The pop-up camper industry is guaranteed to change with the emergence of the 2015 Cricket V-Berth pop-up trailer. It’s a lightweight option for travelers who are willing to sacrifice a bit of space for towability and a low price point. Although, the affordability of the 2015 Cricket V-Berth doesn’t mean you won’t enjoy your favorite camping luxuries. This RV is equipped with all of the comforts and conveniences of trailers double its size.

The V-Berth Layout

The 2015 Cricket V-Berth comes in two models — the standard cricket and the sport edition. The standard cricket is equipped with a convertible v-berth lounge, water heater, an exterior shower and plenty of storage space for your travel supplies. Travelers who choose the sport edition will enjoy a similar layout with exclusive silver panels, a rugged build, higher ground clearance and a roof rack.

Even better, the Cricket V-Berth takes just minutes to set up at the campsite, so you can start enjoying your vacation sooner. This compact RV is also towable by most 4-cylinder engines, so you don’t need to invest in an expensive tow vehicle to start your RV lifestyle.
