Hammocks are the shiiiiiiiit. I swing in mine at night while I smoke and drink, and check out the sky, it makes life much more enjoyable.

If you can carve out a spot, you can get a set-up like that for 69 bucks on Amazon and those frames can hold a 6'3" 250+ frame + a couple of dogs with ease.

u/Runed0S · 52 pointsr/Showerthoughts

Try a hammock

Edit: something like this: Https://

Also, always get double-wide hammocks unless you're 5'5" or less. I made that mistake, I'm 6'.

Try to get a cotton hammock for the inside of your house, and hook it so the edges almost droop. There are different ways of hammocking, but laying at around a 30° angle is flat for me.

If you can touch the ground with your butt (in your hammock), put the hook 2 links/holes up until you don't, then adjust for droop.

EDIT 2: I forgot to mention the whole bar thing. You know those wooden/metal bars at either end of the hammock? Yeah don't get those, they make it easy to fall off. You have to actually put effort into rolling out of a regular double-wide, it's your fault if you do.

Speaking of rolling out... You won't roll over in a hammock. Rolling over in your sleep is because you aren't comfortable enough or there's too much pressure on your back somewhere. Hammocks literally are the first memory foam mattresses. I like my hammock better than the store's billion dollar mattresses. You can use a sleep apnea machine in a hammock, too!

u/Hausnelis · 22 pointsr/whatisthisthing

It might be good for camping or tailgaiting. I'm sure it ridiculously expensive. Yup, it is

u/jkoppp · 13 pointsr/Trucks
u/0neir0naut · 10 pointsr/Hammocks

I bought this hammock from amazon and used it as my bed for a few months. At first, it was pretty cool having a hammock as a bed. After a few days I realized the stand wasn't suitable for sleeping in every night; I couldn't find a comfortable enough position to be able to have restful sleep.

I eventually bought a new hammock to see if it was the original hammock that was the issue. Well, this new hammock was even more uncomfortable when I mounted it on the stand I had. In fact, the stand that came with the first hammock wasn't compatible with the new hammock; I had to buy some tree straps so that the new hammock would sit right on the new stand.

It was really hard sleeping on my hammock setup; I was sad as I really wanted it to work for me. I'm sure if I created my own stand that actually worked for my height I would have had no problem sleeping. Eventually I bought a Tri Fold Mattress and a memory foam pad and just slept on that instead of the hammock; the Tri Fold + Memory foam combo is perfect! Best sleep of my life on that thing.

If you're going to buy a hammock to use as a bed, I would highly recommend making, or even buying, a hand-made stand that fits your height and weight.

I'm 6'0", ~154lbs

Also, If you're going to buy a hammock to sleep on I would highly recommend having a secondary sleeping station (possibly a pad of some sort) for those days where you just don't want to sleep on the hammock. Trust me, those days will come. I didn't think it would happen to me, but it did. If you have any other questions I'll gladly answer them! Unfortunately I can't give you information about wall hooks/mounting as I never went that route.

u/Phant0mX · 9 pointsr/Hammocks

I use this one for festival camping and anywhere else without trees with my double nest. 450 lb weight limit, 9 feet long, steel construction. Disassembles and comes with a bag for travel, definitely not lightweight.

u/Tryin2cumDenver · 9 pointsr/specializedtools

I was sure I was the first person to create a hitch hammock. The frame of the hammock/chair would hook onto the ball hitch of a truck while the seat was suspended over the ground. I even drew up a schematic and counted all my chickens before they hatched.

My heart sunk when I seen one at a tailgate party.

u/tia031394 · 7 pointsr/femalelivingspace

Haha we bought a hammock hanging kit on Amazon that can hold like 1000 lbs! You just have to make sure the eye bolt is screwed into a stud.

u/cfc1016 · 7 pointsr/Hammocks

THIS ONE - $44

There's another unit that has the same overlap hanging system (which I VASTLY prefer to the standard "this is your one and only harness point" style) and is 10' instead of 9'. THIS is it - $60.

In researching a compact indoor unit, those were the two at the top of my list. The pole ends and adjustable harness point are really the winning feature.

