Funny, I was just thinking that it would be nice to not have to deal with the pop-outs. Never had any leaks or anything, just would be nice to hook up and go, or just drop it and be ready.

Wife and I were at the dealer last weekend and looked at some hard sides and there is no way we could give up the extra room the hybrid gives. Kids beds in the hard tops are tiny. Also like the outdoors sounds and zippered screens to open everything up.

I started out in tents and moved up through pop ups, hybrids and now into full hard sided campers. The room in the hybrid was nice, but we wanted to extend our camping season. Start earlier in the spring and go later into the fall. Woke up one Memorial Day in my pop up, and the canvas was about 6" from my nose. We'd had about 4-6" of snow overnight. The same would have happened if we had been in a hybrid at that time. Not to mention the heat loss you have with the tent ends. And one other thing was, as someone mentioned, some places you are not allowed to stay unless you have full hard sides. Yellowstone is one such place.
Great concept, and great units, given the right climate and location.

We love our little Kiwi 17A. Easy to tow and the fold outs really make it more spacious inside. I always check the seals/gaskets on the ends, and so far they are still in good shape. We have never had a leak (knock on wood) but I try to check often. We do store it under a metal carport. LW

Wow all these stunning sites! I love the fact I can open all the windows and get great airflow running through the camper. The view, can't beat it.

Have you ever had an afternoon nap with all the windows open, HEAVEN I love when it rains too, just a great sound and way too relaxing!

Love the hybrids, wish I would have purchased one years ago!

Yes to all that you said. We're on our 2nd hybrid. The first we had for 10 years.
