1. SkyBound Stratos Trampoline – Editor’s Choice 2019

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Although our list of trampolines contains the cream of the crop, there’s always one product that ends up standing above the rest. In this case, the Stratos Trampoline by SkyBound has received top honors and is our top pick of trampoline.

For starters, this SkyBound Stratos Trampoline features a gorgeous high-density net with a concave design that keeps jumpers safe and on the jumping mat. Twelve curved, padded and galvanized steel enclosure poles are positioned outside of the jumping surface to support the net. This trampoline has been engineered to use a push-pin bolt technology and machine welding, which provides a uniform angle and fit on every trampoline.

While many trampoline brands proclaim how amazing their springs are, SkyBound delivers. This Stratos Trampoline comes with 8.5 inch premium springs and a 3mm gauge steel, and each spring is cold-dipped in ionized zinc, which prevents early rusting and corrosion. The springs included in this trampoline have been proven to be 50% more durable and bouncier than standard springs. SkyBound’s springs can be easily noticed from the rest due to their bright gold color and rubber-capped spring hooks.

Additionally, this SkyBound Stratos Trampoline is put through an immense amount of testing for safety. As a result, it meets or exceeds every standard that the American Society for Testing and Materials requires to be ASTM Certified.

While this trampoline boasts a list of incredible features, our favorite has to be the brand’s industry leading warranty. SkyBound stands behind their products in the form of this warranty and covers the metal frame for 10 years, the jumping mat for 2 years, the net for 1 year, the springs for 1 year, and the pad for 6 months. As a trampoline is quite an investment and is subject to the elements both cold and hot, we really love the warranty that comes along with purchasing this trampoline.

2. Skywalker 15ft Trampoline – Best Trampoline with Basketball Hoop

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Plain and simple, you can’t go wrong with a Skywalker Trampoline. Before we get into the specifics regarding this 15ft round type, we first have to mention Skywalker Trampolines’ patented No-Gap enclosure system, an innovative technology that keeps users safe. The No-Gap enclosure system brings the net and the jump mat together, making it impossible for adults or children alike to be harmed in any way by getting limbs caught in the gaps around the edges of a standard trampoline.

In addition to the safety features this trampoline has to offer, it comes with a basketball hoop and ball, offering hours of fun for the whole family. The hoop has an easy-attach design and a breakaway rim, eliminating any chance of limbs getting stuck or injured on the rim when going in for a slam dunk. When it comes to family memories being made outdoors, playing basketball on a trampoline is sure to get the job done.

Furthermore, this Skywalker Trampoline comes with a dual closure system, which includes a zipper as well as a latch clip to ensure that users stay safely inside the trampoline while jumping. Adding to this, the enclosure system itself is padded with foam for added protection.

Skywalker doesn’t mess around in creating a long-lasting product.  The frame of this trampoline is made of galvanized steel, providing exceptional durability and rust-resistance. Also, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention the springs, which are also rust-resistant and made of steel.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

[/su_note]

3. Ultega Trampoline – Best Small Trampoline

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Germany means business when it comes to a well-engineered product. Ultega knows this and makes it a point to note that their products are engineered in Germany and are of utmost quality.

To start, this trampoline has a galvanized steel frame with legs that bend outward so as to prevent the trampoline from tipping over. This Ultega Trampoline has a sleek design and the uniquely engineered legs are something we’ve never seen on any other brand of trampoline.

Adding to the well structured frame, Ultega touts the safety of their products. This trampoline includes a sturdy enclosure net held up by eight padded, steel poles. In addition, the entire perimeter of the trampoline is padded to protect jumpers from the 88 springs outside of the jumping net.

One thing that really stands out about this trampoline when comparing it to the others on this list is the number of different accessories available. While this trampoline doesn’t include any accessories with purchase, Ultega offers ladders and rain covers as well as replacement jumping mats, extra springs, frame paddings and safety nets.

Like the Upper Bounce Trampoline that we’ll get to later, Ultega offers a plethora of sizing options. In fact, Ultega offers the smallest trampoline on this last, at 6ft, while the largest trampoline they have to offer is 14ft. In total, there are five sizes available, which means you can be sure you’ll find a size that fits your space perfectly.

