A hanging A-frame-style/pyramid tent (a la the "Jungle Hammock")

I came across this photo, have no idea who makes this tent/model (or if its a custom creation) but it certainly is cool. It seems to be going for the part hammock/part tent thing- a sleeping space away from crawling bugs, snakes, and the damp earth perhaps.
    Funny thing is, as apparently there are only so many unique designs, ideas, and approaches out there, I already have a very similar structure ready for my next book- but more so a wooden, reinforced, swinging A-frame micro/tiny house.
   On a similar tangent, check out my video on the hammock-tent I have from the company VERY cool, ultra-rugged!

  1. I like the idea of being off the ground for snakes but now, besides worrying about a rattlesnake around the perimeter of the tent, I'd also have to worry about one being UNDER it and they really WOULD love that.

  2. yeah, like I said, I have no idea who makes this tent/don't know many details. Sorry, I would hope the floor is at least supportive in some way.

  3. They're sold under the name "Treepees" and are sold as a kid's place to hide away rather than as a legitimate camping tent.

  4. love it- will check out the site- might not be ultra-functional in some ways, but its still pretty cool/fun looking....
