RE: Can you fold up bunk ends with made beds?

Hybrids are interesting beasts... people either seem to love them or hate them, and you will get a lot of weird, uninformed and even downright ignorant opinions on them from people who don't actually own them, mostly because old HTT's were badly designed, but modern ones are way different. I have heard people say that they are not safe (security and bears), tell that to the grizzlies that have ripped the doors off TT's, 5ers and Motor homes for a meal in Banff. People will tell you that you get too much moisture inside or that the bunk ends are too cold, I've been cold camping below freezing and never had it rain on me inside the bunk or been cold. They will tell you it is a pain to setup and tear down (especially wet), hmmm you must be in a real rush if 2-3 minutes is that big a deal. Or that the tent ends will leak, tear, fail and need to be replaced in 5 years, tell that to my co worker with 20 year old tent ends. What they don't tell you is that my 21' trailer has all the features of a TT and is 3400lbs, can be pulled by a V6, sleeps 7, and when opened up effectively has the square footage of a 31' trailer. Or that with the bunk windows zipped down you get excellent air circulation. Or that sleeping in a bunk end feels like tent camping but in a tent attached to a full featured trailer and no rocks poking in your back. Or that you can Wallydock, you can "turtle" with the bed ends up and still sleep on a jackknife sofa or dinette if in a pinch. Ya HTT's are not for everyone and most people would not want to full time in one, but for recreational camping, their weight vs usable square footage and sleeping space make them a good alternative to a Pop up or small/medium Travel Trailer. Amen to that.....We're on our third hybrid and nowadays they make them so much easier to work with.....especially for me who have COPD. Yes, I can close the tent ends with the mattresses My Roo 23ws has no more velcro or bungy cords on the tent end to tie them down. Open them, throw sleeping bags on them, and you're good to go (Less then 5 minutes) The tent ends handles are lower on new Roos The jack is electric The awning is electric Shower doors in the bathroom I even have a private bedroom with a wardrobe in the back. Everything a TT has, I have, PLUS the benefit of a 30 foot camper.....but 23 foot when traveling. Dre

RE: Show your mods!!

That back bunk looks about as hard to get into as in my ROO 233S. Especially if you have any girth to you or aren't very flexible. Once the front slide is opened, there's plenty of room to get there (close to three feet width)

RE: Show your mods!!

Love the glass shower. Did you install that or did it come with the camper. I really wanna get rid of my curtain and that looks pretty slick. The glass shower is standard on a Roo 23ws

RE: Show your mods!!

Here are a few other mods I did on the Roo 23ws: 1- Installed a garbage can in the front cabinet by the door: http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0528.jpg height=480 http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0526.jpg height=480 Installed a mirror in the rear private room: http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0530.jpg height=480 Installed an Oxygenic shower head: http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0533.jpg height=480 Installed a television bracket on the wall in the rear room: http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0534.jpg height=480 And finally, brought the antenna/cable to the front cabinet http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/23%20WS%20%20Mods/DSCN0535.jpg height=480 Dre

RE: Guitar around a campfire !!

I already play a lot of songs you posted, but there are also some that I forgot about and will include them on my list of songs to learn. Great choice folks........Keep them coming! As for ttempleton...keep it up !...........I stopped playing for 40 years, and started playing again eighteen months ago........A great move on my part and a great hobby for when I will retire.

Guitar around a campfire !!

After 40 years, I finally decided to play guitar again (2015).....and it's weird how you still know your chords after all these years. Last summer, I brought my guitar with me and started to play around a campfire. What happened next...... our neighbors asked if they could join us, and we had such a good time. I played some of my songs, they played theirs and everyone was singing..... I'm sure some of you folks play guitar or sing around a campfire and I thought I could share my favorite songs and perhaps some of you have your favorite ones too. Maybe that way we can have more songs to our list. So, here is a list of five songs I love to play: 1- Margaritaville (Jimmy Buffett) 2- Brown eyed girl (Van Morrison) 3- The sound of silence (Simon & Garfunkel) 4- California dreamin' (Mamas & Papas) 5- A kind of hush (Herman's Hermits)

RE: Wildwood, NJ campgrounds

What's your favorite campground nearest to Wildwood, NJ and why. Looking to stay near by for the Wildwood Half Marathon. If I was you, and since you live only 90 minutes from Wildwood, I would make a day trip and go check out the campgrounds in the area. Most of the campgrounds are on the same road. Take the day, go to the beach, visit the campgrounds, have lunch in Cape May, and go back home.......Great Day !! :)

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

I almost wrote a reply yesterday but not as detailed as Dan. My thought was: You only live once.....so enjoy, and have fun. If you start worrying about any or all of the above, camping life is not for you Dre

RE: Hatch Trim

When I had my Travelstar, I used Clorox bleach in spray. Sprayed it on and waited.....then wiped it down ! Another product I use was called Awesome (Family dollar) ....did a good job too !

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

One point about hybrid TTs. The first hybrids were made by R-Vision and debuted in 1998 model year. Other manufacturers started their own, the following year. Those early hybrids had many issues because it was a new design/concept. So dealers got negative about them because of all the warranty issues. So eventually hybrids developed a negative image. But since about 2004, changes in design have dramatically reduced these issues. But the rep is still out there. You are making me want to upgrade to a Roo 233! I guess my R-Vision is the second model year! Other then being a little too small for two adults and three children comfortably, I love it.(except for the tiny tiny bathroom) Make sure you talk to your wife before upgrading.......HAPPY WIFE HAPPY LIFE !!!!:)

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

And nowadays the hybrids are so easy to set up....no more bungie cords or whatever......just bring the doors down, install the poles and you're good to go. In less then 3 minutes, the beds are done.....wow !!!

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

I never had one but my brother in law did, he told me on a windy day it is like standing out side and at night the furnace never shuts off. made me go out and buy a real hard four walled trailer. An hybrid is not for everyone........If on a windy day, it's like standing outside, maybe your brother in law should have zipped up the screen windows !:S

RE: What are the pitfalls of camping in a Hybrid?

Boy ! I too, agree with Bikendan.....well said Dan ! As for us, we live in Maine, our camping season is short and I don't remember a time when we had condensation. Do we have the ideal weather !! I don't know, but all I can say is we are now on our third hybrid, and I don't see the day we're gonna trade it for a shoebox.......We love sleeping under canvas and have all the amenities of a travel trailer.... LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL in an HYBRID

RE: Show your mods!!

Mod #2 Just installed a TV wall bracket in the rear bedroom and figured out a way to bring the cable to the front tent end...... Stay tuned next weekend !!!

RE: Show your mods!!

Mod # 1 DW wanted a backsplash on our 23ws. I used Peel and Stick tiles bought at Lowe's, which have the look of real tiles.... The end result is beautiful! http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/DSCN0525.jpg http://i449.photobucket.com/albums/qq213/Drenjoey/DSCN0524.jpg

RE: Where are you headed in 2016?

Not sure about the summer, probably in the Finger Lakes area of NY, which is where I live. In September I'll head to the new campground at the Schoodic section of Acadia NP. Then, north to Cobscook Bay State Park. I was there in 2014 and it is camping heaven if you like basic camping, on the ocean. If you plan on going to Schoodic, I suggest you make your reservation soon. They have 90 sites only and they will go fast. I didn't take any chances and called to reservation office on their opening day......Got my site! :)
