I hang a $12.99 tablecloth hammock from that and have been sleeping in it for the last week. While I have no adjustability (I'm using continuous loops rather than whoopie), I haven't needed any since the lay is perfect.
So my answer is yes, you could probably hang in a 10 ft. space, since I'm doing it. I just wouldn't do it with a hammock like the one you're considering. At 6'1", you're not going to enjoy the 8 ft. bed length. Though the hammock is listed as 132 inches long, 34 inches of that is the rope/string suspension.
You'd probably be just as happy with a tablecloth hammock - I've been sleeping like a rock in mine.
+1 on this. I'm totally in awe with my tablecloth hammock
. Can't beat the price for crinkly taffeta and you won't be out a lot if it doesn't work for you.
