Tips for Finding a Reputable RV Dealer: The Dealership Team

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.

Lichtsinn RV FAQs – Do You Offer Financing?

At Lichtsinn RV, we help guests from across North America purchase their Winnebago Motorhomes. Our Business Office will work directly with you to provide you financing options. Our Business Office Managers work with several national lenders allowing you to receive the most competitive finance rates available. We have relationships with many different lenders who have superior rates and terms so we are able to customize the terms to fit your needs. Some of the benefits of working with a Lichtsinn RV Business Office Manager are listed below.

Finance

Deduct your Interest
For many RV buyers, the interest on your loan is deductible as a second home mortgage. The RV is used as security for the loan and must provide basic living accommodations such as a sleeping area, bathroom and cooking facilities. Most 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
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 convenient as your payments are debited electronically and sent to your lender on your behalf. It allows 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.

Our Business Managers work for you. 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 across the country to bring you the most competitive and flexible financing options available. We will do whatever we can to help you get the monthly payment and loan term that best suits your budget. All of our loans carry no fees at closing, no closing costs and no points and 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.

The bottom line is that if you are researching buying an RV, you should look into Lichtsinn RV financing options to maximize your purchase enjoyment. You’ll be on the road enjoying your New RV or Preowned RV before you know it!

In order to provide you with the best rate possible, please contact us directly so our Business Office can shop for the best rates available for you.

FAQs – What Does “Cash/Trade” Mean on New RV Listings?

At Lichtsinn RV, we help guests from across North America purchase their Winnebago Motorhomes. To help you start your research process each RV listing on our website includes a price. For Preowned RVs this appears as a “Retail Price.” New RVs are listed with the “MSRP” (Manufacturer Suggested Retail Price: shown below).

Cash Trade Amount

 

To protect our factory discounted pricing and honor our Winnebago Dealer Agreement, we do not post our actual new RV sales pricing online. What we do list is the MSRP and then a cash/trade amount and a loan amount to get you to the monthly payment amount. This is purely a demonstrative example showing that if you start with an MSRP of $X, then have either cash or trade valued at the cash/trade amount, then you are left with the balance as the loan amount. Each RV sale is unique based on whether you are putting cash down or providing a trade-in vehicle and/or taking out a loan and the finance rate will vary dependent on credit score.

To get pricing that best fits your purchase situation, please speak with a Lichtsinn RV Sales Consultant.

Lichtsinn RV FAQs – What Does “No Delivery Miles” Mean?

At Lichtsinn RV, we help guests from across North America purchase their Winnebago Motorhomes. One of the reasons guests travel to us from all across the country is a MAJOR advantage to buying at Lichtsinn RV, our proximity to Winnebago’s Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. Our dealership is located just 1 mile from Winnebago Industries, so if you buy a new Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV you don’t have to worry about whether a delivery driver ate, drank, or lived in your brand-new RV before you could.

1 Mile

New Winnebago Motorhomes from Lichtsinn RV have no delivery miles or tow car stress on them. We do not use delivery services like other dealers in which drivers live in the RV during transportation. No one will Eat, Drink, or Live in your new investment or tow their own personal car with it during the crucial engine break-in period.

A dealer that is more geographically proximate to you might not tell you about how crucial the first 1,000 miles is for engine break-in because your Winnebago could arrive with 1,000 miles or more on it before you even step foot inside the coach. The chassis manufacturers have recommendations for breaking in the engine. When you purchase from Lichtsinn RV you can control the critical break-in period and not leave it up to a delivery driver towing their personal vehicle across the country with your new RV.

Call your Lichtsinn RV Sales Consultant to find the perfect new Winnebago RV for you, with NO Delivery  Miles.

At Lichtsinn RV, we help guests from across North America purchase their Winnebago RVs. Our factory discounted pricing affords our guests the ability to travel to us and still often maintain a lower cost than their local dealer. See a Lichtsinn RV Sold Guest Map HERE.

Buy Out of State

Guests traveling to Lichtsinn RV to purchase their RV either drive their trade to us or take advantage of our airport transportation service from either the Des Moines International Airport (DSM) or Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP) both are approximately 2 hours away from Lichtsinn RV. There is also a municipal airport (MCW) located just 30 minutes from us.

All tax and title fees are paid in the state of title, there are no additional fees to purchase in Iowa. When the motorhome is picked up at the dealership, we will provide all the necessary documents to bring to the buyer’s local vehicle registration office and will provide a temporary license plate for travel home. Our Title Clerk is in regular communications with DMVs across the country helping our guests with this process if needed.

A common concern from RVers is where they can get service if they don’t purchase from their local dealer. All Winnebago Dealer’s have committed in their Dealer Agreement to service Winnebago RVs even if they were not purchased from their location. Often, we find when service issues do arise it is when our guests are on the road away from home. Our Service Advisors are regularly on the phone with guests with recommendations on where to receive service wherever they might be throughout the country.

At Lichtsinn RV, over the years, we have helped thousands of guests from all across the Unites States and Canada purchase their Winnebago RVs. To find additional information about this process please contact a Lichtsinn RV Sales Consultant.

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.