Ultega has engineered a solid and safe trampoline at a solid price point. From the galvanized steel frame to the plethora of padding and number of accessories and replacement parts available, Ultega provides future trampoline owners with all that they need to enjoy playing and exercising on their trampoline for years to come. Couple this with the number of sizing options available and this trampoline easily makes any shortlist.

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

Ultega has really hit a home run with this trampoline. With engineering done in Germany and the number of sizing options available at a reasonable price, it deserves some serious consideration.

[/su_note]

4. AlleyOOP 14ft Trampoline – Best Outdoor Trampoline 

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

There’s a lot to like about AlleyOOP’s 14ft Trampoline and its patented VariableBounce technology. AlleyOOP describes the technology a simple innovation that provides exceptional shock absorption and increased bounce performance. Although it sounds complicated, the process is fairly simple: while some of the trampoline’s spring engage immediately after a jumper lands, some springs engage a split-second later. That split-second, although seemingly minuscule to you and I, makes a big difference as it helps the jumper to absorb impact forces gradually rather than abruptly. This technology puts less stress on both child and adult bodies as the springs absorb more fall energy so the body doesn’t have to. Summing it up, AlleyOOP’s VariableBounce technology gives users a more gradual and forgiving landing, as well as a greater return bounce.

Adding to the VariableBounce technology, AlleyOOP takes great pride in the quality of materials this trampoline is made from. A pre-galvanized steel frame, 96 extra-stretch high-performance springs, and Permatron jumping mat combine for an extremely high quality product. If you’re wondering what Permatron means (as we initially were), here’s an explanation: AlleyOOP’s Permatron jumping mat includes a UV shield as well as multiple rows of stitching (10 to be exact), making for a high UV, strength, and water protection jumping mat.

Following in the theme of quality of materials, we’re huge fans of this trampoline’s powder coating. Powder coating, if you’re curious, is a durable and high-end finish that protects more than paint can and looks absolutely beautiful. Powder coated products can withstand the toughest of conditions, meaning it will last for a very long time. As if that weren’t enough, this trampoline is powder coated in a deep forest green, which looks phenomenal with any landscape.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • Patented VariableBounce technology, providing for a safer landing and higher bounce
  • Made of high quality products to withstand the toughest of weather conditions
  • Deep forest green powder coating, providing a beautiful and durable product
  • Easy installation safety net
  • Strong and safe enclosure system
  • Springs connected with steel rings and high-strength loop straps

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • Pricier than some of the other trampolines on our list
  • Enclosure netting might take some time to attach properly

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a high tech, high quality trampoline with a beautiful design as well as extensive safety features, the AlleyOOP 14ft trampoline won’t disappoint.

[/su_note]

5. Springfree 11ft Trampoline – Best Square Trampoline

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

This wouldn’t be considered a top trampoline reviews article if we didn’t have at least one Springfree Trampoline in the top 10. Before anything else is discussed, we first need to talk about why Springfree’s trampolines are so unique (hint: it’s in the name).

If it wasn’t already clear, Springfree is unique from every other brand of trampoline in that their trampolines don’t actually have any springs. Instead, Springfree uses flexible composite rods that sit beneath and around the jumping mat. Springfree explains that compared to traditional trampolines, the lack of springs in theirs provides for a safer jump. Springfree claims that because of the lack of springs, the 11ft jumping mat is equivalent to a 14ft jumping mat on a traditional trampoline.

In addition to Springfree’s springless technology, they claim that their trampolines are the world’s first smart trampolines. They make this claim as each of their products includes an integrated digital game system with over 10 games and applications to exercise the body and mind. Oh yea, if you were wondering, the digital game system is weatherproof (duh). What type of games can be played with this game system, you ask? Check out Springfree’s website for a list of all of the games and apps included with purchase.

