[TowerTalk] Running coax outside to tower on cable tray

My tower is about 30 feet from the shack in the garage. I am presently running multiple coax and a rotator cable thru a 4 inch buried pipe to the tower. I want to run some more cable (a CAT5 for now) and in the future have easier access for future expansion, repair, etc. Has anyone used outside a cable tray (possibly elevated) to run their coax, etc. to the tower? I have a fence near the tower so I can run the coax to the fence and then attach an elevated tray of sorts, so the elevated portion should not be in the way as it goes to the garage (shack). I have seen cable trays inside of buildings, but do not need something as wide as these, just enough width to hold 4 to 5 coaxes and a few other cables.
