Hammock Mounting Point On Exterior

Hey gang,

I really, REALLY want to use my hammock now that I'm parked for a while. I have a very large tree about 10 feet from the side of my AS and there's really no place else to mount the OTHER end of the hammock other than somewhere on the AS.

I understand pretty well how the AS is structurally built and I am not very confident that I can have a mounting point for one end of a hammock that *may* at some point hold two people.

I also understand that I could be wrong about this and am excited at the *possibility* that there is actually a place on the outside of the AS where I could potentially mount the other end of a hammock or hammock rigging.

I can take some photos of my options tomorrow. If anyone has any ideas that would be tremendous.

The metal ribs are to thin for the stress of fasteners holding a hammock.
I recommend that you do not do that.

Maybe one of these?

Find a second hand bike rack for the TV receiver?.....or have a fab shop weld one up.
