    I don't have a trampoline coup but I do use the black thingy as a partial tarp cover (for shade) for my dog kennel [​IMG]

    I wanted to try making a trampoline coop, but DH gave me stink-eye and gave the trampoline away. Oh well....... now if he had thought of it first.....it probably would have been a great idea! [​IMG]

    Seems like a plausible idea, if a little back breaking to get around under. Seems tougher than PVC, on the other hand, although how to make it water tight, I wonder?

    I really wanted it as a moveable tractor, not a permanent 24/7 coop. It would have taken 2 of us to move it when needed. But it takes 2 of us to move the tractor he built last year. [​IMG]
