Trust me Raz had you ever had a bear come up to your tent and stick its face into the nylon & put its paw on your tent causing it to completely collapse with you zipped in it as happen to me (and 2 other tenters near by) while camping in Waterton-Glacer Peace Park in the early 70's you would agree a trailer is safer than a nylon tent when camping in Bear country!
I am going to take a guess that the incident pictured took place when no one was actually in the trailer. If it was a black bear and they heard someone inside they probable would have left. Not that it couldn't happen that one might try to get in when someone is in it but it is actually pretty rare.
