Hello,
I am just starting to look for a small hybrid....but I would like a slide out for more room. My TV will be a Tacoma v6 with a 5000lb max tow rating. I would like to stay under 3000lbs dry. The smallest hybrid I have seen or heard of with a slide was the Palomino Stampede 195sl. It is no longer made & I was wondering if anyone here has owned this model or one similar (>20ft).

thank you....

Joe

Personally, I've never seen, nor heard of, a hybrid with a slide that's less then 21 feet. When did Palomino make the 195sl?

A slide adds complexity, cost, and weight. Three things a manufacturer probably doesn't want in a small hybrid. Any specific reason you want to go wider instead of longer? Wider might be a problem if you go into some older parks, while longer wouldn't be a problem.

Joesmud,
I dont know that you'll find what you want at that weight. I have a K-Z Coyote 22CP that has a large slide. It's the shortest hybrid with a large slide that I've seen, but it's also over the weight that you have in mind. Here's a link to the 22CP: http://www.kz-rv.com/coyote/coyote_22cp.php

Check out this month's Trailer Life magazine. It has an article about small TT's under 4100 pounds wet weight. It has a small picture and stats on each trailer. No slides listed. The article might give you some other ideas.
