TAXA Outdoors, the leading manufacturer of lightweight, mobile human habitats for outdoor adventure is expanding its collection of habitats with the introduction of new 2020 models. The new Mantis, Cricket, Tiger Moth and Woolly Bear will offer updates and renovations to key interior and exterior features of the units while maintaining their groundbreaking “garageability” and flexible, lightweight design. TAXA is also introducing new, limited edition ‘White Sands’ models for 2020.
New 2020 Mantis innovations include a new pop-up roof to increase ventability, the addition of a back ladder to easily access roof storage and a new rear-door hatch to allow for a more open footprint and ventilation throughout the rig.
“We listened to the needs of our customers and fans when designing the new Mantis,” said CEO and founder Garrett Finney. “With more living space for bigger families and a more open-air design intended to better bring the outdoors in, we can’t wait for people to get out and explore in this new model.”
Additional new features include a multi-function seating and dining system that offers space for eating, playing games or working while inside, and can be removed from the rig and used as a dinette table for dining under the stars. Wider bunks allow for more comfortable sleeping, and the addition of attachment points for use with a rooftop tent offers added sleeping space. The 2020 Mantis starts at $46,167 MSRP.
