Has anyone had any experience with any of the commercial hammock stands?
I've been looking at several of them in the $100-150 range including Vario and other similar styles. I need to know how easy they are to break down and store or if they're bolted together or pinned.
I've seen the ones that have the extensions with a chain or cable connecting them to hang a canopy. How easy is it to DIY some kind of extension that will fit into to end tubes and string a cord across and hang my own tarp?
I've made the Risk style stand but it's just not attractive enough or compact enough to take along when I have to do the travel trailer thing with my wife.
I believe Jeff said he had the Vario, I'd like to hear some thoughts...
