Why Buy from Lichtsinn RV – Extensive RV Orientation

There are several reasons to buy your next RV from Lichtsinn RV – one of which is our complimentary educational orientation. Regardless of the price tag of the RV you purchased, there is no doubt it is one of the largest investments you’ve made. With all of the components in an RV, chassis and shell/living space related, even the most savvy RVer will have some new things to learn when they move into a new RV.

That is why at Lichtsinn RV we provide a complimentary thorough walk-around orientation (valued at over $600 based on what some dealers charge for this) with any RV purchase at the time of delivery. During this educational orientation, a Winnebago product specialist will ensure you know how to use your RV by covering each switch, feature, maintenance and warranty item.

Orientation

This orientation may be done in person or we also provide the option of a video orientation. We can do the video orientation in one of two ways. Many of our guests prefer a LIVE orientation. In this case we provide you a link that you simply click on and you can see the Winnebago Specialist LIVE providing you an orientation of your RV in the comfort of your home or while sitting in your trade-in. Since this is a LIVE format, you can ask questions as you go along, ask to review certain things in more detail etc. just like you would in person. For those guests that aren’t able to coordinate time to do this, we have the option of a pre-recorded orientation where our product specialist provides an orientation of your RV that we record and then provide you a link to view it online. Your sales consultant will answer any questions that arise after viewing the orientation.

We encourage our sales guests to stay on site at least one night in their new RV with us in our on-site campground. This way we are here for them the next morning to answer any questions that may have come up overnight.  AND…your dedicated personal Lichtsinn RV Sales, Parts, Service and Business Office Team Members will be here for you after you leave the dealership to ensure that you enjoy your RV experience throughout the life of your RV.

Top 5 Suggestions on RVing with Pets

RVs are a great way to travel offering you the flexibility to go where you want when you want and to bring your pets along for the ride! With a little bit of extra planning, traveling with pets can enhance your RVing experience.

Traveling with pets can be made more enjoyable with these 5 Traveling with Pets suggestions.

Camping with pets

  1. Pet Gear and Essentials – You’ll want to bring a leash and/or harness, a pet stake for outside your coach, shampoo, brush/comb, waste pick up bags any flea/tick and heartworm medication (and any other medications) your pet might need while traveling and of course food and pet bowls ( for food and water.) You’ll also want to bring any special blankets, pillows or other items that will help them sleep. A sound machine might be helpful as well to keep outside sounds at bay during the night so you AND your pet/s can have a restful night sleep.
  1. Pet Safety – Always secure your pet when driving in the RV either in a seat belt harness or secured carrier. Driving needs your full attention with no pet distractions and this will keep your pet safe should you have an accident (just as your seatbelt protects you.) As you travel to new surroundings that your pet is not accustomed to they may get away from you. Ensure your pet has an updated ID Tag if they are not chipped (and even if they are for more speedy recognition). Bring along a photo of your pet in case they should get lost and even vaccination records may be needed in case your dog needs vet car along the way.
  1. Exercise – Ensure your campground is pet friendly and has open spaces for your pet/s to roam. Exercising your pet/s is important, get them outside to run and play. This is an adventure for them as well! This goes the same for while your traveling. Make plenty of bathroom breaks along the way which will also allow your pet/s to stretch their legs.
  1. Pet Safety While You Are Out – If you plan on leaving your pet for any period of time in the RV – you’ll want to be sure have your RV plugged in with a generator backup (in case there is a power outage at the campground) or have another power source to keep your pets cool enough/warm enough while you are out. Many RVers have a PET ON BOARD sign as well to notify others that there are pets onboard that will need to rescued should there be a campground emergency.
  1. Be a Good Neighbor – From picking up after your pet to limiting their barking (or any loud noises they might make) to obeying the campground leash laws being a good neighbor to the campers parked around you is important.

At Lichtsinn RV many of our guests bring their pets along when picking up a new RV or when here for service work. We’ve seen dogs, cats, parrots and more come through our front doors. RVing provides amazing outdoor experiences and who better to bring along but your four legged babies. A little bit of planning will go along way in ensuring you and your pet enjoy your trip!

RVs Are a Preferable Way to Travel

Are RVs Easy to Drive? 

Top 5 Suggestions on RVing with Kids

RVing allows you the freedom to roam where you want and when you want…and allows you to easily bring your grandchildren or younger children with you.

