An Interview with Dean, from Leisure Travel Vans!

This post may contain affiliate links.


The first time I watched one of the Leisure Travel Vans videos, I was so amused, I called Stef down to watch it. “You’ve got to see this guy, Dean! He’s like the Dan Aykroyd of RVs!” In the world of dry RV walk-through videos typically found on YouTube, the clips from Leisure Travel Vans really stood out. I found myself watching them just for the entertainment value.

Apparently, I’m not alone. The Leisure Travel Vans YouTube page has over 2.5 million views. To put this in perspective, that’s 10 TIMES more views than RV behemoth, Winnebago Industries! Clearly, there’s something special going on with these videos.

On our recent RV trip, we made a stop in Winkler, Manitoba, and were able to sit down with Dean from Leisure Travel Vans, the main energy source for the videos. In this short interview, we cover RVs, the origins of the videos, and a little bit about Dean himself. Turns out, he’s the same guy in person that you see in the LTV videos.

Hope you like it!

James is a former rocket scientist, a USA Cycling coach, and lifelong fitness buff. When he's not driving the RV, or modifying the RV (or - that one time - doing both at once), you can find him racing bicycles, or building furniture, or making music. In his spare time, he works for a large IT company.

      Thanks James! The cold temps that day clearly slowed him down. By the way, I’m sure that you’d win the Oscar for best performance under an RV. No one else comes close.

      Before he wins an Oscar for best performance inside an RV, I’d love to see Dean’s video debut from 2009. I tried several Google searches but I couldn’t find it. Can you post a link?
