Opinions solicited - minivan hammock for kids
I am wanting to string up a couple of hammocks in my minivan. I want to go road tripping and will have 2 large dogs possibly and 3 kids. I thought if I could suspend the kids from the hammocks using the front and rear seats as anchors I'd be able to fit us in nicely. I'll take out the middle bench.
The kids weigh about 70 & 120 lbs respectively.
Would one style of hammock be preferable to another?
Do you think the seats/headrests would take the weight? I could probably run a line to the steering wheel and the back trunk handle. :confused:
Alternate hanging points?
I want us as self contained as possible. I'm not planning to do a tent or anything as it will just make me nuts. :scared: I know myself. I want to have a succesful road trip and keeping things contained/simple are key - esp with dogs and a toddler to boot!
I've read through a couple different tutorials for making a hammock and I think it's doable, but if you have pics or links you think might be up my alley, I'd love it.
I appreciate the help. Thanks much!
