I am putting a new tramp on and am not sure how tight to pull it. Right now I think it's too tight and seems to be bending my sidebars too much. Can anyone give me any "rules of thumb" on the proper tension of a new tramp? If it matters, my tramp is solid vinyl.

Any help will be appreciated.

It is correct for the sidebars on a 14 or 16 to bow inward when the trampoline if tensioned properly. Tight is good, but be sure you don't pull out a grommet when tensioning.
