The Lichtsinn RV Advantage: Best Inspection in the Business

As more and more people join the RVing community throughout the country, one thing is certain, Motorhomes have become increasingly complicated with advancements in RV electrical systems, heating and cooling, plumbing, space-making slide outs and internet connectivity.

These aren’t the machines our parents’ generation traveled in.  As a result, the importance of the pre-delivery inspection has grown exponentially.  A pre-delivery inspection (PDI) is exactly what it sounds like.  At Lichtsinn RV, we thoroughly inspect your new or pre-owned motorhome before you take possession of your RV.

Best Pre-Delivery Inspection in the Industry

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. Know in advance that the lowest price is not usually synonymous with the best buying experience.

At Lichtsinn RV, before you take possession of your RV, it will go through an extensive pre-delivery inspection. During this inspection one of our technicians perform an exhaustive series of tests on your RVs functional systems and they also look for cosmetic and fitment issues.  They work with a checklist of 172 items that they inspect on each new RV.  Each RV is also road tested.

Every RV pre-delivery inspection takes at least four hours and is valued at over $600.   However, we don’t charge you for this service as some dealers do.  It is simply part of our commitment to providing you the best RV experience possible.

Advanced Technology Requires Advanced Training

Your pre-delivery inspection will be completed by one of our factory trained RVTI Certified RV Technicians. This certification provides you the assurance that the technician working on your RV has the specific skills needed to do so.

Many of our technicians have also actually previously worked at Winnebago and have unique product knowledge due to this experience that many others may not have.

Our technicians are among the most knowledgeable RV technicians in the country.  They are experts on every motorhome Winnebago sells…inside and out.

Why is a Good Inspection Important?

We’ve read the horror stories in online forums and heard from guests who have previously bought elsewhere about buying an RV from a dealership that doesn’t put an emphasis on pre-delivery inspections.  Or they simply don’t perform them at all — Here are the keys!  Enjoy!  Then 1000 miles down the road you have big, big problems.

At Lichtsinn RV we’d rather handle things before you get here to pick up your RV.  Our thorough inspection helps us to find issues ahead of your arrival. If there is an issue, we fix it.  With our close proximity to the Winnebago factory we can often get the needed parts the same day. When you come here for delivery, if you should find any issues while you are here, again, we just have a quick 1 mile trip to Winnebago to get the part needed for your RV to get you on the road and our certified technicians have the expertise to do so.

Stay In Our Campground; Get to Know Your Motorhome

After a thorough orientation on your RV, we invite you to stay in your RV on our on-site campground. This allows you to put your new or used motorhome through the paces.  There is so much information covered in your complimentary orientation, it is easy to forget a thing or two. This provides you the opportunity to stay overnight with us, so that we are available just outside your doorstep the next day to answer any questions that you may have.

Our Team Will Stand Behind You

It’s inevitable. Occasionally an issue arises on a system that tested fine during the inspection.  Unlike many dealerships, we are there for you until you get the issue resolved whether it is something we do internally or if it requires a chassis dealer or a 3rd party vendor.   At Lichtsinn RV our relationship goes far beyond your initial RV purchase. The Lichtsinn RV team will stand behind you for the life of your RV.