Adding to the already impressive features above, this Springfree trampoline is safe; so safe, in fact, that the safety design is patented. We’ll touch on three of Springfree’s features that make up the safety design of this trampoline. To start, Springfree creates their products with a FlexiNet enclosure, which is a soft-touch knit that is tear-resistant and has twice the UV protection of the industry standard. Next up we have the SoftEdge mat, a jumping mat made a tough geo-textile fabric with the ability to absorb 30 times more impact than a normal padding. Finally, Springfree’s mat and net rods are a composite material that’s three time stronger than steel; yea, you read that right. Unbelievably, these rods are made from the same material as Boeing’s newest airplanes.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • The only brand of springless trampolines on the market
  • World first smart trampoline, thanks to tgoma, an interactive digital game system
  • Patented safety design thanks to extensive research and development
  • Jumper max weight of 220 pounds and structural max weight of 1100 pounds
  • Double powder coated galvanized steel frames
  • Basketball hoop and ladder included in the purchase price

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • Higher price point than some of the other trampolines on our list

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

There’s no denying that Springfree trampolines are pricey. There’s also no denying that they are arguably the most innovative and unique trampolines on the market. While this 11ft Springfree Trampoline is quite the investment, the R&D that went into its production makes it worth its weight in gold (well, not literally, but you get what we mean, right?).

[/su_note]

6. Upper Bounce Trampoline – Best Quality Trampoline

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

When it comes to options, Upper Bounce Trampoline has you covered. As our comparison chart lists, this easy assemble trampoline comes in a range of sizes, starting from 7.5 ft all the way up to 16 ft. No matter the size you choose, your trampoline will come with all of the features listed below in this review.

As the above paragraph states, Upper Bounce touts the easy assemble and disassemble feature this trampoline was designed with. No hardware is needed when removing the poles and netting from Upper Bounce trampolines when desiring to move it from harsh winter conditions. The ability to easily move this trampoline around means you’ll rarely need to replace any trampoline parts. In addition, Upper Bounce offers weather covers, allowing you to easily winterize your trampoline.

Like the Skywalker trampoline we reviewed earlier, this Upper Bounce trampoline includes a No-Gap enclosure system. We’re huge fans of these types of systems on trampolines, as they completely eliminate the risk of being injured by a limb being caught in between the enclosure net and the jumping surface.

Staying on the subject of safety features, this trampoline touts protective safety pads. Safety pads provide the jumper protection from landing on the steel frame or injuring herself or himself on the springs. They’re high quality pads with an inch of thickness, are extremely shock-absorbent and wont lose shape or absorb water. Rounding out the safety features of this trampoline is the high quality safety enclosure, complete with a dual closure entry with a zipper and buckles, and made from 100% premium Terylene mesh material, providing maximum durability.

In addition to creating a safe trampoline, Upper Bounce has created a trampoline that is also extremely durable, made from high quality metals and materials. This trampoline also features a powder coated frame, which, as we learned in the AlleyOOP review, means the frame on this trampoline is rust resistant, durable, and beautiful. Rust-resistant springs and an incredibly durable jumping mat round out (no pun intended) a wonderfully-made round trampoline.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • Comes in a myriad of sizes for every space
  • Easy assemble and disassemble feature
  • No-Gap Enclosure System
  • Protective safety pad and high quality safety enclosure
  • Powder coated frame, providing durability and beauty
  • Rust-resistant springs and a durable jumping mat

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • Enclosure net may not be as high quality as some of the others on this list

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

An Upper Bounce Trampoline is an excellent option for any size family and backyard, due to the number of sizing options available. Throw in the safety features and durability of this trampoline, as well as Upper Bounce’s stellar reputation, and you’ve got a great option for your home.

[/su_note]

7. Zupapa Trampoline – Best Cheap Trampoline

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Much like the Upper Bounce Trampoline above, this Zupapa Trampoline comes in a variety of sizes (four, to be exact) to ensure that you find the perfect fit for both your family and your backyard.

When we set out to write this article, deciding which 10 trampolines would actually make our list was no easy task. One thing we did know was that this Zupapa Trampoline was going to make the cut. You may have noticed the text above reading ‘TUV Approved‘ and are now wondering what that means. Allow us to explain: TUV is the Technical Inspection Association, a group of independent consultants that test the safety and rule-compliance of a myriad of products, from motor vehicles, to energy installations, and even amusement rides. TUV approved products have gone through extensive testing which means that consumers can be confident in the product they’re purchasing and the safety it provides.

