2021 Pricing Update for Improved TOPO Series Trailer
At Escapod, it's our mission to build the best damn camper known to man and in an effort to do so, we're always striving to improve our product. By sourcing better materials, hiring great people, implementing lean manufacturing principles in our expanded factory, and refining our product we dramatically improved the TOPO Series trailer throughout 2020.
To effectively scale our small business, we review our product and build approach at the end of every year to evaluate whether our pricing needs to change.
In 2021, the starting price for all TOPO Series trailers will be $19,750.
This price now includes four of our most requested add-ons which were not previously included in our base pricing:
- ENO 2-Burner Stove
- 11-lb. Propane Tank
- NOCO Genius-10 Precision Battery Charger
- Steel Tongue Deck
Our TOPO Series trailer was never basic and already comes ready for year-round adventure, complete with full insulation, a power system for lights and device charging, a stargazer window, two side doors for easy entry, a 5" memory-foam mattress, a YETI Tundra 65L cooler, rear stabilizing jacks, a ROAM awning, Thule Evo Wingbars, off-road capable 3500 lb. torsion axle and 17" wheels with 31" tires to get you off the beaten path.
But we didn't just add to the list of base model inclusions, we also made many improvements to the TOPO Series trailer throughout 2020.

Besides the extensive improvements that we've made to our product in the last year, we've also seen increases in pricing on many of our supplies & materials. While we always strive to keep our prices competitive, when our costs go up, our prices need to as well.
We’re excited to continue growing our business, improving our product, and developing relationships with all of you. Whether you own an Escapod, rent, or are just admiring from afar, we thank you for your continued support!
