If you’re an adventure seeker, you’re probably no stranger to road trips. Driving through the country, up and down the mountains and along the different coastlines can bring with it once-in-a-lifetime sights. Some of them are so breathtaking and tranquil, you’ll want to spend some time there before you head out.

Making its way around Facebook is a new invention called the Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand. At its core, this gadget lets you set up hammocks anywhere you go. The accessory attaches to the hitch of your vehicle, and you can attach multiple hammocks — or just one if you’re riding solo. Find a campground near the beach and set up your own hammock, no trees necessary. Pull up to the edge of the dock and spend your afternoon fishing. Set up shop for the evening and watch the sunset over the mountains.

You can use the Hammaka Trailer Hitch Stand with any standard 2-inch hitch receiver, and it only takes about 10 minutes to put together the stand’s three pieces. Designed with durable steel, each side of the stand can hold up to 250 pounds. It even has the option for foot rests so you can really kick back and relax. You can opt for a full-length hammock or chair-style hammocks to read or enjoy your local view.

Keep in mind, though, that the hitch stand and hammocks are traditionally sold separately, but you can also opt for a combo package if you’d like to order both.
