I hear what your saying, but I find it hard to believe that it's that common. We just don't run into that many issues with noisy neighbors. We avoid the places we know we'd have issues. Again, that's why I question where people camp. I don't know what state you're in, but in WI State Parks, the rangers don't tolerate after hours noise.

I'm in NY..That may be the problem

But like somebody else said, even quiet talking was an issue for us. I think its being higher up. I like a lot of things about the hybrids, it just wasnt for us

I wish loud campers were the only problem with NY.

There's also a privacy issue. If you can hear them, they can hear you. Another downside of the hybrid for us that that we like to sight see. When were on vacation we don't sit in the campground. We are on the go. I wouldn't feel safe leaving all day and possibly into the night with the tent ends out. I know any TT can be broken into but it's easier to cut a tent end with a knife and climb in. Same issue with my wife camping alone. I feel better with her in a hard sided trailer.

I'd say it all comes down to what type of camping you are going to be doing. We do quick trips mostly on weekends and are around the camper most of the time. The noise has not been as big an issue as I thought it was going to be. If you like tent camping but want to get up off of the ground and have all the modern amenities, then a hybrid is for you.

After a day's slate of activity which may include hiking, biking and/or paddling in addition to making meals and then cleaning up afterwards, falling asleep would be like flipping a switch, at least for me. We tend to have white noise from bunk fans incidentally serving to neutralize noise from adjacent sites.

That said, one size does not always fit all.

I don't get it. Camping is all about the OUTDOORS. Hearing birds, rain, wind, and sure, the occasional neighboring camper next door is what it's all about. If I needed complete peace, I'd be sleeping in a hotel, or simply staying home.

I must be one of those rare few that enjoy sleeping in the hybrid and listening to the world around me outdoors.

This is one of those topics that will never reach consensus, just get a beer and popcorn and take it all in. I agree with the pros n cons that everyone posted (and will continue to post). For us it was the combination of the short towed length (24') vs available inside space (2 queen beds), light weight, simplicity and relative low buy-in. We loved the "tent" aspect.
That said, after 2yrs we traded for the 39' 5th and wouldn't go back.

So where did twodogs603 go? I'm curious to know if any decisions have been reached.
