Does anyone have any experience with the Coachmen Galleria, especially the Li3? We rather like this one, and have been talking with dealers about it. We are waiting for th 2019s to come out. Our others favorite choice is the Leisure travel van Unity. We appreciate your input

The LTV Unity is a Class C not a B. I have no experience with Coachmen but It's hard to beat LTV if you want a C.

Looked at it a few years ago.
Excluded because it did not have a propane stove.
I dry camp mostly and felt propane stove/refrigerator was the best fit for me.
Opted for a slightly larger Pleasure-Way XLMB.
Huge bathroom, greater ground clearance, larger, and better dry camping abilities.

I spent a couple of hours with a Coachmen factory
Rep early this year when the Galleria Li3 was
Being introduced...

My impressions...
1. Excellent quality cabinets... really hi-end..!
2. The new Li3 system is an example of the
Future in electronics for RVs... Their’s was
Designed with high quality components...
3. Lots of thoughtful designs built into this rig...
4. Holding tank valves attached right at tank
Outlets so piping gets drained...
5. Hot water recirculated in shower till hot to
Save water...
6. Gen alternator combines with OEM alternator
On engine to allow faster recharging of battery
When needed...
7. Automatic AC current management system
To avoid tripping circuit breakers when running
AC/Microwave/induction cooktop, etc...
8. Macerator on Black tank for easier drain hose
Draining...
9. Robust insulation on entire inside of chassis panels
For improved noise & temp control...

I’m sure there’s more good stuff they design into
Their rig’s... I just can’t remember em’ all...haha

I’m hoping they move the Li3 system into their
Crossfit ‘Bs’ built on the Ford Transit ecoboost chassis for
Those of us that don’t want the Mercedes Star
On the grille...

Well, be decided to go with the Galleria. We did not want to go outside AK to purchase, but had considered doing so until we found a new 2017 mode. No lithium battery, but has the induction cooktop and many other features that we want. Most of all, the price was right.

I had some trouble with getting dealers to order what I wanted, but our savings will allow us to add some things that we would have had to wait for. And, no 1k+ trip outside to get it. Now, to get the work done on it that we asked for and pick it up. Ordering parts is not a speedy thing in Alaska from what I am told.

Loving our Galleria and not sorry we didn’t go for something else. Heat went out again in our apartment and at 7 degrees, it started up immediately. Wondering if this is a thing with the MB Sprinter. Saw a video where it started - without warmer plug - at -28 degrees.

The Truma Combi worked well but took a while to warm up. The chassis heat took a while to heat up, but we were quite comfy after a while. DH had a trip to physician, I stayed in the van for the visit and had things all toasty.
