A Cricket Travel Trailer you can Rent before you Buy in Portland

The Cricket is a light weight pop-up trailer that is perfect for your next possible road adventure.

Not as simple and inexpensive as a teardrop camper (like the one I showed you yesterday)..

But it’s really flexible, modern, sleek and still relatively affordable for an RV/travel trailer.

The one I’m showing you today you can actually rent and try out for yourself if you’re ever in the Portland, Oregon area.

The best part is that you can get it dropped off within 50 miles of the location or you can make the trek there yourself.

I thought, “what an awesome way to try something like this out without having to fork out thousands of dollars.”

So I did what any blogger would do.. Share it with you here on Tiny House Talk!

I encourage you to take the complete tour of this awesome, modern little travel trailer below:

There’s enough space inside for 2 adults and a child. And I bet a most little kids would absolutely love to sleep in the cool “loft” bed/cot that you can sort of see below.

And of course the bed transforms into a sofa much like any futon you’d normally see.

I love how you can open it up and bring the outside in, see below.

Also notice the ceiling storage up top to keep everything inside as organized as possible.


If you’re into cycling, surfing, or both you can definitely bring those things with you.

And you can even bring some solar panels with you to charge up when you’re off the grid.

    Honestly, it rather reminds me of the vW Thing, which looked like the box a VW came in, except in this case, it got dropped off a forklift first.
