Will the aluminum Army Surplus Stand hold a 300 to 400lb guy? Does anybody know the weight limitations? I have a friend that might like one of these aluminum Army Surplus Stand.
All I can say is WOW! I left work and the dude at the Army Surplus called me and my 8 fiberglass and 8 aluminum 4' sections were at his abode to be picked up and so I beat it there and picked them up,,and set the TD stand up in the living room with 4 aluminum 4' sections put together for the ridgepole, and hung my RR bridge hammock up and got in it, then the wife got in it,,and absolutely no flexing or movement up or down on the ridgepole at all with me or her in it..then I hung her gathered end hammock up and she jumped right into it,,and wouldn't get out! And there was absolutely no flexing up or down on the ridgepole again. Fiberglass poles will work with a lightweight like me at 165 lbs with no flexing, but anybody over 200lbs has to use aluminum as the fiberglass is perfect for the tripods but not on a ridgepole. they are lighter than the aluminum in weight also. The simplicity of this setup for carcamping or backyard is very neat. I am really liking this setup and 2 sets fits in my trunk of my Toyota Corolla with plenty of room for other items which is another plus as well as the rack on my Jeep Wrangler. Here is a few pics of the wife enjoying her hammock using the stand.