While receiving the honor of being TUV approved is quite impressive, Zupapa didn’t stop there. In addition to this distinction, this Zupapa Trampoline a rust resistant and galvanized steel frame, a high-quality polyethylene material enclosure, as well as padded pole-sleeves for added protection when jumping.

Adding to Zupapa’s already impressive list of features is the fact that this trampoline looks at the term ‘Weight Limit’ and laughs in its face. This trampoline has a weight capacity of 330 pounds, which is much higher than the average trampoline. This weight capacity proves that Zupapa is extremely confident in the product they’ve produced and its ability to withstand jumpers of all shapes and sizes.

While some trampoline companies sell accessories such as ladders or rain covers separately from their trampolines, Zupapa believes that purchasing a trampoline shouldn’t make you consider dipping into your retirement fund and includes all of the necessary parts in the standard purchase price.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • Sizing options to fit the needs of your family and space
  • TUV Approved
  • Galvanized Steel Frame
  • High-quality polyethylene material enclosure
  • Weight capacity of 330 pounds – higher than most other trampolines
  • Standard purchase includes a ladder and rain cover

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • While most of the trampolines on this list have the net inside of the springs, this trampoline has the net outside

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

If you’re looking for a reasonably-priced trampoline with great safety features as well as a higher than normal weight capacity, this Zupapa Trampoline should definitely make your short list.

[/su_note]

8. Skywalker 15ft Trampoline – Best for Gymnastics

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

As you might have already realized, this is the second Skywalker Trampoline that made it to best trampolines article. What makes this trampoline different, however, is that it’s rectangular rather than round like the majority of trampolines out there.

To start, like the round Skywalker Trampoline listed above, this trampoline also has Skywalker’s patented No-Gap enclosure system, which eliminates the dangerous gaps between the enclosure net and jumping surface. Thus, limbs are kept safe and out of harms way. While on the topic of safety, this trampoline features a padded enclosure system. This system contains 8 upright foam padded poles which provide more stability than a traditional trampoline. Also, each pole is situated at an angle at the top, which keeps the enclosure net kept away from the poles, providing added safety.

As this trampoline is rectangular, it provides an even bounce from one end of the trampoline to the other. This feature is extremely important for gymnasts or those learning gymnastics, as it means there will be a superb bounce no matter the area of the trampoline where the jumper is jumping.

While it isn’t required by law, this Skywalker Trampoline is tested immensely for both safety and durability. Because of the rigorous testing that each Skywalker Trampoline is put through, they either meet or exceed every standard required to be certified by the American Society for Testing and Materials.

Adding to the above information, this Skywalker Trampoline has a rust-resistant galvanized steel construction. Accompanying the construction is a thick UV-protected spring pad, as well as extra long-rust resistant springs. Skywalker means serious business when designing their trampolines, which are some of the safest and most durable on the market.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • Patented no-gap enclosure system
  • Padded enclosure system
  • Rectangular trampoline, providing an even bounce
  • Meets or exceeds ASTM safety standards
  • Galvanized steel construction and UV-protected spring pad
  • Dual closure system with a zipper and latch clip

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • May be difficult finding space for this trampoline as its larger than most
  • Installation directions may not be as clear as they should be

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

Somewhat of a rarity in the trampoline market is Skywalker’s rectangular trampoline; its offering of an even bounce for gymnasts or those learning gymnastics makes it the perfect choice for an aspiring Olympian.

[/su_note]

9. Exacme Trampoline – Best for Adults

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Although they’re not the most popular, Exacme Trampolines have definitely made their mark in the trampoline world for a number of different reasons. One of the most notable reasons, and one of the reasons why this Exacme Trampoline made it onto our top trampolines list, is its weight capacity. While most trampolines have a maximum weight of around 250 pounds, this Exacme Trampoline blows past the competition with a weight capacity of 375 pounds. One would be correct in assuming that due to the amount of weight this trampoline can bear, it is extremely sturdy and durable.

