8ft trampolines are perfect for small to medium size backyard or garden. Measure the area you are going to place the trampoline before you place your order. If you are buying a trampoline with a safety enclose you only need to have 2ft clearance area around the trampoline. If you are buying a trampoline without a safety enclosure (perhaps an inground trampoline) you will need to add an 8ft clearance area around the trampoline.
8ft trampolines are only meant to support 1 jumper at a time, the weight limit is around 175lbs. We all know rules are meant to be broken but keep the weight limit in mind when deciding if an 8ft trampoline is the right size for you.
Which is the Best 8ft Trampoline?
Skywalker 8 Feet Jump N Dunk Trampoline
Trampoline Size: 8 Feet x 21 inches (H)
Enclosure Height: 60.2 inches
Recommended ages: 6 years and over
Weight capacity: 175 lb
Basketball Hoop and Ball: Yes
The Skywalker 8 Feet Jump N’ Dunk is a great trampoline for younger kids. The enclosure is a patented, durable design which interlocks with the jump mat v-rings using a button hole feature, eliminating gaps. The frame itself is constructed with long lasting rust resistant 16 gauge galvanized steel. This trampoline is a good size for 2 small children to jump at one time or a big child to jump on their own.
FEATURES AND EXTRAS
The Skywalker 8 Feet Jump N’ Dunk comes with an enclosure net with UV protection and a basketball and hoop are also included, giving the kids plenty of opportunity for some slam dunk fun! The basketball hoop is made of a soft material to minimize any injury, and the ball is made of foam. The hook and loop part of the basketball hoop is designed to break away safely if a lot of force is applied. This reduces the risk of arms getting stuck while dunking. The basketball hoop attaches to the trampoline enclosure poles with rope and backboard straps.
Assembling the Skywalker 8 feet Jump N’ Dunk is usually pretty easy. It take two people between 60 mins and 90 mins to assemble. If one person is assembling the trampoline on their own it usually takes 2 hours to assemble. I also find it is easier to attach the trampoline matt while the top tube is on the ground, before the legs are attached. This allows you some leverage while stretching the springs into place. Then you can attach the legs to the top tube.
Assembly time: Approximately 1 hour 15 mins for 2 people.
This is a great trampoline for younger kids. It is a durable and safe trampoline that is good value for money. If you like the features of the Skywalker 8 feet Jump N’ Dunk but want something bigger, this trampoline also comes in 12 feet and 15 feet versions.
