    There would be a weight penalty but you're gonna pull the things out of the stake pockets and carry in the bed anyway, right?

    My thoughts too... the diagonal in a 6.5 bed is about 8' so it wouldn't take much to increase that so you could hang in comfort....

    If all goes well with my next test, I'm close to finishing a self standing that could sit in the pickup bed, or on the ground, or inside a room, etc.
    Tag with Home if your thread is more about home hammocks. Thanks!
