Last year, we took our first trip when our baby boy was 6 weeks old and last of the year when he was 5 months. He slept in a pack and play. We took it down and moved it around as it was necessary, and plan on doing the same thing again this year....although napping will be the challenge this year, because last year we just layed him on our bed in the dark front bedroom and closed the doors.

We have a 376BHOK and my daughter and son in law sleep in the king bed. The pack and play fits perfectly inside the closet in that room. You can even close the doors, but they usually leave them open. We had measured and measured before buying our camper to see if the pack and play would fit in the master, but we finally gave up and just bought what we wanted. What a nice surprise when we found that the pack and play fits in the closet. Now that the little guy is older, they have moved the pack and play into the bunk room with me and it fits there easily as well.

ladun6, just realize that most responses have been from non-Hybrid owners, let alone any 23IKSS owners.
So many suggestions won't work in the 23IKSS.

When we bought our ikss 2 years ago, one of the reasons my wife liked the floorplan was that there would plenty of room for a pack n play for grandkids. Three granddaughters are old enough to sleep in a bed or the sofa, but a fourth granddaughter came along about 2 months ago. Probably will need to take the p n p at least once this year. Even with the crib, way more room than we ever had in the pop up when our kids were young. But we got by just fine.

We now have a 233s Roo, but when my daughters were younger, we had a popup. We used pack n plays for them to sleep in. We would set it up at night and take it down when not in use. The hybrid has a lot more room than our pop-up, so it should be a little easier

We tent camped last year for 9days with out 2 boys (1 and a half year old and a 2months old). God bless my wife!

We used 2 pack and plays that worked great in out large tent with our inflatable queen mattress.

We have since upgraded to a 2016 233S. With 3 queen tent ends we intend on having our now 2+year old in the rear tent end as it has a small entrance/exit(no fear of roll out) and a pack and play for our 10month old where the dinette slide is located.

Best of luck whatever way you go!

*I may try using pool noodles in the fitted mattress sheet to help prevent roll outs as they get older.

Yes the island will present challenges.

I don't have any pics of what our friends did in their hybrid but will try and explain....

They took the table top off the legs, and removed the legs from the floor. They laid the table top on its side on the end of the benches (where you'd slide your feet in to sit at the table) and that created a little "box" for the kiddo to sleep in. They held the table top against the benches with a bungee cord (If I remember right, its been 5ish years) and had good luck with that setup. It kept them from needing the PnP in the camper.

We put ours on the dinette as well. We try to eat outside as much as possible, so the dinette isn't really needed.

Where does your baby sleep?

I can't give you any first hand experience, as my youngest was already in a toddler bed and just using bed rails by the time we started camping and our TT's not a hybrid.

But thinking back to when they were young, if I had one that young out camping, and especially in a hybrid, I'd be using the pack and play, regardless of the inconvenience to the floor space. My DW regales us all the time with a story about how she fell out between the canvas and bunk end of their family's pop-up when she was a kid (actual number withheld for my safety) years ago. Despite whatever improvements have been made in bunk-ends between then and now, I'd still be worried about my little one doing the same somehow.
