I said the same thing in my first post ( when we're done with the road). I'm guessing about a year on the road? Not sure. Tow vehicle is a 08 ford expedition rwd 9200lbs so between 5 and 6000 is my target weight.

hybrids are somewhat like popups, in regards to temp regulation.
the hard sides give them an advantage over popups but you still have 2-3 huge holes on the sides of the trailer.

many of us use Popup Gizmos and Reflectix to help with temp control, in hot or cold weather.

is it as good or easy as a regular TT or other RV, no but it is manageable.

but some may see these mods as a hassle because it does take time to setup and takedown these fixes.

have you been in a hybrid yet? tried out the beds/bathroom/dinette/sofa?
even the biggest hybrids will get real small during a long trip, especially in bad weather.

over the years that we've owned our hybrid, we've taken some extended trips, 4-6 weeks long.
although we enjoyed it, taking down and setting up got old.
and the DW is getting tired of having to climb up into the bunk end to sleep.

We've just begun building a new house, so our RV plans are on hold.
But for the right price and you're willing to pick it up in Washington State, maybe we can deal.
