Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Up, up, and away. Rooftop tents are the penthouses of car camping, and the Ayer Sky is no exception. You’ll sleep under the stars (but still well above the ground) and enjoy an elevated camping experience. Tons of windows and even 2 skylights keep picturesque views at a max. An integrated ladder means your risk of tracking mud or dirt into your tent is at an all-time low. This model sleeps 2 people, and mounts easily to the top of small SUVs or adventure wagons, sitting pretty while you drive, then springing up and into action in seconds when you reach your destination.
