Pet friendly

Lightweight and rugged, our brand new Taxa Cricket is designed for an optimal camping experience! With sleeping room for two adults and two children, Taxa's Nasa-inspired design features integrated plumbing and electrical systems, propane heater, gas stove, sink (with hot water!) and a single-zone refrigerator/freezer. It's a perfect choice for on or off-grid camping.

The canvas tent pops up and down with ease affording superior cross-ventilation and natural light for that 'bring the outside in' experience. The large exterior awning gives you a shaded 'front porch' area to hang out under.

Park it at a tent site or head off-grid! Two powerful batteries allow you to run the ceiling fan, water pump, heater/hot water and charge your devices without being plugged in for a few days. The Cricket's rugged construction is designed to handle your off-the-beaten-path adventure.

We include a complete, high-quality kitchen set with the rental. Everything you need and maybe a few things you don't! (Detailed below). We also offer an array of accessories to augment your trip such as camp chairs, sleeping pads and even a stand-up paddle board! (Extra fees apply).

The unique kids berths are suspended from the Cricket's ceiling and can fold up out of the way when not in use. Max weight is 130 lbs. 5'2" long.

There's a hot and cold outdoor shower for you, your pooch and your kids. Extra options include a porta-potty kit and privacy tent.

The Cricket weighs 1800 lbs dry. It 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 about 20". We have an adjustable hitch, included in rental.

Whether you're a solo traveler, a couple getting away from it all, or a family looking for that next great outdoor adventure, let our lucky Cricket be your ticket!
We look forward to sharing it and meeting you soon!

Always level the trailer with the hitch crank. The four stabilizers on the vehicle are intended only to provide support for the leveled trailer.

Always lock the doors when the trailer is being towed.

Michael answered all of our questions prior to picking up Mee-ja's and his Cricket quickly. He also took the time to explain how to use the Cricket with patience, friendliness and efficiency. We enjoyed meeting him and sharing camping stories...and heard what he liked about the Cricket.

Michael was a great host. Made the entire experience easy and comfortable.
He has outfitted the camper with all you need - just bring your sleeping
bag, pillow and food. The Taxa Cricket is a unique and functional camper.
Everyone was so impressed and it fit our family of 4 and a dog just fine.
We’ll definitely be back!

Great experience! The trailer was in perfect shape, super clean and well appointed. Other than food and sleeping bags, just about everything needed for a family camping trip was provided.

We needed extra space at our cabin for the weekend. This camper was perfect as it was very spacious, really clean, and easy to use. We are in our sixties and we found it comfortable for sleeping - we rented the extra mattresses. Throughout the process, Michael and Mee-ja were wonderful to work with as they were very responsive and helpful in making a good plan. We highly recommend working with them and renting their camper whether you use it for extra space for the weekend or take if on the road. Thank you for a great experience. Jan and Mark

We had a great experience renting from Michael & Mee-Ja. The Cricket was fully equipped with everything you could possibly need for a weekend (or longer) of camping! Michael did a fantastic job explaining all the features and they were flexible with pickup and drop-off times!

Michael & Mee-Ja’s answer

Thanks Josh! It was great meeting you and sharing our Cricket.