Read the comments in THIS POST for all the details you could possibly want.

u/rm-minus-r · 7 pointsr/Hammocks

Can you? Totally! Will they stretch? Possibly.

I have this one - - it came with a chain on each end to attach to the hooks, works like a charm.

Chain doesn't stretch either, so if it's a semi-permanent setup, it doesn't hurt to get two short lengths of chain from your local Home Depot or Lowes or the like.

u/ypsigypsi · 6 pointsr/bonnaroo

the one I have

Works great and easy set up and take down! Slept like a fuckin baby at Roo last year

u/ToasterP · 6 pointsr/ElectricForest

This is the one we bought.

It perfectly fits a regular eno double nest, but not a double nest deluxe as well just for reference.

u/whitefang573431 · 6 pointsr/Hammocks

The plans were from a website that sells pvc pipe >.< I just feel cheated at this point.

Defeated, I caved and bought the $44 stand recommended to me earlier by u/cfc1016.

u/webrebates · 5 pointsr/Hammocks

Buy this bad boy, or hit up craigslist for a free one.

u/0311 · 5 pointsr/bonnaroo

I have this one with my Eno. Used it at Okeechobee and it was perfect.

u/m4rsandv3nus · 5 pointsr/ElectricForest

I purchased one of those net hammocks to have at home, and it came with a steel stand. The stand itself collapses down for storage, and I think it might be coming with to forest this year.

Something similar to this:

u/Roomslinger · 5 pointsr/hammockcamping

I made a stand like that with 2x6's, and just bolted them together (it was just to see how it worked). I imagine pipe would work as long as it's pretty heavy duty.

The big issue I found with the design (two legs and rope on each end) was that the ropes that anchor into the ground on each take on a lot of tension. I ended up having to use long spiral stakes (used for dog chains) to keep them down. Regular stakes pulled out of the ground easily. When this happens the legs swing down towards the center. Where you are laying. Quickly. Generally in the direction of your head or knees.

The Turtledog design requires the long pole overhead, which I am not a huge fan of, but eliminates the potential for head trauma or knee surgery.

For $100 bucks you can pick something like this up

Folds up and comes with a case. You don't need to anchor anything and it gives you a clear view of the stars at night. They are a bit heavy, but very portable/packable.

u/beansarenotfruit · 5 pointsr/Hammocks

So I’ve been sleeping in my hammock for a few weeks now, and have really liked it. The hammock I bought is here:

Hammock Sky Brazilian Double...

And the stand is here:

Sunnydaze 550-Pound Capacity...

The stand is quite large, but kind of needs to be. I didn’t need to buy anything else, everything I needed to hand was included in the two kits. The frame is a little heavy, but moveable by one person. You can put it together alone, but two people makes assembly much easier.

u/amateurishatbest · 4 pointsr/Hammocks

When in doubt, don't. I can recommend a stand that's only ~$50.

u/eliporter877 · 4 pointsr/bonnaroo

FYI I just bought this hammock stand and it came in the mail a couple days ago. I haven't used it yet but it looks exactly like the one you are planning on buying but half the price.

u/whatthebyrd · 4 pointsr/hammockcamping

I use this at home. It's fairly lightweight for being a bunch of metal tubes and fits into a travel bag about 3 feet long. Not made specifically for camping, but it's cheaper and doesn't require you to run over it...

u/Piklikl · 3 pointsr/Hammocks

I got this for Christmas and I've been using it for the past week staying at a friends house. I'm using an ENO double nest, and so far it's just a touch more cramped than the hooks I use embedded in my bedroom wall.

Best ChoiceProducts Space Saving Steel Hammock Stand 9' Outdoor Patio Portable with Carrying Case

u/billythekid1470 · 3 pointsr/Hammocks

Currently I'm using right this now I got it around $49. It folds up pretty quick too.

It comes with a really nice bag to store it in as well. I use it with my 11ft and 9ft hammocks both indoor and out.

