Top-tier tiny house firm Escape first unveiled the Traveler back in 2015 but has just announced a new, updated version called the Traveler XL Limited. Bigger and better than the original, the new tiny house also comes with more options and can sleep an impressive 10 people.

Based on a triple-axle trailer, the Traveler XL Limited measures 30 ft (9.1 m)-long and has a total floorspace of 344 sq ft (32 sq m). Both the size of the windows and their number has been increased since the last model, while the interior layout has been given a rethink too, with the couch position and table moved around and storage space increased.

Still, the interior continues to look very much like the original Traveler – which is a good thing, in our opinion, and the modern, clean design, combined with all that glazing, flatters the small space.

The ground floor is centered around a living area with optional extras like sofa bed, pop-up TV, and Blu-ray player all available. The kitchenette is adjacent and boasts full-size appliances, including a range cooker and sink. The bathroom is located to one side and has a 5 ft (1.5 m)-long tub and shower, toilet, and cabinet. An optional washer/dryer is an extra too.

The Traveler XL Limited comes with two bedrooms as standard: one master bedroom on the ground floor that boasts enough headroom to stand up, plus a loft bedroom accessed by ladder. We asked Escape how many people you could fit in there and were told that, when you add an optional second loft bedroom that has room for a couple of beds, plus the sofa bed, there should be room for 10 people, assuming a few of those were kids.

Lots of sleeping room is something we've seen before from Escape and its Vintage XL also sleeps eight people. You wouldn't want to do that full time of course, but for one night with guests over, it could be handy.

The firm has refined its off-grid options with the Traveler XL Limited and the standard solar package packs a 500 W solar panel array, linked to 200 Ah battery storage. However, this can be upgraded to a 1 kW solar panel array and 400 Ah battery storage. A standard RV hookup is also available, as are composting and non-composting toilets.

The Traveler XL Limited starts at US$78,500. Check out the video below for a tour around the home.

I love this, except the roof line. They need to do one that has the dormers in the loft areas and a flat top on top in the middle section so you can have a rooftop deck. That would make their designs so much nicer. As they are, i wouldn't purchase them. Dry wall does not hold up to travel. It's been proven time and time again that it crumbles, cracks, and falls apart. You need to have something stronger like a light wood. Anyways, i love the windows and the design apart from those things. It wild be very pretty with just those minor fixes. They are getting better with each new model they do. Next, I'd like to see them put in something safer for a stove like a flat cook top of some kind. That can be run off solar, as well. 😊 That's my ten cents. Thank you for the awesome article! Have a great day!

How can they call this a tiny house, it's gigantic! Bigger than my first or second apartment. But hey, if Denver is going to use overpriced Tiny Houses to solve the homeless problem then at least this one would give them a decent bang for the buck.

I love the concepts of tiny homes. However, for this price tag my wife and I built our own solar off grid home that is over 1000 sq ft for less. I know a few people in the tiny home community also building their homes for a whole lot less. If you want someone else to do it for you, this is a great option.
