Soo I was in your shoes last year and bought a trampoline off of craigslist for 50 bucks. 20 min after getting it set up I was already on the way to the hospital due to a spring ripping out of the mat and hitting me in the face/mouth. Ended up chipping one tooth and completely knocking out another. Oh and I had like 6 stiched in my lip. So be careful!!! <BR> <BR>(Message edited by ourufnek on August 19, 2009)

I have bought and sold over 10 tramps off craigslist and finally found the best one I have ever had. Look for between 12-16 ft diameter is good. Alot of the newer cheaper ones have tiny 5" springs and those suck, look for 7"+ inch springs. There is a huge difference in bounce from 5" to 8" which I think is what mine are now.

I bought one off Craigslist a few years ago and it is great. If you go that route, make sure it is set up when you go look at it. You will be able to tell if there are any rips in the mat and if all the springs are in good condition.

+1 on craigslist. Just bought one for $50. 12 footer in good shape. 15' would be nice but 12 does the job

Ask some of your friends, I asked around and got one for free..
