considering that FR sells thousands of hybrids, reading a few comments about leaks is a drop in the bucket, compared to those who don't have leak problems, me being one of those.
rarely do hybrid owners start threads on a forum like:
"Hey, i have a hybrid and have absolutely NO leaks! Please post if you have no problems also!"
Forums like these, usually attract new owners, those looking to become owners and those with problems.
rarely do RV owners with no problems, post that on a forum like this.
that said, my advice about choosing a hybrid or TT is this:
don't buy a hybrid unless you love sleeping under canvas. many new hybrid owners buy them because of the sleeping capacity or that you can get a very roomy trailer in a shorter package.
not once did they consider the canvas and what that's like to deal with.
you have to love the canvas to be willing to deal with the few negatives that come with it.
most hybrid owners are former popup owners. they want more amenities but still want the experience of sleeping under canvas.
for us, it makes it feel like we're still really "camping" instead of RV'ing.
plus we hate the "shoebox" feel of a regular TT, compared to the openness of a hybrid.
