    Is the suspension easily changeable?

    I don't have any experience with much so I'm just wondering.....

    I see on some hammocks its built in...
    others are just larks head....
    I see it says sewn gathered end .
    so it runs through the channel ...
    but can it be changed?

    It has a hood thing sewn at the end where the gather comes together. Yes it can be changed you need to flip it inside out on the end to get a clear view of what is going on.

    I haven't had to change either of my Dream hammocks but I'll bet it easy.
    Changing HH to whoopies is a little tough but well worth it.

    Yeah it was in my search for "changing suspension to whoopie with dutch hooks" I came across a thread about the difficulty someone was having on a completely different hammock...

    Yes, it's simply larksheaded through a sewn channel.
    Take a peek at this page for some photos of how things fit together.

    You shouldn't have any problem. It's best to take apart only one end at a time so you can see how everything goes together. On the ThunderBird, the ridgeline and peak bag loops also hang off the suspension.
