SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Part tent, part RV, the NASA-inspired Cricket Trailer is the go-to camper for the modern road tripper, according to Dwell.
In 1999, architect Garrett Finney landed a dream job at NASA. As a habitation module designer, he mocked up rest-eat-sleep spaces for astronauts aboard the International Space Station, Dwell reported.
Combining his small-space expertise and backpacking background, Finney designed the Cricket Trailer, a small, self-contained pop-up camper, Dwell explained. Finney explained his trailer, “It’s not a house on wheels but a portable adventure living space.” Each trailer weighs between 1,000 and 1,500 pounds and costs from $10,000 to just under $18,000 depending on how heavily it’s outfitted.
