Trampoline tent covers offer a whole new experience to your trampoline, while also adding some extra protection from the weather.
This is a great option to keep the kids out of the sun, but still outside and active. It is also great for backyard camp outs and other activities.
Transform the trampoline into a fort in a matter of minutes with these unique trampoline tent covers.
Transform Your Trampoline Into a Camping Tent
Trampolines provide a super comfortable sleeping surface that is raised up off the ground, making it the perfect base to your backyard camping. Add one of the trampoline tents below or build one yourself to expand the use of your trampoline. Just as when kids are jumping, remember there is a weight limit on the springs. You do not want to exceed the weight limit and damage the trampoline if there are lots of kids hanging out.
DIY Trampoline Tent Ideas
There are many ways to accomplish a makeshift trampoline tent. These are two ways we used to make forts as kids. Check out these DIY trampoline tents!
Line and tarp (shelter)
This is a classic shelter method that is used by people all around the world. You will need a few trees or support poles that are sturdy and a bit taller than the trampolines enclosure if it has one. Tie the rope on the two supports at the desired peak height of the tent so that it hangs directly over the trampoline. Then drape a tarp or large blanket over the rope to make a triangle shaped shelter over the trampoline. Secure the tarp with some anchors and you have an instant trampoline shelter.
You will need either an enclosure with poles or some sort of makeshift support system to put the parachute on top of. Drape the parachute over the top of the trampoline and secure the handles to the trampoline’s enclosure support poles. This is very basic, easy to setup and remove, and provides a protective cover if the trampoline is in direct sunlight.
