I'm sorry, but I think that's one of the dumbest things I've ever seen.
What's wrong with a normal tent for a fraction of the price?

I know, huh? But seriously though.
I have a nice big tent, and when it's raining out it's nice to sit in the vestibule and watch it come down.
I'd be a little hesitant to sit in this cantilevered little vestibule

I think the idea is to off the ground from animals and such, just a guess though.

I just went camping last night, and my good ol' 11-person dome tent was just fine, thank you! Right there on the comfy ground!

I have always been curious as to how those roof tent thingies work, though...

You've obviously never been camping anywhere a hard rain can suddenly make 3-4 inches of water collect on the ground...

No, I always set up on high ground... I thought that was the norm.

Yah, what Jake said.

I've spent many a night in tents directly on the shores of the Gulf of St. Lawrence while fierce nor'easters were blowing in all their glory. Not only is the rain torrential, but the gale force winds and pelting salt spray from the breakers on the shore tend to shred run of the mill tents. I always lay big rocks on top of the tent pegs to make sure they stay put and spend a lot of time making sure my tent is taut so it doesn't take on water.

I've also done a lot of rough camping in the bush up here with and without tents, and there is always a spot where the water runs off.

If worst came to worst, I rig a tarp and sleep in the bottom of the canoe

The JEEP looks nice. I don't know about the tent though. I mean... How often are you gonna camp in the African Bush? Don't get any smart ideas here boys.
