2022 has come and gone. This year was a big year, and we experienced many exciting events and some loss, but above all, we continue to thrive because of our amazing community. As we now have 2022 in our rearview mirror, we want to take you on the journey of what it was like through our windshield.
As a gift to you this year, we want you to enjoy a Holiday-themed desktop from Leisure Travel Vans. There are multiple sizes available. Simply select the one you’re after, download, and enjoy! Click here to get your LTV desktop image.
The All-New Murphy Bed Lounge
Live from America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, PA, we “twin” launched the new Murphy Bed Lounge models, available on both our Unity and Wonder product lines. What makes the all-new Murphy Bed Lounge models shine is the completely redesigned and patented Leisure Lounge system, which features upgraded dual reclining chairs, an updated dinette table system, and a large, panoramic window, drawing in an abundance of natural light in both day and night modes.
Other notable changes include the relocated entry door, two relocated hanging wardrobes that feature adjustable and removable shelving, giving you the most flexibility in your space. The pantry has also been relocated. In the slide-out, an innovative folding mechanism built into the Murphy Bed reveals a large panoramic window, drawing in additional natural light to the front living area. Be sure to build & price your Murphy Bed Lounge to be part of the excitement behind the pioneer, reimagined.
The Return of the Annual Fall Rally
September 7-10, 2022, was the week many LTV owners had been anticipating for three years. Our Annual Fall Rally was finally back this year at Winkler Bible Camp. We enjoyed all sorts of different activities, from factory tours, seminars, cider, coffee tasting, cooking demos, great food, and even archery and zip-lining! Our 2022 Annual Fall Rally was a huge hit, and we are so excited to begin planning the Rally for 2023. We will be releasing the lottery to attend the 2023 Rally later this month! Stay tuned for more information, but while you’re at it, you can read about all the amazing fun we had in 2022.
The Leisure List
Throughout the year, we like to curate lists that RV owners can reference to plan their travels. This past year we delivered a Hiking Trails series as well as a Boondocking and Off-Grid Campsite Guide. Each of these lists brought a multitude of submissions from LTV owners and camping enthusiasts like you, and we are so grateful! As you go about your travels in the new year, we encourage you to reference our Leisure Lists.
A Decade of DSI
We received the RVDA DSI Quality Circle Award for the tenth year in a row. This is an award that was handed out to nine motorized RV manufacturers for achieving the highest scores in the RVDA’s 28th Annual Dealer Satisfaction Index (DSI) survey.
It’s a team effort to reach our goals, and it’s only possible with the help of our amazing community of employees, dealers, suppliers, and customers. We want to thank you for your support and ongoing commitment to Triple E RV and Leisure Travel Vans throughout the years.
The Best Blog Post of 2022
Every week throughout the year, we publish a new blog post. The majority of our content is created by our very own Leisure Explorers Team. In 2022, the best-performing blog post was Best Tow Vehicle for a Leisure Travel Van by Leisure Explorers Team members, Brandon and Janet Hensley.
This story takes you through the journey of determining which vehicle you can tow behind your Leisure Travel Van and includes lots of information about how you should select the best TOAD. Brandon compares multiple makes and models of cars, including the new 2022 Ford Maverick compact pickup truck.
We do want to remind you that the recommendations and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author(s) and are not necessarily those of Leisure Travel Vans. Please always refer to your motorhome or chassis owner’s manuals and hitch ratings for further information regarding your towing capacities and limitations.
In August, employees of Leisure Travel Vans and their families were invited to spend an evening at the fairgrounds of our local Harvest Festival. We were able to enjoy amazing food from our local Spenst Brothers and spend the evening enjoying the rides and all-you-can-eat candy apples, mini donuts, popcorn, and cotton candy! It’s safe to say that this is a highlight that many of our employees look forward to all year, and it’s another way we like to say thank you for all of their hard work.
In Loving Memory
In September, we lost our dear friend and colleague, Wally Neufeld. Wally’s warm, witty presence is dearly missed by the LTV team, dealer network, and customers. Wally joined the company in late 2019 as a Territory Sales Manager however had previously been with LTV from 2003 to 2009.
We hope you had a very Merry Christmas, and we want to wish you safe travels and all the best in 2023. Finally, enjoy a Christmas and year-in-review video from all of us at Leisure Travel Vans.
