Yes ,we have a 2019 Unity MB. Unfortunately we haven稚 been able to do much because right after we got her I had 2 surgeries. However we are now ready to go. Especially when I retire at the end of September.

LTV

Thank you for the feedback. Good to know that there are other LTV owners on this Forum.

We were looking forward to attending a couple of LTV Chapter spring rallies to meet other owners and get first hand feedback about any issues or workarounds about these RVs, but unfortunately, they were cancelled due to COVID-19. Hopefully, the rallies scheduled for the Fall will still take place.

In the last month we camped at several state campgrounds in TN & AL, but have yet to come across another LTV... 😟 I hope this changes as we start traveling further from our rural home base.

We will occasionally see one on the road and it痴 always nice to see another ltv. We saw 2 in Yellowstone in 2018. That was before ours was delivered but it was on order.

I just ordered a wonder rl that should be delivered in Aug or Sept 2020. I would love to interact with other LTV owners.

Congratulations on your new Wonder. I知 sure you池e going to love it and get years of pleasure from it. Our 2020 Wonder RTB is our second Motorhome and we池e so glad we bit the bullet and upgraded.

As soon as you get the VIN (vehicle Identification Number) for your Wonder, you can sign up on the LTV website under Owners. You値l then get access to all the LTV Owners Travel Clubs. You can sign up to as many clubs you like. Most of these Clubs usually hold two rallies each year, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus, most of the Spring events were cancelled this year, but hopefully, the Fall events will go on as planned.

You also will want to sign up with the LTV Entusiasts group on Facebook. It痴 a closed group, which means you have to request permission to join. But once you join, you can find answers to just about any question you may have about your LTV. Facebook also provides a search tool that only searches the posts in a particular group; you can use this search tool to find posts about issues with LTVs that have been asked and answered previously. I致e found that this group can provide better answers to questions than the LTV customer service folks.

Good luck with your new Wonder!

While waiting for replies,Here's another question: how about driving LTV's in cold weather exposed plumbing? Tank heaters? We're looking to supplement our bus conversion with a class B to zip around from here to there instead of flying during COVID. but cold weather would be an issue. Thoughts?

Tank heaters won稚 do much to protect the exposed plumbing pipes. However, I know that some take their LTVs and other RVs that are not built for four season use, during the cold winter months. They basically winterize the RV and don稚 use water in the sinks, shower, etc. They use the toilet, but after each use they use antifreeze to flush it instead of water. And they use the campground bathrooms for taking showers, etc.

We have found that if traveling through states in the South, we can usually take out the RV for trips during the winter months. Of course, we check the weather forecasts and try to avoid areas that are going through cold spells, where the temperatures are forecasted to stay below the mid 20s for days. We haven稚 had any problems staying in areas when the temps are forecasted to drop to the mid to high 20s overnight and go above freezing the next day,

Congrats on your 2020 Wonder RTB.

With 2020, you get the newer MB Chassis.....more MB car like than truck....that cool attaching picnic table option.....that so cool fridge that opens both ways....their highest quality paint and finish without all the 都wirlies....the skylight in the front area....and a garage pass through that痴 bigger than some motels I致e stayed in. I could go on, but.....

Thanks. We really like our Wonder and have takes several trips in it by now. However, the Wonder is built on the Ford Transit chassis, not MB. We preferred getting an LTV built on the Ford chassis.

Yup. My bad. Wonder is on the Transit, Unity on the MB.

I knew that too.

I知 ashamed, and Dean would think I wasn稚 paying attention.

Newbie

Ordered a new unity RL this past March, we were told that it would be anywhere from 12 to 16 month wait. Surprised the hear the new Wonder is only a 3 to 4 month wait. That痴 is great, tempted to switch....
We can not wait until we get our new Unity, looking forward to this new group.

By the way I joined the LTV owners club with out a VIN # just contact the company they will hook you up.
