Summer is right around the corner, and what better way to enjoy the great outdoors than with your very own rectangle trampoline? Rectangular trampolines are great for larger groups of people, because they usually have more surface area for bouncing.
On top of that, because of the frame-to-mat ratio, a rectangle trampoline will often offer a better bounce than a round trampoline, especially when there are multiple people jumping at the same time. So, if you have more than one kid, a rectangular trampoline will ensure everyone has a good time!
Here’s our handy buying guide with everything you need to know to pick the rectangle trampoline for your needs. The following are our picks for the six best rectangular trampolines (with enclosures) that you can buy online right now. Let’s take a look…
This rectangular trampoline by Skywalker is one of the affordable trampolines. It’s 9 by 15 foot in length, with a surface area of 106 square ft. It can hold up to 250 lbs which is one of the highest weight capacities for a trampoline of this size.
The Skywalker trampoline has a sturdy enclosure with dual zipper, and a thick pad which is pretty cushy and UV protected to avoid peeling under the sun, something which seems to be a common problem if you keep your trampoline out year-round.
The ACON Trampoline is another great rectangle trampoline. It’s 10 by 17 feet, and is the first trampoline that doesn’t have a reported weight capacity. That’s because the company says it can hold kids and adults of all sizes, without any issues—meaning you’ll run out of space to fit people in the enclosure before you have to worry about weight. Great!
The frame and spring are heavy duty galvanized steel, so it won’t rust even if left outside over the years. It’s got a thick enclosure and spring pads, but what I really love is that ACON backs all the components with a part replacement program.
This rectangular trampoline by Upper Bounce is 9 by 14 square feet, and is one of the easiest trampolines to put together. It has a 500 lbs capacity, so you’ve got plenty of room for adults and kids to play.
The frame is made from heavy duty black coated steel, and the springs are rust free to withstand the elements. The enclosure has a dual zipper system for added safety, and the the mats are made from high quality foam. Overall, this rectangular trampoline is a great choice for larger families, because it’s got room for everyone to play.
This trampoline by JumpSport is 10 feet by 17 feet, with plenty of room for bouncing around! It has a max weight capacity of 225 lbs which is not a lot for its size, but it’s definitely enough for kids to play in.
The frame is made from old rolled steel, and the high quality enclosure has an easy overlapping doorway so that you never have to worry about zipping it open or closed.
While some of the features of this trampoline are not quite up to the level of the ACON Air 16, the bounce offered by the JumpSport is the best we’ve seen. On top of that, this rectangular trampoline by JumpSport is from backed by a 10 year warranty, which is great considering its price.
This trampoline by AlleyOOP is one of the biggest around, with 10 feet by 17 feet of space to jump. It’s got a 295 weight limit for a single jumper, and a high quality steel frame that is backed by a lifetime warranty.
The size, layout of the frame and quality of the springs make this a great trampoline if you have a large family.
The enclosure has a overlapping doorway so that you never have to forget to open and close it for added safety. This AlleyOOP rectangular trampoline has one of the best warranties of any brand, and since it’s a family owned company their customer service is great!
This rectangular trampoline by Skywalker is slightly smaller than the other version, measuring 8 feet by 14 feet. It has a weight capacity of 200lbs, and like its sibling, it’s made from rust resistant galvanized steel.
This Skywalker trampoline has an enclosure net with a dual zipper and latch clip closure system for added safety. It is also one of the few rectangle trampolines which has no gaps near the springs, something which makes it safer. If you’re a parent that worries easily, this will definitely buy you a little extra peace of mind (also, don’t go look on YouTube for examples of what could happen with exposed edges – trust me).
Final Thoughts- Which Is The Best Rectangle Trampoline?
There are a few things to consider when choosing the best rectangular trampoline for you and your family. The first and most important factor for most people is price. There are several quality options under 1,000 dollars, however the more expensive trampolines have more durable components and better warranties.
The second most important factor is the size and weight capacity. If you’ve got a large family or jump with adults, then you need to get the largest weight capacity you can afford. The ACON rectangular trampoline is the best choice for most buyers, because it strikes a great balance between price, size and “quality of the bounce”. This is the trampoline I have kept for myself and, one year in, it’s still working perfectly. It’s also holding up extremely well to the weather (which has been pretty crazy this past year).
