 Roxanne, New Mexico Facebook Review

“Living in New Mexico, the best decision we ever made was to buy our new 2021 Revel from Lichtsinn RV. Amazing customer service and training throughout the buying process. Our van was plugged in, cleaned, and disinfected and awaiting our inspection when we got there. The support and educational resources from Lichtsinn are the best around. Your team rocks!

Jennifer, Florida, Facebook Review

“Wow…we just wrapped up our order at Lichtsinn RV today and had to recommend them.  Our salesperson was absolutely fantastic – she knew everything Winnebago inside and out – we were so impressed with the obvious high level of training she has received.  We felt like she was a friend by the time we had finished.  If this is how Lichtsinn’s trains all their employees, they should give other companies lessons. 

We were also incredibly happy with the deal we got at Lichtsinn’s compared to what we could have gotten locally – even driving 1,600 miles to pick up our coach it’s going to be less than it was to get it locally.  Knowing that Winnebago is all they sell made us especially comfortable in dealing with them.

If you are considering Lichtsinn’s – do it!  I am confident you won’t regret it.”

Lenna, South Carolina, Google Review

“Lichtsinn RV’s customer service and level of expertise is THE best we have ever experienced with ANY industry or business. Their website led us to call them. From that first phone call to leaving the dealership less than a month later with a new RV – we found their help and assistance above and beyond. There are many positive adjectives to describe our incredible experience; the top ones that come to mind are responsive, knowledgeable, attentive, friendly, and totally focused on our satisfaction. All of this led us – as first time RV owners – to travel from South Carolina to Iowa to do business with them. We have no regrets and would do it all again!!!”

Winnebago 4 Season Class B RVs

Featured Part: RV SnapPads

Any experienced RVer will tell you that not every RV park or campsite you visit will be flat or level. Sometimes one side of your spot will be higher than the other. Sometimes the terrain itself will be lumpy.

Of course, experienced RVers will also tell you that getting your rig level is essential to your camping experience. Appliances like your refrigerator need to be level to function properly. Any liquids that you might have or use in the vehicle can be difficult to work with if your rig is “wonky”. Sleeping at night or walking around your rig can also be less comfortable if it is leaning or slanted.

Leveling your rig is just one of the main reasons invest in leveling pads for your Motorhome or Fifth Wheel. However, given the size and weight of modern RVs, the health of our nation’s roads, sidewalks, and driveways are also at risk. Not to mention the maintenance and functionality of your automatic leveling system.

SnapPads, jack pad  will solve these issues. Here are a few reasons why SnapPads stand out – SnapPads for RVs

  • SnapPad increases stability in 3 ways: a larger footprint, more vibration dampening, and by conforming to uneven terrain like gravel.
  • Installs in seconds. Stays on forever. Say goodbye to crawling under your rig every time you set up.
  • SnapPads absorb the daily punishment of the road and elements instead of your metal landing feet. Helps prevent the protective coating from being damaged by gravel, concrete, asphalt and the environment.
  • SnapPads are made from durable rubber that grips any terrain. No more popping jacks or slipping in high winds or slick surfaces like ice.
  • Our process uses recycled tire crumb, high strength resin, and a 100+ ton press to make SnapPads extremely durable.
  • Made in the USA from recycled American tires. Good for the environment. Good for the country.
  • May help protect your family and electronics in the event of an electrical surge from a non-direct lightning strike.

To order the SnapPads please contact the Lichtsinn RV Parts Department by calling 1-800-343-6255 or emailing parts@lichtsinn.com

Tips for RVing in the Fall

Don’t give up on the RVing season yet! RVing in the fall is a terrific time to get out and enjoy the cooler temps!Hiking in a Winnebago View

