This is the most useless article I have read in years. Best for camping? Ok, why? How about some details and not just a bunch of repetitive conclusions?

What if I told you you can just sleep IN the vehicle or, you know, in a tent or hammock on the ground? Rooftop tents add weight and drag and are largely just signaling to people.

I can sit up in the back of the RAV4 or CRV, or even the HRV! But not the Forrester! Your article fails to tell us why the Forester got the no 1 pick!!

Subaru won't get you where the 4runneror Rubicon will get you. Believe me, I just got out of a Forester and into a 4runner. After a summer of camping with the 4runner, I will never go back!

The referenced article was only evaluating vehicles "for the exploration of the nation's campsites" and had unspecified (and likely very subjective) evaluations to "consider factors such as space, appropriate on- and off-road capability, and general comfort". It was as useless an article as this one is.
