When we talk about tiny houses, we usually feature quirks like bathtubs in the kitchen and miniature appliances. But in the new 269-square-foot Escape Traveler RV, architects Kelly Davis and Dan George Dobrowolski spared no amenity, finding space-saving ways to incorporate full-size kitchen appliances and a standard, 60-inch bathtub. Plus, the eco-friendly home can sleep up to six people. How did the design team achieve this feat? They lofted two of the sleeping areas and created three main-floor zones, the central kitchen/dining area, the bathroom, and the living room that doubles as an additional bedroom.
The kitchen has a full-size range and refrigerator and plenty of cabinets for all-around storage. The oversized windows alongside the dining area and the ribbon windows that span the length of the RV make the space feel even larger and let in lots of natural light.
In addition to a television and shelving, the living room boasts a pretty cozy fireplace. The couch easily folds down into a bed.
Full-size appliances are also found in the bathroom, where there’s even a washer/dryer.
The exterior of the eco-friendly dwelling is clad in cedar, while the interior features recycled maple planks. It’s completely climate controlled and has minimal power consumption.
Escape Traveler weighs between 10,000 and 12,000 pounds, and it’s said that even a standard pickup truck can move it. The traveling tiny home starts at $65,400, and there’s a limited-edition model that goes for $82,400. Learn more about the Escape Traveler here.
