Mike Haugen - RV Sales Consultant

Call me at 641-585-3213 or send me an e-mail at

Hi! My name is Mike Haugen and I am a Sales Consultant at Lichtsinn RV. I was raised in Forest City and have lived in town nearly most of my life, minus college. While growing up, I worked for my family’s construction company. My wife and I have chosen to continue to live in Forest City where we are raising two children; a boy and a girl. Both of my kids are active with extracurricular where my wife and I help coach the sports they are involved in.

Reviews from Mike's Guests

"When it comes to RV dealerships you will not find a better operation than Lichtsinn RV. My wife and I are the happy owners of a brand new Winnebago Vista 29V purchased from Lichtsinn. Mike Haugen our sales rep, Kevin Breister our finance person and Cade Christensen our service rep are great people; easy to get along with and always ready to help. We live in Phoenix Arizona and Lichtsinn is the dealership we chose to do business with and that really says a lot the operation and the people working there along with the owner."

Vic & Brenda from Fort McDowell, AZ

"The entire Lichtsinn staff, especially Mike Haugan and Jeremy Gilbertson, did an excellent job educating us before our 1900-mile trip back to Oregon. Both were pleasant and their technical expertise superb. Unfortunately, the distance to Forest City from our home may limit our visit back to Lichtsinn. Thank you all!!"

Betty & Fred from Bend, OR

"Great customer service through and after the sale. Took a while to get our Ekkocello; but well worth the wait! Mike had our Ekko plugged in and heated when we went to pick it up so we could spend the night in it (and since they are closed on Sunday). Highly recommend!"

Doug & Lisa from Blacksburg, VA

"A fabulous experience with Mike and Jeremy and everyone else. Everyone was so friendly and helpful!!!! We are enjoying our Ekko as we drive the 1,780 miles home. Thank you Lichtsinn RV!

Fred & Betty from Bend, OR

"We had an excellent salesperson to work with and are very happy with the new View that we purchased! Winnebago Industries holds a special place in my heart, leading us to choose Lichtsinn RV for trading in our 2013 View. For nearly a year, Mike H. persevered in helping us find the perfect fit, ending with a deal for a new View, not just another used RV. Kevin B. was instrumental in obtaining the best financing, fighting for the bank I wanted. Bottom line, the folks at Lichtsinn are persistent in their efforts to find what their customer wants. We are happy we followed our instinct to trade up with them!

"Mike made sure everything was done to my satisfaction.

"This was easily the best dealer experience we’ve ever had. My wife and I were in the market for a used Winnebago Revel. After we called to inquire about one they had online, the one we wanted already had a a deposit on it which was disappointing. But they were able to get us in a BRAND NEW one for a really good price! They are really close to the Winnebago factory so I assume they move so many of these units to the point where they can offer people great prices. You will have to make a 5k deposit to hold the vehicle for you, which means you have to be serious about buying, and we definitely were so it wasn’t a problem. Just expect that and know that it’s non refundable. They are very transparent about it though!

Additionally, Mike, Brandon, and Jeremy were all extremely helpful in the entire process. From the initial deal, to the financing, and then orientation with the vehicle, it was a very easy and pleasant experience. Not once did we feel pressured or frustrated or any of those “dealership feelings” that you would normally get.

We highly recommend giving this place a call. You will not regret it and we are in love with our new Revel!

Jarrod from Denver, CO

"We had a great experience with Mike Haugen at Lichtsinn RV right from the first phone call! He was so very attentive and gave us a lot of great guidance to help us make the best of decisions in the purchase of our 23 Revel. We were happy to spend the night before receiving a great orientation by Chris! There is something about buying a Winnebago right near the factory and from this long time family owned dealership that made a big difference for us. Bandon, who helped us to finish our purchasing and getting all necessary paperwork was impeccable. We are so happy we met Justin who has offered to help us any time we may need it. It was a pleasure and a nice "touch" to meet Ron, the owner, who is a down to earth kind of guy. We are so glad to be a part of the Lichtsinn RV "Revel Family.

Michelle from Estes Park, CO

"Based on my experience (visited the dealership a few years ago and recently purchased a Winnebago from them) I highly recommend Mike Haugen in sales and have been thoroughly impressed with the people I've dealt with from orientation, parts, and follow up. From my perspective, it was definitely worth flying in from the west coast and then driving back. From everything I've seen and encountered, I can't say enough positive things about them and, if I ever purchase another RV, Mike and Lichtsinn would definitely be my first choice.

