Talking Hammock in a trailer? What do you think?

So I have been cleaning out and organizing my trailer ever since my horse got back from Aiken. And I decided that the coolest thing I could do would to put our rope hammock chair in my trailer and it would hang from the ceiling. My trailer is very open so it would work. However, my only question is, do you think that the trailer could support someone hanging in a hammock? I weigh roughly 125 lbs. My mom says its a bad idea, since our trailer is old, but I wanted to know some of your thoughts!!

I would have thought that it might put question to your insurance (depending on what sort you have) should somthing break.

They make "levitation" hammocks. Like it's a chair structure that hangs off a support system but isn't attached into anything. If I can find a picture or better description I'll attach it. I think it's called a Pod chair? It hangs like a hammock chair only it has a supported frame that doesn't have to be secured into the ceiling. That might work if you can't put a hanging hammock chair?

I don't know how those things attach to your ceiling (I am assuming it is some kind of bolt attachment that you drill a hole for?). I'm sure that if you reinforce the area that you will be hanging it from (either with wood or sheet-metal), then it would be fine.

in my trailer there is a ummm whats the word...attachment for lack of a better word that I could snap it onto... I have a hammock chair sitting in my closet and figured I would put it to use if I could!

What is the point? Is it so that you can chill out at the end of a ride or on a weekend trip? I can't figure why you would want to.

eh just to have in the trailer for horse shows, since I tend to feel sick in the middle of the day alot and want to lay down. Plus I can't have it in my house since my cats play with it and tear it up, so I figured it would be nice for horse shows for my mom to sit in too while I tack up or wait around for ride times and scores. Just something fun to have!

The roof of most horse trailers is not structurally designed to have heavy things hanging from it.
