Smile Have been reading the posts - decided to join!

Hello new friends!

Finally decided to join the forum after reading all the great posts out here. We have been camping for the last 12 years, graduating to more efficient methods of camping (started at a tent - went to a camper).

We purchased a 2013 Rockwood Roo 23SS in 2012. We are contemplating selling it. After a death in our family, this camper is simply too big. We would like to downsize to a HW pop-up.

If anybody has any advice on the HW pop-up, features you like or didn't like, I would appreciate hearing about them.

Always looking forward to the next best time of our lives!

We had three pop-ups before we switched to a TT and we liked them a lot but The hybrids give you the best of both worlds. Consider your options. Hybrids give you the features of both a pop-up and a tt.

Welcome to the forum. I agree about looking at hybrids as an option to a HW pup.

Welcome from Madison, AL. You might just want to look at a regular TT you can camp later in the season.

welcome aboard... to the other posters, looks like they had a camper and a hybrid and now wants to downsize to a hard top. For what its worth, I also had hard tops and a hybrid. Loved the hard tops, hated the hybrid.

We already have a hybrid and we do really like it. Being generously sized humans, the TT's are too small, as my husband is 6'4" and the bed length is never adequate. There is nothing like waking up and both your feet are asleep.

We just want to consider an alternative as we travel often to our cabin in Canada and would like to tow something that is a little easier on gas mileage.
