Hello Hammock Forums! I often find my self at work envisioning myself living in a tiny house and being able to move on a whim. Right now I am working on insulating a cargo van that I will be able to dwell around minnesota with on the weekends...it is almost complete!! woo. BUT I have realized that a van is not what I actually want.
I want something without an engine. Ice fishing is pretty popular around here, and people have come up with some really cool ideas for tiny houses. Heres a couple links to some that I like.
I see these parked around and have looked at them at a icefishing shows before as well, they are basically fully furnished trailer houses, that are relatively portable.
Another Style that I have seen that I like is http://www.zachmeiermfg.com/ These trailers are very light, but I have not seen one with full amenities.
I would Like to create something that is a combination of the two. Something more like the second like, but with a bathroom in the front.
I spent a lot of time thinking of different designs for sleeping arrangements, and have often thought of using a futon or a hammock or both.
My IDEAL trailer size would be 6x10 and a height of 6.5...but I have been searching Craigslist and Im thinking Ill just buy something that is a good deal.
SO anyways I need help with the whole hammock thing. I can read about them online, but its hard for me to envision this without seeing something in person. As far as I know there isn't really a hammock store in Minnesota. I have checked around in amazon, seaside hammocks and a few of the links on this site as well, but I'm still not sure what I'm looking for. So if someone could point me into the right direction that would be great!
What I want in a hammock:
I want a brazilian or mayan style something with netting.
It needs to be able to fit in shorter places, I envisioned something that could fit corner to corner, and I could unclip it from one side and kind fold it up out of the way.
TWO PEOPLE naps a least. I refuse comprise for a hammock that is so small only one person could fit into it. I don't like to sleep alone every night.
It would be great if it was colorful but whatever.
Seaside hammock seems to have a couple I would like to check out but im pretty nervous about ordering. They have a short mayan and they also have a "boat" hammock that is shorter. Prices seem to good to be true. Heres a link: http://www.seasidehammocks.com/
Well I think that sums it up, If anyone has any advice on what hammock to get or what a minimal size for the trailer should be let me know! And after I post this I wont be able to check until sometime after 10 at the earliest so sorry that I can't get back to ya'll right away! have a great FRIDAY!
