Northern Tool is a good start, LDH I believe just picked up a set for his new trailer and he seems to really like them. I have to old style GreenTouch racks, I dont know if they still make them though.

Tractor Supply has a set for 62$, I just bought the rack and installed it on my trailer last week. The rack is solid enough but the holder part of the rack is much too large and the trimmer will move around alot. With the right lock it is lockable though. I did get a piece of pipe instulation and rigged around the holder, so the trimmer doesnot move now. The price is right, but if I would of researched, I would of bought another one.

I bought a set by Preco and used pipe insulation to stop my trimmers/edger from rolling....cost me $85 total
