The Original TOPO

All good things come to an end.

Bred for adventure and built for those who yearned to escape the beaten path, the Original TOPO teardrop trailer gave Escapod its start. This product will always be looked upon fondly, but new horizons lie ahead. The 2022 model year will mark the final production run of the Original TOPO.

With ample counter-space for food prep, you could put your knife skills to the test. There was also a storage area for a YETI Tundra 65 with a locking slide-out drawer for easy access.
