I understand your concern.
Naturally, bears hunt in the daytime and not at night. An exception is Yosemite where the bears find humans leave food out at night. Even in Yosemite where the bears have acclimated to people (and see them as a source of food) and know how to break into cars, they don't bother RV's or SMB's. They look in the window to see something that looks like food, then they either pull the windshield out or pull the door frame out to get inside. If they don't see food, they don't bother it.
We sleep in the penthouse in many bear places, from Yosemite to Alaska, and never a hint of a problem.
In Alaska we had some bear training and learned that bears go after humans in specific circumstances:
- Get between a mother and her cubs
- Get between a bear and his food source
- Smell like food to a hungry bear Don't carry food in your pocket.
- Run or move quickly and a bear may chase you to find out why you are running and if you taste good. You could be a fawn or??
Sleeping in the penthouse is not something we worry about anymore. Well, not about bears anyway. 2 legged critters are another issue.
