Did you ask to join the Facebook group for LTV owners?

Yes! I've been a member for a couple of months. I joined before I ordered...part of my research process. It's a great group, even if most of them are all MB Sprinter owners.

Yes, but the coach is equipped mostly the same whether MB or Transit

I ordered my Wonder at the Pomona RV show in October. It should be ready in February. I am having it delivered to Holland RV in Michigan. Can't Wait!

Can't wait to hear about your Wonder. I really love the unit, and the Ford Transit Chassis.
I just sent a query today into LTV asking why they didn't make the Wonder with the 3.5L Gas EcoBoost engine? They replied, consumers want diesel. When the spread goes to over a $1.00+/gal difference, that may change? More horsepower, more torque. I feel the diesel/gas differential spread is widening like in the past, with a far greater margin existing between the two fuels. Gas might be nice?

Ford does not offer the Ecoboost engine on the Transit cutaway chassis used on the Wonder.

I don't much care about the differential in gas prices. I think diesel engines are built to last much longer than gasoline engines. I was leaning to the Ford Transit Chassis because of maintenance issues...probably more options for service at more reasonable prices. There are people out there that love their MB Sprinter Chassis and others who don't. I didn't like anything available with the Dodge ProMaster, and the Ford Transit units are getting more popular for manufacturers.

This is my first RV. In all my research, LTV came up as one of the top quality manufacturers. When they announced the Wonder, I was thrilled to have the option of a Ford Transit Chassis from a top manufacturer. I waited months to see one in person, and I was not disappointed.

Happy travels!!
