you're a step ahead of many by asking this.
hybrids are great RV's if you consider the negatives, along with the postives.
a common question asked of prospective buyers is: "Do you love the idea of sleeping under canvas? if you are so-so about it, DON'T buy a hybrid.
you have to really want this experience, to put up with the few cons of the tent ends. many new hybrid owners don't take this into consideration before they bought their hybrid and end up selling it after only one season.
the vast majority of hybrid owners, are former popup owners and want to continue the tent end experience, but with more amenities and less setup hassle.
there's no way to minimize the noise level at night, anymore than a popup or tent. unless you decide to "turtle", which is closing the bunk doors and sleeping on the sofa and/or dinette. this is a great option that only hybrids can offer.
temp control is much more easily solved, by using Popup Gizmos(or the generic versions) and Reflectix.
