackets) and you can use the Quick Grip on the sides for axes and shovels. There are more pictures and details on the website. We are working on mounting brackets for tubular racks, OEM cross bars and extruded aluminum cross bar racks at this time.

For Awning mounts I use GZilla Designs. These things are stout and look great on the Gobi. Highly recommend these. They make mounts for a variety of items.

Iím looking at those same awning mounts. Which size do I need for the Gobi rack?
