Our Cricket Trailer is a Nasa-inspired base camp for outdoor fun, sleeping 2 adults & 2 children. Lightweight and rugged, it's towable by most 4-cylinder engines (for example, the Subaru Outback). Smart design with lots of nifty storage room, integrated plumbing & electrical system promise fun days off-the-grid. Our Cricket offers a luxurious version of tent camping - combining the convenience, privacy, and shelter of an RV with the outdoor feeling of a light tent. The interior measures up to 6.4' high and 6.3' wide. There are five swing windows with mesh against bugs and shades against the sun, and three zip-mesh windows. An easy-push handle lifts and closes the roof in seconds. The sides, roof and door are made of aluminum composite panels. The orange triangular shaped sides are make of water repellent canvas and let in a lot of light. There is plenty of storage space under the v-berth bed and kitchen sink. The Cricket connects to a standard 2″ ball hitch, with a 7-pin plug (4-pin adapter). We were able to go 8 days straight without refilling the water tank (on canny usage: cleaning dishes and for washing hands; used the coin showers provided by the park); only the solar panel was connected to keep the battery charged. That way it's possible to book regular tent campsite. No hook-up needed (yet possible). The manufacturer estimates that the water tank and battery last up to 3 days under normal usage. The two kids berths hanging from the ceiling can be folded up when not in use (they provide more storage) and can hold up to 130lb each. Our two toddlers sleep there. The double bed is ideal for people up to 6 feet (tested and works fine up to 6.2') and very wide. *** House Rules: You'll need a legal spot to camp (wilderness permit, Harvest Hosts, campground reservation, etc.) No usage with outdoor conditions around or below freezing point (the plumbing is not insulated and will break!)

What's included

Mattress topper with cover. Basic kitchen equipment for 4.
Optional: Adult/kids camping chairs, camping charcoal grill, solar lights, outdoor games, portable space heater.
Longer trips: Drinking water hose and filter. Power cable. Addon: 100w Solar Panel

Recommendations

We took it all all the way from Olympia National Park down to Death Valley – snow to burning heat. The kids loved it.
For super hot days: The windows with bug screens open wide for circulation.
For super cold days: For 2 people the roof can be popped down (sides and windows are double-pane, but the popup is tent). With 4 people a space heater is nice for changing but we didn't need it during the night.

Other things to note

The kids berth work great from 3 to 10y old and there is little risk for the lil' ones to roll out, but they will need to go up and down.

We're a young family of four. We call the SF bay area our home since 2011 and consider ourselves global citizens. My husband and I've lived in Spain and Switzerland before moving to the US. We love the outdoors and can't get enough of all the places one can reach from the Bay Area - and it's wonderful to see this world through the young eyes of our girls!

Great outdoorsy experience renting the Cricket for a 5 day adventure to Mt Lassen NP. The vehicle was exactly as it was described and the hosts were exceptionally accommodating to make our trip so memorable. They rent a great Outdoorsy vehicle :-)

Such a great trailer and an even better family to work with! They've thought through everything to make a camping trip accessible/comfortable whether you're an experienced camper or a newbie. Tons of gear comes stores in the trailer so you really just need to pick food and your clothes and can set out on an adventure.
