About Mark

Meet Our Founder

Mark Janke - Maker and Owner

Mark read about teardrop trailers through another DIY builder’s blog in 2006 and decided to build his own.  His love of simple camping and outdoor adventure comes through every part of his teardrop design work and focuses on quality products.

After Mark built his first teardrop trailer in 2007, he received a grant “The Don Keele Award For Excellence in Education” to film a documentary that details the history of teardrop camp trailers.  The film went on to be published by Amazon and played at film festivals.  Shortly after, another avid camper asked Mark to build a teardrop for her family.

Overland Teardrop Trailer was established and has built teardrop trailers, made kits, and advised thousands of like-minded campers in over 20 countries.

Overland Teardrop Trailer is nestled in the Rocky Mountains of Coeur d’Alene, Idaho.
