i recently joined and have been going through the forums trying to find info or examples of people who might hang in a pickup bed.
how deep the 'standard' 6" cut x 80" model when full? top to bottom height?
i was thinking about a bridge hammock. what holds me back from trying is the depth of the bag when full.
the depth of the box is 20". would i have enough room top to bottom?
i have a full size pickup with an 8' bed and a topper. i want to try hanging in the bed, parallel to the 8' direction, under the topper. i have been sleeping on double thermarests in the bed. i'd like to try and find something more comfortable.
my main reason is i travel with a dog, and i am trying to eliminate motel stays on long weekend trips. if/where i can hang outside, i would probably do that. but in the absence of suitable location or trees, i would like to rig it in my pickup.
i think i can rig the tailgate end with a cargo type strap with a flat hook on it to hook under the rear bumper and up and over the tailgate in the closed position. basically the same at the cab end, hooked to the frame, over the front of the box, and between the topper and the bed rail. i could use a ratchet on the tailgate end, located outside, near the bumper to tighten things up.
i look forward to your thoughts.
