We currently have a Palomino Banshee SV-1 Popup, offroad model. Over the years we have owned 5 different PUPs. It has been about 15 years since we've owned one and we purchased the Banshee for a 29 day trip we completed two weeks ago. It performed excellent. BUT...I was painfully reminded what I didn't like about PUPs....set up and close up. Add in some rain while trying to do this and it quickly sucks the joy out of owning a PUP. Over the years I have never considered a hybrid...until we were on the trip and ran into someone that had a Jay Flight ??17. They let us take a look at it...that led to drinks and shared dinner that evening. My main concern was, once again, dealing with trying to fold up canvas; tuck, fold, push, adjust, etc, etc... John quickly explained that he uses his vent fan to assist in the process. His little hybrid has a Fan-Tastic fan. He was gracious enough to even demonstrate closing up without and with the fan. Since then I have only seen this mentioned rarely on forums and Facebook groups as a method of closing up the hybrid. Basically, the vent fan, running wide open with windows and doors closed creates a vacuum inside the camper that helps to pull the canvas inward and away from the sealing area. Watching this in person was eye opening. This was his process (this is after folding the mattress and other inside prep). 1, Close all windows and doors, 2, Turn roof vent fan on high (within seconds you can see the canvas pulling inward), 3, Release the roof bow support (shepherds hook) and slowly lower the end bow (this allows the sides to fold in first), 4, Go outside and wait about 10-15 seconds after closing the door (so the vacuum is regained), 5, Fold in any skirting and slowly lift the bed deck and close. He demonstrated this three times and only once did the closing require some "final" assisting before closing the bed deck and that was only a simply one handed tuck of the skirt. He said he typically spends about 30 seconds closing the deck...and from my first hand observation I would agree with him! I know closing one or two bed decks will be MUCH easier than folding up a complete PUP. So we are still headed toward hybrid country...just need to sell the Banshee first...or not! So, I would like to hear from those of you that use this method and your comments about either your success or failures doing this.