  1. Pack Layers – Fall is prime season for unpredictable weather. You can check the daily weather forecast and try to prepare for it, but need to that conditions changing is always a possibility. Packing clothing layers helps with fluctuating temperatures throughout the day, from cool mornings to warm afternoons and chilly nights. This tried-and-true strategy allows the whole family to stay comfortable by adding or removing layers the weather or your activity level changes.
  2. Fill Up Your Propane – Don’t leave home without a full tank of propane. We all know that nothing uses up propane in the RV more than the heater, and you’re going to need it at night. While many campgrounds offer propane, they charge a premium for the convenience.
  3. Properly Inflate Tires – This is often an overlooked item, but you’ve got a lot riding on your tires. Did you know that for every 10 degrees of temperature drop, your tires can lose one to two pounds of pressure? It is important to keep your tires within the recommended inflation to maintain traction, handling and durability. The most important thing is the safety of you and your family. We also tend to pack quite a bit of gear, and under-inflation has an impact on carrying capacity, which is the greatest amount of weight your vehicle can safely haul.
  4. Be Prepared for Shorter Camping Days – We get spoiled camping in the summer with long stretches of daylight and have to be prepared to adjust for our fall trips. The first consideration is arrival time at the campground. No one likes to set up their campsite after dark. Things can get tricky when you can’t see well. Plan ahead to be sure you’re taking the earlier sunset into account. Try the weather channel app to get the accurate sunrise and sunset times. Also, pack a few flashlights or lanterns in case you’re unexpectedly delayed. Even better, a good headlamp allows you to have full use of your hands while lighting your way.
  5. Get Ready for the Campfire – One of the best ways to enjoy cooler evenings is sitting around the warmth of a campfire. Obviously, every good fire needs some s’mores, so pack the graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate. Even more importantly, don’t forget the sticks!
  6. Take a Trip Close to Home – You don’t have to travel far to have fun! If the kids are in school or you can’t get away from work, you can still enjoy an amazing weekend camping trip close to home. You may feel like you know your local area pretty well, but sometimes we miss the hidden treasures right under our noses. Even better, staying close to home with save you money on one of the most expensive aspects of RV travel: fuel.

Fall is a great time to pack up the RV and enjoy a great weekend of camping!

RV Packing List – Commonly Needed Items for Your RV

Family-Friendly Fall RVing Destinations

There are several family-friendly destinations for RVing. We chose some of our favorites from across the United States!

Winnebago View RVing in the Fall

Steamboat Springs, CO – Catch the changing of the leaves in all their glory in Steamboat Springs, Colo. Nestled in the Yampa Valley, Steamboat Springs is an unspoiled mountain town where your trip is more affordable than Aspen or Vail, but offers similar breathtaking views.

Steamboat Springs offers two year-round hot springs. Strawberry Park Hot Springs is located seven miles from downtown Steamboat and is surrounded by yellow aspens during the fall. There are multiple pools with various temperatures. Old Town Hot Springs features eight natural mineral pools, 230-foot water slides and a fitness center. Located downtown, this location promises family fun for everyone.

As for outdoor activities, a variety of trails are perfect for hikers and bikers alike, while the Yampa River is a fly-fishing haven. The Steamboat Lake State Park offers trout fishing below Hahn’s Peak. The 4-mile Emerald Mountain Quarry Trail offers glimpses of Mt. Werner and the downtown area. Or find yourself on top of the Continental Divide on the six-mile Rabbit Ears Peak Trail.

Looking to relax? Downtown Steamboat offers dining and shopping options for all tastes.

Quechee State Park, VT – The East Coast is known for its colors in the fall, and to leave an East Coast destination off an autumn list of RV trips just wouldn’t be right. One of the best places to view the changing leaves is Quechee State Park.

While you are there take in the views of the Quechee Gorge. Vermont’s deepest gorge, formed by glacial activity about 13,000 years ago, you can view the Ottauquechee River flowing 165 feet below. The river offers brook trout, rainbow trout and brown trout fishing, as well as the Quechee Gorge Trail.

Visit the nearby Vermont Institute of Natural Sciences (VINS) Nature Center which offers live special educational bird programs, exhibits, nature trails and avian rehab in action. Another nearby attraction is Sugarbush Farm. Visit a working Vermont farm that offers free admission, free samples and the chance to visit with real farmers. Those who left reviews recommend trying the maple syrup and cheese

Willamette Valley, OR – Visit Willamette Valley, Ore., for a taste of all things fall. Willamette Valley truly celebrates the autumn season, with festivals and events nearly every weekend. Septemberfest, Sublimity Harvest Festival, Oktoberfest, Barn Dance at the Oregon Garden and Corvallis Craft Beer Week are just some of the events that take place.

For those who enjoy a glass of vino, the Carlton Winemakers Studio in Willamette Valley is a must stop. A communal concept, various boutique winemakers use the space to create unique and experimental wines with state-of-the-art equipment, while sharing the cost of production.

