Installing a hammock into my Campervan

In my free time I find myself browsing for random items on Amazon.com that will usually add to the clutter of my space. However this past week I stumbled upon a really nice hammock on the lightning deal. Originally $69.00, I picked this hammock kit up for a total of $20.00 with my free Amazon Prime shipping.

When purchasing this hammock, I had the options of a single or a doublewide. A single is smaller than a double, so I opted for the larger one just so I have more room incase I want to lounge in it sideways. The added size makes it a lot more comfortable and adds to the stability in my opinion.

This is a great addition to my campervan, which is a 1986 Chevy G20. With the portability and the ultralight style of this hammock, I would recommend it to anyone even just to have if out camping. I am eagerly waiting for the warmer weather to hit up in Connecticut before I string her outside to a tree. Because of the straps, I am able to hang one end from the van and another to a tree if I wanted to.

In total this takes me about 3 minutes to set up and take down. Most of this time is however trying to get out because I am a big dude. I would totally recommend this hammock to anyone who is looking for an ultra portable way to sleep, camp, or just relax in.
