We had an amazing trip to the Oregon coast with this Cricket! Ted was amazing in helping to get us on the road and communicated so effectively! Be careful- this little trailer will make you want to buy one of your own!!

Excellent experience from start to finish. Ted has equipped the trailer with everything we needed. Good communication, and easy pick up and drop off. The Cricket more than lived up to our expectations, and we fully recommend Ted and the Cricket!

Ted and the Taxa Cricket were fantastic, this was my first time using the service and while there were pain points with Outdoorsy in general, Ted was fantastic every step of the way, and the Taxa Cricket was a wonderful trailer for our four days at the beach. If you don’t already have trailer wiring for your vehicle go to Curtis trailers, and allow three weeks for an appointment, they’ll do a much better job than my personal experience with U-Haul. Also you’ll need a 7 pin RV connector, versus a basic 4 pin trailer connector, and you might need a brake booster. The trailer slept myself, my partner, and our eight and four-year-old in perfect comfort, although when it was just me and the kids I have a lot more room to stretch out on the bottom bunk. If you rent this trailer and go to a state park be prepared to talk to people because it’s still a fairly new item in the marketplace, people have questions, or they’re looking at one, etc. etc. I let more than one person look inside just so they could get a feel how the cricket looks when stuff is spread out everywhere.

The small heater was not enough for the winter but owner installing a new one.

We had the best time and Ted is super easy to work with. He was very thorough and knowledgeable with ins and outs of the TAXA. Pickup and drop off of the camper was completed in a timely manner. There were cooking amenities that was not listed in the description and that came in super helpful during the trip. We would love to rent from Ted again. Thanks Ted!

The Cricket was amazing and is a perfect long weekend trailer. Given its weight it was easy to trailer without killing my gas mileage. Ted was great at reviewing all the Ins and outs of the camper. Incredible experience and would recommend it to anyone looking to get away while still having some great creature comforts.