Took only Five days to get it but was in the warehouse for 3 days just waiting.

u/the-bong-lord · 3 pointsr/vaporents

If you can’t tie it to the balcony railing, try one of these

But make sure it’s not too long, I underestimated 9ft when I got this for a camping tent lol

u/cantwealljusgetalong · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Not sure on your financial situation but I purchased this hammock stand and received it in the mail yesterday. I set it up at home and laid in my hammock and it worked well. Easy set up and seems sturdy, however I'm a pretty thing guy. Should do the trick. See ya on the farm!

u/Vaping_Casual · 3 pointsr/vaporents

Yup! :)

u/SpartansATTACK · 3 pointsr/ElectricForest

I bought this one. Easy to set up, it's designed for bar hammocks, but it fits an ENO DoubleNest perfectly fine. Comes with a cupholder too which is always nice.

u/Sparky2697 · 3 pointsr/Hammocks

Best ChoiceProducts Space Saving Steel Hammock Stand 9' Outdoor Patio Portable with Carrying Case

u/idiggplants · 3 pointsr/Hammocks

google/youtube setting up hammocks with trekking poles... or hammocking above the treeline... its a pretty common challenge and their are a few different solutions... id warn against trying to tie off to the rv anywhere. not much on them that can withstand the horizontal force that your hammock will put on it.

edit: another option that might work for you is a hammock stand. it will definitely be the easiest, but youll have to spend a few bucks. the bonus is you can use it at home in the back yard.. but youll probably have plenty of room in the rv.

u/RaeChill · 3 pointsr/FireflyFestival

Mine were from eBay for about $60. Here's an amazon link with virtually the same thing!

u/madmatttt · 3 pointsr/minimalism

Thanks for the info guys, I got some private messages and that combined with your comments helped me pick out this to go with my Eagle's Nest Outfitter's Doublenest Hammock. I'll be putting... well, something! underneath the metal support bars to protect my hardwood floors.

Thanks everybody!

u/ismellsogood · 3 pointsr/bonnaroo

Do you care to link me to the ones you have? I've been looking at a lot of them on Amazon but there's so many options and it's hard to tell about the quality.

For anyone interested, this is the hammock stand I ordered. It has almost perfect reviews, assembles and disassembles in less than 3 minutes, is perfectly made for ENO hammocks, and is the exact right size to fit under a 10x10 EZ-Up. It's also way cheaper than the other options.

u/fireguy0306 · 3 pointsr/DIY

While I really like the wood look of yours. What made you go with the wood vs something like this? I'd assume more longevity out of the metal for cheaper?

u/brewyet · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

I have this one with an eno doublenest, but its a bit flexy (i'm 270) and just isn't long enough once I get in it:

I ended up going with this for about $120 in parts. but be forewarned you'll need atleast 12 foot room.

u/deck_hand · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

Plenty of portable stand options. I've made turtle-dog stands using bamboo, made Madera style hammock stands using cheap pine 2X2s (just make sure you get the ground anchor done well, test this in advance). I've used my Jeep as one side of the hammock, and a stand on the other.

There's even the "one tree" stand that is nothing more than a 6' pole. I've done this countless times, and manage to amaze people all the time. The idea here is that you can secure one side of your hammock to a truck or tree or something that doesn't move, and anchor the other side down low, either to a bumper, or tree-stump, or park bench. Anything sturdy. Then, simply put a pole up on the low side to lift the end. The pole does not have to be anchored out, it can fee free to wobble and wiggle around.

The top of the pole, when your weight is on it, will tend to sway a foot or so back and forth with normal motion, and everyone will think it's about to fall over, but your weight will tend to keep it upright. Pushing it too far will often result in the base kicking out, but normal swinging and swaying won't do this, only aggressive movements. Try it!

u/Orgizm · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Here's what I've brought to multiple festivals. Couldn't recommend more. You can adjust the hooks to make it more or less taut which can help keep your back from getting sore if you're not trying to sleep in a U shape.

u/discoafroman · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

Somebody recommended this stand alone hammock. These will comfortably fit under an EZ Up. I've seen two of these under one, they work well!

u/geezer_ · 2 pointsr/minimalism

Hammock and Hammock Stand

Bed Frame and Mattress

Table and I stole a folding chair from my Uni to go along with the table.

u/Oreganoian · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

It's 9 feet but with the hooks all the way down my camping hammocks don't have any issues. They're 10.5 to 12 feet long.