Other wineries such as August Cellars, Day Camp and Southeast Wine Collective are just a few of the options for travelers to stop in. Aside from a great glass, vineyards create a beautiful autumn landscape.

Coloma, MI – Take a trip to Coloma, Mich., where you’re near Lake Michigan and fall fun. At Lake Michigan you can relax on white sand beaches, visit lighthouses or spend the day kayaking and paddle boarding. If you’re feeling adventurous, travel the Paw Paw River Water Trail that runs 66 miles through a wildlife rich floodplain forest corridor through Van Buren and Berrien Counties.

In the heart of Michigan’s fruit country, visit u-pick farms, fruit markets, and enjoy picking apples from an orchard and a cup of cider. There are also award-winning vineyards nearby. Take everyone to Jollay Orchards, a family friendly farm where kids and parents alike can enjoy the best fruit Michigan has to offer.

Glacier National Park, MT – Many people think visiting Montana means a trip through Yellowstone National Park. And while that is a great trip to take, one of Montana’s lesser-known jewels is Glacier National Park.

While you’re there, make sure you travel Going-to-the-Sun Road. The road spans 50 miles, crossing the Continental Divide at Logan Pass. While on the road you will see glaciers, valleys, waterfalls, mountains and colorful wildflowers. Most visitors also witness wildlife sightings on the trip.

Glacier offers hiking, ranger-led programs, guided tours, beautiful scenery for photographers, biking, fishing, boating and other special events depending on the time of the year. Since the high elevations here can mean early snow, Glacier National Park makes a perfect early fall destination – keep this in mind when planning.

Special places to visit in the park include Lake McDonald Valley, Many Glacier, St. Mary, Two Medicine, North Fork and Goat Haunt.

4 Hidden Places to Find Extra Storage in Your RV

Post originally seen on DoItYourselfRV.com 

Most of us have a lack of imagination when it comes to how we use our homes, and this extends into the world of RVs as well. We tend to accept the storage we’re given, and outside of purchasing shelving or containers, we don’t get very creative when it comes to where to put our things.

In an RV, this can lead to over-crowded drawers and important gear that cannot be found until after an alternative has already been used. Here are four under-utilized areas that can make great storage when coupled with the right hardware!

  1. On the Inside of Doors – Wall space for hanging items is always at a premium inside an RV, but there are likely multiple areas that represent several square feet each on the back of every room door and cabinet door inside your motorhome or travel trailer. Whether you choose a pocket caddy for your shower goodies on the bathroom door or Command adhesive hooks from 3M for utensils inside the kitchen cupboard, there are a variety of tools at your disposal. One really cool idea I like is a trash can that mounts to the inside of your under-sink cupboard! Homemade Door Storage for Bug Spray and Flip-Flops – You might also make your own inside-the-door storage area from some wooden furring strips and bug mesh. Maybe you have some spare trim laying around the garage or in the basement? Cut it to length and screw a few pieces into the wood on the back of the door. Then take some mesh and tack it underneath to form a handy and sturdy storage pocket.
  2. Make Use of Your Ceilings – Depending on how your RV is constructed, you can use screw in or adhesive hangers to mount items up and out of the way, but still close enough to get to when needed. The ceiling of a utility space is great for hanging brooms, mops, and other long items such as fishing poles. Over-the-sink hanging baskets can provide great travel-safe storage for produce or other small kitchen items. In the bathroom, hanging shelves or baskets can organize soap, shampoo, and loofahs. If you think of what you use in each space of your RV, ideas will come.
  3. Build In More Drawers – Inside the walls of your RV, there are pockets of unused space. One such location is inside dinette benches. While many allow for drop-in storage from the top, adding full extension guides and drawer boxes can make this space more usable since it doesn’t require dismantling your dining area to access it! Small slide-out and drawer units can also be found for under your tabletops and cabinets to add small spaces for important items that otherwise just get jumbled in with everything else.
  4. Create Usable Space Under Your Mattress – Many RVs do make use of this space (at least partially) with hidden drawers. In many cases, however, the center part of the space under the mattress is completely unusable.

Whether you add drawers, or a hinged platform to lift the mattress up and out of the way, this is a great place for items that stay stored until used and are not typically packed away until it’s time to break camp. Things like outdoor furniture, tents or canopies come to mind. If you live in your RV, this is also a great place for seasonal item storage.
