    Convert a Tent Cot into a Hammock?

    would it be feasible to take a basic tent cot and modify it so you can hang it?

    Probably not a good idea. The tent cot is designed for use with some sort of frame (typically metal). Back "in the day" I was in a motorcycle club. Since I was the new guy I would have to drag around gear. The cool part was that I found a little trailer with a tent cot built in similar to what you see below. So while the rest of the guys were passed out on the ground I was fairly comfortable.



    Anyway they ended up being involved in some questionable activities so I quit the motorcycle club. (More like a gang, if you ask me.)

    Yeah but I thought maybe I could suspend the frame using some steel cables or something.
