Best 12-Foot Trampoline With Basketball Hoop: Skywalker Trampolines 12 ft. Jump N’ Dunk

When we surveyed the readers of our parenting books for their favorite trampolines, one name came up time and time again: Skywalker.

No, not the Jedi. Skywalker is a trampoline company that has the right balance of quality and affordability when it comes to trampolines.

Example: Skywalker’s 12′ Jump N’ Dunk. It is an excellent trampoline that adds a basketball hoop for additional fun.

This 96 spring trampoline has tightly woven netting and foam-padded poles.

What We Liked

• Easy to assemble. It takes about an hour and half from start to finish.

• Springs are outside netting and covered with pad.

• Basketball hoop made with soft fabric and hook/loop breakaway rim.

• Affordable.

• 200 lb. weight limit.

What Needs Work

• Not great if you have teens. With a 200 lb. weight limit, this probably isn’t the best bet for teens. You might want a bigger size with a higher weight limit.

• Check for missing parts when the trampoline arrives. This is true for any trampoline, of course—sometimes pieces are missing.

Best 8-Foot Trampoline With Basketball Hoop: Skywalker Trampolines 8-foot Jump N’ Dunk

This trampoline has the same pros and cons as the Skywalker trampoline recommended above—the only difference is this one is eight feet across. It’s better for smaller kids. One kiddo or two smaller kids can jump at time. Weight limit: 175 lbs.