Another notable feature of this Exacme Trampoline is the certifications that it holds. This trampoline has gone through extensive testing and has been TUV certified, GST testing approved, and UV testing approved. Exacme is serious when it comes to creating trampoline that blows past benchmarks and this trampoline is a true testament of that.

Like many of the other trampolines included in our list, this trampoline has a rust-resistant galvanized steel frame. Unlike many other trampolines, however, this Exacme Trampoline comes with a heavy duty galvanized ladder with slip resistant rungs to protect both children and adults alike from injury going in and coming out of the trampoline.

Touching further on the durability of this trampoline, it contains other high quality materials like sturdy straps and ropes and 6W-shaped legs. The sturdy straps and ropes help in securing the net to the trampoline. In addition to this, the net door as a heavy-duty zipper to keep jumpers safe inside. In regards to the W-shaped legs, most trampolines have 4W or 5W legs, while this Exacme Trampoline has 6W-shaped legs. These 6W-shaped legs have 12 balanced contact points, providing for a more stable and safe trampoline jumping experience.

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

[su_row][su_column size=”1/2″]

Pros

  • Weight capacity of 375 pounds – the highest on our list
  • TUV Certified, and GST/UV testing approved
  • Rust-resistant galvanized steel frame
  • Heavy duty galvanized ladder included
  • High quality materials for added durability
  • 6W-shaped legs with 12 balanced contact points

[/su_column][su_column size=”1/2″]

Cons

  • Enclosure net may not be as high quality as some of the others on this list
  • While most of the trampolines on this list have the net inside of the springs, this trampoline has the net outside

[/su_column][/su_row]

[/su_note]

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Bottom Line

This Exacme Trampoline provides the highest weight capacity on our list at 375 pounds and has been proven safe by extensive testing. At its reasonable price, we can’t give this trampoline enough praise with all it has to offer.

[/su_note]

10. Skytric Trampoline – Best for the Family

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

The Rundown

Skytric Trampolines is a sister brand of another trampoline brand you may have heard of: Upper Bounce Trampolines. Skytric Trampolines have a number of impressive features and are a great option for experienced gymnasts and trampoline dabblers alike.

This Skytric Trampoline comes in four different sizes to suit your needs. Each size, no matter how small, has a 330 pound weight capacity. In doing extensive research on a number of different trampolines and trampoline brands, we can say with certainty that it’s rare for smaller trampolines (such as the 8ft Skytric version) to have the same weight capacity as their larger counterparts.

Like other trampolines on this list, this Skytric Trampoline also includes a no-gap enclosure system. Each portion of the net is attached at the V-ring spring clip, eliminating the chance of limbs or ligaments getting caught and injured. In addition, this trampoline comes with a high quality safety enclosure net with a dual enclosure system. The dual closure consists of a zipper as well as latch clips, ensuring that jumpers don’t accidentally end up in a spot they shouldn’t (namely, outside of the trampoline net).

Adding to the above features, this trampoline has powder coated, rust-resistant, galvanized steel frames that provide a durable, long-lasting frame. We really love the design of this Skytric Trampoline and the way in which the powder coated frame leads to the top flex pole enclosure system. The angle of the poles provide for amazing stability and durability, and also allow the net to stand tall and straight.

Like Upper Bouncer Trampolines, this one has an easy assemble and disassemble feature. This means that the poles need no hardware and can therefore be taken apart and put back together to be stored during the winter or other harsh weather.

Best Trampoline Reviews Buyer’s Guide

[su_note note_color=”#ffffff” text_color=”#000″]

We realize we threw a ton of information at you in the above trampoline reviews. It wouldn’t be right if we ended our article there, so let’s jump into a buyer’s guide! The aim of this guide is to assist you in understanding what to look for when deciding on what trampoline is best for you and your family.

Safety

When it comes to the most important aspect of a trampoline, we don’t think there’s any dispute that safety comes in at number one. Unlike the trampolines of yesteryear, trampolines for sale today come with a number of different safety features and innovations that have been perfected over the years.

