Turtling is using your hybrid but not opening the bunk ends. Certain NP campgrounds won't allow tents or soft sides due to bears. Many hybrid owners turtle when traveling, stopping at walmart and sleeping inside without opening the bunk ends.

Being able to turtle is another advantage a hybrid has over a popup.
It is a feature unique to hybrid trailers only.

We stayed at the Grizzly RV park in West Yellowstone for a week in 2002. a great place, especially with kids! The wolf and grizzly discovery park is great too.
