What makes it seem like she is in the tent?

I always understood that she was on the camel which was somehow in the tent. As a kid it made sense, now I dont care but still think she was on the camel

Your candid honesty is greatly appreciated.

What would you tell your kid if he starts questioning and inquiring into the story? Or if he comes home with an illustration of Rochel on a camel, and asks how it makes sense?
I've been waiting over 5 years with bated breath for someone to say that!

I'm not sure why she has to be in the tent even if she's not on the camel.
