Odd indeed. It actually looks damaged, although it is not!

Does the blue body fold up along those diagonal creases for storage, as well as the cover? If so that would be compact indeed!

Edit: nope it only folds down as far as the canvas. There's a website at

http://crickettrailer.com

You have to see the indoor shower setup. I can't see any advantage to showering inside this trailer. Unless maybe if it were raining outside, but then you might need to shower at all:

Another picture. The website says the design is for maximum fuel efficiency. It fits in a garage and can be pulled by smaller engines. I could not find what it is made of though.

Oh, here is the answer: NASA Architect's Cricket Trailer Showcases Space-Age Design | Inhabitat - Green Design Will Save the World

There are lots more pix there too.

I like it. It has some interesting features that could be borrowed for our trailers.

Am I missing something because it looks to me like the shower water would just run all over the floor of the trailer.....

saw one on the road....

just last week....(Pacific Marine Highway).....owners said they loved it (a couple in their sixties towing with a Subaru)

I went looking for it on the net...found out it's around 24k (that a LOT of k in my book for what you get...but it's a very interesting concept)

The outside is aluminum, some bonded thing. The shower is no longer on the inside, but on the outside for those equipped with one. They seem to be doing pretty well having added a Tiger Moth, and Wooly Bear to the litter.

I was looking at them when they first came out, very lightweight and you can hang bags and such from several points, but I read that the front acts like a "sail".

They have quite a following for more the "camping" type person than the "RV" type person. Lots of people with different needs and desires, this is just one of the choices.

I knew they were introducing the new larger model that sleeps 4 at the dealer show that just took place.

I am wondering if there will be anything new in molded fiberglass this year.

Maybe. I believe the new and improved Parkliner is due out soon. Last I heard the Airstream Nest is also coming in early 2018. Not sure, but I think the Dinky Dub was introduced earlier this year. It's Dub Box USA's new, smaller model.

I understand Happier Camper is also building a new trailer built on the vintage Trillium. Either the 4500 or the 5500 models. Hummmmm.

Of all of the trailers I looked it it came down to 2 the scamp or the Cricket. We ended up going with the scamp due to the bathroom and the hard sides.

The thought and design that went into the Cricket is amazing, every inch of it can be used for storage or to hang things. I wanted to buy it just from an engineering / metal fabrication perspective as it blew me away.

If we were looking for something basic for weekend camping I would have taken the Cricket over the scamp but we were looking for more creature comforts and something that we can use for months at a time.

If you have not seen one they are worth taking a look at just to see the engineering / thoughtful design.
