Look, over in the slide out! It’s a dining room! It’s a day bed! It’s theater seating! No it’s the Unity FX!

Leisure Travel Vans would like you to know that the “FX” in Unity FX stands for flexibility. Got that? Flexibility. As in two lounges – one front, one back. The front lounge is the start of the show. The rear lounge is the understudy. We’ll get to the understudy in a minute. Let’s talk about this front lounge. Just how flexible is it?
It’s pretty flexible. I counted no less than 5 different configurations. You’ve got two chairs, a couch, a chaise lounge, a dining table for 4 and when you add in a special armrest with cup holders “theater seating”. And that’s all before you put the slide out and pull down the Murphy bed.
I tried each of the seating configurations and yeah, they all worked, kind of. They all involve rearranging a bunch of cushions and sometimes pulling out some wooden extensions from under the chairs to create ottomans for bigger seats for dining. The problem I have with all of this is it really did feel sort of half baked to me. The concept was great but I didn’t see any way to properly latch down the seat bottoms and backs in some configurations. When I sat down cushions slipped around. Everything felt a little tentative – like the cushions could decide to slide out from you at any moment. To be fair there are some snaps along the walls of the slideout to hold the seat back cushions on place there but I didn’t see any for the dining and chaise lounge configurations. So as the star of the show the front lounge is a little disappointing.
The purpose of the understudy rear lounge is to provide a second living area when the Murphy bed is in use and it does do that. But, the lounge is not long enough to be used as a second bed. It’s only a lounge. That’s too bad because when I look at it all I see is a missed opportunity. There is a clever little ottoman that slides out form under the sofa. It can be raise up to be used as a workstation. To use it as an ottoman you grab one of the many cushions and place it on the top of the ottoman. Again, the cushion doesn”t attach and I always felt like I was going to kick it off if I wasn’t careful.
There’s a nice galley with a large pull out pantry and plenty of storage both above and below. A 6.7 cubic foot 3-way refrigerator with a separate freezer is across the aisle and above it a convection microwave. I like all but I found it odd that there isn’t any counter extension which means that prep space is limited. Something that I don’t expect in a 25 foot Class B+.
The bathroom’s just fine. It’s a dry bath with plenty of headroom thanks to a skylight. I also like the Leisure Travel Vans recesses the shower components giving you a little extra space while showering. The toilet is tucked in a corner and when I sat on it I felt squished and I’m not the biggest of guys. My head was also hitting a rack above my head. Again this is disappointing considering I’ve been in smaller class B vans where I didn’t feel as cramped while seated on the toilet (Travato 59K).
The Unity FX is a fine Class B+ (nee Class C). If you really want a Murphy Bed and a second lounge then you should consider it. It comes with loads of standard features and a laundry list of available upgrades including stabilization jacks and a satellite dish. The coach warranty is only 2 years which is disappointing considering Leisure Travel Vans is considered a premium brand.
