Freedom II Serenity
Leisure Travel Van RVs have been available in the North American market since 1978. The Serenity has been available since 2007. The aerodynamic fiberglass body almost unchanged in that time. Aluminum access drop-down doors for under-floor storage. Aerodynamic frameless tinted windows and underfloor sound insulation make for quite a quiet ride.

The LTV Freedom II Serenity came with the following floor plans:
From 2007's introduction it was unique as a Class B+ style van that slept 4 on the Sprinter 3500 chassis.
Two options allowed either a full time bed in the back with a residential-style Serta mattress or an electric sofa that would fold down into a bed of memory foam. Even with the 2008 change over from the 2.7L to the 3.0L chassis little changed in the Serenity. The major differences being the addition of a Macerator Pump, a bathroom window and moving the TV from above the driver to a swing out at the foot of the rear bed. The water heater was moved from under the sink to under the dinette to free up some lost storage behind the sink.
Headroom of 6'3" everywhere but in the shower. A recessed A/C unit allowed the van to stay under 9' 6", and still included an extremely large full opening skylight above the dinette.
For 2011 and on the side door was moved slightly forward so the space disappeared under the bed at night and offered space for an additional full size pantry and a small coat closet. The furnace moved from under the bed to under the passenger side dinette. The new sliding dinette table top allows for easier passage from the cab.
Again in 2014.5 the Serenity was modified to match the new Sprinter body style bringing the lines from the Sprinter into the fiberglass mold. Changes included removing the pull-out tray below the microwave, swapping the sink and toilet positions in the bath, which now includes a curved hardwood door. The air conditioner, that had been mounted in a recess above the bed, was moved and the entire ceiling was raised to the 6'2" level making walking the in rear lounge easy. 5 inch thicker roof, full of insulation, was added to keep the sun from heating the interior. With that extra height, and the A/C being mounted on top of that, the new Serenity no longer fits under a 10' garage door, bringing it more in-line with the Unity line of RVs. Extra roof space allowed for solar panels to be added from the factory. The rear spoiler was revamped as it no longer included the A/C, the new rear cap now includes a bigger access door to the under-bed storage, and water filter.
