Don't let negative Internet posts about hybrids worry you. The perceived issues with hybrids are few and far between. In fact hybrids are no better or worse for issues than any standard TT.
X2, I do not worry about a little consensation, I glance for it when packing up, when traveling the matress is standing up and the surface will dry up quickly. It's only surface moisture. It's usually almost dry by the time I'm packed up.

As for a heated mattress pad, we use them all the time in the cool weather. I have not seen it make any difference in condensation. It does keep me happy as I am warmer.

I think the easiest way for me to tell, would be to open the bunk end up the next time we have rain forcast, and, leave the mattress on the dinette. I do have to take it in soon for some warranty work, so, I may just have them check that bunk area while they have it.

Funny, because we never had a heated mattress before, but since we saw it was an option on another 23f we almost bought, my wife decided she wanted them.

Only camped in it a few times since picking it up in Feb, but there were a couple times there was definitely no rain at all, and the bunk ends, especially the one my wife and I shared with a heated mattress, was utterly soaked.

A heated mattress is a BIG no no in a Hybrid and I don't care how many windows you have open. I would suggest on top of your mattress a memory foam pad about 1-1/2" thick, your bed sheet, you, your top sheet, then a heating blanket. I mentioned in another post that I have the Jayco heating pad but I never ever plug it in, I only use it as an insulater to keep the cold from coming up and the heat from going down.