I sleep in the cloth hammock it comes with. It will stretch a good amount the first few hangs.

u/publicfrog · 2 pointsr/ChronicPain

I bought a hammock so I could have a place besides my bed where I could lounge in pain. They actually support my back much better than I expected, I've accidentally fallen asleep in it because of how comfortable it is. The hammocks without spreader bars aren't the unbalanced tippy things that most people are used to.

What are your health problems? The only thing you mention needing to worry about is your bed. Food/snacking is an issue I always have, it's hard to keep and prepare the diet I require with my issues.

This is the hammock I bought because it comes with a stand.

u/sanseriph74 · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

Amazon has one for $46 that can collapse into a small portable tote, but Ive never used it, so I can't be sure it isn't crap.

I've seen a number of people hang using two crossed poles and a tie down, always looks like its about to fall, but it seems to work. This is a commercial version of that if you can get a stake in the ground where you are fishing.

u/cassaundraloren · 2 pointsr/bonnaroo

This Boy!! I have used it for all of my Roo's with my double eno! Super cheap ($56) and works great. Fits under easy-up

u/markiacino · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival
u/fogdogS1 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest

VERY minimal trees in GA, but if you’ve got your heart set on hammocking at your camp, check this out! I’m in maplewoods so I don’t need it for forest but I’m considering getting it anyway for my yard.

u/i1i1i1i1i1i11i1i1i1 · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

I just got this stand in today, and it's incredible. I don't have any trees either but this works great for indoor/outdoor use

I would definitely recommend it.

u/tward1220 · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

I have been using this one for the last 2 years. It is a little on the short side but it works fine with the hammock I sleep in every night.

u/98785258 · 2 pointsr/ElectricForest
u/theycallmeVamp · 2 pointsr/hammockcamping

I use this stand. A little tricky to get your angle right with but once it's dialed in it works great. For bottom insulation I just have a giant quilt that I wrap underneath me when I crawl into bed.

u/zynthalay · 2 pointsr/Hammocks

I sleep on this stand and have for three months, it works great. My off-brand hammock stretched a bit, I moved the hooks to the next set of holes, no problem.

u/JBSclater · 2 pointsr/FireflyFestival

I've done this for the last two years. I bought this stand and it works great with my Eno.

u/moxiousmissy · 2 pointsr/Random_Acts_Of_Amazon

This will enable to me to commit the sin of Sloth during the spring - fall months in my backyard. I have a hammock, just nowhere to hang it (my trees are too far apart).

Thanks for the fun contest!

Sunnydaze Universal Multi-Use Heavy-Duty Steel Hammock Stand, 2 Person, Fits Hammocks 9 to 14 Feet Long, 440 Pound Capacity

u/Dreamliss · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I'll probably go with the Eno doublenest, I've heard good things around.

As one of the least handy people around, I'm not really considering DIY stands, but I'm confused about what features I need to look for in one I'm buying. I saw some with what looked like just a plain pole for the end, and others with a U / horseshoe shape at the end. And if a hammock says it's '9 feet'and a stand says it has a 'footprint of 10 feet' are they compatible? (Does that mean it's actually 10 feet or does it extend more in the air?)

Space isn't a huge issue, although it would be nice if it was smaller. Hopefully not more than a hundred...

Anyway, thanks for your help so far!

Edit: I was looking at this stand, would it work with the Eno double nest, and what additional things would I need to actually hang the hammock? (Just the suspension kit you suggested?)

Vivere UHS9 Universal Space-Saving Steel Hammock Stand, 9-Feet, Charcoal

u/dagmar31 · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I'm going to pick a couple of these up soon

They come with a carrying case but I can't seem to find how much they weigh. They have a space saving design that moves your attachment point down the outside of the stand, you can look for their kit with included hammock for a picture of the setup

u/behemebash · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I would just look into purchasing a hammock stand if you don't want to drill into your walls. I have this one, myself:

If you just search "Hammock Stand" on Amazon, you should be able to find one the right size to fit yours.

