I can honestly Say that OldGringo has a very nice Van hanging setup... He was the envy at the Mt Magazine hang while the storm was passing through the 1st night... high winds with trees falling...
Okay really guys, I have never wished my wife was a soccer mom so bad before. I feel like a kid, Mommy I want a van too like the guys.
Yosemite Sam: Are you trying to make me look a fool?
Bugs: You don't need me to make you look like a fool.
Yosemite Sam: Yer deerrrnnn right I don't!
Not sure about in a van but I did have
A K5 blazer with a lift I could of hung a
hammock underneath it from bumper to bumper
Maybe the axles would have been in the way
But your bum would not touch the ground for that in sure
This is your one stop shop for all Hammock knowledge
Now that is the perfect help in visualizing how it would fit. Great video jason!! Thanks.
Since the van is a beater I won't even worry about scratching the van so no need for the tiedown even. That is a tight fit though.
It may not be rocket science, but it's still science.
used to hang 2 8ft hammocks in my VW van from the front window to the back hatch back...it worked better than a tent.
Hang it high and God Bless!!
