Banana hammock failure...
I bought a banana hammock and couldn't get it up.
At the Atlanta RV Show I bought a "Fruit and Veggie Hammock" for our 5th wheel. Sweet Wife likes to take her "Magic Bullet" juicer machine along and takes an ample supply of all sorts of veggies and stuff to run through the thing. Including bananas. All of which take up space on the counter.
And here is the epic fail: The hammock mounts with two fairly substantial screw hooks that are to be screwed into the bottom of cabinetry. This works great in a house where the bottom of the cabinet is 1/2" real wood. In my trailer the bottom of the cabinet is a thin veneer. The veneer creates a space for the wiring for lights and such that attach under the cabinet, on the inside is a real wood bottom, but the outside is a thin panel to hide wiring under the cabinet.
In my humble opinion, the veneer is not substantial enough to support the weight of the loaded hammock without the screws pulling out. Therefore there is no suitable place in the trailer to mount the thing.
Nothing wrong with the hammock, just no place to put it.
