Pint-sized tiny house designed for weekends away
Tiny house company Escape has followed up its Vista and Vista Go with a new model based on the same basic design. Dubbed Vista Sport, it's the firm's smallest and most affordable towable dwelling to date and blurs the already fine line between small tiny house and camping trailer.
The Vista Sport is based on a single-axle trailer and measures just 13 ft (4 m) in length, with a total floorspace of 110 sq ft (10 sq m), which makes it one of the smallest towable dwellings we've covered in quite some time.
Reflecting this, Escape positions the Vista Sport as a weekend getaway or guest house, rather than a full-time abode. Inside, the firm has installed a queen-size bed with integrated storage and an optional pop-up TV. Next to this lies a kitchenette with camper van style flip-up sink and stove unit, additional storage space and a refrigerator beneath. The small bathroom includes a toilet and a shower.
There's little room to move around but the Vista Sport doesn't look like it would be too claustrophobic thanks to those large windows which feature on the entire Vista line.
The Vista Sport weighs roughly 4,900 lb (2,222 kg), depending on the options chosen and can optionally run off-the-grid with a solar power and composting toilet setup.
Its exterior is clad in cedar vertical siding and cedar trim with steel detailing, while the interior is finished in pine tongue and groove. Insulation is closed cell foam and rated to an R-Value of R-22 for the walls, R-30 for the floor, and R-40 for the ceiling.
An electric heater is included and a roof-mounted air conditioning unit is optional. The glazing can also be outfitted with privacy glass.
The Vista Sport will set you back US$29,800.
