Whether it’s your first RV and you’ve decided the RV lifestyle is now for you or you’re a seasoned RVer ready for your next home you’ll spend a lot of time researching the perfect RV for your needs. However, the research process does not end when you’ve decided on that perfect RV, there is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV DEALER to work with. Buyers will want to invest just as much time if not more, in researching RV dealers to make sure they find a reputable dealer to work with.

“There is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV dealer to work with.”

Let’s face it, there are a lot of lousy RV dealerships out there. Unfortunately, in the race to find the lowest possible RV price, many people choose to buy from dealers who do not have a history of great customer service and outstanding RV repair. Know in advance that the lowest price is not usually synonymous with the best buying experience. In our blog series we will cover items you should be looking for in your RV Dealer.

Now you have the RV of your dreams, you’ve put a couple thousand miles on it, taking your house on wheels down the road while shaking and rattling it all the way. Chances are sometime in the future, or sooner if you decide you’d like some accessories added, you’ll need to reach out to a Winnebago Parts Department to help you (or your servicing repair facility will) to find a part for your RV. Winnebago does not ship parts directly to guests, so you’ll have to reach out to a Winnebago RV Dealer. You’ll want to look at the after purchase support a dealer provides when making an RV buying decision. Oftentimes we think of Service only when we discuss after purchase support, but the dealership’s RV Parts Department is equally as important.

As the closest dealer to the Winnebago Motorhome Factory we are able to provide you with same-day Nationwide shipping on in-stock parts from our warehouse and Winnebago’s.

At Lichtsinn RV, Winnebago Motorhomes are the only new Motorhomes that we carry. This allows our parts team to specialize in Winnebago RV parts.

Tips for Finding a Reputable RV Dealer: Superior Accommodations

Know in advance that the lowest price is not usually synonymous with the best buying experience. In our blog series we will cover items you should be looking for in your RV Dealer.

A Place to Stay While You’re at the Dealership…Superior Accommodations

Blog Accommodations

Another factor to consider when purchasing an RV is the dealership’s availability of accommodations for you to stay at while you are there for delivery or for any service appointments.

There are so many features on an RV, after you take delivery you are bound to have a number of questions, some of which may not arise until you’ve stayed in the RV a night or two. If you are trading in an RV, you’ll have to move your things from unit to unit.

When you go to a dealership for service (you’re purchasing dealer or any other), it’s easier to stay on site in your RV versus finding an alternative place to stay if the servicing dealer is any distance from you.

Enjoy superior accommodations at Lichtsinn RV. Whether you are here to purchase an RV or for an RV Service Appointment, we offer numerous accommodations to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible.  When purchasing an RV we encourage you to stay overnight with us at least one night, so that we are available just outside your doorstep the next day to answer any questions that you may have.

As a service guest at Lichtsinn RV, if you have a multi-day appointment, our goal is to be complete with your service work to the extent that your RV is operational for you to stay in by the end of each day so you can stay in your RV overnight in our campground area.

Our accommodations include: Fresh Filtered Water, Complimentary high-speed internet, Electrical Hookups, Dumping Facilities and Indoor Delivery Facilities as needed.  We have a comfortable Guest Lounge available with installed Laptop Tables, Complimentary Coffee and the latest in Technology. Your Pets are welcome to join you in the Guest Lounge and throughout our Dealership.

We are committed to your health and safety while you are with us.  We are diligently adhering to all current Local, State, Federal and CDC recommendations regarding the current pandemic and are going above and beyond these to protect the health and safety of our guests and our team members. This has resulted in a change in many of our dealership daily operations. Read More HERE.

The Lichtsinn RV Dealership is conveniently located close to many restaurants, grocery shopping, a laundromat and other conveniences at your disposal while you are staying with us. We are also just 1 mile from the Winnebago Factory so you can enjoy a Winnebago Factory Tour as well while you are in town. Please contact a Lichtsinn RV consultant to confirm if Factory Tours are available.

The RV buying process may be lengthy, but it is an exciting process and finding the perfect dealer to work with makes the experience that much more enjoyable!

Tips for Finding a Reputable RV Dealer: Competitive Financing and Insurance

However, the research process does not end when you’ve decided on that perfect RV, there is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV DEALER to work with. Buyers will want to invest just as much time if not more, in researching RV dealers to make sure they find a reputable dealer to work with.

Competitive Financing and Insurance 

A factor to consider when selecting a dealer to work with is what their internal financing capabilities are and if they offer any other services in their business office.

Lichtsinn RV has relationships with many different lenders who have superior rates and terms so we are able to customize to fit the needs of our guests! Rising interest rates are being forecast for borrower’s in the coming months so it is important to lock in today’s competitive rates. Loans are readily available to qualified buyers looking to purchase the RV of their dreams!

There are great deals available on exciting new and late model RVs and it is a great time to invest in an RV for years of vacation savings.

Deduct your Interest
For the vast majority of RV buyers, the interest on their loan is deductible as a second home mortgage. The RV must be used as security for the loan and provide basic living accommodations such as sleeping area, bathroom and cooking facilities. Virtually all RV types – motorhomes, travel trailers, truck campers and even most folding camping trailers – are equipped with these accommodations and eligible for the tax savings.

