Escape has made a name for itself in the tiny house community with its Park Model RV and Traveler tiny homes, which offer an excellent finish and well thought-out features. Its latest model, the Vista, promises the same craftsmanship but at a lower price, and features optional off-grid technology, very generous glazing, and a space-saving layout.
Following a vacation that included time spent sheltering from rain in an RV with a lackluster view, Longmont, Colorado-based F9 Productions was inspired to create Atlas. Described as a tiny house/RV hybrid, the solar-powered dwelling boasts generous glazing and a porch that unfolds to offer a semi-outdoor space.
Grilling in the backyard is great, but it can be even better in the scenery of a beautiful park or the company of a pregame tailgate. If you don't plan on driving, however, getting your grill, fuel, food, utensils and other gear there may become so challenging that you call it quits before you ever hear the sizzle of a burger or bratwurst. The Grillrider lets cyclists and walkers roll everything they need for a cookout to the park, tailgate or campground. It's a bike trailer and hand trolley built specifically for grilling, and with its removable modules, it also works as a more general cargo hauler.
You want to go camping with the family, but you also want to sneak out and bike a bit of the enticing weave of scenic roads just outside camp. You can do both, and you don't even need a camper van towing a toy trailer or a seven-figure expedition vehicle with a bike lift. The new Opus Moto trailer packs the fold-out comfort of the original Opus together with a trailer-top motorcycle carrier and lift system.
Unfortunately, the much-hated office cubicle isn't going away any time soon, but the small living movement has enabled a few enterprising types to enjoy an unorthodox working environment. In a similar vein to the Lorraine and Kantoorkaravaan, Denmark-based designer Jonas Hallberg's Tiny Office features everything required to do a day's work, wherever he chooses to take it.
Vertical farms present an efficient, cost-effective and sustainable means of producing food in the face of growing worldwide population. A see-through, mobile vertical farm project called Isabel is aiming to take this message on the road.
A sort of alternative to the common backpack, the Armadillo EVS trailer gives you the ability to haul gear over virtually any type of surface on Earth.

The ScarabRV is a new ultralight camping trailer that frees you to hit the road with room for two, whether you're traveling by small car or motorcycle. In contrast to the typical cranking pop-up, this trailer's tent inflates into shape within a minute of arrival. Easy to tow and easy to use, the Scarab is designed to take the headaches out of travel and camping.
An Austrian company is building trailer homes that are designed not only to be compact, but with self-sufficiency in mind, too. Wohnwagon's trailers provide 25 sq m (269 sq ft) of living space and have their own off-grid electricity, water and waste systems. They can also be used as offices, guest rooms or cafes.
There are plenty of camping trailers that haul boats and other outdoor gear into the wild. We've covered options like the SylvanSport GO-Easy and BCT MOAB Yak within the past year. Portland-based American Dream Trailer Company has a new – er, revisited – idea for how to best transport a boat on your camper. In place of the typical gear racks, its trailer uses a matching boat that secures to the trailer roof like a fitted hat.
