Tiny, Ultraportable ESCAPE Cabin Can be Moved Anywhere Just Like an RV

With the idea that bigger is not better, ESCAPE was design with the sensibilities of Frank Lloyd Wright in mind. Although ESCAPE is truly a mobile home, the attention to detail makes the cedar-lined structure seem more like a rustic cabin escape. The hand-made cabin can be delivered to any site, and quickly set up, just by plugging in the utilities. Outside, a deluxe screened in porch allows for a comfortable outdoor living room or even a sleeping room. The red and white striped double chaise is heated, to keep guests comfortable in any whether, without wasting energy by heating the whole room.

Inside, the customizable cabin has vaulted ceilings, giving an open and airy feeling that also encourages natural ventilation. Energy Star appliances keep costs low, while a fireplace can be lit for extra heat. Ample storage closets and hanging space extend throughout to keep minimal living easy. A modern bathroom and LED lights keep things comfortable.

The ESCAPE is a symbol of modern living, where energy efficiency and minimalism are met with the comforts of good design.

    Not All RVs have an “ENGINE” and can be driven. Some RVs are hooked up to a pick up truck or hitched behind car. The non engine RVs have wheels and can be transported without a special license or permit.
    “Park Model” homes look just like houses yet are considered RVs (they have wheels) and can be hitched behind a pick up truck for transport.
    The pictured RV looks like a “Park Model” type. Plenty of people in campgrounds have park model RVs.
    Tiny homes on trailers are ALSO CONSIDERED RVs and thus not taxed.

    If its an RV it is not taxed but if its a “Mobile home” (no wheels and you need to pay a company,which needs special licenses and a permit to transport to site on their flat bed truck) it falls under PROPERTY TAXES for most jurisdictions.

  13. Wayne March 24, 2014 at 2:35 pm

    I love this one. So many tiny houses seem to much like a small trailer, this feels more like a small condo.


  14. Kate Hibou March 18, 2014 at 7:36 am

    I love them. Where can you get one? Can I have it shipped to Adelaide?

  15. curly March 16, 2014 at 3:21 pm

    This is super cool BUT …NOTE TO WRITER..EDITOR ….Please stop using rv and mobile home interchangeably. ….a recreational vehicle= rv and has an engine and a drivers seat…thank you. This story has been sent all over the web as look at this rv…it is a mobile home people! Just had to let that out…thanks!

    A really pricey trailer home (not an RV), but it certainly is beautiful. $79,000 base for those who didn’t click the link. “Classic” version $99.990. (HINT: click the link) I drooled over various amazing trailers like the Tiny Homes, but finally bought a used traditional one I could afford for $9000. The benefit is– I can sleep at night.

  18. christyb March 5, 2014 at 7:03 pm

    I want to know more about this cabin and where I can buy one. Thanks.

  19. Rae Gale March 1, 2014 at 7:49 pm

    I am interested in learning more about this cabin. Where can I get more information about where you are, and what the construction is exactly. Like insulation etc.

  20. Barbara Mosley March 1, 2014 at 11:56 am

    LOVE this!!!! What are the dimensions?

  21. Gerry Neumann February 27, 2014 at 8:07 pm

    An RV would have an engine and a steering wheel? It may be a mobile home or camper, but it is not an RV.

  22. cowlsey February 26, 2014 at 6:50 pm

    So, this can be pulled like a camper?

  23. SOmeone February 25, 2014 at 11:05 am

    Very nice, very cute, however, it is a trailer home, not an RV, an RV has a motor and wheels (Recreational Vehicle). Are there more than one design layout???

  24. Hedy February 24, 2014 at 10:32 am

    like everyone else is asking… WHere can it be purchased/
    How much???

  25. tyger11 February 23, 2014 at 2:40 pm

    Folks, if you click on the \’Canoe Bay ESCAPE\’ link at the bottom of the article, all your questions will be answered. :)

  26. Candice157 February 23, 2014 at 2:04 pm

    I’d like to see what type of vehicle/hitch is needed to pull it.

  27. nwanick February 23, 2014 at 10:39 am


    Well Equipped: $99,990, Base version $79,990 until 5/1/14.

  28. Morris Lewis February 22, 2014 at 10:00 pm

    where can i buy or have this built?

  29. wkb2texans February 22, 2014 at 9:53 pm


    This model starts at $79,990 for the base model which includes tons of standard features like cedar siding, pine tongue and groove walls inside, kitchen with appliances, and the bathrooms all finished too. Pricey but if you got money instead of time this might be a decent option for you if you’re looking to live simply.

  30. DianeH February 22, 2014 at 12:52 pm
