Hybrids aren't for everyone that's for sure. Still, I wonder what kind of places people camp where it's that noisy all night? We've only had people noise problems 2 or 3 times in nearly 30 years of camping in tents, pop-ups, and hybrids. All other noises are normal outdoor night noises. Very relaxing.
We bought our second hybrid last year. We had our first one for 10 years. We wouldn't have it any other way. A hard side would just feel too closed in.

We have a rigid hybrid ( is it still a hybrid ) because my wife didn't think canvas could stop bears.
Neither will that cheesy RV door! http://www.nps.gov/yose/planyourvisit/bears.htm
