If the potential results of November’s election have you contemplating vacating the U.S. for more politically sound pastures, chances are you’re going to need a place to live once you cross the border.

Luckily, we’ve got a line on a new mobile micro-home that’ll leave you with plenty of spare greenbacks for greasin’ any Federales/Mounties that try to stop you along the way.*

Named for what it’s made to do, the Roving is a 154-square-foot cedar and aluminum cabin built atop a custom steel trailer with radial tires, safety brakes and four leveling jacks.

There are DIY (blueprints and trailer, $6,884) and semi-DIY (blueprints, trailer and completed home shell, $19,884) options available, or you can get a fully outfitted Roving that’ll be move-in ready in eight weeks for $49,884.

The locked-and-loaded edition comes care of 84 Lumber and features an Energy Star refrigerator, stainless steel sink, electric stovetop, built-in kitchen table, composting toilet, energy-saving LED lighting, cork floors and a lofted bedroom with enough space for a full-size bed. With low-E aluminum clad windows and insulated wall framing, the energy-efficient Roving is built to withstand the elements and impress your neighbors.

The Tiny Living branch of 84 Lumber plans to roll out three larger models — the Shonsie, Evergreen and Degsy — in the coming months, but all will measure smaller than 200 square feet.

Pack light.
