Our Favorite Moments of 2018

7 Reasons Why the Winnebago View is Better than the Tiffin Wayfarer

Here are our 7 Reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion ARE BETTER than the Tiffin Wayfarer.

Watch Our Video on the 7 Reasons why the Winnebago View and Navion ARE BETTER than the Tiffin Wayfarer Here

Our first reason is the View and Navion’s Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity or OCCC. Occupant and Cargo Carrying Capacity is the total weight of all cargo which includes you, your stuff, and all any freshwater you carry. The Tiffin’s occupant and cargo carrying capacity range from only 562 – 700-lbs while the View and Navion range from 1,100 – 1451-lbs. This is a substantial difference in cargo carrying capacity. You also must keep in mind that the occupant and cargo carrying capacity includes freshwater tanks, and in the Tiffin a full load of water is approximately 317-lbs. of cargo. So, after you fill your tanks you only have 200 –400 pounds of capacity for you, any passengers, your stuff, and the vertical tongue weight of your hitch. The View and Navion’s cargo carrying capacity is far superior to the Wayfarer because Winnebago invests in weight saving components like the highly durable, euro styled Italian Technoform cabinetry, which has been hand crafting cabinetry for high end yachts for years.

Our second reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is the View and Navion’s superior off-the-grid capabilities. A compact coach is the ultimate freedom vehicle and the last thing you want is to be tied down to a traditional campground. The View and Navion feature 2 large Group 31 batteries, 200-watts of solar, a 2,000-watt inverter, a 3,600-watt Cummins Onan Generator and a Compressor Refrigerator. The View and Navion also have optional lithium ion smart batteries available. Winnebago designed all of these features into the Winnebago View and Navion to provide users with extended off-the-grid functionality – like never seen before in a Winnebago View or Navion. The Tiffin Wayfarer has a smaller inverter, smaller generator, smaller house batteries and no solar. Overall, the Tiffin Wayfarer is not well equipped for camping outside of a traditional campground. With the View and Navion anywhere can be your campground.

Our third reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the View and Navion. The new SuperShell sleeper deck includes premium thermal and acoustic insulation, making the front bunk lighter and more comfortable than ever before. The SuperShell Sleeper deck also provides great space for storage when it isn’t being used as a bed. The Wayfarer features a generic cabover bunk that was not engineered with the same level of thermal and acoustic insulation as the SuperShell Sleeper Deck in the View and Navion.

Our fourth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is the premium features and smart storage design. Remi Cab Window Blinds and MCD Roller Shades. The View and Navion have the integrated, Sliding Remi shades on the front windshield, drivers and passenger cab windows. The shades are mounted into place and stay secure in their holder while traveling. When you’re ready to use them, operation is extremely simple and provides a solar thermal break to keep the sun out, and the RV cool. In the living area, kitchen and bedroom Winnebago utilizes MCD shades. MCD Shades are both easy to operate and clean and eliminate the problems associated with pleated shades, like the ones in the Compass and Gemini. MCD Night Shades are made of blackout fabric to block 100% of the light or made as a privacy shade which filters light into your RV. Both the proprietary ClearView and ClearView II screens provide an effective thermal barrier. The new window shades take the place of blackout curtains, cellular, vienna and silhouette shades, power visors, venetian blinds and other dated shades. MCD plans all shades utilizing CAD design and 3D software and manufactures with state-of-the-art computerized manufacturing equipment to ensure the highest quality and consistency. The View and Navion also feature new, smart storage features like the embedded paper towel holder and tissue dispenser. Another key design improvement is the roof wiring access port for technology. The roof wiring access port creates an easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the coach. This allows you to access to the roof to install your desired technology equipment whether it be wifi and cell boosters or satellite antennas. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for an easy change out and replacement for new equipment.

Our fifth reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is the View and Navion’s Murphy+ Bed in the 24D Floorplan. The Murphy+ Bed in the Winnebago View and Navion 24D provides a 60 by 70-inch sleeping surface that is accessible when you need it and a nice seating area when you don’t need the sleeping area. It is a true walkaround bed with one-touch operation. The Wayfarer is not a true walkaround, in fact when you manually put the bed into the sleeping position it pushes right up against the galley drawers. The Wayfarer’s Murphy Bed is far more difficult to use, it requires you to manually put together the heavy murphy bed.

