The weight difference between a hybrid, and full-wall TT with the same sleeping accomodations is significant! Especially the Roo 233, which has 3 tipouts (sleeping for 6, not including the sofa or dinette). To get that many beds in a non-hybrid TT, you'd need a queen up front and a bunkhouse in the rear. To keep the same floorspace, you'd have to add about 12 feet. That about a 35ft TT, compared to a 23ft hybrid. And to support all of that extra length, will require stronger contruction than the typical ultralight constructions of the typical hybrid. Probably double the weight all said and done.

This will equate to a significant drop in gas mileage...because you'd need a bigger truck.
