Leisure Travel Vans, a brand of Triple E Recreational Vehicles, today introduced the Wonder, a new Class B RV with European interior styling on a North American-built Ford Transit chassis.
This new model features many premium options as standard and solidifies Leisure Travel Vans’ position as forward-thinking RV industry leaders, said Ryan Elias, general manager.
“Many people tell us they wish they could find an affordable way to head out on the road while enjoying the contemporary style and comfort of their home,” he added. “Well, now they can. The Wonder is a game-changer from the chassis up, and we couldn’t be more excited to share the details.”
Storage is a cinch with the clean lines of handle-free Fenix NTM doors and walnut colored cabinetry that opens with a push and features soft close technology, the company noted.
The white matte surfaces are scratch-resistant, anti-fingerprint, and anti-bacterial, making their Italian designed looks easy to clean and to care for. The large closet wardrobe has two full-length doors which houses a shoe holder, and a six-shelf rack.
Entertainment on the open road is enhanced with oversized chairs that switch from dinette to TV mode to enjoy shows and movies on a hidden 28-inch TV, with a soundbar and Blu-ray player.
Yet, with a queen-size 60-by-80-inch Murphy bed, it would be no surprise if travelers opt to curl up with a good book underneath the landscape transom window above the bed, said Elias.
“And when it’s time to head off to a new destination in the morning, the exclusive Wonder system means that cushions are magically in place once the bed is tucked neatly away,” he added.
“Any sudden hunger pains can be remedied quickly and easily in an ergonomic galley that has been so well planned it somehow contains an integrated two-door, 6.7-cubic-foot refrigerator/freezer and microwave alongside the ultra-clean look of a huge Fenix NTM countertop with Corian edge and room to spare for a coffee machine or toaster.”
Kitchen accessories such as hooks, paper towel holder, and a dish drainer are attached to multi-purpose tracks, with three self-closing drawers and a garbage bin in the base unit.
The lavatory boasts an extra-large medicine cabinet and recessed shower for more room and fewer banged elbows.
The Wonder’s stylish interior is matched by its sleek graphite silver body with a contoured sidewall, fiberglass flex roof and aerodynamic integrated front and rear fiberglass caps, said Elias.
Measuring 9 feet, 11.5 inches high and 24 feet, 9 inches in length, the vehicle’s frame, walls, floor, and roof are aluminum, as are the cross members.
Cutting-edge features such as the Ford Sync 3 infotainment and GPS navigation system with a 6.5-inch display, plus available SiriusXM satellite radio make driving the Wonder a stress-free dream, said Elias.
The Wonder is also equipped with a safety alert device whenever the vehicle drifts out of a lane.
The Wonder is built on a Ford Transit cutaway chassis with a 178-inch wheelbase, a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,360 pounds and is powered by a 3.2-liter I-5 Power Stroke Turbo Diesel with 185-horsepower, 350 foot-pounds of torque and six-speed auto transmission.
“That all adds up to a smooth ride with underlying muscle whenever the driver needs it,” said Elias.
The Wonder has a base price of $105,820 and will be available starting this fall.
