seasonal camping with a hybrid

Has anyone thought about or actually put their hybrid on a seasonal site? what are some of the drawbacks? I am pondering this as a way to camp more. Closing up is easy enough, but what about the awning? I am sure as long as it is tied down it shouldn't be a problem?

I wondered about that when we owned the X23B. My conclusion was that it's probably be OK as long as everything soft was folded up between uses (bunks and awning). I'd never leave an awning out while away, tied down or not.

I don't even like to leave the awning out while we leave camp even for a few hours..Even Manual only take a few moments to roll up.

I've seen hybrids used for seasonal. They always close the bunks up when not in use. The manual says something about "not for long term use" or some such verbiage. That said, the ones I've seen are usually replaced the next season with a larger hard side unit.

Awning---IN, even if it's tied down it might not be there when you return, don't
learn the hard way. The sun will eat away at the seams after a
while.

Bunk ends---IN
Tires ---Covered and off damp or wet earth.
Key #751 if you have that number because many TT have that# for the storage
doors. From that door anyone can enter your TT and you would never
know. Just came from Lincoln City and the fellow next to us had a new
Lance TT with an outside kitchen and wanted to show us but had to go
Inside to get the key. I looked at the lock and it had # 751 stamped on
it so I opened it before he returned and he was shocked to say the
least. Get them all changed out even if you don't leave it all summer.
