Much like Tunce, Atlas & Buckeye think the tent ends are great.
Yes, turtling is easy with the slide out. I take the front mattress and put it on the floor at night and still have room to walk around and it's not in front of the table or bathroom door.

Noise isn't an issue for me, none of the parks I've been to recently are party parks. I always sleep with the windows open anyway, it's summer enjoy it while it lasts.

We have a rigid hybrid ( is it still a hybrid ) because my wife didn't think canvas could stop bears.

LOL! This is one of the reasons DW cited for her vote against the hybrid we were looking at. We live in S Central Texas! So I guess it was the "2-legged" bears she was worried about.

Hybrids aren't for everyone that's for sure. Still, I wonder what kind of places people camp where it's that noisy all night? We've only had people noise problems 2 or 3 times in nearly 30 years of camping in tents, pop-ups, and hybrids. All other noises are normal outdoor night noises. Very relaxing.

We bought our second hybrid last year. We had our first one for 10 years. We wouldn't have it any other way. A hard side would just feel too closed in.

The main reason we chose a hybrid was the amount of light and openness when all windows are zipped open.

X2 and that makes the TT one big living room and kitchen in a small tow package. Easy to fuel up at just about any gas station. My post #11 shows just how light and bright it is inside and when we pull into an ocean view sideways it's like living right on the beach.

Does anyone ever run the AC? I don't know how you can hear anything above that.

A/C at night? Not that I can remember. I just open the windows.
