We’ve reviewed several Ford Transit based RVs before, both Class C and Class B models. But there was one Transit based Class C that we’ve been meaning to review for a while, and at the 2016 RVIA show in Louisville, we got our chance. Finally, we got our review of the Leisure Travel Vans Wonder.
We’ve been fans of Leisure Travel Vans and their products for a while now. We’ve even taken a tour of their factory in years past. We’re impressed by the quality of their builds, and their contemporary sense of style. And that style was very much on display in the Wonder. The clean, uncluttered lines in the Wonder really contribute to the spacious and open feeling inside. It’s one of those rare RVs where you walk into it, and then you immediately walk back outside to look for the slide-out that isn’t there. I imagine it would be very difficult to feel “cramped” inside the Wonder.
Besides just “feeling” spacious, the RV actually was spacious. There is an insane amount of storage in this rig. In the video, you’ll hear us time after time after time saying “and some more storage here…” It really was impressive the amount of storage space – inside and out – that they’ve created in the Wonder.
But the one feature that stood out the most on this rig, in my opinion, was the Murphy bed/dinette/lounge setup. Stef described it as a “pop-up greeting card”, and that’s really the best way to convey it. The bed folds down over the dinette without having to move or remove a single cushion. Everything just hinges and folds away. It’s fantastic, and I want to meet the person who designed it because that kind of spatial reasoning impresses the heck out of me. (Also, I want them to pack the truck for us if we ever move again.)
You know, I bet that’s where they came up with the name Wonder… As in, “I wonder how they got the dinette to disappear like that.”
Anyway, the rig is cool, and we hope you like the review. Thanks for watching!
