TAXA Cricket Will Come With Truma Combi Heaters

Wed Apr 5, 2017

149140874853816.jpgELKHART, Indiana – Truma has announced that is is now offering the Truma Combi exclusively on the new 2017 TAXA Outdoors Cricket trailer. TAXA Outdoors is an outdoor manufacturer of lightweight, recreational campers and trailers for wanderers seeking adventures off the grid.

“When we started looking for a heating solution for our campers, we knew we needed something out of this world,” TAXA Outdoors Founder Garrett Finney says, who invented the trailers and is a former NASA architect. "We wanted to keep the weight low, and our customer is focused on being off the grid, so efficiency and reliability are key for us, not to mention technology. Space in a 15-foot trailer is limited and the Combi was the only choice for us on the Cricket."

“The Cricket and the Combi are a perfect melding of NASA inspired design and the latest in RV technology,” Truma Vice President of Business Development Mark Howlett says. "The Truma Combi allows TAXA to provide their customers the full experience of adventure camping, without the interruption of a noisy furnace and water heater spoiling the sounds of nature.”
