17043RE: [Hammock Camping] Hammock Stand
- Mar 5, 2007I've been looking at them real hard lately. I agree with Tim that the
Vario and the Jobek appear the best. Both are adjustable and break
down. It appears that the Jobek will break down a little further than
the Vario without tools. All the joints in the Jobek are held together
by handscrews (including the removable feet). The feet on the Vario are
held by a bolt than can be removed with wrenches if you need to pack it
more compactly. I think I like the Vario better because the cross bars
for the feet turn down on the ends and I believe it would be a little
more stable on slightly uneven ground. The Jobek does come with wheels,
but wheels can be ordered and put on the Vario. I'm ordering the Vario
today and also ordering a set of wheels from a different dealer.
Best price I've found for the Vario is $90.81 at
The wheels and the Jobek can all be ordered from

I'm trying to find a good place to get a hammock stand.
I have a hammock that I bought in Mexico that is great, however, it
doesn't have the wood spreader bars and requires a LONG span to use it
without touching the ground.
Recently I found a used hammock with the wood spreader bars at a
Habitat for Humanity store. I had to buy it!
I'm going to take my hammocks with me on my RV trip to nap in and
sometimes sleep under the stars. I'm sure I won't always find
the "right" trees to hang my hammck from and I also don't want to
injure the bark. I've seen hammock stands for sale but I don't want
to spend an arm and a leg for it. Any suggestions?
