Her main "point" was that the kids will feel it to be more like tent camping because of the pop outs....
Anyway, I was wondering what your advice and thoughts were. For those of you who have owned Hybrid, do you see yourself wishing for a traditional travel trailer in the near future? Does it feel too "cramped" inside? How about the pop outs---are they warm enough? How about moisture with those that have canvas siding?
Any other considerations?
I've owned campers with canvas in the past. It was our entry level camper. I can only say from our own experience, the jayflight was an upgrade (Jayflight isn't an ultra light that I know of)
There's no reason you can't take a tent along. We do... it seldom gets used, but it's there when the tent experience is ideal. My best friend had a bear rip through his canvas doing an amazing amount of damage. I'm sure that's rare... but maybe food for though as far as overall 'security' concerns... both 2 and 4 legged varieties.
