LTV doesn't use any vinyl stripes as far as I know. The Serenity, Unity, Free Spirit and my Libero are all a separate paint color. Of course, this new Free Spirit has no stripes at all... or doesn't thus far.

I assume that EEE is the same.

A lot of people use B's as comfy road vehicles with amenities, not so much for sleeping although they are quite capable of sleeping and even full timing.... the bathroom is a huge seller IMHO.
Looks like I need to dust off the check book.


If I should decide to get a B sometime down the road, that would probably be how I would mainly use it for. I would also like to use it as a back-up daily driver as well.

I have one question though. It appears from the video that the sofa is not equipped with any seat belt. I suspect that this might have something to do with the fact that the sofa is in the slide. Does anyone know whether this is true? As a daily driver, I would prefer that the vehicle could carry more than two people.

Also, based on the MSRP mentioned, what is your guess on how much one actually has to pay for one of these vehicles?

S.K -

Call them directly for an answer regarding seat belts.

I like the fact that they are thinking outside of the envelope on this unit.

Triple E, like Leisure, uses full body paint on their paint designs. They do not use vinyl stripes.


We have toured the factory and they do an awesome job on both the LTV and Triple E units. They have an awesome painting facility and are very particular with the outcome. While we were they one unit came out with a tiny run in the paint, that I would never have spotted, and they were totally redoing the whole unit.

Expensive units, but super quality inside and out!!

The LTV looks to be a pretty amazing little unit. Great bathroom. Wow.

I'm curious to see the interior with the slide-out in the un-slid-out position. There must be some reason why they never show it that way from the inside.

Funny that Dean claims it's a walk-around bed...ain't no way anybody's going to be walking around that bed when it's open. The unit becomes almost completely non-functional when the bed is down...too bad.

I would say that typical of walk-around beds in a Class B, one must be small and agile. More of a squeeze around than a stride around...

From the floorplan, it looks like there is very little space (6"?) between the bed and cabinet, and between the bed and the passenger seat. They tend to show the bed down with door open, so it looks like there is more room.

Is it also offered in the extended Sprinter? This new unit would be great with a couple more feet. They couldn't widen the bed, but they could perhaps have a larger fridge.
