Leisure Travel LTV new Motorhomes outgas?

We are looking at LTV motorhomes and wanted to learn if and how much other owners encountered levels or formaldehyde and VOCs in their LTV coaches.

Watching videos, I see they use block foam instead of fiberglass batts and they screw all the furniture together insteal glueing using real wood. This indicates an advantage over SOBs.

Would appreciate any input from owners - thanks

Formaldehyde based glues hasn't been used in RVs in a number of years. And since everyone has switched to low VOC finishes, this doesn't seem to be a problem either. I would think you would get more out gassing from vinyl based furniture coverings than you might from finishes used.

If you are super sensitive to these items, go sit in a new unit and see if anything is going to bother you.
