MFJ  manufactures  exactly  what you described at  an attractive price of

The  MFJ-1792  is full size on 40M with an isolating / 80M loading coil
at the top
and a capacity  hat  to complete the 80M loading.  A couple of users have
good results here on the Towertalk reflector.  Of course an effective
radial system
is needed.  (I have no affiliation with or interest in MFJ).
