    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Ended up finding a 2014 Jayco Jay Feather X17A. Perfect floor plan for us, plenty of storage plus and actual tub/shower. It's been soooo nice for the girls to have a bathroom for the middle of night. No more disgusting public bathrooms and showers. No more frustrating set-up and breakdown...

    Recommendations for trailer with 3 small kids

    The Rockwood Roo 183 has 3 Queen pop out beds so two of the kids would have to share but it's only 18' long and your Ram could easily pull it. https://forestriverinc.com/rvs/travel-trailers/rockwood-roo/183/958

    Camper shortage

    That location manufactured shuttle buses not RV's. As you can imagine during COVID, shuttle buses were severely impacted. https://www.salina.com/story/news/local/2021/03/11/salina-bus-manufacturing-company-closing/6945496002/

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Yes, I like those 160RBT configurations and layouts. I do see some brand new for sale for $16k but they are over 2,000+ miles away in the mid west and unfortunately no used ones anywhere near me at the moment. A 16ft box would be nice as I live in the city and street parking is very limited...

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Yep, I have the Coachmen Apex on my short list. Unfortunately, there are none within 500 miles of me. There just aren't that many used hybrids for sale with my criteria in my area of the PNW. There is one 2015 Rockwood Roo 17 in the state but it doesn't have the side sofa and they are asking...

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Congrats! That Viking looks great and it's something we definitely would have pulled the trigger on too. While it's only 16 ft, it has pretty much everything we are wanting. We are a family of 3 + my daughter usually has a friend come along so a pop-out on each end has worked well for space...

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Thanks, I've added the Shamrock to my list. The only Shamrock located near me at the moment is a 21' and has a slide. https://seattle.craigslist.org/see/rvd/d/boise-new-tires-2016-flagstaff-shamrock/7257445747.html

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    Can you elaborate why to avoid the Dutchmen hybrid? Is it the hybrid models specifically or are you saying avoid the Dutchmen brand all together?

    Best hybrid models under 19' and newer than 2012?

    We are looking to upgrade to a hybrid trailer from our current Rockwood Freedom pop-up. So far, I've come across these 4 models that would fit our criteria: 17 ft - 19 ft box length, pop-outs on each end (NO slides or bunks), must have small side sofa + dinette and 2012 or newer. Our max...

    Brand new to pop ups and already broke a cable..

    That's great! I actually live in the Tacoma area and was hoping you had found a reliable repair shop for the cable as mine is about worn out too, lol. Where are you camping in Wenatchee? Confluence, Lincoln Rock or ??

    Toilet solutions for boondocking

    For a family of 4, why not make things easy on your family and just get a Porta Potti + a privacy tent/shower? You won't have to worry about spills and using a deodorizer like "Liquid Gold" you won't have to worry about smells! How long of a trip are you talking about?

    Slightly used campers for cheap coming soon?

    I'm located in the PNW area and the used RV market is HOT right now! We recently purchased a pop-up and if they were priced right would be gone in minutes on OfferUp, Craigslist, Facebook Marketplace, etc. You had to have cash in hand, ready to go look at one as soon as it was listed. We lost...

    What kind of Hitch

    I would be incredibly uncomfortable towing that travel trailer with that Odyssey. The Max Total Trailer Weight for the Odyssey is only 3,500 lbs with 1 person and NO other cargo, camping equipment, etc. It goes dramatically down as you add weight. In your signature you list a 2012 Ultra Light...
