What are the dimensions when fully closed? l x w x h? I'm wondering if it would fit in my garage.

Probably not.

It site about 9 feet tall x 19 long x 8 wide.

Unless you have an oversized garage.

That would fit, I don't know about turning it in the garage as the alley is quite narrow. I'll get back to you.

If your alley is flat you can move it around manually.

It has a wheel that goes on the hitch area to move it around by hand.

The 9 feet is approximate BTW. May be taller

Never knew hybrid campers like that existed. What a great idea, best of both worlds.

Is it possible for you to measure the exact height? My garage doors are 10'.

I'd be interested to hear your opinions.

I don't find them challenging at all.
You get used to the set-up and take-down very quickly.

Its warm and dry and off the ground. Has all the features you get in a full trailer with the exception that mine doesn't have an oven.

We're selling because my two boys have outgrown it.

Hoping to upgrade next year.

i had a 19 foot Hybrid .. (stampede palomino S195)

PROs
- easy to tow // didnt require a full size truck
- more space than a convential 19' trailer because the beds were outside the "footprint"
- loved how the wind moved through it when the windows and canvas were open.


CONs
- a pain the arse to put up if it was raining or had been raining
- couldnt just sit and have a coffee once it was folded up (unless you liked the mattresses in your way)
- condensation on the canvas
- bears. some campsites would not allow it since it wasnt a true hard sided trailer. besides, its nice to have the four hard walls for privacy.

Dont get me wrong, it was a good trailer and served us well. When we buy a new one though it wont be a hybrid.

Good points.

They were never really an issue for me though.

Like you we are looking at getting a full size camper next year.

More cause my boys are getting bigger.

If it doesn't sell I definitely use it again next year.

I'll bring a tape measure with me this weekend to confirm but it looks like you are OK.

9'4" with AC. My unit does not have AC.

Could I tow this thing with my wife's Dodge Grand Caravan? I think it has a tow rating of 3600lbs, and if I can read that sticker correctly, this thing is 3500... correct?

The transmission would probably die after a while. Its best to have a bit of extra towing capacity otherwise things will probably fail. Especially if you want to tow it through the mountains.

Fully loaded it is about 3750 so just over your vans capacity.

I've seen people towing this type with minivans but I wouldn't recommend it.

You would definitely need a brake controller and tranny cooler if you were to try it.

I have towed this with my Jeep (also for Sale) without any problems at all.
