After years of watching my friends move on to bigger and better we have finally made the dreaded move to a hybrid. I will miss all of you as it was not an easy and lighthearted decision. Do not quote me but I do think we will be back after time.

You mean to tell us that you actually LIKE wet, damp and cold canvas and a LOT of it, lack of real interior climate control, lack of even basic privacy, your neighbors knowing when you had beans for dinner, a real locking secure door...I could go on!

Focus on the positives...You'll be able to extend your camping season by a month or two!

I suspect you'll find more similarities in the hybrid than differences. Good luck and enjoy the new trailer.

enjoy the new hybrid - we just made the move as well and love the conveniences that a hybrid offers. That being said, their are many things we miss about the PUP.

love having onboard toilet, hot water, larger fridge with freezer, easier set-up and take down, more interior sitting space for rainy days, the oven and last but not least the AC for the really hot days.

Things we miss are the fuel economy of dragging a PUP, the open airy feeling, towing manuerverability, the fact you feel like you are camping in a PUP verus Glamping in the HTT.

Congrats on the HTT. I hope it meets your needs and enjoy it.
