Seattle-based McLean Metalworks has devised a way to rest up at any rest stop. The company’s hitch-mounted Hammock Mount attaches to the two-inch receiver on practically any car, truck or minivan, thanks to a pair of steel arms. Each one telescopes outward and securely locks in place. The system weighs 40 pounds and can support up to 300 pounds, and hammocks up to 114 inches long. Purchase the Hammock Mount for $450, although there are more basic and therefore less-expensive units (as low at $200). Hammock prices start at $70. Check out the full line plus accessories at
