I think your best move would be to fabricate one from an old c band dish(assuming that you can find one). I have never seen one for sale.

I will take photo of one I made years ago in australia for a 6' dish, in the 80's when installing sat dishes in the USA I found out that if the design is is not plump and the pivoit point is not in the center of the dish you can not track the comptete H to H.
I'll do this later today sorry I wasn't around to help. It is rusty and 10 years old and being rebuilt for Ku in Aussie

Sadoune satellites used to sell an hh motor mount large enough to handle a 6 ft prime focus. Sadouns owner Jamal is a good fellow if you can find him on the net sure he can help.

Have a look at this mover dish that is for sale in my area.

$200 is over price as these dishes are hard to put back together.

Dishes; 5x3m, 2.4m, 2.1m, 1.8m and 4.1m, 10+ ku, 2 movers, USARLS. Skybox F5, F5s, V6, V8. Openbox V8 Combo, Pro, Freesat V8 Golden, Nova, GTC, Super and Angle (Sample). Freesat V7HDs, Combo and V7s. Sats 100.5E to 177W. I'm a Sat hobbyist who helps out.

A completely plumb and level pole mounted in concrete ( about 4 feet down ) is what you can install if you can come into a used dish free or cheap. Ride out in the country where there is no cable. There are dishes scattered all over. Be nice and go up to the door to offer to remove it for free or purchase cheaply if need be. Cut it down flush with the ground and bring it home. I use a grinder with cut off disc. Works like a champ. Then install in a sleeve in concreted bed nice and straight. A new LNBF may be in order as the modern ones seem to be more sensitive. The chapparal that most have will work also. In short... Go get a used dish and install it.
