    Default Recommend me a trampoline

    I'm after a trampoline that is big enough to hold me (so up to 70kgs in case I put on some more weight) and is child friendly too obviously.

    I have a $400 ish budget and want something fairly compact.

    Any recommendations? Any other features I should be looking for? Anything I should be avoiding?

    I bought a target trampoline 3 years ago and it's still going strong. We got the 15 foot one because it will hold 150kg but the smaller ones hold 100kg.

    I put the bulk of it together myself and just needed DH for a little while to help line some stuff up.

    Vuly. They're not cheap, but they are quality. We've had ours over 2 years and the pads are still in perfect condition and not cracking like the cheap ones do. They also offer half price parts for life which is great if your tramp thinks it can fly and you loose posts in a storm like we did!

    Another vote for Vuly. We have replaced the net (storm damage) and will probably replace the pads this Summer. Ours is about 5years old now.

    Def not in that budget...but springfree. Ours has been out in the weather for 3 solid years and is still in amazing condition. We're not even close to thinking about needing to change any parts, and we have pre-teens pile on it, pull on the net, lean on the net etc. It gets its fair share of abuse. I predict we'll get ten solid years out of it...which when I break down the initial outlay, it works out to be just over $100 a year.

    It won't let me edit...if you can afford the initial outlay of a springfree, you won't regret it.

    We just went through this. We have littlies & spring frees didn't get great reviews for bounce with low weight. Also looked into Vuly tramps but figured we could get two (or 3!) cheapies for the price of a Vuly. So smaller cheapie for now, then bigger cheapie in 5 or so years when we want/need to upsize. We got a Toys-R-Us one.
