Winkler, Manitoba – Leisure Travel Vans, a division of Triple E Recreational Vehicles, has developed a partnership with smart USA to showcase the convenience and advantages of traveling with a small, compact, fuel-efficient and fun-to-drive smart car.
“We know from talking to our customers that what they value most in our RVs is freedom,” Triple E RV Marketing Director Mike Elias says. “However there are some customers that want even more versatility than what is offered by our compact RVs, so we decided to push the flexibility envelope further and team up with smart USA.”
The concept Unity’s exterior color scheme was designed to match the smart fortwo and will be making its rounds at major upcoming RV shows. Leisure Travel Vans and smart fans can follow the action online at www.leisurevans.com/asmarterunity. Visitors to the microsite can expect to see stunning images of the vehicles as they travel across the United States to various RV shows. The LTV + smart car display recently debuted at America’s Largest RV Show in Hershey, Pennsylvania.
The concept Unity and smart fortwo also will be hooked up and ready to wow visitors at the following upcoming RV shows: California RV Show in Pomona, California from Oct. 7-16; RVIA National Trade Show in Louisville, Kentucky from Nov. 28 - Dec. 1; and Florida RV Supershow in Tampa, FL, from Jan. 18-22.
