Escape gives Tradition a nod for latest tiny house
We usually associate Escape with contemporary tiny house designs like the Vista, but with its latest model the firm has produced a towable dwelling that may appeal to those who prefer the classic cutesy tiny house look. Able to run on or off-the-grid and with plenty of optional extras, pricing for the Tradition starts at US$53,000.
The Tradition is offered in multiple sizes and versions, including a 21 ft (6.4 m)-long model and a larger 25 ft (7.62 m)-long version with a porch. It nails the classic tiny house look with its gable roof and cedar siding exterior. The interior is finished in pine tongue and groove and looks to a high standard, like all of Escape's homes thus far.
The majority of the Tradition's ground floor is taken up by an open lounge, kitchen and dining area. There's enough space for a sofa (a sofa bed is optional) and a drop-down dining table/desk is installed. The kitchenette includes a sink, full-size fridge, propane-powered oven and three burner stove, plus storage space.
Further into the home lies a large closet (shelves and a washer/dryer unit are also an option) and a door to the bathroom. The bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet, plus a towel rack, storage cabinet and mirror.
The Tradition's main loft bedroom is accessed by ladder (stairs are yet another option) and, at 4 ft (1.4 m) tall, looks to be a little taller than most tiny house lofts we cover – though you're still not going to be standing up straight in there.
A secondary loft is also accessed by ladder and can be used as a storage space or additional bedroom.
The Tradition gets its power from a standard RV hookup or can run off-the grid with a solar package (a composting toilet is available, too). Weight comes in at 8,000 - 12,000 lb (3,628 - 5,443 kg), depending on the size and options chosen.
