Stealthy Hammock Setup

So has anyone setup a Hammock on the side of a BUS??

I'm looking for a low profile/stealthy setup/solution, I have attached images of the two hammocks, I need setup and a solution suited for both. I only want to use the Hammock and not the metal frame which I am planning to find a solution that will be fixed to my bus?

One side of the hammock can attach to any point on the bus. And use a spiked pole for the other side..
Or make 2 arms that attach to the bus and hang it alongside the bus, almost like an awning set up.
Just off the top of my head.
Home Depot sells fence post spikes that go on the bottom of a 4x4 post... That could be the side that goes in the ground.

Why not use the metal poles and set something up on the roof?

I'm thinking that but I don't want it to look to crazy, so that's why I was asking for a Stealthy or low profile setup?

Some people already think we're crazy for living in a bus. Why let that worry you? A gazebo on the roof and a hammock with a view are a great idea.
