Kangaroo Hoppers 15ft Round Trampoline
From a swath of affordable 15ft trampolines it can be difficult to pick the models that are worth your while. One of the prospective trampolines that is good enough is the Kangaroo Hoppers 15ft. trampoline. If you’re looking for a solid trampoline that won’t break the bank, read on.
First of all, you can get this trampoline in a variety of colors. Blue, pink, green, orange, apple green… you name it. Choose wisely, as once you get it there’s really no way of customizing it.
The trampoline itself is huge; almost 9 feet tall, so double-check if you’ve got enough space in the yard. There are eight enclosure poles keeping the net taut and the jumpers protected. And protected they are. The mesh is good and the springs are situated outside the trampoline. Extra clamps keep the netting closed even if the zippered opening somehow fails you.
Kangaroo Hoppers have done an incredible job weatherproofing this trampoline. The mat is UV-protected and the metal parts are all galvanized and coated; they won’t rust. The bounce is surprisingly good, courtesy of 90 corrosion-free springs. A total of 250 lbs. is enough capacity for regular use, although it is on the low side. You also get a free L-shaped ladder for easier entry. The padding could be better and looks like it could wear out soon.
There’s nothing to be unpleasantly surprised, except the customer support. It seems to be difficult to reach them via the contact form and e-mail, so it’s the safest to purchase it via Amazon, where the claims can be processed via the seller. However, other have had stellar experience with the customer support, so ours could just be a fluke.
The instruction booklet could be clearer and the assembly requires some strength, but at least you don’t need any extra tools. You do need someone else to help you, though. This trampoline is one of the most-budget friendly 15 ft. trampolines, so if you really want one, there’s no need to choose a smaller one, as this will be perfectly adequate, but you should be aware of its limitations.
