We spent 14 years running about with a Starcraft fold down camper, because we enjoy the quasi-tent feel you get. After the kids grew up and out, we lost our fire drill approach to setup and break down. Which, became quite inconvenient and a tad moist on a chilly August Oklahoma day
About three years ago we upgraded to a Jayco hybrid. The hybrid maintains the tent feel in the bunk ends, while giving you the comforts of an enclosed trailer. And setup is a breeze when compared to a fold down camper. The other bonus, my 20 foot hybrid turns into a 27 foot camper when it's all set up, since those beds don't really take up any space of that 20 foot box.
Really, your limiting factor here is the tow vehicle. If it were me, and I didn't want to upgrade the vehicle, I would stick with a fold down camper. You would be pushing the limits with a hybrid. Add the high profile to a breezy day, and frustration could throw a damper on the journey.
