At this stage of our journey, having lots more room for personal space, more storage, a separate work area, a "real" dedicated shower and comfortable, permanent beds with a mattress are among the items topping our needs list. After we left Roadtrek, we had an opportunity to partner with several different RV manufacturers but we have admired the LTV models from afar for years and jumped when offered the opportunity to become their brand ambassadors.

No less than three months ago when they took delivery of their latest Roadtrek they gushed over how great it was and all the customizing they were doing to their new home.

I get it, they are not only ambassadors but are selling a product by which they receive compensation. As a professional I feel they should acknowledge their compensation each and every time they do something with their loaned RV otherwise I see it as deceptive advertising.

To each his own... Their style must resonate with a certain demographic however I find their artifice hard to watch. Other popular ambassadors with RVs on the Promaster chassis seem much more authentic and transparent.

I wish LTV the best....

+1 Agree on the ProMaster Ambassadors

There are 20,000 members in his Facebook group so I am not surprised he did have several opportunities for a new brand ambassador gig. I am glad he went with a high quality company where he can honestly say he is driving a great product. If he went with a company where he had to glamorize a poor product I would have been less enthusiastic about his relationship.

In any case, the more Mike videos there are with Dean in the show the better they will be...

Not sure Dean will be. Disappointing, LTV's decision.

Hopefully, LTV's ethics, etc. won't half to be questioned going forward.

I don't know if the link to Roadtrek's Ambassador program was previously posted: Roadtrek

I qualified as helping cause one sale well over a decade ago and got a check (cheque) and two golf shirts.

The Class B Market share topic - http://www.classbforum.com/forums/f9...ents-2385.html - started in 2013, some time after Roadtrek and Mike's Facebook efforts began. Roadtrek finished at 36.3% market share in 2012. Hymer/Roadtrek finished 2018 with 28.8% share. https://www.rvbusiness.com/blog/ssi-...3-in-2018.html

Does that type of marketing help or hurt .... who knows? Best wishes for LTV.

This is all very hilarious.

I don't know who's more fake - Dean, or the Wendlands? Seems like a good fit though.

I'm just glad they have moved on from the Class B game!

Will their fanboys now say Class B van are junk and start buying LTV class C's? We can only hope!

If that's all it takes to get a free van, what can I get for my 11,000 members?

I am not sure I can respond to that without breaking the forum rules on civil discourse...

That should qualify you for a Port Authority Black Full Length Apron with Pockets - https://shop.leisurevans.com/product...n-with-pockets

Next comes the Cooking with Wincrasher channel on YouTube. The sky is the limit after that!
