    You certainly can, but if using a tarp, it is a vapor barrier(VB), so you need to make sure you understand VB theory, or you will end up with a wet UQ from condensation. Although, if it hangs pretty...

    Zipper hard to work? Could the hammock be pitched to tight? Just making a guess. I have a zipper on my JRB UL model, and I don't recall any problems with it.
