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.

I think that would be great for glamping, a movable beach cottage, or a guest room.

Again Price $30k you could buy two used motor homes, it's neat but the pricing needs to be around $15k

Hey, nice insulation figures! Um, except for all that nice viewing glass, which is usually not more than about R-3. $30k for an exceptionally heavy, bright, camping trailer with a few extras? And solar, a/c, and composting toilet are all extra cost? Ouch!

I could buy a RV trailer thats 30 feet long, with a bathroom and seperate bedroom and marble counter tops for 30k, that is BRAND NEW for 30k. This probably costs like 8-10k to build, they are selling it for way to much. If they can sell some and make a profit good for them, but it seems like a terrible price to anyone who actually knows the competition costs.

An RV motor home offers shelter, safety, and mobility. Tiny homes that are moveable just seems like an answer to a question not many people are asking. If they want to put it permanently somewhere, a park model is possible. A nice RV, towed or motor home, lets you go all over and not be tied to a single place; "that's the life".

Why do people keep trying to make homes in chicken huts, when it been done many time before, and much better, with motor homes and trailer homes. This has all the aerodynamics of a house-brick, and would be a serious hazard to tow behind a car with any wind at all. The big open glazed areas, would tend to cause the framework to be flexible, and it would be debatable whether they would still be intact on arrival.
