Cricket Travel Trailer Is Half Airstream, Half Vanagon … and All Awesome

In my seemingly endless quest for the perfect ultralight travel trailer, the funky little Cricket Trailer popped onto my radar.

Cricket Travel Trailer/RV

The photo above speaks for itself. It’s like the freakish love child of a classic Airstream RV and a VW Vanagon … if that love child got into a few minor car accidents. It’s somehow “beautifully ugly”.

The top of the heap “EVERYTHING” version includes:

  • Stainless steel sink with 2-burner cooktop
  • Electric, on demand hot water system
  • Folding couch
  • 3-way fridge
  • Multi-position, removable table
  • Handshower
  • Portable cassette toilet
  • Furnace with thermostat OR A/C
  • Folding v-berth with foam mattress
  • Shade awning

… all in an impressively compact 15′ package.

That’s the upside.

The downside: a stripped down, barebones version starts just shy of $10,000 USD. Starts there. Tricked out with all the essential accoutrements and that price quickly balloons to nearly $17K. It ain’t cheap, but in the world of decent travel trailers, it really isn’t all that expensive either. Plus, you’ll be giving even the Airstream RVers something that’ll turn their heads.