The first and arguably most important safety feature to be on the look-out for when purchasing a trampoline is a no-gap enclosure system. No-gap enclosure systems really did revolutionize trampolines, as they remove any risk of limbs being caught in the gaps around the edges of the jumping mat. This is accomplished by designing a trampoline where the enclosure net is brought directly to the edge of the jumping mat, keeping any gaps outside of jumping range.

Speaking of enclosure nets, they are also an extremely important safety feature to have on a trampoline. Enclosure nets are made to keep jumpers safely on the jumping mat and away from any sort of peril outside of the trampoline such as hard surfaces. In addition, enclosure nets make no-gap enclosure systems a reality; the two go hand in hand.

To finish the trifecta of trampoline safety, we have padding. When purchasing a trampoline, be sure to see if there is padding on the enclosure poles as well as around the jumping mat. While no-gap enclosure systems and enclosure nets are of great importance, they won’t stop the hard structural areas of a trampoline from potentially harming a user.

Padding on enclosure poles as well as around the jumping mat seal the deal when it comes to safety; this, coupled with a no-gap enclosure system and an enclosure net will greatly mitigate the risk of injury when enjoying your trampoline.

Quality and Durability

Purchasing a trampoline isn’t something that most will do on a whim. It’s a decision that takes a fair amount of thought, planning, and, well, money. While a trampoline isn’t an outrageously expensive purchase, it’s definitely a product that one hopes will stand the test of time. Because your trampoline will reside outdoors, it’s important to ensure it has what it takes to endure the sun, rain, wind and anything else Mother Nature decides to throw at it.

When it comes to quality and durability, galvanized steel has you covered. Galvanized steel is extremely strong as well as rust resistant; when deciding on a trampoline, look for a galvanized steel frame as well as steel, rust resistant springs.

Taking it even a step further, some trampoline brands have even started powder coating their trampoline frames. The process of powder coating creates a durable and high-end finish that provides even more durability than galvanized steel alone and, oh yea, looks really cool. Powder coated items withstand the toughest of conditions, meaning your investment will be standing for years to come.

While the structural integrity of your trampoline is extremely important, none of that will matter if your enclosure net and jumping mat start to rip and crack. When researching which trampoline to purchase, be sure to look for any emphasis a manufacturer or review puts on the quality of these two items. An example of this is Springfree’s tear-resistant, double UV protected enclosure net or their geo-textile jumping mat, which absorbs 30 times more impact than its competitors.

Pulling the trigger on a purchase like a trampoline can easily be a daunting experience, however, it doesn’t have to be. You’ll go far keeping the above in mind when looking for a trampoline that is made of high quality materials and is durable.

Features

If we had to guess, this is probably the section of the buyer’s guide that your kids would enjoy reading the most. While many trampoline features are practical, some are just plain awesome. Trampolines have changed and evolved in a lot of different ways, one in particular being the features that are included (or not included) with purchase.

We’ll start with the practical and work our way to the fun stuff. When deciding on a trampoline, keep in mind that while some include a ladder, many don’t. Some manufacturers have chosen to sell a ladder separately, while some don’t offer a ladder at all. If a ladder is an important feature for you and your family, be sure that the trampoline you’re looking at includes one with purchase, or that one can be purchased separately.

Although it’s rare, some trampolines, like the Zupapa Trampoline on our list, include a rain cover. Rain covers, as the name suggests, protects your trampoline in stormy weather, and can also protect it from the sun. Rain covers can also be purchased aftermarket.

Now that we’ve taken care of practicality we can discuss the fun features that trampolines have to offer (other than jumping endlessly, that is). We don’t know about you, but we don’t think there are many things more fun than playing basketball while getting a ridiculous amount of air. You may not be Michael Jordan, but having a basketball hoop on your trampoline will sure make you feel like you are. If you’re looking to have loads of fun slam-dunking and playing H.O.R.S.E, the Skywalker Trampoline we reviewed above has you covered.

Lastly, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention tgoma, a digital game system that comes with the purchase of a Springfree Trampoline. Tgoma comes with over 10 games and applications to exercise the body and mind.

