You will Experience the Best at Lichtsinn RV! Starting when you pick up the phone or chat with us online, you will see why the Lichtsinn RV Experience is the best.

One of the key advantages of buying your new Winnebago from Lichtsinn RV is our proximity to Winnebago’s Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. Our dealership is located 1 mile from Winnebago Industries, so if you buy a 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.

Watch our Experience the Best – No Delivery Miles video here

Picking up your brand-new Winnebago motorhome is a day filled with excitement and wonder as you explore and test every component, part and gadget in your RV. After you wrap up your day at the dealership, the sales person hands you the keys to your new rig and you are off to enjoy your first night in your RV. As you hit the open road, you look down and realize your brand-new Winnebago already has 1,000+ miles on it… But how is that possible if the Winnebago is new? RVs are too big to be transported using semis, so RV manufacturers hire drivers to drive an RV from where it is built to the dealer. So, your RV will arrive with hundreds to thousands of miles on the engine and who knows what else…

Do you know where your Winnebago was before you took the keys? Learn more here

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. Winnebago and 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.

March Motorhome Madness: Travato vs. Revel

In the spirit of March Madness, we at Lichtsinn RV will be comparing various Winnebago motorhome models. The first in our March Motorhome Madness is the Travato versus Revel. Both the Travato and the Revel have off-grid capabilities and are small and agile Class B motorhomes.

Winnebago Travato 

Based on the powerful, fuel efficient ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the van life revolution since its launch.  Estimated to achieve 18 to 22 mpg highway, at only 21 feet long the Travato offers all of the comforts of home in a nimble, efficient van.

SEE OUR WINNEBAGO TRAVATO INVENTORY HERE

The Winnebago Travato comes in four floorplans – the 59G, 59K, 59GL, and 59KL. Based on the powerful, fuel-efficient Ram ProMaster chassis, the Travato has been at the forefront of the camper van revolution since its launch in 2014. Thanks to premium features such as the energy-saving Truma Combi eco plus heating, the Deluxe FROLI sleeping system and Corian countertops, the new Travato is better than ever. With significantly upgraded standard features like 200-watt solar panels and new interior décor colorways, alongside several options, you can tailor the Travato to suit your needs.

This fully integrated system includes a powerful 3,600-watt pure sine inverter that offers 30 amps. of power at any time, powering air conditioning and appliances wherever you go. The best part of this hassle-free system is that it operates on the push of a button and a simple analog gauge that tells you how much energy remains. With the same automotive-grade technology used in hybrid vehicles and EV applications, this newly advanced lithium energy system provides better value, ease of use, and confidence as you travel, live, work, and play.

Taking full advantage of the proven 4×4 Mercedes-Benz 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 heating, 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 roof mounted AC system all contribute to the Revel’s off the grid livability.

5 Hikes with Stunning Waterfalls

Whether it’s the mystery of why and how a nearly infinite amount of water cascades over incredible cliff sides, or it’s the mesmerizing echo of roaring water that captivates us, one thing is for sure—waterfalls are one of the most incredible displays of Mother Nature’s power.

So, whether you’re looking to stand above, beneath, or even behind an epic waterfall, we have you covered. We’ve put together the best hikes in the states where spectacular waterfalls steal the spotlight.

Havasu Canyon; Supai, Arizona

Havasu Canyon | Supai, Arizona

Hidden within remote red cliffs and caverns of the Grand Canyon lies an isolated paradise known for its aquamarine cascading waterfalls and travertine pools. Havasu Canyon, a precious and vigorously protected area, sits at the top of every adventurous backpackers’ bucket list.

Merely reaching the trailhead of this desert gem requires patience, planning, and a little bit of luck though. The Havasupai Tribe is intimately connected to these crystalline waters and regulate the region to make sure it’s well-respected.

Day hiking to the falls isn’t permitted, so to plant your boots along the strenuous 10-mile trail you’ll need to get your hands on a coveted reservation and commit to a minimum three-night stay. But once you’re there, we’re pretty sure taking a dip beneath five infamous blue-green falls will keep you calm and captivated.

Keep in mind, this trail isn’t necessarily for beginner backpackers. Summer temps can reach up to 115 degrees, the terrain is unpredictable, and emergency facilities are very few and far between. It’s important to properly prepare and know the risks associated with a trip to the dazzling falls that decorate Havasu Creek.

The Mist Trail | Yosemite National Park, CA

Visitors flock to Yosemite National Park each year to experience the illustrious 2,425-foot Yosemite Falls. And, rightfully so, Yosemite Falls isn’t only one of the tallest waterfalls in the country—it’s a bonafide California icon.

But if you’re in search of waterfall views that you can’t see from the front seat of your car, we recommend you tackle Yosemite’s signature hike, the Mist Trail.

Following the lively Merced river, you’ll conquer 1,000 feet in elevation, 1.5 miles of uphill hiking, and 600 stone steps before reaching the top of 317-foot Vernal Fall, one of the most powerful waterfalls in Yosemite. Some hikers stop here for a snack and head back to the car, but if you have a little more gas in the tank, continue on for 1.3 miles to reach 594-foot Nevada Fall.

The falls thrive in spring and early summer, and the incredible amount of mist (hence the name) from the waterfalls can be a pleasant treat on a hot summer day. Just watch your footing—wet granite can make this trek pretty slippery at times.

Trail of Ten Falls | Silver Falls State Park, OR

The Pacific Northwest knows a thing or two about waterfalls, and nothing proves that point quite like the Trail of Ten Falls. Not only is this trek considered one of the best in Oregon, but it’s also a must-see for anyone with a serious case of waterfall wanderlust.

In fact, the Trail of Ten Falls is home to the second highest concentration of waterfalls in the entire state of Oregon, and there are no less than 10 waterfalls along this modest, 8-mile trail.

And you don’t have to admire the falls from afar. You’ll feel the power of the rushing water as it cascades from canyon cliffs above. That’s right, after weaving through pristine old growth forest, the trail passes directly behind several notorious waterfalls, including 177-foot South falls and 136-foot North Falls.

Gorge Trail | Watkins Glen State Park, New York

Watkins Glen State Park is a New York state gem defined by a majestic 400-foot narrow, hanging gorge and a legendary waterfall-dense trail system. The Gorge Trail, one of few trails available in the park, is arguably one of the most scenic 2-mile treks you can take in the state and features 19 unique waterfalls that are bounded by incredible 200-foot limestone cliffs.

The trail starts from a dark spiraling tunnel that was cut into the cliff-side before descending into a world of natural stone architecture and lush green wilderness.

Following the gorge, the trail meanders past Glen Creek, over charming stone bridges, and negotiates over 800 stone steps. The trail’s appeal, however, comes mainly from the ability to walk directly behind several waterfalls including Cavern Cascade, which plunges nearly 60 feet to the canyon floor.

Cummins Falls | Cummins Falls State Park, Tennessee

Cummins Falls isn’t your everyday cascading waterfall. According to locals, this 75-foot hidden treasure has been the prime swimming hole for escaping Tennessee summer days for over 100 years.

Rumor has it, until recently, hikers had to earn their dip beneath Cummins Falls by scrambling down a treacherous, unmarked trail and wading in ankle-deep water. Today, 211-acre Cummins Falls State Park and its namesake waterfall are protected by the state of Tennessee, and the 2.5-mile trek to the falls are far more accessible.

Still, avid adventurers will appreciate that despite its recent enhancements, the trail to Cummins Falls still requires a bit of on-trail ingenuity. If you want to wade in the natural pools below the falls, you’ll want to prepare for river crossings and expect to traverse some sizable boulders on the river bend.
