Escapod was born out of necessity. A need to escape the daily grind at a moment’s notice, to be unbounded by terrain and free to roam.

We believe that time is too precious to spend it tracking-down and packing-up camping gear. We wanted a tent on wheels, always ready for our next adventure. The teardrop trailer seemed like the right solution, but nothing on the market checked all our boxes.

So, we designed and built our own.

Our mission was simple: build the best damn camper known to man - a teardrop trailer that’s gentle on the eyes, rugged enough for the craziest adventures, and suitable for year-round fun.

Blending the concept of a sleeping pod with the thrill of an escapade, the Escapod name was formed. And after fumbling our way through some napkin doodles, we refined & digitized the now-iconic “e” logo. In June 2016, Escapod was officially born when the first pods were built in our mom’s garage.

Today, Escapod has grown into one of the most revered producers of teardrop trailers in the US. We are proud to say that, throughout our tremendous growth, we are still a privately owned business.

Our goal is simply to maximize our customer’s connection with the great outdoors by providing dependable, hand-built teardrop trailers. Life’s demands may require you to change, but your adventure doesn’t have to. Whether you’re a weekend warrior or a full-time vagabond, there is an Escapod for you.


Excellence matters. We’re not just building a teardrop trailer, we’re building an Escapod - your basecamp to connect with friends & family in the great outdoors. A job well-done means we can sleep better, and so will you.
We overbuild our teardrop trailers so you can rest easy in the confidence that they’ll handle anything you throw at 'em. We worry about it all so you never have to. Our trailers are built to support a community with adventurous ambitions, and a demand for uncompromising quality.


Life is more fulfilling when lived adventurously, and it’s a philosophy we’re compelled to share. Not deterred by the unknown, we’re committed to exploring what’s never been done in order to serve our mission to build the best damn camper known to man.
Every Escapod we build is ready for adventure with off-road-capable suspension and full-size wheels. We not only want to stand out in a crowd, but we want to be able to escape them - to explore the open spaces around us in order to connect more deeply with each other and the great outdoors.


We’re often told that our product “has everything you need and nothing you don’t.” We spend countless hours refining our designs to make a pod that’s intuitive and enjoyable to use. That same philosophy is applied to our customer-experience from discovery to delivery.
We stress over every addition to our teardrop trailers, and just as importantly: everything we leave out. Always repeating our mantra “form follows function”, we work obsessively to create teardrop trailers that are easy to use - the ultimate expression of freedom through simplicity.


We’ve never built the same trailer twice - and we mean this in the best way. Our team is constantly working to improve and if we can’t find an existing solution, we create one.
