Does anyone own or know someone who owns one of the Sky Dancer trampolines.  Just wondering about quality of product such as longevity and bounce.

We have one from Toyworld which we've had for around 6 and a bit years but springs are rusting and the safety padding has just about had it.  I asked Toyworld have ordered some new springs for me, but 2.5 months on and there is no sign of them and the staff are vague about delivery - apparently they are coming from Australia!

So I've decided to give up on the old one and get a new one.  I won't be getting one from Toyworld; problems obtaining parts, poor customer service and price - the same 14ft with net would be $750.  Looking on TradeMe there are a couple but this is the trampoline I'm thinking of getting which will be around $475 with delivery.  Seller has excellent feedback which is a good sign but I always prefer recommendations.

Any thoughts or feedback?

Thanks for listening

The OP mentioned trademe. Apparently PeterReader has some sort of issue with people mentioning trademe.

Either that or the AI is so advanced that it knew there would be puns galore because I mentioned trampolines!

We got a 14ft tramp from Kmart. Its great. Been out in the elements for a year now and no signs of rust. I think we paid around $280 for it. Really good value as it included the safety net - although we didn't bother putting the net up.

trampoline injury can be devastating ... the bounce isn't the important thing.
(you can break any bone - including the neck/back)

check the safety net works if you are flung by the tramp into it - will it stop injury or was it there as a fashion accessory?




Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

$injury can be devastating, better just nope away from everything to avoid them.

The number 1 fitness ones are good - I like how the nets sit tight and slightly concave. Many of my friends have one and we will be replacing our one with one of these closer to xmas. They often have half price sales.
