Stef has already written about what a blast we had at the Louisville RVIA show. Well, one of the perks of going to that show is that we get to see things before they’re released to the general public. Take, for example, the new Leisure Travel Vans Unity Flex!
This isn’t our usual detailed full review because frankly, there was way too much to see at the show to spend too much time at any one display. But with Dean as our tour guide, showing us the features of the Flex, we hope this gives you a good idea what the motorhome is like.
The main thing this floor plan does, in my mind, is solve the dilemma that exists with Murphy bed floor plans. Namely: that everyone has to go to bed and get up at the same time, because the bed pretty much takes up all the living space. For Stef (who’s actually asleep right now) and me (writing about RVs), this is a big issue! The Flex addresses this by making a second living area in the rear of the coach (where you would traditionally find a corner bed).
Beyond that basic floor plan change, where the Flex really shines is in its, well, its “flexibility”. You’ll hear me use the term “Swiss Army Knife” in the video. That really is the best way to describe the number of pop-out, swing-out, lever-out, pop-up, and stow-away features you’ll find in this coach. If you can’t find a combination of seating areas, tables, desks, and doors that works for you then you must be from outer space.
Apart from that, you’ll find plenty of
exterior storage, a 1200 watt inverter, a Truma Aqua-Go water heater, and the usual Leisure Travel Vans quality cabinetry.
If you were on the fence about a Murphy bed because of the bedtime dilemma, you should put this coach on your list of ones to consider. Thanks for watching!
