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.

Chris & Jen Hudak needed a ready-to-go teardrop trailer to serve as their base camp on the road. Instead of spending hours tracking down and packing all of their camping gear, they needed a house on wheels that would always be ready to go. The teardrop trailer seemed like the right solution, but nothing on the market fully spoke to their needs. Any teardrop trailers they looked into were either over-priced or under-built. So, they designed and built their own.

Their mission was simple: create a teardrop trailer that is gentle on the eyes, rugged enough for their craziest ideas and suitable for year-round adventure. In 2015, their vision was born in their garage. As their idea continued to grow Chris Eckel, a friend of Chris’s from college, joined the team to create a logo and help improve the design of the trailer.

Today, whether you’re a weekend warrior or a full-time vagabond, there is an Escapod for you. The Escapod team’s goal is to help their customers reconnect with the great outdoors, and to set them up for the adventure of a lifetime by providing dependable, hand-built teardrop trailers.
