4 Best Oval Trampolines to Buy This Year | Expert Picks 

Oval trampolines are one of the more uniquely shaped trampolines you can buy for your backyard. 

However, they are not as common as round or rectangle trampolines—which means there are not as many options to choose from. 

That’s why if you’re interested in an oval trampoline, you need to inform yourself about what’s out there so you can make an educated decision.  

Luckily for you, there’s no need to look any further than here! We have used our decades of experience as a trampoline innovator and manufacturer (and oval trampoline seller) to objectively compile a list of the best oval trampolines you can purchase this year. 

We have chosen four oval trampolines from three brands and ranked them from least expensive to most expensive. There will be a list of pros, cons, costs and a summary of who would be a fit for each trampoline.  

Since we’re honest and transparent in all our content, two of our Springfree Oval Trampolines will be on this list. We will go over why in more detail later on.

Top 4 Oval Trampolines to Buy This Year     

Let’s now get to the list! Remember, this list is based on pricing--We’re going from least expensive to most expensive. It is NOT ranked by quality. The intent is to give you the best options at each of the following price points: Cheap, medium, large and premium.  

With that context, here are the top oval trampolines of this year:   

  1. JumpKing Oval Trampoline