Our sixth reason the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is the Custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door in the Winnebago View and Navion. In previous model years, Winnebago always had a best-in-class entry door on the Winnebago View and Navion. Winnebago took the best-in-class entry door to a whole new level with the custom-designed, automobile-grade entry door designed in Europe specifically for the Winnebago View and Navion. The new door is extremely sturdy, very similar to a car door, with dual latching points that greatly reduce wind and road noise. The inside of the new door features a sliding shade and in-door storage perfect for umbrellas, shoes and other outdoor gear. The Tiffin Wayfarer features the typical 3rd party manufactured door that is often seen in entry-level trailers and RVs.

Our final reason why the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer is Winnebago’s extensive experience building RVs on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. Winnebago has been building RVs for over 60 years and was the first American RV manufacturer to build on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. That experience has enabled Winnebago to be the top seller of Mercedes-Benz based RVs in North America. Why buy an RV from any other manufacturer?

That wraps up our 7 reasons why we think the Winnebago View and Navion are better than the Tiffin Wayfarer. You can see our View and Navion inventory and other videos like this one by visiting LichtsinnRV.com.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago View and Navion are Great RVs!

With new upscale details throughout, the View and Navion offer the freedom to live large in a compact coach. Combining quality with comfort, the View and Navion have been completely redesigned inside and out for an unparalleled Class C experience.

Built on the new Mercedes-Benz VS30 Chassis with the exclusive Pure3 Advanced Energy System, it perfectly blends innovation and comfort on the road.

Reason #2 – Lightweight Tecnoform Cabinetry

Technoform uses state-of-the-art materials and an environmentally friendly manufacturing process to create doors specifically for the Era. These beautiful, lightweight cabinets were designed to hold up to the most extreme humidity and temperature conditions without cracking, peeling, or warping.

5 Reasons Why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

The Winnebago Vita and Porto combine Mercedes-Benz fuel efficiency and durability with Winnebago’s legendary build quality and innovative features, a spacious interior and plenty of useful storage: the result is a compact and easy driving package that is perfect for solo travelers, couples or families. Here are our 5 reasons why the Winnebago Vita is a Great RV!

Reason #1 – Best-in-Class Holding Tank Capacities

The Winnebago Vita features best-in-class holding tank capacities including 37 gallons of fresh water, and 41 gallons of black and gray tank capacities – 35% more than the competitors. The Vita also has the occupant and cargo carrying capacity to hold that much fresh water without sacrificing weight for cargo or occupants.

Reason #2 – 200-Watt of Solar Standard

200-watts of solar help keep your batteries fully charged and extend off-the-grid use. The Vita and Porto’s solar system is also expandable up to 450-watts. Most RVs in this segment come with solar prep or solar as an option for an additional fee.

Reason #3 – Occupant Cargo Carrying Capacity

The Winnebago Vita and Porto are segment leaders for occupant and cargo carrying capacity. The OCCC is listed on the required yellow weight label that you can find inside one of the entry doors to the motorhome. The OCCC figure is the maximum allowable weight for all occupants, food, tools, and personal belongings, including the weight of all the fresh water that you carry. Even the weight you put on the hitch must be included in your cargo calculation and the total must be less than the OCCC for safe operation of your RV. Based on the option and floorplan selection, the View and Navion typically provide well over 1,000 pounds, while the new Vita and Porto were designed to provide up to 1,800 pounds of capacity.

Reason #4 – SuperShell Sleeper Deck

Winnebago’s exclusive SuperShell composite hull, featured in the Vita, is produced in a closed mold with injected urethane foam sandwiched between the fiberglass outer shell and an interior panel. This design and manufacturing method is similar to how a high-end cooler is constructed. This superior design strengthens the cab over area and improves sound and thermal comfort while also reducing the weight and the potential for leaks and squeaks. The design also reduced the number of parts and processes necessary to build the cab-over, improving quality and durability for our owners.

