These Canadian RV manufacturers are really introducing great products off the Sprinter Chassis. While not a Class B van, the flexibility it offers addresses some of the Class B space challenges in unique ways with a slightly larger footprint.

I was hoping this was going to be their first Transit offering that they have been working on.....

Agree. LTV needs to offer something other than overpriced Sprinter-based rigs. Transit and ProMaster units are available elsewhere with more service facilities and much lower cost of ownership.

Talk about a great use of space... this new unit is amazing. Great for a couple who spend a lot of time living in the rig. A definite lack of hanging space would be my only quibble... and I don't think the "dental floss" (I do love Dean) will work for long term hanging. The bathroom is great.

As to offering lower priced rigs... why should they? They are selling the expensive ones faster than they can build them. Last I spoke to them, they were not even bothering to look at the Promaster (too little weight capacity for them), but were playing around with a Transit cutaway. One may show up eventually, but I don't think they feel the need.

Mumkin, they have a prototype Transit up at the plant with several chassis sitting out in their lot. They were working on some weight saving ideas for it.
Agree though, they are not in any hurry as their current offerings are selling out quickly, although soon they will be hitting the top price point in the Sprinter offerings to keep their volume up at the same point, (my opinion)...

LTV saw the light when the got out of the Class B market. Winnebago is now number one in class B sales. Not that long ago WGO had no B's to offer at all.

Would like to see what LTV comes up with on the Transit.

The Transit seems to be befuddling all the converters. Too much time has passed now to make excuses for it I think. The Promaster is undersized to be anything other than what it already has achieved.

Talked at length last Saturday to a guy that works at the Ford Kansas City plant. Said the Transit side production is still behind on orders and variations that were supposed to be out by now. Suppliers are giving Ford fits with shortages, which has held up development on new option variations. Diesel engine is one of the shortages.
Ford has finally released the cutaway, (short wheelbase version), for RV production as of a couple months ago with the RV option package. Winnebago, Thor, Coachmen, all have C's coming in January, and Leisure has one coming sooner than later.
Class B's are the big ??? right now....

I see the Transit coming out with a Class B reminiscent of the T1N Sprinter which is not a bad thing since Sprinters grew over 22 feet long with the NCV3s.

Without rotating front seats, there won't be any Transit B's. Just C's.
