I use the Grand Trunk Double as well. I have always used tree to tree. WA, ID and MT have never failed to provide an acceptable spot.I don't have pix, but the 2 person hammock by Grand Trunk is pretty awesome. Strings up in under a minute, is very comfortable and dries quickly if wet. Holds up to 400 pounds as well in case you have company!
Right-o!Hammocks are the Cream of sleeping... Will not be a Dirt Sleeper again. A great Benefit is do not have to move rocks or logs.. Just two tree's hang.. add tarp.. Done.
nice suspension for the UQ. I'm going to try something similar but with the 5x7 nylon tarp and reflectix for when it gets colder here in FL, instead of storing gear.
IF yea run your Strap to combine both Rails, and the Cross member for added support should be okay. The shear load, would be even out Vs. Hanging on one Rail alone. Unless you weight 400 pounds, then Might need to resort to a Tri-pod style hanging Or back to the Trees.I was always afraid of tying the hammock to the xterra rack. not sure if it could take the sideways pull...
I run a 15 foot Strap with a loop on one end. I take that and Slip it over both rails, Then Run it once or twice across the cross bars. and one lap over my Roof Rack, to dangle out the back end over the lift Gate. Then I just secure a toggle & add a Whoopie to it.how do you tie off using both rails? tie it coming off the back?
