Noise?

Looked at hybrids at the last RV show found a model we both liked, my concern is noise from inside or out?

Do you consider birds singing as "noise?"

Seriously, 20 yrs in a popup and 3 in a hybrid, noise was never a major issue.

Since the majority of hybrids are former popup owners, we are very familiar with the pros and cons of canvas.
Hybrids are better at reducing noise than popups, but not as good as hard sided RVs.

For us, being able to hear the sounds of nature are worth putting up with the occasional negative noises.
Birds singing, creeks babbling, wind in the trees and so on.
A traditional Travel Trailer is like a sealed up shoebox.

If you want " living room" sound isolation, don't buy a hybrid or pop up. They are for people who enjoy the sounds of the forest, the streams, the wildlife. And don't mind the occasional crying kid or barking dog.

First congrats Bill on the maiden voyage and glad all things are as they should be with the Roo.

Secondly, in response to the noise and hybrids, they are also for people who dont mind the occaisional ruckus and noise coming out of the 5ers and tin cans around them. Those things are nowhere near as soundproof as people think they are. Laying at night with bunk windows zipped open its amazing what you can hear at times.

How do you highlight and repost comments that you want to address?

Anyway, I second 54554wis! I am also picking up our 23WS on the 27th. I'm driving 1300 Mikes each way, so I'm glad to hear it was a pleasure to tow. Congratulations on your first trip!

Here too. I just finished flushing the water system of my new 23ws... All the antifreeze is out now, the tent ends wetted ( no leaks yeah) and she is just about ready to camp but Mother's day weekend is our first trip. We are soooo looking forward to the inaugural trip.
