Mini-Trampolines and Rebounders

I am interested in getting a mini-trampoline (sometimes called a rebounder) and when i google search, they come up anywhere from $50 - $250. I was wondering if anyone could help me - in your experience what is a good brand name and what are some qualities to look for? how much did you spend, did you wish you spent more? TIA

I decided to go with a gym quality rebounder and chose ReboundAir. I bought their half fold model and I think it was about $250 including taxes and shipping. I LOVE it and highly recommend them. Good luck and happy jumping.

Thank you - and there's a sale that ends today! I'm just wondering what the difference is between a "gym quality" and the sporting good store quality. Better bounce? More weight supported?

and I have to say, I know nothing about them, but if you don't get your answer soon, and you want to catch that sale, perhaps it is a good question to ask the sales rep of the company. Take it with a grain of salt perhaps, but they should really know the selling points of their own product, and why they think it is the best. Most sales people really want happy customers, and when I worked in retail, I did try to make the customer informed as to the pros and cons of my products.

Happy bouncing

I decided to go with ReboundAir on the recommendation of Denise Traver, a respected former Grand Canyon Park Ranger. (her link is below) I wanted to buy a "gym quality" rebounder because I guessed it would be better made, built to last and I was willing to buy a quality piece of exercise equipment. I weigh over 200 lbs and I feel perfectly comfortable on it and the springs don't squeak.

That's just my 2 cents.