u/iamphloyd · 1 pointr/Hammocks

That one might be a bit small, depending on the hammock you are using. I would suggest this one as an alternative if you think the 9' one won't work.

u/CedarWolf · 1 pointr/pics
u/Jharrigan07 · 1 pointr/houston

The tree comes with a huge root ball/dirt but I don't know if I would trust it with a hammock for a long time. I think you'd be better off with a steel hammock stand under the tree. I had one like this years ago:

Better than risking $1000 in crooked trees.

u/deotheophilus · 1 pointr/hammockcamping

I used this for 6 months as my bed, I've built stands before and they work well enough but this one is nice and sturdy (Zupapa 550LBS Capacity Universal Multi-Use Steel Hammock Stand, 2 Person, Fits Hammocks 9 to 14 Feet Long, Adjustable Heavy Duty Hammock Frame , there is a stand that Walmart sells that is $50 and folds out, it works pretty well but if you're over 200 lb it may not last, mine lasted around 2 months of daily use and then just bent in half when I got in it one day. The Amazon one is great, heavy duty enough for two people and packs down into a small bag.

u/shaggyhair · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

We have this at our house. We brought it a couple years ago. Breaks down pretty well and fit into the trunk of a Mazda3 easily. My advice would be to not buy a "compact" hammock stand just because it seems easier. We originally bought one that folds up into one piece. Sort of like one of those shitty camping chairs but a hammock. That thing was terrible and the fabric didn't breathe at all. Top 5 worst Bonnaroo purchases.

u/thezoou · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Everyone in my group invested in one of these this year. They work perfectly for camping hammocks up to 10' long.

u/solniiishko · 1 pointr/JUSTNOMIL

Thank you! Here's a link to one that is similar. It's the most comfortable thing to relax in when I'm watching youtube and having a cup of coffee in the morning.

u/Imanogre · 1 pointr/camping

How about a frame that easily comes apart?

You can use it at tailgates, camping, or the living room.

u/TheFilman · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I got you fam.

Byer of Maine Model A4030 Madera Hammock Stand

u/MortalWombat42 · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I've got the one by "Best Choice" that is a few bucks cheaper but looks to be identical (they even offer the same hammock I got with mine), aside from not having square feet on the bottom of the legs.

I've only used it outdoors a couple of times, but I sleep in it indoors most nights for almost 2 years now and it's never let me down. For outdoors though, I think /u/RecreationalAsshole is on the money with the turtledog stand.

u/UrsaPrime · 1 pointr/books

You definitely should. I highly recommend this one along with the space saving stand. It literally takes about one minute to assemble it and it comes with a carrying case, so I just take it with me and set it up anywhere. After I posted my response to this thread I wondered why I'd never combined hammock and lakeside reading, so right now I'm laying in my hammock on a beach on the shore of Lake Michigan reading Moby Dick, and it's the best feeling ever. Next I'll have to try hammock on a boat.

But I'm currently lugging around a 40 pound generic Amazon frame

And I carry a small tent if I need to get out of the rain with that hammock frame. It's not ideal, but it's what I can afford.

u/itsmyboyfriendsfault · 1 pointr/mysteryland

Just buy a hammock stand, my friend brought one with him to ML and TW the past few years and it's awesome. Here's a link!

u/crick2000 · 1 pointr/Hammocks

Check the Dimensions of Best Choice Stand on Amazon. It is listed as perfect fit for ENO Double nest:

u/dancing-lobsters · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I bought a Best Choice Products 10' Hammock Stand (link is here). It fits my Eno Single hammock (except I really just stick the carabiners on the top of the U-hook instead of getting my hammock straps out and configured. I don't lay low to the ground - Can bring it outside and configure a rain tarp over it if I want to.

u/EvergreenBipolar · 1 pointr/trees

There's a really nice one on Amazon with metal stand. We have two of these in our living room. Only about $60 and a shit load easier than trying to mount into wall studs.

u/AsifDelawalla · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

First year going to any music festival and incredibly excited to be going to roo. My buddy and I got an EZ Up canopy/tent from dicks for like $50 and I bought a [hammock stand](Best ChoiceProducts Space Saving Steel Hammock Stand 9' Outdoor Patio Portable with Carrying Case to use with my ENO for $55. I got an extra one for my buddy from my boss at work.

