    See this link with details to help with the installation: How do I install Ubuntu to a USB key? - install like into an internal drive
    I've done this as well, installed to a generic USB3 flash drive. It seems to work fine though it's slower than installing to a HDD or SDD. My machine having USB2 ports didn't help anything, I'm sure. I can't comment about durability, i haven't used it that much. it used to be recommended to use an ext2 file system to reduce writes (no journal) but I've also read that the latest iterations of of ext4 don't produce much more flash wear than ext2. Just take your time and put the bootloader on the correct drive.

    @sudodus, Ubuntu 18.10 has been released, mkusb works fine, I'm writing from persistent Ubuntu.
    Side note:
    I've got an error printed out in the terminal while using mkusb:
    - sed:tweak 3 grub.cfg
    Failed Check carefully what happened
    But as I said, it had no effect, at least so far, on operating system's usability.
