Reservation RV Type for Hybrids

Just a quick question for you seasoned campers. When you folks book your RV sites and there is not an option for Hybrid under the RV type, do you select Travel Trailer or Tent?

Thanks!

X-2, it is actually considered a TT.

I reserved as a Travel Trailer with my X19H. It is more Travel Trailer than Tent Camper.

I always call my 2001 23b Kiwi hybrid a travel trailer when making reservations. When they ask for the length I tell them, or list 23 feet, but add that it is about 28 feet with the tent ends out. (It is actually less.) Informing them of that has never created a problem. I tell them anyway just in case the site may be on the tiny side.

I'm told that some campgrounds refuse reservations to hybrid tent type travel trailers and RV's. I haven't had any problem with that, but we don't look for high end camping. We just want someplace that is adequate for our lifestyle.

Definitely a TT, and I would list the total length opened. They put site limits for a reason and you don't want to find out you reserved a site you can't use.

You never want to check "tent" as you could end up with something that you have to carry your stuff to a tent pad. Always TT. Listing your unit at its full opened length could limit site availability. During busy seasons, the shorter trailer sites tend to be the ones available for late reservations. The length listed will accommodate a larger hybrid as there is always overhang behind where you actually park the trailer.

It will depend on the park, but I have worked at several where there are tree's or bush's at the back end. When we say a 27" will fit, a 28" won't without limiting your vehicle space. We always listed the longest actual RV that would fit in the space. Don't want to get somewhere and find out your RV won't 'fit on the sight you paid for. Same with slide outs, some sights won't take any slide outs on the drivers side of the RV due to trees etc.
