Love the design.

Looks a little awkward for packing.

Can I get one with bullet holes for camping out in the woods?

Nice !

It's heavier than a Home Depot display shed but handy none the less

If you get a parking ticket, ... ... what are they going to use as a license plate number? And no wiper blade to put the ticket under. If they decide to boot a wheel for illegal parking, could be complicated.

Hopefully the person parking behind or in front of the tent is not one of those "That's what bumpers are for" kind of person who uses the bumpers of a car as a guide when parallel parking. That could hurt or even be fatal!

I wonder if anyone has ever stealth-camped inside one of those?

It looks like you could buy a car-cover with a window design.
Add the zipper and frame.

And you'd be all set.

If made portable enough, I could imagine the utility for urban camping, as well as stopping in rest areas and day-use parks (during the day).

I do, and then I roll out before they open in the morning.

Well maybe the homeless will occupy parking spots in the street , with those, and go un noticed... Until no one can find a place to park their cars..
