It used to be that owning a home meant you were tied down, settled in one place, and locked into a mortgage that effectively robbed you of your freedom to move at a moment's notice. Well, not any more, thanks to the ESCAPE: a cottage-style, parked RV that looks and functions like a house (with hidden wheels), except you can tow it anywhere.
Windows are made with low-emissivity glass, the wood doors are solid, and there’s an optional fireplace -- you might not guess so by looking at it, but the cabin uses only around $30 worth of electricity a month, on average.
Guess what? They even have a beach/coastal version! See the pics, floor plans, and specs, right here.
