What about hybrids????

Hey Gang,

While I read this forum most of the time, another RV site I sometimes go to is RV.net. I was reading from a poster there who was unhappy with his Rockwood Roo. It has 3 drop down beds and all 3 have water damage. Other folks chimed in and the consensus was that for the most part, hybrid TT's have water problems.

I have had my X23B for a couple of years now and I have not experienced any water issues yet. Is there some type of maintenenace to do on the bunk end seals? What do you do to yours?

A buddy at work says he has some type of spray foam sealant protector he uses. I was wondering about this myself.

We bought our second HTT last year. Our old one was an '03 purchased new. We had it for 10 years, no leaks.

Check those negative posts. Almost everyone of them will be an opinion from a non-hybrid owner. For the most part, hybrids do not have water problems.

If anything too often people don't season their tenting when new. If you do have tent leaks then you can use seam sealer. Otherwise there is nothing to do, the bunk ends are vinyl. Also many people confuse condensation with leaks.

Doc I don't think it was a condensation issue. As I read it, the owner had replaced the complete bunk end due to water damage.

Here is the link to the thread I saw:

Had a 2008 19H for 5.5 seasons. No water leak issues at all. And I didn't even do anything to help prevent it. Jayco tends to have higher end canvas.

Not sure about Roo but anytime I've seen one in a campground, I kinda went "meh". But I could be Jayco-biased. ;-)

Last year, we cross-shopped Jayfeather and Roo before purchasing ours. We saw that the fit and finish looked better on the Jayfeather inside and out. Ironically, we first became interested in hybrids after seeing some Shamrocks and Roos and really liked the concept and the back-saving set-up versus a popup.

There has been a lot of discussion on the Forest River Owners Forum on hybrids with leaking bunkends. There were some design changes that were prone to leaking and quite a few were replaced by the factory..I have not heard of any other manufacturer having the same level of problems. We had several inches of ice twice this last winter. No leaks whatsoever on our 23B.

We had a 2010 Forest River Shamrock 21SS and within one year the front bunk door was delaminating even though never seen a water leak. Traded it in for our current camper and going on our second season and still love it..

I struggle to understand why anyone would buy a Forest River product and put money in the pocket of Warren Buffet. I think a lot of people would feel the same way if they new how what political causes "good old" Warren was donating to with the cash he receives from purchases of his companies products.
