Welcome and congrats!!
We too just went from a pop up to a hybrid - picked up our new Forest River Solaire 163x on Wednesday night.
We loved our pop-up - so easy to haul and set up.
The hybrids are great for us - we like to take weekend trips - take off Friday after work and come home Sunday afternoon - need something nice and easy to pull and set up for a short trip. Also, when we do take more time off work, we like to stay a few days here and a few days there - the hybrid is so light - moving from place to place is a breeze and doesn't cost us a fortune in fuel.
Unfortunately, camping season is mostly at an end up here in PA where we live so other than my boyfriend maybe taking it on a few hunting trips, it will be put in storage and covered for the winter.
I do plan on visiting it at least once a week however, don't want it to get lonely.