Joseph from Corvallis, OR

"Best experience I have ever had buying a vehicle. Mike Haugen and everyone at Lichtsinn were great to work with.

Dale from Spokane, WA

"Can't thank the team at Lichtsinn RV enough! They made my first camper purchase smooth and easy. Mike Haugen was my dealer and his communication was top notch. Buying a camper out of state can seem daunting but Mike did a great job rallying his team to help my wife and I through the process. Every touch point was 5 stars! If you are looking to make an investment in Winnebago look no further than Lichtsinn RV as the place to purchase!

Joe and Hannah from Arvada, CO

"We recently purchased a new 2023 Winnebago Navion 24D and traded in our 2017 View 24G at Lichtsinn RV…and we could not be happier. The Navion was spotless and perfectly presented at delivery. The price for our trade was exactly in line with the current market and saved us the hassle of selling it ourselves. The package of forms put together for us made the title/registration process in North Carolina super easy. Equally important to all of this was the sales/purchase process - such friendly, professional and efficient all around. A sincere thanks to the dealership and in particular, Mike our salesperson, Brandon in finance, Jamie the title clerk, Jay in service, Chris for an incredibly thorough orientation and Ron Lichtsinn for stopping by to say hello. Such nice people. Cheers!

Tim from Wilmington, NC

"The entire purchase process on the day of delivery was easy, straight forward and efficient. Mike and all the Lichtsinn RV staff was polite, professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable. Our new Navion was very clean, functional, and set to go.

Tim from Snohomish, WA

"Big thanks to all the staff at Lichtsinn! Flew out from Northern California to purchase our 2022 Vista 27P. Everything from the initial call to inquire about the unit to completing the purchase was smooth with no surprises. They even let us use a courtesy car to shop for item's for the trip home. Can't say enough positive about Mike, Brandon, Logan, Justin and Gary. Definitely recommend.

Derek from Lake Almanor, CA

"The sale and Mike were great. Mike was very responsive and answered all our questions, much appreciated. Even though we live in AL the entire process was easy!! Brandon did a great job on the finance closing end and Kevin worked the paperwork, both are great. Ashley was wonderful and we had a lot of fun with the photos. I highly recommend Lichtsinn RV if you are looking at buying and they really make it easy for out of town folks, professional and personable. Thanks for making the process painless and enjoyable!!

Nancy from Opelika, AL

"Mike did an excellent job on communicating all available options to be added to our Revel, we ordered and installed all items prior to delivery.

Steve from Shrewsbury, MA

"Lichtsinn did a great job both before and after our purchase. Mike was wonderful, very quick to respond to questions and quite helpful in all sorts of ways and accommodated us with our quirky schedule and shopping preferences. We save quite a few thousands of dollars compared to other dealers for the same vehicle, with a quick rock-bottom price quote. It was well worth the trip from Colorado.

Brian from Florissant, CO

"This is our first RV purchase. We have been long time tent campers and want to start traveling and camping in a little bit more style. Lichtsinn RV popped up in our Google search for dealerships close to us and we are very excited that they did. We booked a time to come down and see some floor plans that we liked on line and Mike was very helpful. No pressure, just information and advice. We talked about what we wanted in an RV and how we were looking to use it. He listened and showed us a bunch of options. We were thinking Class C and we ended up with a smaller Class A because it fit us better and gave us everything we needed at a better price point. The walk through was great and it got us prepped for our first trip from which we just returned. We are so happy with our purchase and can’t wait to get on to our next adventure. Thanks Mike, Brandon, Jaime, Justin, and the rest of the team (Sorry I don't remember everyone's name). From sales, service, and everyone in between. Great group of people and fantastic experience.

Coleman from Owatonna, MN

"Mike's sales approach was great!" 

Mike from Lincoln, NE

"Mike listened to all our questions and concerns from the first phone call. He responded in a timely manner and resolved any issues to our satisfaction.

Gary from Cedar Rapids, IA

"Mike made our RV available for Dianne and I to use the night we arrived after hours and he was there to see that everything was ok for us to spend the night in it. The next day all paperwork and orientation went fantastic no pressure at all. Also gave us a courtesy car to use."
