Thank you all for you input. I had a chance to go to an RV show last week and look at the different hybrids. Let me start by saying that the roos and shamrocks seem to offer the best value for the money and I may buy one. That being said I feel that they would certainly be more likely to leak than say coachmen/jayco hybrids. It seems to me that the seals are exposed to the elements even when closed. On the others the seals are on the inside and there is a rain gutter above the top opening to keep water off the top seal.

As I think I mentioned earlier I do get to store my camper inside so I would only have to worry about leaks while traveling.

I do agree with you that the older latch systems like the ones used on other manufacturers seem a lot better to me. Like you I can store inside so crossing my fingers it is a non-issue.
