kickstand suggestions?

I want to add a kickstand to my bike, which is used both for commuting and for child-toting (with a trailer). This presents a problem-- I can't use the kickstands that mount towards the rear hub since they'd prevent me from using the trailer. I also can't seem to use the standard ones that mount near the downtube because I have a full set of fenders, and there's no room between the downtube and the fender for the top mounting plate. Is anyone aware of other kickstand models that might work with my current set-up?

Take a look at at the Hostel Shoppe. Mostly intended for 'bents & tandems, but you might find something that works for you.

What type of bike is it? Most bikes that I have seen that can be used for utility normally have room for a kickstand behind the seat tube. Pictures would help too. FWIW I love my double legged kickstands and have another one on order.

Webshots is bailing out, if you find any of my posts with corrupt picture files and want to see them corrected please let me know. :(