Shape and Size

Like the backyards they’ll be placed in, trampolines come in all shapes and sizes. When looking at the plethora of trampolines out there, we understand how difficult it can be to find the perfect one for your family. One that’s not to small, or too large, and has a shape that complements your backyard.

While a round trampoline is usually what most people think of when they picture a trampoline, brands have come out with other exciting shapes meant to provide options and variety to soon-to-be trampoline owners. If you’re in the market for a round trampoline and have read the above reviews, you already know that we’d recommend the SkyBound Stratos Trampoline. Round trampolines are tried and true and there are a plethora of options available. However, if you’re looking for something different, Springfree offers both square and oval trampolines. In comparing square and oval trampolines to round ones, you may find that they have a bit more jumping space on the mat, however it’s not substantial. Finally, there’s the rectangular trampoline, meant for gymnasts or those looking to learn gymnastics. Rectangle trampolines have the highest bounce so inexperienced users should be very cautious when using one. If you’re in the market for a rectangular trampoline, the Skywalker 15ft Rectangle Trampoline above is your prime suspect.

Though the shape of a trampoline is important, its size holds equal value. A number of different factors come in to play when deciding the size of trampoline to purchase, such as how large your backyard is, the size of the users, as well as your budget, as larger trampolines tend to be more expensive. Trampolines come as small as 7.5 feet, and can be as large as 16 feet; although the range of options is great, we understand that it can also be overwhelming. If you zero in on the size of your space, users, as well as your budget, the right trampoline for your home is at arm’s length!

Price

Finally, we’ve made it to the tail end of our Best Trampoline Buyer’s Guide. Let’s face it, we’re all on some sort of budget which means that price is definitely a factor when it comes to deciding on what trampoline you’re going to purchase. Regardless, as this New York Time article states, your trampoline will most likely become the most fun item you purchase!

As you may have noticed if you checked out the prices of the above trampolines, the range varies greatly. In fact, some of the best bargain trampolines are in the couple-hundred dollar price range, while the most innovative and technologically advanced are thousands of dollars. Honestly, we’d be satisfied with any of the 10 trampolines on this list, as they all truly are fantastic products. However, we know it’s hard to make a decision with all that’s out there and with the huge variance in price.

Our advice to you is this: Sit down with your family and write down what the most important aspects of a trampoline are to you and your needs. You may write down items like a 300+ pound weight capacity, a basketball hoop, or an at least 14 foot jump space. Whatever you decide on, you can then read through the above reviews and decide on what trampoline fits your needs best; we’re sure you’ll find yourself a goldilocks trampoline!

Conclusion

If you made it this far into the article, we applaud you! You’re now a well-informed future trampoline owner with all of the tools and information needed to make the best buy for you and your family. We’ve firsthand seen the joy that comes from playing on a trampoline and inviting friends and extended family over to do the same. Many memories have been made while jumping on a trampoline and many more will be made in the years to come.

To recap, the first and most important thing to look out for when deciding on a trampoline is the safety features that it has to offer. No-gap enclosure systems, solid enclosure nets, and padding, lots and lots of padding, are three aspects that make up a safe trampoline. Next, you’ll want to research the quality and durability of the trampoline. Look for a galvanized steel frame or, even better, a galvanized, powder coated steel frame. Additionally, you’ll want to make sure that the trampoline you’re looking at has steel rust-resistant springs and a durable enclosure net and jumping mat that won’t rip or crack over time. Then, decide on the shape and size of the trampoline fits your family’s needs best. Remember, round trampolines are most common, oval and square trampolines are quite rare but offer a bit more jumping space, and rectangular trampolines offer a much higher bounce than other shapes and are mainly for gymnasts or those learning gymnastics. Finally, there really is a trampoline for every price point. Don’t be discouraged if your budget isn’t as much as you wish it was; we believe that you can and will find a trampoline that’s just right. Sadly, we’ve reached the very end of our article. We can’t thank you enough for using this resource and truly hope that we were able to assist you in deciding on a trampoline for your home.
