Company Summary

We design and build products for the $100bb outdoor recreation industry. Our founder focused on small space design at NASA's Johnson Space Center. A lifelong outdoorsman, he taught, designed, lectured, and worked on small space ideas before crafting and building the first cricket trailer in 2009. Small and lightweight, crickets can sleep 2 adults and 2 children with plumbing and electricity; they've struck a chord with people around the world.
