Simple Sheet Tent

This is the most classic and easiest way to spend a night on a trampoline.

  • First, find a sheet that exceeds the diameter of the trampoline and drape it over the top of the trampoline.
  • After that, you can use clothespins or regular clips to secure the sheet to the trampoline frame to prevent it from slipping off.
  • Finally, use ropes to tie around the outside edges of the trampoline and attach them to the corners of the sheet, providing extra stability for the tent. While also preventing the sheet from blowing away in the wind.
