A revolutionary new floorplan featuring an exterior garage with bicycle storage, rear twin beds, an innovative three-piece dry bathroom, and the largest galley offered in the Leisure Travel Vans lineup.
Winkler, Manitoba, June 22, 2018 – Leisure Travel Vans, a brand of Triple E Recreational Vehicles, introduced the Wonder Rear Twin Bed (RTB), a revolutionary new Class C motorhome built on the Ford Transit chassis. The Wonder RTB features North America’s first exterior pass-through garage on a Ford Transit-based Class C, large enough to house two full-size bicycles and much more. Inside, the Wonder RTB’s innovative layout features separate areas to live, eat, and sleep, an innovative three-piece dry bathroom, and the largest galley offered in the Leisure Travel Vans lineup. The Wonder RTB will be available to order starting today, with deliveries beginning in Fall 2018.
“For years we have been asked by our customers to build an RV with an exterior garage, large enough to store their bicycles and other large items. We are excited to finally be able to offer this, along with a host of other innovations found in the Wonder RTB.” commented Ryan Elias, General Manager of Triple E RV. “We think this could be a real winner with our active customers, with over 67 cubic feet of concealed exterior storage to bring their bikes, golf clubs, inflatable kayaks and more.”
Interior storage can also be found in abundance throughout the new Wonder, including two full-size hanging wardrobes located underneath the twin beds. New for 2019, the Wonder is engulfed in stunning Natural Rift cabinetry, offering a modern, yet warm feel. Curved upper cabinet doors add a layer of elegance and are finished in Italian-made FENIX NTM®. The FENIX NTM® matte surfaces are scratch-resistant, anti-fingerprint, and anti-bacterial, making their European design easy to clean and care for.
For pet owners, a cavity beneath the passenger-side twin bed can be converted into an innovative and comfortable “dog house”.
Electronics & Entertainment
The Wonder RTB brings quality entertainment to the open road, featuring two Smart LED TVs, a Bluetooth® soundbar and Blu-ray player. A convenient, centralized touch screen display controls everything from lighting, heating and cooling, tank and battery level monitoring and more. To help you stay connected while on the road, the Wonder is available with an optional Winegard ConnecT 2.0 WiFi Extender with 4G LTE.
The Wonder RTB offers a separate bedroom area in the rear of the coach, a feature not often found in a sub-25′ motorhome. Ensuring a good night’s sleep, the comfortable 32″ × 76″ twin beds can also be slid together, forming a single bed wider than a residential Queen bed. An abundance of easily accessible storage can be found underneath the twin beds.
Galley & Dinette
Those who enjoy cooking on the road will be drawn to the Wonder RTB’s generous galley. A large Corian® counter extension flips down to create the largest countertop found in a Leisure Travel Van. Other notable galley features include an integrated slide-out garbage bin, a pull-out pantry, and deep, full-extension drawers that provide generous storage.
The innovative dinette table features two folding leaves, providing extra dining space when needed, and sits on top of a removable swivel mount, which can be transferred to an additional mount located in the bedroom area, creating a secondary dinette-like setting.
The Wonder’s stylish interior is matched with an equally impressive exterior design. New for 2019, the Wonder is available in seven unique exterior colours. Measuring under 10’ in total height and 24’ 9” ft in length, the compact Wonder features contoured sidewalls, a fiberglass flex roof and aerodynamic integrated front and rear fiberglass caps.
Another innovative feature is the optional integrated side-mount exterior table, perfect for dining and entertaining. When not in use, the table can be folded up and neatly stored in the garage.
Ford Transit Chassis
Cutting-edge features such as the Ford SYNC® with MyFordTouch infotainment, Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, and GPS navigation system make driving the Wonder a stress-free dream. The Wonder is also equipped with a lane-keeping safety feature that alerts the driver when the vehicle drifts out of a lane.
The Wonder is built on the Ford Transit cutaway chassis with a 178″ wheelbase, a GVWR of 10,360 lbs and is powered by a 3.2L I-5 Power Stroke Turbo Diesel with 185HP, 350 ft-lb of torque and 6-speed auto transmission. That all adds up to a smooth ride with underlying muscle when the driver needs it.
The Wonder RTB has a base price of $118,300 USD / $142,350 CAD and will be available to order at Leisure Travel Vans dealerships starting today, with deliveries beginning in Fall 2018.
