Is going to a camp ground with a travel trailer camping? Some say yes, some say it's RV'ing. So why can't someone call a Hi-Lo a hybrid without being slammed for it? And personally I would not refer to a Motor home with a slide a hybrid, but would respect someone enough that if they called it that, I wouldn't judge them or criticize them for it. And for the record, a Hi-Lo is a combination of a Pop-up and a travel trailer, the top, cranks up just like many pop-ups.

The things that come to those that wait will be the crappy junk left by those that got there 1st.

popeye, i wasn't slamming you and if it sounded like it, i apologize.
i was simply trying point out what generally is accepted as a "hybrid", in the RV forum world.
Hi-Los and TrailManors have always been orphans. some say they are folding travel trailers, some say they are hard-sided popups and like the website you quoted, some say they are hybrids.
i've seen rear hard-sided bed slide TTs called hybrids too, even though they aren't any different than any TT with a bed slide, except it's on the rear instead of the side.

This is what we own..it is a Rockwood Roo with solid sides and roof with canvas ends that fold out... This is what is typically called a hybrid here in Canada

I have a Roo 233S. Yes mine is a hybrid. Just saying that a hybrid by definition is the incorporation of features from two different things resulting in something different that either of the original sources, yet having characteristics of both. Hence a Hi-Lo would qualify as a hybrid. So are you camping with your Roo, or RV'ing?

As an English/creative writing teacher, you can call the trailers anything you want, but I'm getting tired of all the poor punctuation and misspelled words I keep on seeing. Any trailer that "opens" to be a bigger size than when it is towed, is an "expandable". It is getting/expanding to be bigger. An expandable trailer that has canvas as a roof over the bed area, that slides or tips/folds out is a "hybrid" meaning a combination of two or more attributes from multiple sources creating a "new concept". Sorry for the lesson, but with all the discussions of torques,ratios,weight distribution, etc on this site, I found something I DID understand and had to comment. There are times that 1 and 1 do not add up to 2 for me. I'm good at writing, but ain't too good with them there figures.

Obviously, "popeye59" and I were "posting" at the same time. I, too, have a Roo 233S. We just got it Wednesday and were very surprised with the decor. We picked decor from pictures and the actual decor is very different from the pictures that were provided. We did accept it, because we are "camping" and the decor was secondary to the Roo, itself. Additionally, the Roo for 2012 has been redesigned with a U shaped dinette and comes with a Chinese brand tv included. Cabinets over the dinette have been replaced by railing similar to that over the front bed. Changes both good and bad, but the public should have been told before hand.

We only camp with our Roo however this year we encountered many many more people in the parks at this time of year than in the past. we seemed to be the poor cousins this year. There were many Coaches and huge 5th wheels and some of the coaches were even pulling Lexus's...GOOD GRIEF..who says times are tough... there are certainly some beautiful rigs out there... Michael
