    It doesn't really matter if you connect the hammock close to the top rail hang points as should be done.

    Several people have reported cutting pieces at various lengths so they can mix and match to vary the top rail length depending on which hammock they use.

    I am using 2, 5' pieces and 1, 4' piece for 14'. Want plenty of room to hang the tarp. I have the short piece in the middle, but mainly it is just for visual reasons.

    Lowes sells "closet rods" made of wood that are at least 10 feet long. I do not remember what they are made of.

    I'm going to try my hand at this myself. Our boy scout camp has many different kinds of camping from wooded sites to the middle of a field, so I need to be ready for anything, lol.

    Their ebay name is little_apple_liquidation and their email is joshuagramp@gmail.com

    I just want to make it clear that I am not connected anyway with this seller, just passing on a deal.
    Thanks for the source! I contacted him and he's sending me an invoice now. I just moved into a new house, so it's not like I have a whole lot of spare time.. but I'm adding a stand to the to-do list
