Whats the typical life of a classic tramp? Mine is a 2012, One of the drink holder parts is separating from the rest. Would hate for a breaking-down tramp to dump me in the lake. Yep, I know, it all depends on use, so mine has set outside in the sun each year in the Pacific NW, rained on in the off season, but lots of summer sun. I never break it down for transport, specially in the summer, we live on the lake where we sail.

Thinking of swapping out to a club tramp... it has the tracks, anything else I need to know?

Whats the material used for the club tramp?

That is why we heat weld instead of stitch trampolines. Stitching fails due to UV damage.

The tramps last for decades sometimes. The can holders can be re-stitched (only thing that is stitched).
