Our trampoline is 6 years old. It is still in good condition, but the enclosure net had become worn and dry rotted and was ripped and falling down. We made the decision to take the net down completely, as it was only providing a false sense of security. I will eventually look into replacing the net, but it may be hard to locate one for a trampoline that is over 6 years old. Plus, a new net can be quite costly. It may be more cost effective to purchase a trampoline/net combo. And, I am not sure at this age and stage of my children's lives that I want to be replacing a yard toy. So, for now we are net-less and safety-less, at least until Spring. I have stressed the importance of the "new" trampoline rules and I can only hope and pray that being net-less does not result in any broken bones.
