Leisure travel Unity 24MB

We are thinking about purchasing this model, probably used, and living in it while we see this beautiful country of ours. Interested in your opinions on why you did or did not choose this if you were looking for something this small, any issues to watch out for, mods you made, and anything else you think we might want to consider.

We are choosing a B+ diesel for longevity, lower maintenance than a DP, better gas mileage, and length as our priorities. We enjoy the journey with the freedom to stop along the way rather than staying a long time in one place. We like having home with us when we visit towns and museums and parks. We want to be able to have more choices in where we can stay the night because we prefer county, state, and national parks and visit kids with limited parking. We are giving up storage and interior breathing room and ability for others to join us for travel, sleeping or dining "inside" with us.

In looking this small, other than storage, we are most concerned about the comfort of the sitting area when we need to stay inside and the comfort of the bed. Small kitchen is ok. Large bath is great. Also concerned about seat comfort for driving long periods.

Love to hear your thoughts especially if you like to travel like we do!

I thought I was the only one thinking about living FT that small. I love the Unity and the updates they have done each year. I know you are looking at used, but the addition this year of solar was a nice item for me - want to spend time in the National parks. I am anxious to see the new FX live as it might offer some better options for the animals I live with. But the thing that is still holding me back is that the water and holding tanks have no heat options. They have been sprayed with urethane foam for protection from rocks and such that could bounce up along the road and that will offer some insulation. While I have no intention of camping in the extreme cold I know the cold can often reach very far into the south. Good luck on you adventure.

I purchased the Libero last year and had the optional heating pads installed by Leisure Travel BEFORE the foam was applied.

Wow - I wonder why Don told me they were not heated! I will check back with them - dont know why they could not do that with the other models. Thanks.

We have been fulltiming in our 2013 LTV Unity MB since April 2014. We pull a 2012 Hyundai Accent SE with a Yakima RocketBox on top that doubles as a trailer, probably filled with 650 lbs. of stuff. We have not had any problems with water, water and waste tanks in overnight temps down to 15 degrees F. I have a heated water hose, keep the vanity cabinet door open overnight, and keep the hot water heater on AC overnight. When I knew it was getting down to 15 overnight I would drain the tanks and put a gallon of RV antifreeze down each of the grey and black tanks to protect the valves. Don't know if I needed to but I felt better doing it.

2013 Leisure Travel Vans Unity U24MB, 635 watts solar, 440 AH batteries, 2000 watt inverter, Koni struts and shocks, Hellwig rear anti-swaybar, SumoSprings front and back, 2012 Hyundai Accent SE, Blue Ox baseplates, Aladdin towbar and Patriot