With the changes in RV offerings over the past couple of years we are seeing more and more families with children and grandparents with grandchildren hitting the road for RV adventures.

But how do you travel with kids “smoothly”…or as “smoothly as possible?” Here are our Top 5 suggestions for making your travels with little ones more enjoyable.

Traveling with kids

  1. Trip Planning

If possible, getting the kids involved in trip planning can help build excitement before and during the trip. What are attractions or other things they’d like to see or experience? Planning ahead is always helpful, but especially when traveling with little ones. Plan for shorter travel days than you might otherwise when you are traveling with children and likely some extra stops for everyone to stretch their legs.

  1. Keep Organized

In any RV your space is more limited than it would be in a house. Keeping yourself and your little ones organized throughout your trip will allow you more time to enjoy your adventures and less time being frustrated by the clutter. Planning ahead, possibly investing in some storage solutions and limiting what you bring (hard to do with kids but necessary) will go miles in keeping your RV organized.

  1. Entertainment

As you Travel from Point A to Point B in your RV, planning what activities the kids will do is important both while on the road as well as once you get to your camping site! While en route, it will help the driver stay focused (without loud distractions due to boredom) and will make the time for everyone go more quickly. Once you arrive at your camp site, planned activities (games, cards, coloring books etc.) are helpful to fill down time and other time you are forced to come inside due to inclement weather. For younger children creating an outdoor play area on an outdoor mat allows them to have their own area outside as well.

  1. Sleeping Arrangements

Spend some time thoughtfully planning where everyone will sleep and what they will need to sleep comfortably. If someone in the RV isn’t sleeping well…no one sleeps well! The lack of sleep can carry over and ruin your adventures the next day.

If you need to leave something at home to make space for something that will aid in sleeping, it’s worth it! A sound machine or other sort of tranquil sleeping machine or app may help keep the outside noises at bay and help everyone sleep more soundly. Even while creating memories of a lifetime, keeping with a consistent bedtime schedule and routine helps everyone sleep better as well.

  1. SNACKS

While en route or even once you get to your campsite having plenty of snacks (quick snacks, and not so quick) will make your trip with kids more enjoyable. Possibly bring some along that they can help make. All of that fresh air increases those little (and big) appetites. Don’t forget the S’mores!

Take a deep breath and enjoy your time together.  While traveling with children may at first seem overwhelming it is a great way to get out and have some quality time with your young ones. Keep in mind the traveling is part of the adventure (not just the destination) and enjoy your time with your little ones. The memories and experiences you create will last forever, while their youth will not.

RVing 101: 6 Myths about RVing Busted

There may be some misconceptions about RVing and we are here to bust some common myths about RVing and motorhomes.

Myth #1: RVs are big boxes and difficult to drive.

Winnebago does manufacture larger Class A motorhomes like the Vista and Horizon. The most popular motorhomes on the market are the small Class B campervans and the Class C compact coaches. Winnebago Boldt

Class B campervans like the Winnebago Travato or Revel are built on the inside of a van chassis from RAM ProMaster or Mercedes-Benz. They are totally enclosed and range in size from 19’ to 23’ and achieve great gas mileage. They have a variety of features and options that allow owners to camp off-the-grid and easily pick up and go to the next location.

Class C compact coaches like the Winnebago View are slightly larger than the Class B campervans measuring at 26’. They will sleep up to 6 and have more storage. They are still extremely maneuverable and will fit in a driveway or a remote campground.

Myth #2: Motorhomes get terrible gas mileage.

The gas mileage for motorhomes is dependent on the type of RV, how you have it loaded, how fast you are going and at what incline. We have heard that our guests can get 18 – 20 mpg in some of our Class B motorhomes going 55-65 mph.The Winnebago Travato

Myth #3: I need to have a special license to operate a motorhome.

Generally, it is not required to have a special license to operate a motorhome under 26,000-lbs. You will want to check your state DMV to get the rules and regulations in your individual state.

Myth #4: RVing is only for retirees.

RVing has become extremely popular with all age groups, especially millennials. Millennials are the fastest growing segment entering the RV market and Winnebago is responding. RVs are coming in contemporary designs with features that allow owners to work while on the road.Millennials in a Revel

The Winnebago Solis comes with a flip down workstation under the bed.

