Ounces lighter than other hammocks, but just as perfectly practical.

I am looking for a short span hanging...
I am looking for a short span hanging hammock - I plan on hanging it from the ceiling of my vanagon and it looks like I have right at 8 ft to work with - So 3 questions (1) Is 8 ft enough span? (2) What is the sag at 8ft? (How far is the sag from the hang point?) (3) I am 6^3 and 240# is there room in this for any diagonal (assuming the 8ft hang) ?
I appreciate any help that I can get.
When this hammock is pulled tight (like a guitar string tight) it measures 8 feet long. 8 feet is the maximum span that the hammock itself can cover (the straps allow for adjusting between spans). As you narrow the distance of the span, you're going to get more sag in the hammock. When I've set mine up guitar string tight (due to a huge span between trees and maxing out the slap-strap system) there was minimal sag, maybe only 2-3 feet, but the hammock was a nightmare to get in and out of like that. The prime setup I've found is about 6.5-7 linear feet between connections, where you can expect about 3-4 feet of sag in the hammock.
I think you could make this work in the van, but you're going to want secure anchors that don't allow additional stretch like the slap straps sometimes do, and you're probably going to be just a couple inches off of the floor.

Will you guys ever stock the Khaki version of this hammock ?
I hope so!

The hammocks featured seem to be close to my idea. Do they come with the hardware required to suspend the hammock from my ceiling in my home??
The only included hardware is 2 aluminum carabiners. So you would, in essence, have to devise a way to create some sort of anchors in your ceiling.
