RE: Leisure Travel Vans

What is your take on the Winnie? It would seem that the Free Spirit's design is proprietary and Winnie has made a blatant copy? Maybe there is a collaboration? Your thoughts? I think I'll probably still look for a Free Spirit used in the future to save some $$. Love this vehicle. No way there is a collaboration. RV companies regularly "steal" each other's ideas. Other manufacturers have also copied LTV's murphy bed idea. But then, both of these ideas are probably already used in Europe and/or Australia. LOL

RE: Beginning the search for our next B - Lots of Questions

Just for your info... GWV is no longer in business. We don't know if this is permanent or temporary. It seems it may be permanent.

RE: Leisure Travel Vans

The problem was that they can't keep up with the orders of their small Class C units. When the waiting list got to between 10-12 months, that is when they suspended production of the Class Bs on the Sprinter. They had already stopped making them on the Chevy a couple years before. So many Class A owners decided to downsize and these are the preferred units of many. Thus far the labor shortages of that part of North America (low population and the oil boom) means that expanding or doubling their production line hasn't been possible. I doubt that they even know if or when it will start up again.

RE: Sprinter with Side Slideout

LTV has suspended production of all of their Sprinter B units, so one is limited to the Winnie for the foreseeable...

RE: Feedback on LTV Unity 24MB

They are as good as they look in the photos. :C I had the Chevy based Libero rather than the Unity. I just downsized from an LTV and you would be hard pressed to find anything significant to complain about in any RV that LTV builds. My only irritating and expensive issue in the 4 years that I owned it was with the Onan generator. (will never own another one... LOL) Sadly a common problem that LTV can't control. I lived in ND not far from the factory, and they held my warranty. The people at the factory are great and stay helpful even after the warranty is done. The internet forum where I found the most Unity and other LTV owners posting was Sprinter forum If you can afford the price tag, you won't regret buying a Unity.

RE: Firestone Vs Michelins

If you are a member of FMCA, they have an agreement with Michelin. I saved about $350 on new tires for my Libero. But they send you to particular companies. I was very happy that they sent me to a place just a couple miles from where I stored the RV... a Pomps Truck Tire service place in Minnesota.

RE: Sportsmobile

Since I've been around B boards, almost the only negatives that I have read about SM have been from people who don't like the basic industrial style... and assume that it looks "cheap" because it doesn't look "posh" as it seems that most of the B market is demanding that. Personally I've always liked the clean lines and everyone that I know who has had one has been happy with the quality of the cabinetry.

RE: Ford Transit 350 diesel

Thus far I haven't seen anything on offer on the Transit (gas or diesel) from any of the usual B converters. Only Sportsmobile and probably some of the smaller converters. If you go on the Transit board, many are doing their own conversions.

RE: B class driveability?

Funny you should ask. I have just finalized my order for a new Roadtrek 170 and when it arrives, I will sell my minivan. For the last 4 years, I have used a 25 ft Class C (LTV Libero) as my daily driver when I am in Arizona for the winter. I admit it was rather crazy, but it got a fabulous 8.5-9.5 miles per gallon, and I did have to plan ahead as to where I would be able to park it. But, one gets much more exercise walking from distant sections of various parking lots. I decided that it was time to downsize... pondered and actually originally ordered a 190. But then I thought that it really made little sense to have my Sienna sitting in a parking garage for 6-7 months of the year. Why not get the smallest RT and sell it? The 170 is, after all, only 22 inches longer. So that is what I am doing. I will see how it works for the couple months that I may be up north before heading back to AZ. If I don't like it, next year when I come back to MN, I will buy another car. I will miss not being able to park in the underground parking garage of my building. Perhaps I could get the condo association to raise the ceiling a few feet. :B

RE: Those of you with older Roadtreks...

Since you will usually be by yourself, I think the aisle shower would be fine. The reality is that if there are you and a couple kids, there is likely not enough hot water or tank capacity to do showers for three. :C You would definitely be using the campground showers in that case. I definitely agree with you about getting the Chevy versus Ford and Dodge... both of which often have handling issues in the older used models. No problem finding service and they nearly always handle well.

RE: What emergency road equipment do you carry?

I opted out of the mail for Good Sam (who owns this board, BTW, Avanti :B) and it was so efficient that I can't even get my membership card!! But, back to the topic of this thread, I have two cell phones (one Verizon) and my CoachNet. And I'm one of those who hasn't had a spare for the last 4 years and won't have one with my new rig either.

RE: The 1959 Ford Thames campervan restoration begins.

Kev, you do keep busy!! LOL Another project that certainly looks up to the high standard of everything you do. I'm also impressed at how you manage to scavenge so much good stuff to save you money.

RE: Roadtrek 170 as a daily driver

I have owned a 190 and a 210 and am totally familiar with the answer concerning those models. Why not the 190? It is only 1'8" longer. Is it that and the mileage difference?

RE: Sterling RV/GWV 2015 Classic on Promaster

I would guess that it has an espar system for both hot water & heat. This isn't a permanent bed set-up... it is a make the bed and get in to sleep. LOL

RE: Sterling RV/GWV 2015 Classic on Promaster

Neverhappy... you should have kept that old Classic Supreme. LOL GWV was purchased by Sterling RV and has moved from Canada to Alabama. Many of the employees also made the move. This is a new floor plan on the longer Promaster. The one on the old website was their first attempt on the shorter platform. Thus far they are experimenting with the possibilities on this new choice for the US market. While this arrangement may not appeal, they are very open to making changes. What all the manufacturers seem to be doing with the Promaster is to try to come up with more affordable conversions. They are well aware that they need to get a new website, and one is supposedly in process.

RE: 2014 L T V Libero

Considering a 2014 Libero. It has a 6.0 Chevy engine and I am wondering if that is adequate for this unit when the van fully loaded. I mean, will the unit do a lot of down shifting on grades when fresh water and gas tanks are full. We currently have a R T 190 Popular and it rarely "hunts". Just looking for a little more room. Also, would like any other comments from owners of these units. Thanking all responders in advance. I've certainly been happy with my Libero. While my gas tank is always half to full, I try to keep my other tanks as empty as possible. I go through the mountains in AZ - put it in tow/haul mode - and while I'm not the first to the top of the steepest, I'm also not the last.