We're planning on putting up bedsheets/tapestries all around to avoid sweating at sunrise and getting sunburnt af.

EDIT: Also, from the research I've done, if you have a hammock, it should allow air to run above you and underneath you. Most people say it actually gets kinda chilly for them at night in a hammock.

u/sharkerty · 1 pointr/DIY

Not to be a dick but...

There's more money here

u/kellymchale22 · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

This is the same one in a different color, but only 89$ with free prime shipping. Going to buy myself one soon!

u/Posaquatl · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I made a turtle dog stand years ago. Never really used it much. I had wooden chair rail as the bar. Was a bit flexible when I laid in the ENO. I would have to replace the pipe if I was to use it for everyday use. Worried I would impale myself in the middle of the night.

The pipe stand does not look too bad. Would have to price it out...may come close to a commercial stand though. Something like this is only 100 bucks. No bar under your back if you fall out in the middle of the night lol.
I see quite a few "cheap" ones like the Best Choice one, 50-70 bucks. You want something starting at 11 foot?? should cover the paradiso?

u/alwayswithyou · 1 pointr/CampingandHiking

I recently bought an Eno 2 with stand.

Definitely bring a stand cause tree spots get filled fast.

u/treerabbit · 1 pointr/ElectricForest

I have this one and it's pretty nice-- sturdy but "portable" (not like quick pop-up or lightweight, but it means you can put it in your car to/from EF a lot more easily than some of the other ones)

also the cupholder is pretty clutch

u/J3diJ0nes · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I've been sleeping in my mine full time for almost 2 years now. I love it. Here is the stand I use, I rent too, but even going a little further at this moment I'm staying with friends. My place got flooded and destroyed, luckily I didn't have a soaking wet mattress to toss out post exodus haha

That i'm not sure, I've never camped up towards the trees.. But I assume ( and am 99.5% sure ) that its just field camping and there is a gap between the field and the tree line.


Your best bet is going to be either a) getting a hammock stand ( ) OR setup a hammock in Metta, and just hang out there when you have downtime


There are also hammocks hiding behind the Grove.

u/wherearemydrugs · 1 pointr/aww

u/preprandial_joint · 1 pointr/hammockcamping

I think it's hanging on a this.

u/merithynos · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Being up off the ground helps a lot with the heat, as does not being in an enclosed space. This hammock stand:

was fantastic, setup/takedown in five minutes, and I was able to fit it (via the pass-thru) in my two seat convertible.

I might go with a lighter (less warm) hammock next time.

u/billclark · 1 pointr/Hammocks

Just buy that. To bolt it to a wall, you'd spend nearly as much on proper hardware. The stand is still less than the cost to repair your walls in a month.

u/dwaynetheguacjohnson · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

We bought this one recently, and even found a way to make it work for bunk bed hammocks, WITH a bug net. Highly reccomend!

u/Korberos · 1 pointr/BurningMan

This will be my first time out on the playa and I'm looking for anyone in this thread to tell me if this is a terrible idea before I commit to it:

Instead of a tent, I'll be using a hammock on a fold-out hammock stand and I'll be draping fabric from my car to some stakes in the ground around me to avoid the sun and hopefully the majority of the dust. It'll all be facing west so that in the morning the sun will be on the other side of my car, which will have a windshield reflector on it so as to not allow the sun to shine through the windshield, out the back, and directly into my sleeping area.

u/wayfarer650 · 1 pointr/Hammocks

I have this stand from Amazon and it's been great for $45. It's made up of 5 tube pieces that break down for storage - mine stays under the bed much of the time. I think it's 9 feet tip-to-tip, so you can still get a pretty good hanging angle.

u/TubaPresident · 1 pointr/drumcorps
u/Pterodictyl · 1 pointr/bonnaroo

Sadly can't use an Eno style hammock with this stand. That's a nice affordable option, but if you can manage the extra funds this style will be nicer, more sturdy, and more versatile. My oldest one is making it to its 4th Bonnaroo this year, and I recently bought two more to keep in camp for friends to nap in.
