Winkler, Manitoba-based Triple E Recreational Vehicles, a Canadian RV manufacturer, announces the launch of the single-slide Class B motorhome based on the Mercedes-
Benz Sprinter van.
Traditionally, RVs built on the Sprinter van have had limited floor plan designs due to the confined space of the compact van. However, the Free Spirit SS’s large slide-out, which was designed in conjunction with a German aerospace engineer, allows for a very unique floor plan, taking on similar characteristics to the company’s larger Unity Class B+ model.
The all-new Leisure Travel Van Free Spirit SS is the industry’s first Class B van with a full slide-out front living area and three-piece dry bathroom, according to a company news release.
Stepping into the Free Spirit SS, people will immediately be impressed by how open the front living area feels, said General Manager Ryan Elias.
The slide-out is situated behind the driver’s seat, directly across from the sliding entry door. A fold-down sofa bed topped in memory foam is located in the slide out, which conveniently converts to a bed at night.
Moving toward the rear, the European-inspired galley is equipped with gorgeous cabinetry, Corian countertops and quality appliances. Across from the galley on the driver’s side is a wall of ample storage space. From a hanging wardrobe to full size drawers, it is apparent this RV was not just designed for short weekend trips but can easily handle longer, extended vacations, said Elias.
The Free Spirit SS is fitted with a large three-piece dry bathroom equipped with a porcelain toilet, a dedicated and spacious shower, and vanity.
“It’s incredible how spacious the Free Spirit SS feels inside,” claims Elias.
“It really doesn’t feel as though you are in a van. It has a very open feel to it, much more like a wide-body Class B+. Because of the SS’s unique layout, we believe this product will appeal not only to customers looking for a Class B van, but also to people who are looking for something slightly larger, with a little more room.”
Other notable features include an innovative full width sliding screen door allowing for open air living while keeping the bugs out, and a large storage compartment accessible from the van’s rear access doors. Golfers can be rest assured there is ample room for two golf bags with room to spare in the rear storage area.
Technological features include a 22-inch LED TV mounted on a swing-out arm for interior/exterior viewing, a seven-inch in-dash Sony GPS, back-up camera with Bluetooth/iPod/USB connections and dimmable LED lighting.
Leisure Travel Van’s reputation for the highest quality craftsmanship and premium finishes is clearly evident in the Free Spirit SS. Beautifully crafted European styled curved wood cabinetry, sleek modern Ultraleather, and Corian Private Collection Counter tops are featured throughout the coach.
With an estimated 19-22 MPG and a spacious floor plan to boot, the Free Spirit SS is the perfect touring coach for those extended trips, said Elias.
Starting at $124,241 the Free Spirit SS offers buyers looking for the features and conveniences of a larger Class B+ motorhome in a compact, easy to drive van.
The Free Spirit SS will be featured at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Penn., from September 12 to 16, and at the California RV Show in Pomona, Calif., from October 12 to 21.
