 What we like and don’t like about the Ford Transit

The Ford Transit van is being used more and more these days to build out small Class B and C motorhomes. Some say it will even rival the Sprinter as one of the most used RV chassis.

For the past three weeks, we’ve been testing out the new Leisure Travel Vans Wonder RTB on the Ford Transit chassis. All of our previous RV experience has been in a Sprinter based Class B van. We wanted to know what it was like driving a slightly wider B plus van, and we wanted to see just how the Ford Transit feels and drives out in the road.

We picked up the van at Leisure Travel Vas headquarters in Winkler, Manitoba, Canada and set out, first 1,000 miles to our Michigan home to pick up Bo, and then to head another 1,000 miles south to Florida

in this video, we’re going to tell you what we like – and don’t like  – about the Transit as an RV chassis. Next week, we’ll do our full review in the Wonder.
