Bmoore, sounds like your wife is looking for an excuse not to get a hybrid.
because any RV is pretty easy to get into, by a stranger or a bear.
how often do you camp in bear country? Because in the 10 years I've been on various RV forums, only one major campground in the country, has proven to have a permanent ban on soft-sided RV's, due to bear activity. That's Fishing Bridge in Yellowstone.
No one has been able to come up with another campground with such a ban, in those 10 years.
You might research for any such incident, with a hybrid, because I've never heard or read of such a thing happening.
