You won’t notice this soft-topped 2+-person tent while driving–it has the lowest profile of all car-top tents currently available. At less than 100 pounds, it’s also easy to get it set up, even on taller vehicles. Adjustable tent rails let you mount the tent on most roof racks and bars. Want a little more luxury? Snap on an outdoor shower, perfect for rinsing off the dirt and getting dressed in privacy.
Built for smaller cars, the 2-person Ayer SKY opens up into a spacious A-frame that has plenty of room to sit up fully or lie back to take in the views. A 2.5-inch, high-density foam mattress rivals your bed at home. Internal pockets help keep your space clear and organized.
Unlike most hard-shell rooftop tents, the Evasion lifts up fully so you can sit up anywhere in the tent. Even better, it has struts that take the weight off you to make set-up a breeze. In less than 30 seconds you can climb into your fully ready tent. A solar-powered fan means you can sleep soundly even when the temperatures rise. The 100% waterproof, breathable, and solar-reflective tent walls will keep you comfortable no matter the conditions. Comes in regular and XXL.
Say hello to the off-roader and gear junkie’s dream. This rugged tent is made from aluminum and is easily customizable to become the ultimate base camp.

The tent sets itself up (seriously) and has room to leave your bedding inside when you close up to head to the next campsite.
