Get some fold up camping chairs.. like $15-$25 each, some even have foot rests on them like a recliner

Personally, I think it's a bad idea to hand it from your trailer

The cross members in the trailer is tubing which is very strong. I'd be game to try it. I have a netting type hammock without the spreader bars and I plan on using it in the trailer?

It's strong used the way it was designed but putting a hole in the middle of it to hold an eye screw could severely weaken it. In fact it could cause the roof to bow in from the weight of a person.

i wouldnt need to put a hole anywhere for a screw eye or anything, there is a "d-ring"---best word I can think of to describe it--- that I could snap the hammock on to

Some things are meant to have weight hung from them, some things are not.

I would guess the tubular cross members of roof or your horse trailer were not designed to structurally hold that much weight hanging from them.

Just because it is there does not mean it was meant to have things hung from it.

I don't know much about trailers, but if the top of a trailer can hold snow on top of it, you shouldn't have a problem. Our trailer was completely buried this year, and no damage was discovered.

Not the same thing. You don't get ~150lb + of snow concentrated in a square inch of roof.

I wouldn't... However there are free-standing hammock type things that don't require another type of aerial support system...

Yeah, I would vote for the free standing hammock system rather than hanging it...just to be safe.

Some free standing hammocks fold up nicely, so you could store it in the dressing room and then take it out as needed :)
