Our new RV ride: The new Wonder RTB from Leisure Travel Vans

 Our new RV ride: The new Wonder RTB from Leisure Travel Vans

Last night on our regular Sunday night Ask Us Anything live stream on the YouTube RV Lifestyle Channel we shared the new RV we'll be riding in for the next month or so – the Wonder RTB (for Rear Twin Beds) model from Leisure Travel Vans.

Jennifer and I visited the factory in Winkler, Manitoba last week and returned to our Michigan home in a borrowed Wonder RTB, a 2019 Class B+ coach that is build on the Ford Transit Chassis.

It's the first time we have driven a B+ (which is technically a Class C RV) and it's a first for driving the Ford Transit, which is increasingly becoming a popular chassis choice for RV manufacturers. We'll drive it to Florida this week and then out to Salt Lake City to attend the RVx industry trade show, where we will return it to Leisure Travel Vans. 

I'll do reviews on the Wonder and how the Ford Transit performs as an RV chassis as we get more experience with both.

We'll have a full video Thursday of a tour we had of the LTV factory up there in Winkler. But below is a rewind of last night's live stream in which we answered lots of audience questions and shared our experience of driving home in a blizzard and our new partnership with the folks at Leisure Travel Vans.

  • Looks like Mike is no longer a small campervan guy!

    The test drive is something LTV does regularly. Here is someone else’s tour and take on a borrowed Wonder.

    LTV makes nice looking rigs, but that price! And only ~16 MPG 🙁
