It has been an amazing year for all of us at Lichtsinn RV! With 2018 coming to an end and 2019 quickly approaching we wanted to look back at 2018 and share with you some of our favorite moments!
Lichtsinn RV Named #1 Winnebago Dealer in North America for the 4th Year in a Row
In 2018, Lichtsinn RV was recognized as the #1 Winnebago Dealer in North America for the 4th consecutive year by Winnebago Industries at the Winnebago Redefined Dealer meeting in San Diego, CA. Lichtsinn RV was also named the #1 dealer of Class B motorhomes, #1 dealer of class c motorhomes, a top 2 dealer for class a diesel motorhomes, and a top 5 dealer for class a gas in North America.
Exciting, New Products from Winnebago
Winnebago introduced a handful of new, exciting products from late 2017 through 2018. The first being the Winnebago Revel – a true 4×4, all-season RV perfect for getting off the beaten, next Winnebago introduced the Travato 59KL and 59GL with the Pure3 Lithium Energy Management System powered by Volta Systems. The Travato 59KL and 59GL is Winnebago’s first venture into lithium-powered RVs and it has been an exciting one. And at the end of 2018, Winnebago brought back the legendary Class A gas motorhome – the Adventurer.

Giving Back to Our Community
In 2018, Lichtsinn RV continued to donate to various charitable causes through our We Care Charitable Giving Program. We continued to donate money to the Forest City School District, the Forest City Fire Department, Forest City Education Foundation, the American Cancer Society, and the Forest City YMCA. In 2016, Lichtsinn RV donated to the fund to build the Boman Fine Arts Center in Forest City, and in late 2018 the center held its grand opening. In October, Hurricane Florence devastated the Carolinas, and after the hurricane subsided, Gayle a Lichtsinn RV guest loaded her new Revel with supplies to assist in the cleanup. The team at Lichtsinn RV brought in various supplies to send with Gayle to provide relief. It is the season for giving at Lichtsinn RV, and in the month of December members of the Lichtsinn RV team donated Christmas gifts to over 20 kids through the local giving tree program.
