Having a man cave in your basement is all well and good, but it’s even better if it’s portable. Enter the Escape Sport, which is basically a base camp on wheels.

There’s no need to sacrifice modern comforts, like a shower. The Escape Sport comes with a fiberglass bath that can be upgraded to stainless steel. Hot water comes from an electric heater powered by a plug-in, generator, or solar panels.
Like the rest of the unit, the toilet area has wood walls and plenty of storage for essentials.
The kitchen is simple, with locking steel cabinets, drawers, and an armoire to store provisions and kit. There’s also a compact fridge, induction cooktop, and microwave.
The Sport, which measures 20 by 8.5 by 8 feet, can sleep up to four people, with two in a queen-size bed that converts to a daybed and an optional twin as an upper bunk.
There’s also a bar, of course. This one has picture windows all around, dual stools, and a wooden countertop. It doubles as a writing desk and dinner table.
The secret to the Escape Sport’s spacious feel? Big windows and strategically placed mirrors. The 36-inch-long window in the locking entry door allows for easy packing.
The U.S. craftsmen who built the Escape Sport have 158 years of combined experience. They can customize the Sport in many ways, with everything from extra outlets and AC to an electric fireplace and flatscreen TV.
The Escape Sport comes in standard and toy hauler versions for $39,600 and $45,400, respectively. The toy hauler has an integrated eight-foot storage shed with a ramp entrance, as well as off-grid power options and water packages.
