At the Subaru dealer this morning. Pretty cool roof tent. See the image. And only $4000!
Here's the image - didn't come across using my smartphone.

Hope you realize I'm being facetious.  Imagine $4000 for a tent!

(Hmmm ... image not attaching from my laptop either.  Can we not do this anymore?)
Maybe post a link
as someone who just got back from tent camping last week in
our subaru, we would have been in mucho trouble if we had to
take the tent down everytime we needed to drive somewhere in
our car Wink
I found some here, that top out under $3000:

Hmm tent or bunch of off-road lights on my roof with a spare, I digress spare tire and lights on the roof for future expenditures.
Now where do we put that handy ladder in the picture on the link?
I have a Subaru and I was looking into motorcycle pop up trailers. Light enough to tow and open up to
A pretty nice size.
My brother is looking into this for his impending Honda Ridgeline purchase. Doesn't look like as good an idea as a simple shell on the back of his truck.
roof top tents are made for people who drive all day and set up camp for one night. the next morning they break camp and drive all day again. they aren't meant for a base camp type of set up. you know weekend warriors. highdesertranger

For towing behind a small car or small SUV, I would recommend a tear-drop type camping trailer. Most motorcycle pop-up tent trailers are small enough that they pretty much disappear behind a typical SUV...if you cant see that thing back there it will be impossible to back up. Yeah you can install markers on poles or backup cameras...which might help.

If you really want one, look for the larger ones...but they wont be cheap...also make sure it has the standard hitch ball coupler and not the swivel hitch.
