Everyday Magic!

Lisa O'Maley

Many of us have dreamt of selling our stuff and taking to the road in a home on wheels. My husband Ed and I spent 3 months in India in 2014 and came home to Northern, CA, sold our home of 23 years along with most of our belongings and lots of worldly possessions, and purchased a 2015 Serenity with upgrades. After watching Dean from Leisure Travel Vans, how could we resist his enthusiasm and great delivery? Not only had we never tried RVing or even been in an RV, but we were sold on Leisure Travel Vans and our research has proved pitch perfect. Our virgin trip to Point Reyes National Sea Shore was new in every way, we really didn’t know how to do anything but with the help of so many wonderful “RVers” we were humming with a full hookup in minutes. We believe Leisure Travel Vans is made for people like us, “RVing for Dummies”. We have only looked forward and the magic is an everyday gift. We named our luxury coach, Surya Serenity, after the Sun-deity of India. A reminder of the light of life, the magic of following your dreams and the presence (presents) of the moments on the road! We look forward to meeting you there.

    I would like to rent a Leisure Travel Van to experience if we would like it. Are these vans available to rent?

      I dont know about rentlals. So far I like my Unity alot. However, I would really have liked it a lot more had the coach been fully electric with lithium batteries (with the exception of the stove) and being fed with a 3000 or 4000 watt pure sine wave inverter, instead of having to take it in the neck and replace it myself.

      You might also want to look at another Canadian coach, the Pleasureway, which has some of these changes.

        Thank you for the tips.

      I can’t recommend the guys at Bliss RV in Palm Springs enough if you want to get a taste of renting an LTV. They have two models to choose from and they were super patient for all of my questions while I was on the road. I had a great time and hope to rent again from them closer to when I plan to buy!

        Thank you for the information. We will plan on getting out west to Bliss RV. We have friends out there and it will give us a chance to visit.

    I’m in the same boat today that you were in 2014. I’m selling and donating everything except a few small possessions. I’m planning to hit the road next year and haven’t yet found anything in my research that compares to the quality, reviews, ratings, and stylish, thoughtful design of LTVs. Jumping in the deep end seems a little less daunting with Leisure — and with the number of videos I’ve watched, Dean feels like part of the family — it’ll be a shock to open the door and not find him sitting in the driver’s seat.

    Hi, my husband and I loved hearing your story, your journey. We too are in the process of selling everything and hitting the road with a,more than likely, Leisure Van. A question that hangs in my mind is, What is the real fuel mileage? I know in town travel is more than highway miles.
    Thank you so much,
    Lorri & Hank

      We have a 2017 Serenity and our mileage is about 15-16 MPG.

    Just curious . . . did you ACTUALLY drive your rig on the road out to the Pt. Reyes Lighthouse? We have a Unity IB and were told by the ranger it would be fine . . . it was NOT . . . road full of potholes, narrow, tree branches and bushes hanging out over the road . . . BAD mistake on our part . . . hence, my curiosity . . .
