Renae Aukes - RV Sales Consultant

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

Hi! My name is Renae Aukes and I am a Sales Consultant at Lichtsinn RV. My husband and I grow up in North Iowa and enjoy living in Forest City. We are very involved with our kids sporting events and school activities. We spend as much time as we can outdoors in the summer enjoying the local campgrounds and nearby lakes. I most importantly enjoy spending time with my husband and two children. I also enjoy riding bike and doing kick boxing classes at the local YMCA. I truly enjoy helping our guests find the right RV and we have a great team to help them achieve this. 

Reviews from Renae's Guests

"A chance meeting while getting coffee in the guest lounge at Lichtsinn RV lead to a great purchase of a new Travato. We were having our View serviced and met sales consultant Renae in the lounge. We asked if she had time to show us a Travato, which she did. She followed up with us later in the week to see if we had questions. Five months later and we are week 3 of a trip to the east coast and Atlantic provinces. Renae made the process seamless over the phone and email, including trading in our View. Brandon in financing got us through all the paperwork so we could get licensed and on the road. Overall great experience and follow up from several Lichtsinn staff."

Karen from Lincoln, NE

"Great service; friendly, knowledgeable, and personable staff. Very good communication and online resources. Flew in from PA to drive home our new “tent”. Not carrying our shelter on my back any longer; now just driving it to where we choose! Highly recommend!

Dennis from Etters, PA

"Renae was fantastic. She was very attentive to our concerns and kept in constant communication. Brandon in the business office made the closing process painless and was extremely efficient. Josh gave us the one on one breakdown of the RV and it’s systems and was beyond helpful. Thank you everyone! Worth the trip to Iowa." 

Erez & Rose from Hilton Head Island, SC

"We recently purchased a Solis Camper Van from Lichtsinn in Forest City, IA and the process could not have been any better or more transparent. From the start of the process they gave us a full “out the door” quote that they stuck to throughout, and with no surprise additional expenses at the end. Renae was great to work with as she kept in weekly contact with the progress of our build. When the delivery date was announced we made flight reservations and she arranged for airport pick up, a free loaner car when we arrived in Forest City, despite arriving there after 8pm. Renae actually rode her bike out to meet us with the loaner car keys. She met us early the next morning to get things rolling and take us through the purchase process. The van was prepped with water, gas and propane, we had a 2 hour lesson on how everything works, completed all the paperwork and we were on our way back to California by lunchtime. Everyone at Lichtsinn was very helpful and it could not have gone any smoother. What a great experience with a very nice crew of people. It was by far, the best vehicle purchase process I have ever been through." 

Gary & JoAnn from San Lus Obispo, CA

"Lichtsinn RV helped us actualize our dream for travel with a class B Travato so we can access places of natural beauty that larger vehicles can not. Renae Aukes’s service was outstanding. She was extremely patient and courteous throughout the whole process to sort out what vehicle would best serve our needs. She was always accessible and shared our excitement. Her expertise was great as she guided us along. When we went to Lichtsinn to pick up our vehicle, Renae was extremely helpful and was always available, even on her day off! She introduced us to the support staff who skillfully taught us how to use it from beginning to end. By the time we left, we had a good working knowledge of the vehicle and the whole Lichtsinn staff felt like family. We have been especially pleased and grateful for the ongoing support as we made our way back home to CT and now are camping in ME. Also a big thank you to Justin who helps us with technical issues that arise as we continue to learn. We love our Travato! Thank you Renae, Justin and staff for making our dream come true!

"Renae was fantastic in helping us through the process of buying the RV. She and the staff were always available to answer questions. Linda and I highly recommend Renae and the team at Lichtsinn RV if you are thinking of purchasing a van. Renae is like having a good friend in the business!

Marshall from Manchester, CT

"Picked up new WB Solis 59P a week ago. Everything was awesome from purchase through delivery, and beyond. Saved me a bunch by picking up camper instead of having it delivered, and they were able to get me the best loan/finance rate by far. Great orientation to vehicle, lots of questions answered at pickup and while on the road after, picked up a few extra goodies in Parts Store too. Two thumbs up to everyone I dealt with, including Renae, Justin, Jeremy and Barry (hope I didn’t miss anyone!) Wish I lived in the area so I could continue service with them. Great job everyone!

Cynthia from Goodyear, AZ

"We had such a good experience working with Renae. We knew which RV we wanted but had a few questions we needed cleared up. There was another same RV in South Dakota. We had to choose which place we would purchase it from. In having many discussions with Renae, we felt she was very upfront & pleasant to deal with. We just had a good vibe from her. We were coming from Colorado to pick this up and she made arrangements to have someone give us an introduction to this new vehicle. They also offer a place to camp close by so if we had issues or questions, they would be right there to help. The whole process was so fluid. I will recommend Renae to anyone looking for an RV.
