Zupapa TUV Approved Trampoline + Accesories
The Zupapa 15ft has for a long time now been among our top recommendations for the best big trampolines for families. Late 2018, this German manufacturer gave the tramp an upgrade on the quality of construction that consequently made it much stronger and more stable as its high weight limit depicts.
The first thing that you want to look at when buying a big trampoline is the maximum weight limit that it can hold- and that’s where the Zupapa 15ft trampoline outshines most of its competitors within its price range.
This trampoline has been engineered to accommodate weights of up to 375 pounds. Mind you, most trampolines of its size including those from renowned brands max out at 250 pounds which is very limiting for most adults.
The high weight limit and the massive jumping surface is a really incredible combination more so if you have energetic teens in the house, and if you are looking for a big trampoline for gymnastics.
The Zupapa 15ft also performs well in the safety department thanks to polyethylene enclosure with no-gap mat design, and w-shaped legs with caps to prevent it from digging into the ground.
Without forgetting, this is the only model in our collection of the best 14 and 15ft trampolines that includes virtually all the necessary accessories that your new tramp requires in the package. You’ll get a ladder, a rain cover, 6 wind stakes, 2 T-hooks, and 2 pairs of gloves.
- A lot of freebies including a ladder, wind stakes, and rain cover
- Great price
- Very high weight limit
- Good bounce
- Instruction manual isn’t so clear
Skywalker Rectangle Trampoline
Anyone looking for a 14ft or 15ft trampoline is definitely in need of a play tool with lots of fun- and this Skywalker 15-foot rectangle trampoline has been made for just that.
Rectangular trampolines always have the upper hand in terms of bounce compared to their round alternative. But the number of the springs and their size matters a big deal too. Skywalker understands this very well and has blessed this model with 80 7-inch springs so it creates a really good bounce for budding gymnasts.
This 15 foot trampoline boasts a total jumping surface of 78’’ by 150’’ which is more than enough whether your kids will be doing back handsprings, backflips or other tricks. In addition, it boasts a really strong and sturdy frame and legs to ensure optimum stability in the most intense trampoline workouts.
On matters safety, this Skywalker trampoline 15ft has a high-quality polyethylene net that has been tightly woven so it won’t catch small fingers and toes. This enclosure also has a dual zipper plus a latch clip closure system and attaches directly to the mat for added safety.
- High-quality frame, net, and mat construction
- Feels very stable
- Easy to set up
- 250-lbs weight limits most adults
Summit Rectangle Trampoline
The Summit 14-foot rectangle trampoline by Skywalker Trampolines is pretty much similar to the model above. The major difference, however, is its jungle green spring cover which is a huge relief from the blue pads that most trampolines come with.
A feature of this trampoline that most of its past users tend to highlight the most is its bounce. The Summit 14ft Rectangle trampoline is fitted with a set of 80 7-inch springs. However, unlike the 15ft model above, this one has another set of 4 5.5’’ springs made of rust-resistant galvanized steel to add more bounce to the already bouncy tramp.
The general construction quality is top-notch too considering the 19 gauge and 16 gauge galvanized steel that has been used for the frame and legs respectively.
The only slight issue that we have against the Skywalker Trampoline 14’ is its 200-pound weight limit. Even with its high-end general construction, its low weight limit means that it’s ideal for kids only. Actually, it is recommended for 8-12 kids although older teens can have a ride too.
- Premier construction materials
- Looks great
- Easy to follow guide makes assembly a breeze
- Seemingly durable
- Low weight capacity
Skywalker 15-feet Square Trampoline
Albeit not so popular, square trampolines are slowly but steadily taking their rightful place in the market. These trampolines sit between round and rectangle trampolines in terms of bounce and safety and they are also not as expensive as the latter.
The Skywalker Trampoline 15ft Square trampoline is amongst the best in this category- and we know why.
The most eye-catching feature of this trampoline is the quality of its entire rig (frame, legs, and enclosure net posts).
The frame and legs are made from 16 gauge rust-resistant galvanized steel. This frame is 0.06 inches (1.5mm) thick and has a diameter of 2.4 inches (currently the widest on the market). These dimensions coupled with the welded t-socket that Skywalker tramps are known for makes this model amazingly sturdy. We also expect it to last quite a long time with proper use.
Safety is something that Skywalker takes very seriously and it’s easily visible with this 15-foot trampoline with net. In addition to the sturdy and stable rig, this tramp’s net attaches to the mat using v-rings to eliminate all gaps.
