The thought of spending more than $50,000 on a tiny home that’s only slightly larger than the average parking space may sound blasphemous to some, but for those with a thirst for the open road, the freedom to travel in luxury and comfort may be worth it.
Escape Homes has recently unveiled its Escape Vintage, a handcrafted portable home that's built like a cottage but classified as a Park Model RV. The cabin-inspired home starts at$59,800 and offers all the comforts of home with off-the-grid capability.
Targeted toward retirees eager to travel, the new Vintage prioritizes comfort with a traditional Americana design that, despite its 315-square foot size, features a first-floor queen size bedroom, kitchen with a full-size refrigerator, dining area, living area, full-size bath and an upstairs loft/bedroom.
