    Short version...you'll need a long ridgepole and taller legs (I suggest at least 7' for a TDS)...the WBRR is LONG.

    I also use a 16 foot ridgepole for the WBRR. 12 is definitely too short, 16 feels just about right. You might be able to get away with 14 or 15ish, but I wouldn't go much shorter than that.

    Joyfully, Turtlelady
    The middle piece that you see in the picture is a piece of PVC pipe that I have covering the ends of two lengths of top rail. One length of the rail has a large wooden dowel fixed to the inside of it, such that it can be used to quickly join one rail to the other. I then slide the PVC outer shell over the joined area for some extra piece of mind.

    I had 15 feet in my head so 16 it will be. Unfortunately decreases the options for an indoor hang
    Thanks for the help.

    The pics look great. What is your basic material? I haven't gone through all the Turtlelady design threads yet.

    One thing for sure, if you're planning for a 12' tarp a 10' ridge pole is going to present an immediate issue.

    Don't know about the WBRR and how much room it needs... Have you hung it in the trees yet to see if you need to change the suspension?
    Have not had a chance to tree hang it yet. I'm tree rich but configuration poor. Plus it's been raining.

    See post #203 on page 21 of this thread.

    Looking at my photo...the straps are a few inches in from the ends and there's about 12" of strap on each end. Get creative and attach the hammock at the ends of the ridgepole and you should be able to get by with 14'.

    Going with the 16', so next question would be....is it better for the ridgepole couple to be in the middle or offset, or doesn't matter? Also, would heavy duty bungee inside the length help with pre-load stability?
    If no rain tomorrow...hang day!

    ymmv but I found 14' to be just about perfect. I went with 10' for indoors and it's doable but I don't sleep as well.