The high-quality polyethylene net has also been tightly woven so it won’t trap little fingers and the net support poles are padded to prevent injuries.
- Premium quality construction
- Seems durable
- Good and safe amount of bounce
- 250-pound weight capacity limits most adults
Merax Round Trampoline
The best 14ft trampolines are all about fun- and we bet nothing brings out the real enjoyment of these playthings than throwing in a basketball hoop. But the Merax has a lot more in line for you.
The first thing that attracted us to this tramp was its high maximum weight capacity. With the ability to support up to 330 pounds, the Merax is a great tramp for adults who don’t want to be left out in the fun.
This trampoline 14 foot with enclosure and basketball hoop is engineered from heavy-gauge steel that has been hot-dip galvanized to prevent rusting. You’ll really appreciate this if you live in humid and wet regions. The UV-treated mat and net, on the other hand, means that the tramp will pull out nicely throughout the year.
The Merax is not the bounciest trampoline in the market debit to the 72 springs that it uses. But it makes up for that with a firmly attached basketball hoop and a ladder to add to its safety department.
- Comes with a firmly attached basketball hoop
- High weight limit accommodates most adults too
- Very sturdy
- Net requires tightening regularly
Beast Trampoline 14-feet Round
The Beast is aptly named so! It’s huge, strong, and sturdy and just as its name suggests, it has NO WEIGHT LIMIT. So if you are a big guy who can’t seem to get a tramp that can accommodate your weight, this one might.
Truth be told, this trampoline has a really striking and eye-catching design. So, although its price is a little bit on the higher end of the price spectrum compared to others here, you might still want to consider it if you are looking for the best 14 foot trampoline with net that won’t be an eyesore on your backyard.
The construction quality that this trampoline boasts does not betray the ‘beast’ design logo on the enclosure and spring pad. The frame, leg, and enclosure support poles are made of galvanized steel with a diameter of 1.9 inches and a thickness of 0.07 inches.
Another important construction detail that we really appreciate here is that the frame and enclosure poles connect using T-sockets. This means that there are no welds to break and the t-sockets also eliminate all risks of structural twisting even with the heaviest jumper onboard.
Mind you, the Beast 14ft trampoline does not compromise bounce for a high weight limit. This model is fitted with 96 8.5-inch springs that leave most of its competitors jealous.
- No weight limit
- Great design
- Very strong and stable
- Lots of bounce
By now, you must have realized that trampolines come in a range of sizes. In case you didn’t know, the shape of the trampoline has a say on almost all everything that matters when buying a trampoline. Here is a low-down of how different trampoline perform in regard to their size;
- Round– they are relatively affordable and easily available. This shape is said to make the tramp a little bit safer in that its bounce isn’t as powerful as that of a rectangular and square tramp. Again, its springs work together to pull the jumper towards the center and, therefore, away from the hard frame. The only twist to them is that they are a tad hard to place near corners and obstacles.
- Rectangle– they make the best trampolines gymnastics and professionals thanks to their massive jumping surface. Importantly, their springs work independently to give you the best bounce. A 15 foot trampoline will also be easy to place where a round model of the same size wouldn’t. Their catch? Price.
- Square– these models offer the bounce of rectangle trampolines but at a safer level. These models are also much easier to place than round tramps and don’t consume a lot of space horizontally compared to a rectangle.
The best 14ft and 15ft trampolines with enclosure will cost you handsomely. As such, it’s important that you ensure that you are getting good value for your money. And this runs down to the quality of the materials used right from the frame and legs to the mat and net.
It’s undeniable that trampolines are a leading cause of injuries at present. Life is also lost at times. The good news, however, is that most manufacturers have kept the necessary measures in place to avert this issue. They include quality springs with good padding, a strong enclosure net with hard-to-forget doorway, stable frame and legs, and padded enclosure support poles among others.
Think of the weight limit too and remember to double check the specs sheet to ensure that your target model will accommodate the weight of the intended jumpers. Although most of the best 14-foot and 15-foot trampolines are marketed as the best for adults, there are some that will withstand utmost 250 pounds of weight only thereby making them ideal for kids and teens and not so safe for most adults.
It would take you a couple of weeks to compare all the trampolines in the market, but narrow down to the best 14ft and 15ft trampolines and it becomes a breeze. All you need to do now is to consider the model that meets your requirements in terms of weight limit and budget. Most looking for a large trampoline is probably hunting for a model that will accommodate adults too.
