dont want to hijack this thread but I have a question along the same line. I do a lot of atv camping and was wondering (have not yet tried it) if the racks on most atvs could support a hammock. Either hang a hammock between two atvs or one tree and an ATV
I also have a Honda Element on which I installed the Thule roof rack system. After seeing the amount of hardware that holds the roof rack on there is NO WAY in hell I would hang from mine. (even if I was a little guy).
I think you'll rip some very important goodies off if you try to hang a hammock off your car. And bust yer butt.
Just hangin' around.
Roll your front and rear window down and hang from the door beam!!
I have a fullsize Polaris ATV that weighs 750 lbs and that rack aint holding nothing!! might be able to use the bipod method and tie off to the hitch though!!
