My kids are 6 and 4.  I am looking at a good quality trampoline as I've heard too many stories of tramps breaking after a year or two.

Is a 10ft tramp big enough to see kids into their teens (assuming of course they are still interested?)

We have the room for a 12ft, but its another $265!

That said I don't want to pay good money for a tramp that turns out to be well used but too small.

Any thoughts?

We have this Springfree trampoline and it will most definitely see DS until he is a teen (he is 5 in Feb).

We have a 10ft and I think it is a perfect size. I get on there and bounce and there is plenty of room for an adult. I actually bought mine from ebay an it is holding up well after 4 years of use. The jumping mat and poles are still in perfect condition. I just replace the blue pads and net every couple of years, because they wear out from exposure to sunlight - this happens to all trampolines regardless of brand, and they are relatively cheap to replace.
