hi folks Chris Anderson with Mount comfort RV today we're going to do a hybrid camper. I don't do these very often so, but we're setting up for a show and.
I thought why not it's open it's lit up let's do a video on this this is a it's from Palomino it's a. So, layer it is a 2017 model and the floor plan is 213 X. So, this is actually a pretty big this is the big hybrid, if you will still pretty still pretty lightweight though what.
I say. I just looked at that 4340 300 pounds yeah. I want to make sure.
I was right. So, weighing in at 4,300 pounds dry we've got good storage on this. I want to get a good shot of this down here because most hybrid campers have little to no storage on them just by the nature of the beast there this does have a hookup for the fury on solar charger now that's, if you're, if you're boondocking a lot, if you're going someplace other than a campground where you can plug in, if you can plug in at a campground solar really does you no good, but, if you're going boondocking someplace off-the-grid a little bit to live off your battery and off your propane which you can definitely do with this that will help recharge your battery.
So, that's that's what that's for we have cranked down stabilizer jacks we have the Aussie grill that mounts actually on the back bumper it's on a big swing arm. I don't know, if we can get a good shot of that or not yeah. I think we can get that out your grill mounts on here and we'll be out here on your awning side of the coach where you can get to it nice and easy.
So, that's that's how that works the fastback Han this is a two axle hybrid trailer a lot of hybrid trailers are single axle two axles pull better than one it's a little more rubber on the ground and also, if you would ever have a blowout you can limp to the next exit, if you have a two axle trailer you're limp and nowhere with a single axle trailer the stove does vent to the outside of this camper so, if it gets too smoky on the inside something went horribly wrong, but that'll help get the smoke out of the coach you've got a mount here. So, you can take the TV on the inside mounted on the outside there's hookups for that as well we have outdoor speakers. So, you can listen to your favorite music outside nice big grab handle this is a nice low entry step.
So, bad knees this will be your friend this is a huge power awning power on is just. So, much easier than a manual awning and. I know ultimately what people want to see on these is the inside not the outside.
So, let's do that now okay 2017 Solaire and this is the - 13 X Model X for expandable hybrid. So, a couple things here first of all this does have a slide-out on it. So, that's right here it has a sofa on the slide-out that does make into a bed it will do 180 degrees we have a booth dinette that also makes into a bed then we have the master bedroom we'll call it up front queen-size bed they use nice mattresses in these these aren't your typical hunka foam out there that's actually a nice mattress you've got the fans and the lights above you there you can either go a little more hardcore and have the tents open for the screens and have a nice cross breeze or of course this does have heating and air conditioning as well just probably depends on your camping trip now.
I will tell you this the solar hybrids that. I'm showing you. So, now going to be the cheapest hybrid out there you can buy a cheaper one save you a lot of time, if price is your number one thing this probably isn't it, but, if you're looking for a well-built lightweight loaded up hybrid that has the goodies it has all the goodies that the big trailers have then this may very well be the one for you beautiful vinyl floor they change that this year no carpet in here.
So, no carpet that's one less thing to get dirty we have the 8 cubic foot refrigerator not the 6 you will not find very many hybrid campers with an 8 cubic foot refrigerator some of them don't even have the 6, but the 6 is kind of the the norm and 8 is unheard of. So, that's nice LED lighting throughout this camper ducted air conditioning in a hybrid camper again that's a rare thing most of them just have the drop-in units at below both directions this is ducted that's going to be quieter it's going to be better air distribution solid surface countertops and a high camper they build the Solaire hybrid the same way they build the Solaire triple slide 35 footers. So, they don't change the construction technique and that's why this is the most loaded up hybrid on the planet one huge sink with a pulldown sprayer that will help you do those dishes when you have that big pot you need to to wrestle you can do it we have the under mount.
So, three burners with a nice backsplash okay we have storage in the kitchen looky here we have drawers and a hybrid a lot of hybrids don't even have drawers okay pots and pans storage galore a real oven alright now what makes this floorplan neat is that this actually has three fold-out beds on it most hybrids have two some only have one, but this has three you have the one at the front we already showed you there's one back here at the back and we'll let him get in here and get a shot of that not room for two of us back there that's a little more secluded. So, that actually might be the master bedroom depending on how you look at and then behind the curtain here there's actually a third bed that folds out where we're setup right now there wasn't room to open this, but it looks just like the other so, if you like the other bed you'll like this one as well and then behind me we have a bathroom nice stand up corner shower toilet vanity with storage sink they didn't short you anything here it's all there of course it is a little compact it's a hybrid half a 21 foot camper. So, they got to squeeze it all end out here they put storage because obviously, if you're taking a hybrid camper you're probably taking extra people with you that's the whole whole premise okay storage above and below and the thing about a hybrid is this it's not the cheapest camper out there heck they can build a conventional camper cheaper than they can build a hybrid camper.
So, you don't save money on a hybrid. So, why do people buy hybrids hybrid is the lightest way of sleeping a lot of people you know other than a pop-up camper where else you're going to sleep this many people this lightweight. So, 4,300 pounds you know you've got sleeping for two or six two on the sofas eight one or two on the dinette and sleeping for up to ten people, if a couple of them are small in this camper now.
I don't know if. I want to go camping with ten people piled in here, but it's doable. So, that's up to you and going down the road you've got a 21 foot box behind you there weighs 4,300 pounds any other camper that sleeps ten is going to have like a thirty to thirty four foot box behind you it's going to weigh seven eight thousand pounds.
So, that's why you buy a hybrid camper for the compactness of it going down the road and then a lot of people do like the kind of closer to nature feel because on the bed you've got the the tents around you as opposed to hard walls all the way around you there's lots of different ways to RV nobody's wrong, if if a nice hybrid is what you're looking for this is probably the camper for you please give me a call my name is Chris Anderson don't forget that for me. I'm just not comfortable thanks for watching.