Myth #5: You have to stay in one place if you are RVing.

That is the best part of RVing… you can choose where you are going next. You can travel across the country in your home, with your bed, your kitchen, and your bathroom!

Myth #6: You have to buy your Winnebago from your local dealer.

As part of all Winnebago Dealer’s agreement with Winnebago, they have to work on Winnebago products no matter where the motorhome is sold. A Lichtsinn RV employee will never ask you where you bought your RV from we will happily service it for you.

RV Class Types Explained A, B, C

Whether you are new to RVing or perhaps new to “motorized” RVing one of the first things you’ll discover is there are different RV Classes: Class A, Class B and Class C RVs and different comforts and accessibility that come with each.

Class A RV’s

Class A

Class A RV’s are large “bus shaped RVs” with a large front windshield. Winnebago Class A RVs run in length between 28’5” (The Winnebago Vista 27P and the Winnebago Adventurer 27N) and 43’3” in the Winnebago Horizon 42Q. Winnebago offers both gas and diesel Class A models that sleep between 6-8 people.

These larger Class A Motorhome floorplans allow you to have many of the amenities of home including models with: a king sized bed, a guest bathroom (master bath plus a ½ bath), washer and dryer and ample storage space in and outside of the coach to allow you to bring the comforts from home with you (and some use the RV as their fulltime home.) Certain Class A models also include an outside entertainment area complete with a TV Entertainment System and Tailgate Package including a small kitchen with a refrigerator, a small sink and storage.

With the longer Class A RV lengths you do typically sacrifice fuel efficiency averaging 6-10 miles per gallon and are sometimes limited on where you can park/camp. Winnebago Class A Gas models include: The Winnebago Intent, the Winnebago Vista and Winnebago Sunstar, and the Winnebago Adventure each built on the Ford Chassis. Winnebago Class A Diesel models include: The Winnebago Forza and the Winnebago Horizon built on the Freightliner XCS and Maxum Chassis.

Class B RV’s

Class B

 

Class B Vans are typically the smallest motorized RV’s, also referred to as Campervans. Due to their petite length they are more agile than RVs in the other RV classes and can drive and park most anywhere.

Winnebago Class B RVs run between 19’7” (the Winnebago Revel) to 22’11” in length (The Winnebago Boldt). This shorter length allows Class B owners to get easily where they need to go to enjoy their next adventurer. Some Class B RV’s are available in 4WD which allows owners even more flexibility on the terrain they can travel on.

Class B RVs are also available in gas and diesel models each of which boast high fuel efficiency with 18-22mpg. They have available sleeping between 2-4 people and due to their small footprint include many creative storage solutions. Winnebago Class B RVs are equipped with a kitchen, a Wet Bath, Sleeping Area and Seating/Dining Area. Winnebago Class B Gas models include: The Winnebago Solis and the Winnebago Travato on the Dodge RAM ProMaster Chassis. Winnebago Class B Diesel models include: The Winnebago Revel, The Winnebago Era and the Winnebago Boldt all on the Mercedes Sprinter Diesel Chassis.

 Class C RV’s

Class C

 

Winnebago Class C RV’s fit right in between Class A and B models. They are available in the longer lengths like the Class A RVs with some of the same amenities, but many owners feel they are easier to drive than the Class A “bus style” RVs. Winnebago Class C RVs are available in both Gas and Diesel models ranging in fuel efficiency between 8-18 mpg (the diesel on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Chassis achieve 16-18 mpg while the gas powered models on the Ford Chassis tend to achieve between 8-10 mpg.)
Winnebago Class C RVs run between 24’5” (the Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit 22M) to 32’9” in length (The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit 31H and 31K). Winnebago offers both gas and diesel Class C models that sleep between 4-8 people. All Class C floorplans provide you with a full kitchen, full bath and ample storage.

Winnebago Class C Gas models include: The Winnebago Minnie Winnie and Spirit and the Winnebago Outlook on the Ford Chassis. Winnebago Class C Diesel models include: The Winnebago View and Navion and the Winnebago Vita and Porto on the Mercedes Benz Sprinter Diesel Chassis.

The Motorhome market can seem vast, however, once you’ve determined the “Class” of RV that best fits your needs you can narrow in on the perfect RV for you.
