This trampoline was a great value. Other comparable items on different web sites were being sold for a much higher price. The stabilizer bar is great for novice users or people who don't trust their balance. I would not get one without the bar. Some companies charge more for it as an add-on but this one came with the bar. The usable area is much smaller than the 40" size but the usable area is plenty big to bounce on. the "carrying bag" will never get used, and is just a nylon tote. Unless you are taking the trampoline apart and carrying it around you will not need it. Mine is set up and never moves. Assembly takes just a few minutes. It does NOT come with a CD of any exercise instructions or suggestions. Don't know how much weight it is intended to support but I weigh just over 200lbs and it is just fine. It is a lot of fun and really gets you moving!
