Lichtsinn RV – Celebrating 40 Years Selling Winnebago Motor Homes

 

In 2019, Lichtsinn RV celebrated a milestone, 40 years selling Winnebago Motor Homes. What began as “Lichtsinn Motors” in the mid-70’s, a GM dealership, quickly expanded to what it is today, Lichtsinn RV, the Top North American Winnebago Dealer.

Lichtsinn RV

The origins of the GM dealership began in the Mid-70’s when it was purchased by Ron Lichtsinn Sr.. The dealership continued to grow as a GM Dealership and sold John Deere Tractors for a short period of time as well. Then, in 1979 after a conversation and a handshake between Ron Sr. and John K. Hanson (Winnebago Industries’ Founder) Lichtsinn Motors began its RV history and started selling Winnebago Conversion vans.

The Winnebago side of the business continued to grow during the next many years and achieved the Flying W Award (previously called the Circle of Excellence Award) in 1994. The Dealership has achieved this award each year since that time for over 26 years. This award signifies service excellence and superior owner satisfaction.

In 2001, Lichtsinn Motors was purchased by Ron Sr.’s son, Ron Lichtsinn II and his wife, Hope. The dealership continued to grow during the next several years achieving the position of the largest Motorhome Dealer in the state of Iowa in 2001, awarded by Statistical Surveys Inc., a title which it retains to this day.

In 2004, Lichtsinn Motors purchased the former Winnebago Industries Home Office, across the street from the Lichtsinn Motors Dealership. This building was almost entirely torn down to create the new Lichtsinn Motors RV Sales Office.

Lichtsinn RV Sales Building

Over the years Lichtsinn Motors was awarded by Winnebago Industries with many sales and parts award achievements. The Lichtsinn Motors reputation continued to grow across the Country as a leader in the RV Industry. Their focus of providing guests Industry leading service, coupled with a strong Internet presence and investment in technology, led the dealership to navigate through the challenging years of the recession of 2008. The slogan “In the town know for building Winnebago’s, we’re the dealership know for selling them” was adopted.

In 2014, Lichtsinn RV built a new state-of-the-art RV Sales, Parts and Service building in the former Lichtsinn RV Sales property. This expansion allowed the Lichtsinn RV Sales, Parts and Service Departments to sit under one roof, providing a seamless transition from each department to the Lichtsinn RV customer.  The new building boasted 5 Service Bays, a large indoor RV Parts and Camping Accessories Store, a spacious Service Check-In Area, a Video Production Studio, Indoor Delivery and Service Drive Area and a Guest Lounge equipped with the latest technology. During this time the name of Lichtsinn RV became the business name for the RV side of the business.

Lichtsinn Motors (dba Lichtsinn RV) divested of the GM business in 2015 to focus solely on the Winnebago Motorized Business. During this same year Lichtsinn RV also added 3 additional Service Bays to better service guests needs.

Each year since 2015 Lichtsinn RV has been award the Top North American Winnebago Dealer by Winnebago Industries.

In 2017, Lichtsinn RV achieved the Clean Auto Alliance’s Environment and Safety Elite Award. With the receipt of this award Lichtsinn RV joined a select group of automotive, truck and equipment dealerships and service companies that have demonstrated dedication to excellence in regards to overall concern for their community, their employees and their customers. In order to achieve this award Lichtsinn RV participated in a rigorous review process and proved adherence to industry best practices in all six program categories, including: Safety Systems, Environmental Systems, Hazard Communication, Loss Control, Emergency Response, and other Facility Specific Requirements.

Over the years Lichtsinn RV has been featured in numerous print and Video publications including the Des Moines Register, RV Pro, Going RV and More.

Lichtsinn RV Team

Lichtsinn RV has always made a priority of charitable giving. From working with the Iowa Lottery in the 90’s, working with FEMA in 2005 providing Travel Trailers to those displaced by Hurricane Katrina, working with the Make-A-Wish Foundation and many more organizations. In 2009, the Lichtsinn Family We Care Charitable Giving Foundation was established as the giving arm of Lichtsinn RV. Since its inception over $150,000 has been donated to various organizations through the program. The Program was revamped in 2019 to allow Lichtsinn RV Team members to collectively select 3-5 organizations annually that Lichtsinn RV will provide an employer match to any employee donations. Previous organizations who have benefited from the We Care Charitable Giving donations have included: The Forest City Community School District, The Lake Mills Community School DistrictThe Forest City YMCA, Local Student Sports Teams, The Forest City Education Foundation, Hospice of North Iowa and The American Cancer Society. Through this program we have also been privileged to contribute to: The Boman Fine Arts CenterThe Forest City Aquatic Center, Westown Place Apartments, The Forest City Fire Department and Emergency Services Center, Winnebago County Sheriff’s Office and more.

Winnebago Solis Makes Curbed’s Best Camper Vans of 2019 List

Winnebago’s Solis campervan was recently recognized by Curbed.com, an online publication, as one of the top 9 campervans for 2019.

Read the original article here.

Winnebago debuted two new camper vans this year, the Boldt and the Solis. Already well known for the Revel, a converted 144-inch Mercedes Sprinter with four-wheel drive, Winnebago is looking to grow its share of the camper van market.

Billed as a four-season pop-up camper built on the Ram Promaster chassis, the Solis is also Winnebago’s most affordable camper van with a 2020 price tag of $100,667. What’s exciting for potential buyers is that the Solis delivers sleeping space for four thanks to a rear double-bed area that converts to seating during the day. Buyers can opt for a queen-size Murphy bed that drops down, or—and this is key for families—a sofa bed that includes two additional three-point seat belts. This means that parents can safely drive and sleep their kiddos, either in the optional sofa bed or in the two chairs up front.

