The one thing that really caught my eye about the Hybrids is the way the tent beds drop down and dont pull out like the POPUPs do. This means you will not lose any room inside the hybrid for the bed space. It is really great when pulling into a Walmart or roadside pull-out... You have all your room inside the hybrid to use. Can even sleep on the couch let-out into a bed This is also very useful if you just drop one side down when camping and leave the other side still up. I think you have a pull curtain to hide the folded up bed from the inside. I really looked hard between the JAYCO Hybrids and the smaller 20-24 foot hard wall trailers like the JAYCO X213. The one thing I might worry about is leaks around the bed doors but havent had any of that kind of problem with our OFF ROAD POPUP. Snug as a bug... Still havent got Hybrid or small TT yet but still looking.

One thing I did forget to mention.......... I like the fact the insurance gave me $12,600.00 for my 2004 Travelstar 21SSO after a tree fell on it compliment of Irene storm. I then found a 2011 Palomino Stampede S-238 in Pennsylvania for $11,500.00. I had to travel to get it, but it was all worth it.
Hey bikendan! Sorry to hear Lovanox has come to your house, too. Never a good thing. DS#1 is on 2 daily for now and hoping to drop to 1 daily the end of this week. 3 mos on that and then to Coumadin, lifetime. Give her our best and prayers for her steady recovery - when Lovanox is involved, you can't say "speedy" recovery, but steady is excellent.

I'm a people watcher..so at night I love to listen to people talk about nothingness.. I can lay there and forget about everything except the fire crackling, the guy playing guitar, the wife yelling cause dad let Johnny go swimming n his shoes, the campground carts patrolling to keep the campground ( wouldn't walking be much quiter ) quiet, I love to see the stars when I look up.. The rain on the tent ends, the cooler winds blowing, okay everything I guess :-))))))
I don't know that people watcher would be how I would like to be described, (nosey my wife says) but that is something I do enjoy and never thought much about when I'm not camping. Sitting outside at night listening to your neighbors enjoy company, relatives they may not have seen for awhile, grandkids, or just good old fellowship. And laughter. It is nice and relaxing and helps make the world seem like a better place.
There are so many things I love about my HTT. Easy towing, easy setup, the space! Sleeping with the windows open, and feeling the breeze. But the best thing, is that I store it on the property, and have a place to escape too, when I just need a little alone time.
Convenience (much better than a PUP), sounds of nature (like a PUP and tent), larger setup than it is while towing (like a PUP), lightweight for its size (unlike a non-hybrid), small enough to get in and out of tougher spots (like a PUP), able to sleep on the road without a lot of setup (very much better than a PUP), large refrigerator and holding tanks (much better than a PUP).
I had a PUP before the getting the hybrid, and think it's better in nearly every way (except wind resistance - my gas mileage decreased) while still being small enough and light enough to tow with my Sienna and get into the sites I want to get into.
