Default TRAMPOLINES

Hi everyone
I know this sounds a silly question but are trampolines over here made from a different material than the ones in australia because of the hot temperatures or is the one we have got ok to take with us.
Thanks in advance for any info.
Cheers
Si

Taking ours also.

What else are we adults going to do after a bottle or 2 of wine when the children have gone to bed??

I think the worse that can happen is the sun bleeches the colour a bit, and maybe the elastic disintergrates after a shorter while.

Something to consider.....

If you are going into a rental be careful of where you put yours as it may stop the grass from growing underneath and stop your bond winging its way back to you once you leave!!!

Probably made of the same materials. Good point made by Sarah too......


Oh and be careful! We've got rid of ours now after 2 broken arms in under a year :0(
......our own fault as the zip had broken(2nd incident) and we'd long let the one at a time rule slip(1st incident)




We might be getting another for Christmas as many hours of fun were had...but this time being extra careful *sigh*

Smile Re: TRAMPOLINES

One other thing you all may like to consider is that the average suburban Australian garden is so small that there may not be room for a trampoline!!!

Ours is like that in our rental, and we have seen many many others too.

They would be built out of the same materials, probably all built in the same factory in China.

Think it would be OK but you may have to pay for special cleaning as they are 'outside' items.

oldhampom is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: TRAMPOLINES

Brought ours out here, no problems with customs even though it's not in great condition.
We're in a rental at the moment, but keep moving it around the garden
