The real art of conversation is not only to say the right thing at the right time,
but also to leave unsaid the wrong thing at the tempting moment...

Nice idea but I wonder how small the supports will break down, they look like they could be a bit bulky.

Looks as if a traditional stand would use up less room and less set-up time.

Yes, but this looks way more stable... It's a gimmick, I can't remember ever wishing I had a hammock anywhere I've parked my Escape :shrug:

I've seen people tie hammocks to a nearby tree and then a solid mounting on on their vehicle itself. As mentioned above that looks kind of big as far as storage is concerned.

Hopefully some more to come in the future...(suggestions welcome :D)
