The real, "3 am" bathroom was key for us. I'd not buy the one I own now, knowing then what i know now, because of floor construction. If I'm able to overcome my soft floor the way I'm attempting, covered in another thread, that opinion may change. I have no interest in a slide because we stay so little inside our camper.

We have moved from tent to pop-up to hybrid over many years and I believe we just like the idea of the tent. Most of our camping is done in the summer and we don't necessarily like the hard-side TT concept. There are definitely some disadvantages to the tent ends like when it rains, but for the most part, we just like the more open concept of hybrid. I don't know that it's anything more for us.

We have limited space in our driveway and don't want to tow a big trailer. We just bought a X17A because we loved the floor plan, didn't like the X17Z as much. But that is just a matter of taste and sleeping needs. We have camped in Europe and New Zealand and the units are smaller, and we prefer having the smaller unit, but because it is expandable we have the option of taking grandchildren with us!

Didn't really choose a hybrid. Just found one that had been sitting in storage for years and needed a little TLC. A 2001 Kiwi 17a. Got it for a great price just a little under a year ago and discovered this message board soon after and now we're starting to get some experience in the RV world.

We pop-up camped for many years but got tired of walking to the bathhouse in the middle of the night. A friend bought a hybrid and we liked the idea of tent ends just like the pop-up and with the benefit of a bathroom! We weren't planning on upgrading but wondered into a local Jayco dealer. As soon as the DW stepped in and sat on the sofa I knew we were buying it. We are proud owners of a 2014 x17z bought new last June. Have been out several times and really like it.
