Cricket Trailer

Interesting trailer, according to their website: "1300lbs represents an unloaded Cricket with a kitchen and bed"

Need to go through build process to determine price as their are lots of options. They start at $14,330!

There is an E in one of the pics in their site.

That atrocity is the closest thing I've seen to a trash can on wheels. It is interesting as an Aztek, from GM. and they probably should fire the chief designer as well.

+1. When did $14K become exceptable for a tent on wheels.

I love these Crickets... but can I afford one? No doubt it's expensive - but there really is nothing else like it available... You are definitely paying for the design (NASA Engineer) and high-tech materials (Aluminum space frame with composite panels) that went into this thing. They are built to last for years....


Thing is, for most people who camp a couple times a year - a plain old tent works fine... lol Now, if I decided to travel across the country (Kayaking or Biking) for a few months and camping along the way - then something like this would be ideal... plus you can sell it when you're done...

14grand does buy one hell of a used trailer or RV though....

We bought one and we love it!

We drove from Houston, TX to Anchorage, AK with our Cricket and it made the trip very comfortable. We used it in the rain and the snow, hot temps and cold. it has the amenities we could not find in any other smaller travel trailer.

While I disagree with ugly comments (beauty is in the eye of the beholder/owner) I will say that people either love the looks or hate it. It works for us and that's all that matters.

wjdunham, do you tow the Cricket with an Element? (I assume so, but just want to be sure).

Also, I find it more than a bit amusing that some Honda Element owners are calling this trailer ugly, given that we've all endured similar comments from non-E owners!
