I am looking to build a detachable hammock stand structure for camping. I was originally thinking about making one out of PVC but I am in the UK and it isn’t cost effective as it looks like it needs to be imported. I am therefore looking for alternative materials that are durable enough to bear a heavy load (up to two adults) but are light enough to carry when detached.
Any suggestions? I have been looking at polycarbonate tubes but I am unsure if it would be rigid enough with weight pulling on it and what diameter the tube would have to be. Any ideas are greatly appreciated!
