New-and-improved tiny house sleeps up to eight people
Escape has followed-up its recent Vintage tiny house with the Vintage XL. Featuring the same cute and cottagey design but made larger, the towable tiny house has a spacious layout inside and can sleep a maximum of eight people. The total price comes in at US$73,400.
While the standard Vintage measures 25 ft (7.6 m) long and comprises a total floorspace of 315 sq ft (29 sq m), the new Vintage XL measures 30 ft (9 m) long and has 355 sq ft (32 sq m) of floorspace.
The interior layout is centered around a large open living space that includes a lounge area with a couch that pulls out into a double bed. There's also a fold-down dining table and a kitchenette with full-size sink, range cooker, and refrigerator. Adjacent to the living area lies a bathroom with a toilet, bathtub and shower, and a vanity unit.
The primary bedroom is on the ground floor and includes a queen-size bed with storage underneath and twin storage cabinets. The upstairs loft is reached by ladder and can be used as either a secondary bedroom or a storage area.
A second loft bedroom can also optionally be installed at cost, meaning that the Vintage XL sleeps a maximum of eight people – not that you'd want to do that in a tiny house for very long, but it's handy for visitors. Escape also offers an optional layout with laundry room.
The tiny house is clad in cedar lap siding and cedar trim with steel detailing. The interior is finished in tongue and groove with pine trim. The insulation used is closed-cell foam, which has an average R-rating of R-22 for the walls, R-30 for the floor, and R-40 for the ceiling.
As with all of Escape's models to date, the Vintage XL can be outfitted with a full off-grid package for those wanting to cut the cord. This includes a roof-based solar array, batteries, and composting toilet.
