Branstad Campaign Purchases RV from Lichtsinn Motors
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Branstad campaign purchases RV from Lichtsinn Motors
1/25/2010, Forest City, Iowa -- Gov. Terry Branstad's "Comeback Express" vehicle has been busy traveling across the state of Iowa over the last week but the Itasca Navion motor home began its journey in Forest City when Lichtsinn Motors sold the RV to the campaign.
The "Comeback Express" Itasca Navion was unveiled on Monday, Jan. 18, at Branstad's campaign headquarters and was used to transport the governor during his 17-city, 4-day "Iowa Comeback Tour." It will also be the official campaign vehicle during the entire 2010 re-election campaign.
"We're used to selling motor homes to individuals and businesses but it's always exciting when a political campaign calls and is looking for a touring vehicle," said Ron Lichtsinn, owner of Lichtsinn Motors.
The motor home is an Itasca Navion 23H -- a popular Class C motor home that can achieve up to 18 miles per gallon.
Itasca is a line of motor homes manufactured by Winnebago Industries in Forest City. Lichtsinn Motors is located one mile away from the Winnebago factory.
