What Sets Lichtsinn RV Apart From Other Dealerships

Here at Lichtsinn RV, our dedication to our guests starts from the moment you pick up the phone or chat with us online and extends throughout the lifetime of your RV ownership. Beyond this level of dedication, we also offer many other benefits that set us apart from other RV dealers, including extremely knowledgeable sales, parts and services teams, superior accommodations and more.

Continue reading to learn more about what sets us apart from other dealerships and how you can Experience the Best® with our Lichtsinn RV team.

Located Only 1-Mile From the Winnebago Factory

One of the major advantages of purchasing from Lichtsinn RV is our proximity to the Winnebago Motorhome Division in Forest City, Iowa. This means that when you purchase a new Winnebago RV, you will BE THE FIRST to put miles and tow a vehicle behind your new motorhome. We do not use delivery services like other dealership during which the driver may eat, drink or live in your new investment. They may even tow their personal vehicle which affects the crucial engine break-in period for a new RV.

What Exactly is the “Crucial RV Engine Break-in Period?”

Winnebago Product Expertise

Another benefit of being only 1-mile from the Winnebago factory is the availability of extensive product training for not only our sales team, but also parts and service teams. Winnebago is the only new motorhome line that we sell which allows our sales, parts and service teams to focus their training specifically on Winnebago product. Our sales consultants receive daily Winnebago Product Training and are afforded the unique opportunity to review new product as well as model year changes up front.

Not only is our sales team able to receive this exclusive training opportunity, both our parts and service teams are able to complete factory-direct training to help better diagnose service questions or supply parts from either our own warehouse or Winnebago’s warehouse.

Guest Reviews

Another item that makes Lichtsinn RV stand out from other dealerships is the complete transparency we provide on reviews offered from our guests. It is a common practice among other dealers to hide their reviews from potential guests. However, we greatly encourage guests to learn more about our Lichtsinn RV team through reviews posted to Facebook and Google.

At Lichtsinn RV, we know that a guest’s experience after they purchase their RV is equally if not more important than their experience before and during the purchase process. This is one reason we pride ourselves on being transparent with our reviews, as you will find many instances where guests refer to their positive experiences with our sales, parts and service teams along every step of their RV journey, including follow up support after the initial RV purchase.

Online Buying Experience

Because of multiple factors, at Lichtsinn RV we are able to deliver an online purchase process with a level of convenience that other dealerships simply cannot match. With our extensive inventory of both new and used motorhomes, our sales consultants will answer any and all of your questions to help with your RV search and provide no-hassle sales pricing without you ever having to visit our dealership. We assist guests from all over the country daily, so when selecting an RV, we provide the option to schedule a live appointment from the comfort of your own home or office to see an RV live and we can answer any questions you might have just as if you were here on our lot.

Once you have found the perfect RV for you, the next steps are just as easy to complete from home and online. You will work with our Business Office team to draft a standard motor vehicle purchase agreement outlining everything previously discussed with your sales consultant, provide a down payment, and sign your purchase agreement electronically. When this process is complete, the planning process for the future delivery of your new or “new-to-you” motorhome will begin.

Once the time has come to set your delivery date, it is time to plan your trip to our dealership. We provide courtesy transportation from the nearby Minneapolis/St. Paul (MSP) or Des Moines (DSM) International Airports, as well as the Mason City Municipal Airport (MCW). Before your visit, we will also schedule your comprehensive orientation to go over every facet of your motorhome.

As you can see, our dedication to providing an easy online purchase process is a dealership service that sets us apart from the rest.

Competitive Financing

Another factor that makes Lichtsinn RV the preferred dealership for your RV search is our access to superior and competitive financing offers and the many other services offered by our Business Office team. We have established relationships with a range of lenders that offer superior rates and terms while also being capable of customizing your loan to fit your specific needs.

Our Business Office is able to offer multiple other benefits that make them a superior choice when compared to other dealership’s internal financing capabilities. A few examples of this include the possibility to deduct your interest, bi-weekly payments to save you thousands of dollars over the course of your loan, superior insurance options, and more.

As shown in the previous examples, at Lichtsinn RV, we offer a wide range of services that other dealerships simply do not offer. Another example of this, that our guests value and we often hear about in guest reviews – is our extensive educational orientations. Whether you are picking up a brand-new Winnebago motorhome or a used RV from our inventory, a half-day educational orientation by a factory-trained Lichtsinn RV specialist is included. This thorough walkthrough of your new or “new-to-you” motorhome may cost you over $600 at another dealership yet is a complimentary service provided with any Lichtsinn RV RV purchase. The orientation is scheduled ahead of time with your delivery date to ensure that a Lichtsinn RV specialist has a dedicated time to cover each switch, feature, maintenance and warranty item and more.

If you prefer, you can also schedule a virtual orientation. Your orientation specialist will provide a website link where you can experience the walkthrough from the comfort of your home, office, or even while sitting in your potential trade-in. Because this is a live format, you can ask questions, request a backtrack to review a detail in further detail and more – just as you would in-person.

#1 Parts Store in the Country

Yet another great advantage of choosing Lichtsinn RV over other dealerships is our expansive, on-site RV parts and accessories store. With access to not only our own parts warehouse, but also Winnebago’s warehouse, we are able to help with all of your parts needs should anything come up in the future of your motorhome ownership. Not only that, during your visit to the dealership for your delivery date and expansive walkthrough orientation, one of our specialists can help you find all of the necessary accessories and amenities to get you on the road and off to your first adventure.

If you have parts needs further down the road, as the closest dealer to the Winnebago Factory we are able to provide you nationwide 1-3 day shipping on all in-stock parts from our warehouse and Winnebago’s.

Campground Accommodations

Another reason to choose our Lichtsinn RV team over other dealerships includes our superior campground accommodations. This is another feature of our location that is consistently mentioned in reviews from our guests. After having gone through the entire process of purchasing your RV from our dealership and learning about your motorhome during your extensive orientation, you can settle in for a night/s of “practice” camping at our campground without ever having to leave the lot. With complimentary electrical hookups, fresh filtered water, dumping facilities and high speed internet, you have yet another opportunity to learn and ask questions of our team after a night/s of camping before heading home.