Bi-Weekly Payments
At Lichtsinn RV we offer bi-weekly payment options which can save you THOUSANDS over the course of your loan when you make a half payment every other week. This method is extremely convenient as your payments are debited electronically and sent to your lender on your behalf. It makes for easier budgeting, but more importantly, saves you interest and will dramatically decrease the life of your loan and improve the equity you have in your new RV.

Partner with Lichtsinn RV Finance Team
Whether you have the perfect credit score, or a more challenging credit history, our business managers will find the right RV financing option for you.

We work with several lenders to bring you the most competitive and flexible financing options around. We will do whatever we can to help you get the monthly payment and loan term that best suits your budget.

  • We offer financing and are authorized agents for several large major RV banks including Bank of America, US Bank, Bank of the West and several other major lenders.
  • We generally provide a credit application to these banks and allow them to compete for the lowest rate.
  • All of our loans carry no fees at closing, no closing costs and no points.
  • In most cases, the interest can be deducted for tax purposes by qualifying as a second home.
  • We can generally do terms of up to 20 years! Pre-payments can be made in full or in part, at any time, without penalty with nearly all of our lenders. All of our loans are conventional fixed rate loans.
  • We offer both monthly and bi-weekly payment options.

RV Insurance from Lichtsinn RV Insurance

We have found many of our Insurance customers do not have adequate coverage or are simply paying too much for the coverage they do have for their RV insurance. Unfortunately, by the time they realize this they may have already incurred substantial loss or expense.

If you are looking to buy a new RV or just simply looking for possible savings from RV Insurance you’ve already purchased elsewhere, one of our Insurance Consultants can provide you a no-obligation insurance quote.

The RV buying process may be lengthy, but it is an exciting process and finding the perfect dealer to work with makes the experience that much more enjoyable!

Whether it’s your first RV and you’ve decided the RV lifestyle is now for you or you’re a seasoned RVer ready for your next home you’ll spend a lot of time researching the perfect RV for your needs. However, the research process does not end when you’ve decided on that perfect RV, there is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV DEALER to work with. Buyers will want to invest just as much time if not more, in researching RV dealers to make sure they find a reputable dealer to work with.

“There is another important step that many people forget… finding the perfect RV dealer to work with.”

Let’s face it, there are a lot of lousy RV dealerships out there. Unfortunately, in the race to find the lowest possible rig price, many people choose to buy from dealers who do not have a history of great customer service and outstanding RV repair. Know in advance that the lowest price is not usually synonymous with the best buying experience. In our blog series we will cover items you should be looking for in your RV Dealer.

Online Inventory, Resources and Information – A majority of RV purchases today start with online research, so as a buyer you can compare one RV to another in the comfort of your own home. As you are doing so, take note of what information dealers provide online. Is it limited…leaving you to wonder what are they leaving out?  Is it laid out poorly making it hard to understand and if so, what does this say about what an in-dealership experience with them might look like? That’s why it’s important to find an RV Dealer that is transparent with this information, providing any and all RV information online in addition to verbally. Pricing may not always be available due to manufacturer pricing restrictions, but is all of the other information readily available? Items including Window Sticker, Option Itemization Breakdown (if ordering new), Vehicle History (on preowned), a warranty on preowned etc. are all important factors to look at when purchasing an RV.

Online Inventory

Many dealers are so focused on the race to the sale, they may not take the time to thoroughly understand what the buyer’s RVing needs are instead trying to push them into an RV that has been sitting on the lot for too long or an RV that they are being incentivized to sell by the dealer or the manufacturer. They may try to shortcut the RV buying process providing limited information and detail on the RV and the dealerships “after the sale” availability.

This is a critical question – How much will the dealer support you AFTER you buy your RV? What resources do they have available to you? If you have questions about your RV after you leave the dealers lot, do you have dealership resources to contact and will they actually be available to answer your questions?  What other resources are available to you including informational videos on the RV you purchased regarding usage and maintenance items? What does the dealerships follow up with you after your purchase look like, not only in the short term but the long term of your RV ownership?

At Lichtsinn RV our intent is to be as thorough as possible with the information  we provide online for our motorhomes for sale, this includes video and over 100 photos on every RV. If there are any additional questions we may not have covered we can answer them over the Phone, Email or Chat or even show them virtually through our LIVE Video Appointment option. Window stickers are included online for all new RVs. For those wishing to order an RV we review the options available with you and provide you an option sheet directly from the manufacturer so you can see everything available. We know that purchasing an RV is a big investment, regardless of the price. We will take the time to thoroughly understand how you plan to use the RV to help find the best RV for you, providing you any needed resources and taking as long as you need to ultimately decide which RV is right for you.

At Lichtsinn RV, Winnebagos are the only New Motorhomes we carry. This allows our team to focus on Winnebago motorhomes exclusively and create unique Winnebago Product and How-To-Videos specific to Winnebago RV Models. So whether you are in the research phase of determining the best RV for you, or you’ve purchased an RV and are wondering how a feature works, or looking for RV maintenance help, you can find it in the Lichtsinn RV Video Library. At Lichtsinn RV we know your Lichtsinn RV Experience starts from the moment you pick up the phone or chat with us online and extends throughout the lifetime of your RV ownership. Your sales consultant will be in touch with you regularly to see if you have any questions during your RV ownership, your assigned Parts, Service and Business Office Team Members will work with you to ensure you enjoy your RV experience throughout the life of your RV.

The RV buying process may be lengthy, but it is an exciting process and finding the perfect dealer to work with makes the experience that much more enjoyable!
