If you’re like us, your idea of roughing it is a cute, refurbished motor court in Texas or a friend’s family cabin in the Catskills. Stick us in a tent, and we curse the outdoors.
But here’s something that’s kind of halfway between the two: the Cricket Trailer (pictured).
Invented by a guy who designed the astronauts’ living area on the International Space Station, every Cricket is built to order. You can get just the shell ($10,000) and use gear you already have. An additional $4,000 gets you a kitchen cabinet, sink, hot water heater, couch, fridge, and table. Really committing to the outdoor life? The $17,000 version comes with a two-burner cooktop, shower, portable toilet, heating or AC, and a bed.
Made mostly of aluminum, wood, and steel, the aerodynamic and lightweight trailer can be pulled by a regular car and fits inside a standard garage. We at least like the idea of the Cricket, even if seventeen thou is more than we’ll ever spend for time in the woods.
