My parents bought theirs from Atlantic Trampolines about five years ago. It's a 14ft one and has taken some rough treatment from our kids, my brothers children (and their friends) and it still looks good. I know my father has bought some parts for it recently like replacing the net which got torn in the wind. When we moved and had a larger garden last year we bought ours from them too and we are really pleased with it. The man on the phone was really helpful too and it came on the day we wanted it. They also have some interesting accessories like a TENT (!!) to go on the trampoline and a sort of roof thing. We got a 12ft one and have sunk it in the ground. It wasn't the cheapest one but given that my parents one has survived in good condition for so long we thought it was worth it. I'd agree that getting a large size one is good if you have the space.
We have a TP one - the trampoline is great but the particular type of net ours came with is shit. The design was never going to work - should have got a net elsewhere. It'll need replaced after the winter, just the net, trampoline is great.
atlantic trampolines is where we got ours from, they also have lots of spares for when needed in the future (we got a new jump mat this summer) and buy as big as you can afford/fit in the space you have. we have a 14ft one-its very handy to lie on in the summer to get a tan when the kids are doing other things (or fall asleep on which i do on a saturday afternoon after work when its hot)
We've decided to get the dc's a deathtrap trampoline for Christmas. I have to admit to being totally clueless, so was hoping for some recommendations for makes or good websites. There seem to be so many and I don't know where to start so have just ignored it and am now in panic mode!
Ideally, we'd like a big one with a net. Told you I'm clueless. Any ideas? (Pretty please.)
