Keystone left the hybrid market back in '06.
they came back a couple of years ago with the Passport line. they have some interesting features but haven't been a big seller, like the Roo and Jayco hybrids.
only seen a handful of Passport hybrid owners on the 5 different hybrid forums i visit.
Dan- Firefighter, Shawn- Musician/Entrepreneur, Zoe- Faithful Golden Retriever, 2007 Chevrolet Avalanche LS, 2007 Rockwood Roo 23SS w/Equalizer and Prodigy, and 5 Mtn. bikes and 2 Road bikes
So a Roo Model 21 would be a better trailer than a Passport 190EXP?
I have ruled out the Jayco trailers, due to lack of a second queen bunk.
I am looking for recent used and/or new.
you aren't giving model or year numbers. Roo 21 what? SS, BH, RS?
and what year 190EXP?
newer hybrids have a lot of the older hybrid issues fixed.
a 2010 190EXP would be way better than a 2002 Roo 21, for example.
and only older Jayco hybrids had only one queen and one double. all the newer ones have at least 2 queen beds, since at least 2007.
you really need to post what year and model brands you've looked at.
and just because one brand sells better than another, doesn't necessarily mean it's not as good.
there are way more Roo dealers than Passport dealers.
the Palomino hybrid is a very nice hybrid, they just suffer from lack of dealers. we live in California and the only Palomino dealer i could find when shopping was 500 miles away.
We have an '07 ROO 23SS and have been very well pleased with quality and that it's been virtually problem-free. Surveyor is also a Forest River product, but is manufactured much differently. You might want to spend some time online looking at the Surveyor brochure - I believe the construction information is on the back cover. We liked the Surveyor TT we looked at, but still were more interested in the HTT. If you have not checked out RV Wholesalers in OH, suggest you take a peek. You can check their instock and on order units to see if one of those meet your needs. If not, you can spec one out and they will email you the price on that also. Good company to deal with, no games. If you want it delivered, they can give you a price, but being relatively close, I'd consider turning delivery into a mini-vacation and pick it up at their facility. An excellent OH State Park a stone's throw away. We're in TN and saved ovr $4000 buying from RVW. If you're thinking a Jayco product, check RV Direct. Lots of happy customers on the forum and a good reputation. Happy shopping!
