I’ve been out the hybrid expandable scene for a while. Had a 2012 Jayco that we really liked. It looks like they are out of them now.

Who are the quality manufacturers of hybrids nowadays?

The other question is what RV manufacturers are still making hybrids. Many are no longer making them and those that still do, have shrunk down the number of floorplans.
The best selling hybrids have been Roo/Shamrock and Jayco. But Jayco appears to have dropped hybrids from their 2022 lineup which is a big blow to hybrid shoppers.
Roo/Shamrock have offered the most floorplans for a long time but theirs has shrunk also.
So, with Jayco out, you don't have a lot of choices.

Yeah I was surprised to see Jayco drop all the Hybrids, maybe not as profitable as their other lines? My X20E was dropped around 2015.

Just my opinion maybe look for a used later model that is in good shape, especially with the labor problems I hear going on in the Rv industry.

Palomino has hybrids. Like Roo and Shamrock, they're also a Forest River company.

KZ Sportsmen Classic is the only one that's not Forest River that I could find.

Palomino only has 2 out of 3 floorplans available.
KZ only has 2 floorplans.
Roo/Shamrock has 5 floorplans available with a 6th one Dealsr Stock only.
I can remember when Roo/Shamrock had around 10 different floorplans available, at one time.
When Jayco gets out of the Hybrid market, it may be only a short time before the other hybrid manufacturers also get out.

Thanks for everyone’s response. I’m just kinda surprised that they are not as popular as they once were. I’ll check out the ones you all suggested. Thanks for the response.

Well, Jayco owns Starcraft so it would have followed suit.
