Vuly trampoline or Cheap Kmart trampoline?
I know this has been done before but there may be some more updated opinions
Do you like your Vuly? Do you use the tent enclosure? IS it hard to put on/off?
My child wants a cubby but I like the idea of multi purpose things.
With a cheap trampoline how long have you had it? Any concerns?
I have considered Springfree but I have decided against it at this time.
Any opinions appreciated

Ive got a Vuly and to be honest its no better than the Action tramp we had before it - only difference is the service and that you can access half price replacements for sometime after the warranty runs out.
We have ours nearly two years and so far have replaced the netting and many ties that holdthe netting, also had to be sent a replacement mat as the one we got had many faults in it and I didnt feel safe using it.
Oh and the tent was replaced too, as it fell apart.
The frame seems better and so does the mat than the action or similar tramps, but the net was a dismal disapointment, so I woudl be prepared to replace that fairly soon or take it down every winter and keep it in shade for it to last. JMO anyway.

We got a trampoline from Allmart sports a few years ago. The net has died, the mats all feel apart, and now the springs are falling out. I fear it is a death trap and will have to be replaced. I wish we'd just bought the Springfree one in the first place

I'm now looking at an AlleyOOP tramp.
Warranty is: lifetime steel frame (galvanised, not powder coated)
Lifetime on the poles
Mat- 5 yrs
There is no zip on the net, which I like. The anchor kit looks better
But I'm not sure on size. As it looks like a much better quality and long lasting its a big jump to go up in size from 10ft to 12ft.

We bought a springfree last Christmas.
It is used every day by our children and the neighbourhood children.
It looks like it just came out of the box.
My only disappointment is we didn't buy the next size up! We are considering it.
Our neighbours who bought standard cheapie tramps had them pretty much fall apart after two years. The spring protectors and the mesh surrounds went first. The rust started next and the mats are all going too. Their kids don't use them anymore.

We have a 14 foot one we bought from ebay (Jumparoo??), this Christmas will be its 7th.
A tree fell on it in a storm so we replaced the net, we also replaced the spring protectors as they were getting pretty shabby. The mat and frame are still in excellent condition and it has had heavy use over its life.
