Regular readers may remember the Escape home we reported on last year that brings the kind of fixtures and fittings you'd usually expect to find in a full-sized house to a Park Home. The company is back with the Escape Traveler which, as you might have guessed, takes this compact living concept and puts it on a trailer for easier transportation.
The Escape Traveler comes in two sizes: the standard, which sits on a 28 ft (8.5 m) trailer, and the XL, which rests on an even larger 34 ft (10.3 m) trailer. The models measure 269 sq ft (24 sq m) and 344 sq ft (32 sq m) respectively.

Recycled Maple Dakota plank cladding and sloped metal roof give the tiny house a rural look, while the interior is modern and open, with plenty of natural light.
The clever layout comprises a dining area and a kitchen with full-size appliances in the center, with a lounge located to one side and a bathroom to the other. The lounge includes a sofa bed, television, and electric fireplace, and the bathroom boasts both a shower and bath. There's also a decent amount of storage space inside for a tiny house.
The two loft bedrooms are accessed via ladders on each side of the home, one of which houses a queen-sized bed (the XL also has a separate main floor bedroom). Additional options include a washer/dryer, ceiling fan, spa tub, air-conditioning, and a generator. The home gets it power and water via standard hookup. Lighting comes in the form of low-energy LED lights, while low-energy windows are installed throughout, and closed cell foam is used for insulation.
Prices start at US$65,400, for the standard size Escape Traveler, while the XL version commands $72,800.
