Fold-Up Car Top Camper Tents

Great selection of models here from Flying Tortoise Blog

okay, can someone tell me, what really is the point of having the tents up on top of the Truck/Car/Van?

have seen many of these things, and keep wondering why they aren't just set on the ground. Seems to me up there ...
more exposed to wind
more exposed to elements
a pain in the acc to put up

am thinking any predator which is a concern (bear/cougar/etc) wouldn't have much trouble getting up there to those tasty mortals...

-up off ground (no snakes, spiders etc. in desert)
-quick setup time. When you unfold it, tent pops up, mattress, sheets, pillow in place
-good view. I used to park mine looking out at the ocean in Mexico
-clean, airy
-beats sleeping in back of pickup truck
For me, it was the best way to camp in 12 years of (off-and-on) desert travel.
