NASA architect designs new touring caravan

The world of outdoor living is entering the space age courtesy of a new tent/camper designed by NASA architect Garret Finney.

The ‘Cricket Trailer’ combines touring caravan and tent to create a flexible camping vehicle. Its custom-built interior can be tailored to each traveller’s needs, with options including a V-Berth or Folding Couch layout, choice of soft furnishings and appliances and exterior colour.

Its striking features include a pop-up roof, kitchenette with adjustable shower, camping toilet, futon-style bed and two children’s beds that unclip from the ceiling.

The structure of the Cricket Trailer is strong yet lightweight with a stress-skin aluminium chassis. At present, it is only available from Texas in the USA, however Garret is hoping that caravan sales will be rolled out into other markets in future.
