Searching for a HTT

Hello smart forum people. My wife and I are thinking about getting an RV again. I've had a Holiday Rambler TT, a Jaco Kiwi HTT and an Itasca Class A motorhome. I've done tent camping, backpacking and car camping and I love all of it. Each is different but all are fun.

I've just started looking at RVs again and am trying to get smart on what's available. We sold the motorhome a few years ago and haven't kept up with what's out there. We have three boys age 8, 6 and 3 plus two dogs. We are thinking that a HTT would suit our needs, most of the comforts of a TT while still getting the camping feeling. We like the floor plans of the Roo/Shamrock 233S because of the three beds, slide and U dinette. Are there any other manufactures that are making the same or similar floor plan that we should consider?

That looks like a nice camper that will be a lot of fun! I think I would prefer the Shamrock 233S for our family of five though because of the U shaped dinette and the larger water tanks.

What type of tow vehicle do you have, and what can it pull?

I just bought a new Ford truck rated to pull 9,600lbs.

Thanks Jymen. I'll have a look.

That's a neat setup with the three bunks in back. The bunks would work great for us but we really want a hybrid to get more of the camping feel.

Only thing with that 233S and the 3 tent bunk beds would be the lack of storage space and "0" counter space in a 24' trailer. Aerolite used to offer 2 different floorplans with the triple bunks, but stopped offering those a few years back.

We have a Roo 233S, and yes it has limited storage and counter space. The abundance of floor-space is what we were looking for so we put up with the other issues. Although I wouldn't say there is a lot of outside access storage, we have plenty (a lot more than our previous popup) of inside storage. As with any hybrid, they are meant for a certain type of use, and they are mostly similar in the storage department. We would have preferred more counter space (the Roo 23SS and similar floor plans are nice!), but our expansive interior with the three bunks won us over. The search for what would work best for us was fun, we hope the same for you!

The 233S really is lacking in the counter space area (none!) but it's always a bunch of compromises and tradeoffs isn't it. I've had a hybrid, a travel trailer and a Class A and there were things I liked and disliked about each. Right now we're looking for something that gives us some of the comforts of an RV but with some of the tent camping experience. I think the three bunk HTT will fit the bill and the 233S with the slide and U dinette sounds pretty neat. We'll see.

@Biken, love the pic of the dogs! Wow!

Check out the Palomino Hybrids. The S-238 a pretty good countertop for a Hybrid, the S-23BH has bunk beds along with the two queen bed tent ends.

the Stampede 23BH is the last two canvas bunk hybrid with bunk beds still being made.
as far as i know, all the other hybrid manufacturers have stopped making this kind of floorplan.