Whichever option you choose, two people can enjoy the rear sleeping space while another two people can sleep in the fiberglass pop-top area that includes the Froli sleeping system and three windows.

Introducing the New Winnebago Solis

Winnebago Solis Named by RVPro Best in Show at Open House

 

Top Questions from Our Webcast on the Frequently Asked Questions about Winnebago’s Class B Lineup

We recently held a webcast covering the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) about Winnebago’s Class B lineup – Winnebago Travato, Revel and Boldt. You can watch the webcast here.

Read our top questions from the webcast below –

  1. In terms of the Truma System, can I use it to heat my coach when I don’t have water in the coach? Yes, it can be used if the RV is winterized.
  2. Are all Winnebago B-Vans 4-Season RVs and what does that mean? As of today, all campervans from Winnebago are four-season. While that is a loose term, for us can you use this in cooler temps? Winnebago has added automotive-grade insulation to all of the campervans and has fully enclosed pressurized water lines. The Travato and the Boldt have heating pads on the holding tanks allowing guests to dump the tanks in sub-freezing temperatures, while the Revel has a cassette toilet.
  3. How do these vans come from the OEM – Mercedes-Benz and Ram – Is Winnebago improving the insulation or any other improvements? The chassis will come as a shell, with exposed sheet metal. Winnebago adds all the insulation and builds the interior components of the campervan. Winnebago is an accredited upfitter of Mercedes-Benz and Sprinter which allows them to add functional windows, unlike some competitors.
  4. Why is my lithium pack not charging? The shut down temperature in the Pure3 system is 37 degrees and if it hits there the lithium pack will not charge.
  5. What has the best ground clearance? The Winnebago Revel has 8” of ground clearance and the Winnebago Travato has 7” of ground clearance.
  6. What is 4WD offered in? The Winnebago Revel (standard 4WD) and it is optional on the Winnebago Boldt.
  7. What are the key differences between the Winnebago Boldt and the Winnebago Era? Why is the Boldt more expensive? The Boldt has the Pure3 lithium system while the Winnebago Era has the Cummins-Onan LP generator is the key factor that drives the cost.
  8. What is the best campervan if I want to bring several passengers? The Travato and Revel have seatbelts for four while the Boldt has seat belts for up to 6.
  9. What is located under the bench seat in the Travato 59G? In non-lithium Travato it houses the freshwater tank, in the lithium Travato it houses some of the Pure3 system components.
  10. What are our guest’s overall experiences with homeowner associations (HOA) on campervans from Winnebago? Overall, they are favorable. Winnebago uses automotive-grade paint with sleek exteriors that do not look like your typical RV. We have guests that pull the small exterior graphics – like the Winnebago logo to really make the van look stealth.
  11. Will the new Eras have similar insulation to the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will.
  12. What is the timeframe on the Winnebago Solis? We are expecting our first Solis at the end of January 2020.
  13. How easy is it to use the pop-top in the Winnebago Solis? It is very easy to use!
  14. Will the Era have the same chassis options as the Winnebago Boldt? Yes, it will have the same creature comforts and safety features as the Winnebago Boldt.
  15. Can you use Sumo Springs on the Boldt? Yes, there are options from SumoSprings on the Mercedes-Benz chassis. However, it is one of the most comfortable, best-riding vehicle Winnebago has made.
  16. Can you install a muffler for the generator? They are typically called a resonator. They improve the exterior noise of the generator.
  17. Can I sleep with the bed in the Winnebago Revel half way up? Yes, you can use it in any position.
  18. How does grade-braking work on the Boldt? It uses the power of the transmission to assist in your braking.
  19. Where do we see the Winnebago Solis entering our lineup? We think it is a new segment based on the features. It is built to be rugged and durable with the underscore being simple.
  20. What is the fuel economy between the chassis offerings? The ProMaster is about 16 – 18 mpg and the Sprinter is typically seeing 18 – 21 mpg.

12 Days of Motorhomes: The Winnebago Revel, A True 4×4 RV

In honor of the timeless Christmas carol, The 12 Days of Christmas, we are featuring 12 Winnebago models that you will want to add to your Christmas list!

The Winnebago Revel

Winnebago Revel

Designed specifically for active outdoor enthusiasts, the all new Winnebago Revel takes a no-nonsense approach to adventure with a straightforward design and function driven features. Taking full advantage of the 4×4 Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter chassis, the Revel’s 3.0 litre turbo diesel puts 325 lbs.- ft. of torque through an on demand 4WD system, complete with high and low range and hill descent mode for added off road capability.

Inside, the Revel’s unique features start with a floorplan designed around a Power Lift Bed with a 140 cu. ft. gear garage below. This allows for a 49 x 79 inch cross coach sleeping area. A full galley, including a 2.5 cu. ft. refrigerator, makes meal prep a breeze, while the all in one bath and gear closet boasts a cassette style toilet that eliminates the need for a separate black water holding tank. Add a standard solar power system that is expandable to 510 watts, diesel powered Espar hydronic heating and hot water, a dinette with a pull up table that converts to additional sleeping space, and many more innovative features and the result is the new Revel: quite simply the most off road capable RV Winnebago has ever built.

Storage and living space are maximized by the flared body and Power Lift Bed that converts to a 49 x 79 inch sleeping surface. Welded aluminum cabinet face frames, dual pane windows with insulated shades, snap in screens for fresh air circulation, and an available quieter Mach 10 NDQ AC system all contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability.

Winnebago Revel Highlights:

  • 4WD Mercedes-Benz VS30 Sprinter Chassis
  • All-in-Gear Closet and Wet Bath
  • Powerlift Bed
  • Gear Garage

Winnebago Vita’s 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.

Winnebago Vita’s 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.

Winnebago Vita 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.
