I'm really surprised whenever I see one of Dean's videos. The video for the new Free Spirt TE is choice. The enthusiasm he shows seems really deceptive. "Look at these two doors!" he says, "How nice is that?" Well, Dean, you tell me--it cuts down on the ability to put stuff where it should be. For instance now the refrigerator is on the floor, and the Microwave is below knee level. Not very nice by my standards here Dean, buddy."

Then when he lays down on the bed. He hardly fits. I think he is 6' 1" (IIRC), so he isn't a small dude, but he tries to make it sound comfortable which it obviously isn't. When he shows the sliding screen door on the passenger side, he doesn't mention whether there is one on BOTH sides, yet he touts being able to eat like you are outside. My guess is that there is only one screen on the passenger side.

The choicest moment, however, comes when he sardines himself into the sitting position on the toilet and tries to make it sound like he is comfortable in what is obviously too small a room for him.

To be fair, I admire LTV for trying to work something positive using the extra sliding door, and I expect that there are a few people for whom the TE would be the perfect selection for what they need. But, unfortunately, I think the sales records will be akin to the SS model in that there aren't enough customers who have the need that the floorplan supports. Yet, in an ever increasingly specialized market, it may be what a company needs to do to survive. Oops, I guess they didn't survive.......they just got sold.

Hopefully the new owners will continue to innovate.

Also to be fair I was REALLY impressed with their B+ Line, especially the Unity MB. If I was going bigger, that is probably the one I would buy.

I wonder if Dean is really that enthuastic when he is not in the videos. Has anyone met him in person?

There's an interview of Dean on YouTube. He's interviewed in his home by the couple that runs the FitRV web site. First, of course, they measure how tall he is. They then have a nice conversation with him. He comes across as a very genuine person.



I've often imagined him at home saying to his child, "Hi, I'm Dean from Leisure Travel Vans and let me tell you how great brussel sprouts are!!!"

I've seen postings and rumors about LTV temporarily discontinuing their Free Spirit Class B's so that they can devote more resources to their Unity and Serenity models. According to these reports, the demand for the Unity and Serenity is overwhelming them, so they decided to focus production on these two models. Can anybody verify this? Is there anything official posted anywhere? I'd like to see something more substantial than, "someone said... "
