Lightweight and rugged, our 2021 Taxa Cricket is the perfect blend of sophisticated design and purpose that’s towable by many four-cylinder engines - Subaru for the win! With sleeping room for two adults and two children, Taxa’s Nasa-inspired design features integrated plumbing and electrical systems, air conditioning, gas stove, sink and single-zone Dometic refrigerator/freezer making this perfect for on or off-grid camping.

The Truma propane heater/furnace keeps you (and your water) toasty warm in freezing temperatures - even with the roof popped.

Park it at a tent site! Two batteries mean you can run the ceiling fan, water pump, heater/hot water and charge USB electronics without being plugged in for a few days.

The kids berths have a max weight capacity of 130 lbs and about 5’2” length.

Stanley stainless steel sauce pans and skillet, cups, SnowPeak stainless plates and tableware for four provided.

There’s an outdoor shower for you, your pooch and your kids.

Foam mattress topper available on request.

Full 15 gallon water tank and a 30 minute walkthrough at the time of pick-up.

The Cricket weighs 1800 lbs dry, and takes a 2'' ball hitch and a 7-pin round trailer connector.

Optimal measurement from the ground to the top of the 2” ball on your tow vehicle is ≈ 20”.

Delivery: Don't have a tow vehicle? Don’t feel like towing? We can deliver within a 60 mile radius of Raleigh for a fee (generally $1.50/mile both ways). Falls Lake and Jordan Lake deliveries are $150-$200 total. Free delivery to Umstead State Park.

- When booking, send me a message and let me know where you're traveling for your trip and the make and model of your vehicle so we can be sure you’re set to tow the Cricket.

Let us know what questions you have!

- Pickup and Drop off is at 3PM unless you add on early pickup (9AM) or late drop-off (5PM) for a fee at checkout.

Pets allowed upon approval.

Recommendations

We love state parks.

Camping at Grayson Highlands State Park in southwestern, VA and being near Mount Rodgers and the wild ponies there is breathtaking.

Hanging Rock State Park has it all: hiking, vistas, history, and mountain bike trails.

We love to canoe and camp at Merchant's Millpond State Park in eastern NC.

Our favorite quick getaway is Raven Rock State Park, less than an hour from Raleigh. Falls Lake and Jordan Lake are great last minute camping options close to the Triangle.

Check out Hipcamp.com as well. :)

One of the best uses for the Cricket is camping off grid. We love Davidson River Campground in Pisgah National Forest.

Other things to note

The fridge can not get wet/sandy. Please keep it out of the rain and away from sand.
Always level the trailer with the hitch crank. The four stabilizers on the vehicle are intended to provide support for the leveled trailer.
Lock the trailer at the hitch if you're going to drive away from it.
Always lock the doors when the trailer is being towed.
No smoking.

Have a question?Get answers directly from the owner

Q.Are there any special tricks and tips that would help with operating the RV easily?
A.
You need a 2'' ball hitch positioned approximately 20'' (from the ground to the top of the ball) off the ground and a 7-pin (round) connection to plug the trailer into your tow vehicle.

Q.How to you level the camper?
A.
Leveling the camper is achieved by turning the crank on the tongue of the trailer until the trailer is level front to back. We have small level inside the camper for you to use. We like to position it on the kitchen counter to get a good sense of levelness. The stabilizers/landing gear are only used to reduce the amount of side to side sway after the camper has been leveled front to back.

Q.Can you deliver?
A.
Yes. We will deliver the travel trailer for a rate of $1.50/mile (round trips). Locally, we typically charge $150 - $200 for delivery, set up, walk-through and pick up, to Jordan Lake and Falls Lake campgrounds.
