I ended up making a simple wooden rail which fit into the brackets that were designed for the ladder. You can't use the ladder while the rail is in place but the kids just use the arm rest of the couch as a step.

Every once in a while a "fix" like this one comes along. Simple, inexpensive and functional. After seeing your solution, what if you purchase and install two additional stake pockets, and hang the ladder that way.
I would make one suggestion; the gap between the mattress and the bottom of the cross piece should not be greater than 4 inches, allowing for mattress compression in that measurement. That is what safety guidlines are to prevent injury.

Great idea, thanks.

I use a thick expandable curtain rod. Twist it and it tightens. Think I got it at Penneys. It stores at head of cab when not in use.
