    Question What is a good Compact and affordable hammock stand?

    Hello all, with the temperatures rising every year I am looking to get a hammock stand for in the garden. I am unable to screw some eye hooks in the walls, so it must be a stand. A few requirements:
    - It must be able to stand on its own, not falling due to wind or the occasional push from our dogs
    - Made for outdoors, potentially indoor use as well. Probably won't get wet.
    - It should be made to be disassembled frequently
    - I do not want to spend more than 150 euro (or USD, GBP).
    - It should be compact when dismantled, so no 1.5 meter (8 ft) long beams
    - I want to be able to hang various hammocks on it, both travel hammocks and the heavier brazillian ones.
    - Max weight is not really an issue, as I am below 80kg

    So far I was looking at a Vivere one, but I think this one or a similar design is better suited for my needs. These 2 are too expensive with shipping though.

    Thanks for the reply, it was quite an interesting and inspiring read. I forgot to add to my requirements that I do not wish to build something myself due to to various concerns including safety.

    A wooden structure as made in the tread is relatively simple and I could build it, however I have no desire to build something myself (yet, might change when I have my own house, which is rather difficult with the current market). and it is not small enough to store it in the available places.

    Then perhaps peruse these various threads on hammock stands to find something that may work....https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...rchid=16571219

    Soooo, I decided to collect my senses and look at the secondhand market. There I found an affordable hardwood stand. The weather used to be great last week, but as soon as I made the deal on the stand it started to rain. I brought the stand home on monday, and I got the chance to test it yesterday evening. It did fit in my car but only barely.

    Like the old saying goes:
    Fast,
    Cheap,
    Done Right,
    Pick any two!

    I always like going SOBO; somehow, it feels like going downhill.

    ...and as it harm none, do what ye will.

    Thanks! For them the stand is the perfect height to annoy me easily.
    Also, one of them wants to join me in the hammock but with this one I fear the hammock would break. My brother was stupid/brave enough to let the dog in the hammock with him when he hung his own hammock on it, so the dog now thinks it's possible...
