    I have a ladder rack I added to my truck for hauling my canoe. I have put a 10' pole across the rack and attached my hammock to the ends of it for a short try at home. Turns out I have never needed to use it overnight, but I think it would work fine.

    Have been pondering this setup as well, but I have a 61/2 ft bed with a camper shell that is flush with roof cf the cab. So not a lot of height. But gotta figure a way somehow, must have my hammock. Don't know if I can even sleep on anything else anymore. I don't care if my butt's only a couple of inches off the bed of truck as long as im hanging. Hope to see some good ideas posted. I agree with old gringo about something with ridgepole. I thought about eyebolts hanging from roof of my camper shell, but thought better of it. Fiberglass shell probably wouldn't take the weight( only rated to 300lbs).

    This post by Rikall shows that all things are possible. If these guys can hang in a Mitsubishi....

    Hmmm I have an F150 and I have the Thule Goal Post that you put in the rear hitch to mount a canoe....I have to give this a shot for sure!

    Just a thought... no idea if it would hurt the truck. Just need some long webbing to go from front hooks. Might be too much stress on the roof though.

    I wonder if you could put the webbing over a set of racks on top of the truck roof and then to the front hooks? Hmmm interesting idea!