Reason #5 – Roof Access Connectivity Port

Easy wire path for outdoor equipment to the inside of the Winnebago Vita. Allows the owner to install their desired equipment – like WiFi boosters, antennas, etc. As equipment becomes outdated, this port allows for easy change out and replacement for new equipment/wiring to be run inside the coach.

Lichtsinn RV: A Family-Owned and Operated Winnebago Dealer for 40 Years    By: RVPro

Lichtsinn RV is celebrating its 40th anniversary as a family-owned and operated Winnebago Dealer. Ron Lichtsinn Sr., owned Lichtsinn Motors, a thriving Buick, Chevrolet, General Motors and Cadillac Dealership in Forest City, Iowa. In 1979, with a handshake between Lichtsinn Sr., and John K. Hanson, founder of Winnebago Industries, Lichtsinn began selling Winnebago conversion vans. In 2001, Ron Lichtsinn Jr., and Hope Lichtsinn bought Lichtsinn Motors from Ron Sr., and have grown Lichtsinn RV into the largest Winnebago dealer in North America.

Ron and Hope have continued to foster a family-like environment at Lichtsinn RV which can be seen in the number of families that are part of the Lichtsinn RV team. In addition to Ron and Hope, there are three sets of couples that are employed at Lichtsinn RV –  Jeremy Gilbertson (Guest Service Specialist) and Janelle Gilbertson (RV Service Coordinator), Kevin Breister (Business Manager) and Maggie Breister (Marketing Manager) and Ben Follman (RV Service Tech) and Nicole Follman (RV Sales Consultant. Nicole Follman’s Sister-in-Law, Hannah Lunning is also employed at Lichtsinn RV as a RV Sales Manager. In addition, Lichtsinn RV employs two sets of siblings– Brian Buffington (RV Service Director) and Brad Buffington (RV Service Tech) and Heidi Thompson (VP and General Manager) and Reed Burkholder (RV Sales Consultant). Lichtsinn RV even has a father, son, and brother-in-law set with Henry Stone (RV Sales Consultant), Chris Stone (Finishing Manager) and Brandon Rounds (RV Finishing and Quality Control).

Nicole Follman has worked with her husband for six years and her sister-in-law for nearly ten years, and she believes Lichtsinn RV is a great environment for families to work together. She likes working with her husband and sister-in-law, “It makes everything easier, both work and home life because Ben and I are on complimentary schedules and if I need something all I have to do is walk to the shop.”

Ron and Hope Lichtsinn have worked hard to make Lichtsinn RV a great employer for families.

“Hope and I realize family is everything, our families and loved ones are the reason we get up each day and work to provide them the things we’d like them to have and the ability to do things together we want to,” Ron says, “We try and take the same approach as we look to our employees. We encourage family members to join our team where it makes sense. From insurance to balancing schedules, we look at the family members to try and ensure we are providing their families the life experience they will look back on and be proud of. This family environment is not only felt by other team members but also by our guests. As they contact us about their dreams for an RV experience that will allow them to spend more time with family and loved ones.”

 

“Toy Story 4″ Themed Winnebago Vita Visits Forest City Theatre

Toy Story 4 Themed Winnebago

Recently, a Toy Story 4 themed Winnebago Vita was parked outside the Forest Theatre in Forest City, Iowa celebrating the opening of Toy Story 4. In Toy Story 4, Woody, Buzz Lightyear and the rest of the gang embark on a road trip with Bonnie and a new toy named Forky. The adventurous journey turns into an unexpected reunion as Woody’s slight detour leads him to his long-lost friend Bo Peep. As Woody and Bo discuss the old days, they soon start to realize that they’re worlds apart when it comes to what they want from life as a toy.

Go RVing is teaming up with Disney and Pixar in celebration of “Toy Story 4” to launch an integrated marketing campaign to inspire RV travel that takes family and friends on unforgettable adventures – just like Bonnie’s family and the “Toy Story 4” friends. RV road trip adventures are as much about forming unbreakable bonds as the travel itself. Now in its 22nd year, Go RVing challenges Americans to ‘find their away’ and pursue their passions more frequently when they travel by RV.
