Leisure Travel Vans Bring Unity & Wonder to the World

Leisure Travel Vans Bring Unity & Wonder to the World

Leisure Travel Vans are a product of Triple E Recreational Vehicles. Established in 1965, they’re a well-known RV manufacturer based in Manitoba, Canada.

With sleek designs and clever use of space, Leisure Travel Vans are known for style, comfort, and functionality.

But if you’re wondering just how this well-respected RV manufacturer is bringing Unity and Wonder to the world, we’ve got the deets straight ahead!

What’s a Leisure Travel Van?

Leisure Travel Van has two models made by the company Triple E RV.

The two models are named Unity and Wonder. (Now you know how Leisure Travel Vans brings Unity and Wonder to the world!)

These rigs are about 25′ long and are known for their sleek designs and high-quality builds.

Leisure Travel Vans can sleep up to four people, and each of the two models is offered in several different floor plans.

Both models and all floor plans offer plenty of interior and exterior storage, and are stylish and functional in their designs.

Features such as “Ultrafabric” upholstery, Corian countertops, and a personal favorite of ours, the Truma AquaGo Comfort Plus on-demand water heater, all come standard on all Leisure Travel Vans.

We had a Truma AquaGo Comfort Plus installed in our motorhome in 2021, and we love it. These awesome on-demand water heaters are a standard feature of all Leisure Travel Vans.

On some Leisure Travel Vans you’ll also find options such as AWD, mobile workstations for travelers like us who work from the road, swivel recliners, and even a bicycle garage capable of carrying a couple of bikes as well as other gear (golf clubs, inflatable kayaks, etc.)

What RV Class Are Leisure Travel Vans?

Leisure Travel Vans are technically Class C RVs, but you might hear them referred to as Class B+ rigs.

But, as we noted in our post on the benefits of smaller RVs, the term “Class B+” doesn’t refer to an official RV class. Instead, it’s more of a marketing term to note the design of the rig.

We explained in our post on the Class B Plus RV that these rigs are built on the same type of cutaway chassis cabs that Class C rigs use, but they do away with the overhang you see above the cab on traditional Class C rigs.

Leisure Travel Vans are often considered “Class B+” rigs due to their lack of this classic overhang.

However, when you register and insure a so-called “Class B+ RV” (all Leisure Travel Vans included), it’ll be registered and insured as a Class C RV.

What’s the Difference Between “Unity” and “Wonder” Leisure Travel Vans?

The Unity and the Wonder are both well-built RVs with many excellent features to offer.

The models do differ in various ways, and each offers several floorplans from which to choose.

Unity

Leisure Travel Vans “Unity” model is built on a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter Cab Chassis 3500 and runs on a 3.0 L V6 Turbo Diesel engine. These rigs are 10′ 6″ tall, and 25′ 1″ long.

Safety features include Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Brake Assist, Active Distance Assist Distronic, and Attention Assist.

The Sprinter 3500 chassis is equipped with heated swivel seats, an MBUX infotainment system with 10.25″ touchscreen and intelligent voice control, as well as navigation and a wireless charging pad.

The Unity is offered in six different floorplans that include a twin bed layout, a corner bed, a rear lounge layout, or a queen-sized Murphy bed (also available in a lounge layout).

Corner, rear lounge, and twin bed units sleep up to four people, and the remaining floor plans sleep two.

There’s also an FX floor plan that offers a couple of different lounge/sitting areas in the rear and the front, meaning that there are two living spaces in the rig. These plans offer a sectional sofa and ottoman in the rear, and a Murphy bed in the front.

Here’s a video showing a 2023 Unity, “Rear Lounge” floor plan, that features two living spaces along with seating & sleeping for up to four people and a hidden 57″ x 75″ Murphy Bed, touchscreen controls, and near floor-to-ceiling windows.

Opting for the corner bed offers a similar floor plan, but the corner bed replaces the rear sectional. With this plan, the front lounge area (with Murphy bed) is replaced by a booth dinette.

Wonder

Built on a Ford Transit Cutaway T-350 Chassis, the Leisure Travel Vans Wonder runs on a 3.5L EcoBoost V6 gas engine.

The Wonder is just under 25′ long with an exterior height of just under 10′, including the rooftop AC unit.

Like the Unity, the Wonder has a fiberglass flex roof, contoured sidewalls, and integrated front & rear fiberglass caps.

Wonder models are available in four floorplans, including front or rear twin bed layouts with the bath in the middle of the living space, and rear lounge or Murphy bed lounge layouts with the bath in the rig’s rear.

Here are two of the four floor plans available in Leisure’s “Wonder” model.

The Wonder is available on a Ford Transit dual rear wheel chassis, 3.5-L EcoBoost V6 gas engine with a 10-speed automatic transmission with Tow Haul Mode. It’s also available with an optional Intelligent All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system.

How Many Miles Per Gallon Do Leisure Travel Vans Get?

As always, fuel mileage depends on driving speed, terrain, wind, proper tire inflation, maintenance, weight, and other factors.

Leisure Vans generally get anywhere from 14 mpg to 18 mpg. under normal driving conditions.

How Much Do Leisure Travel Vans Cost?

Prices vary based on the model and floorplan chosen, as well as options.

But, in general, a 2023 Unity starts at around $172,000, while a 2023 Wonder model starts at around $162,500.

Are Leisure Travel Vans Worth the Money?

These rigs are very popular, and for most who choose them, they’re worth the money.

But these RVs aren’t for everyone.

First, they are pricey. And not everyone can or wants to spend that much money on a small RV.

Second, Class B+ rigs are intended for a certain population of travelers, mainly singles, couples, or small families. Those who have larger families would likely want a larger, more spacious rig. Many are on the market for less than the cost of a Leisure Van.

With that said, LTV owners seem to be very happy with these well-made rigs. That likely accounts for the continued demand for their production.

We own a 2021 Wonder RL on a gas Ford chassis. We absolutely love this motorhome even the murphy bed. It allows us to have two areas to sit or lounge and the murphy bed is very comfortable. The only issue is not a lot of outside storage. But we have made it work! Beautiful Interior and exterior!

We bought a 1996 Leisure Travel Van new,owned for 16 years over 100,000 miles replaced 1 air-conditioner and 1 fuel pump,best rv we ever owned. Back then it was a family owned company and customer service was great. When we sold it the couple that bought it couldn't believe it was 16 years old because it still looked like new.

I've had my LTV (Libero) now for 10 years (150,000 miles)and couldn't be happier. The quality and appearance are second to none. It still looks and feels like new. I would buy another if ever need be.

That's awesome, John! Thanks for sharing. It's always good to hear firsthand experience from an owner (especially happy ones... people are more likely to come online to post their complaints).

The Wonder is a great RV with a quality build and well engineered. The downside is no heated or protected plumbing. We sometimes are out in below freezing temps here in CO, often not in the forecast. But LTV has a long wait list, so it’s not a deal killer for a lot of buyers.

I wonder why you don't mention Regency Vans as they seem to be almost identical and are less expensive (relativity speaking). Great quality and USA built.
