If Tim Allen built an RV, it would probably look a lot like this

We’ve seen all kinds of RVs and campers: expensive ones, even more expensive ones, and retro ones. But the Escape Sport is more of the rugged and industrial variety, while still being stylish. It has a steel frame, aluminum siding, weather-resistant wood, thermopane windows, and insulated floors. The diamond plate steel cabinets and armoire look like they’d be at home in a garage or tool shed.

While the walls give it an almost unfinished look, there are still plenty of amenities in the Sport. You can sleep up to four in the 170-square-foot space it provides, and the kitchen features a stowable induction cooktop, mini fridge, stainless steel sink, and laminate or wood countertops.

The designers squeezed a bathroom into the tiny space, too, with a fiberglass shower, Toto toilet, and LED lighting, no less. At night, you can sprawl out on the queen-sized bed. From there, you can add all sorts of extras, including an upper bunk bed ($750 for the full size, $900 for the queen), rooftop A/C  ($1,500), electric fireplace ($1,200), mounted flat screen TV with a BluRay player ($940), solar power system ($5,200), and steel shower ($800).


The RV is 20 feet long but also comes in a 28-foot Toy Hauler option. The first costs $39,600 and the latter starts at $45,400. Charcoal Gray, Bandit Black, Diamond Ice, Indigo Blue, and Victory Red are all available color options, “but don’t jazz it up too much or you’ll miss the point,” according to the Sport’s site.

The Escape team that created the RV also makes Escape Traveler, a 269-square-foot tiny house on wheels. Dan Dobrowolski, who founded the company, started selling replicas of the cottages at Midwest resort Canoe Bay last year. Those offer a more polished look and are priced accordingly: the Classic model starts at $95,900.
