Livin’ Lite Gets No. 1 Rating in Consumer Pub

Wakarusa, Indiana-based Livin’ Lite Recreational Vehicles received a No. 1 rating for ultra-lightweight towables from third-party, consumer-produced JR Consumer Resources.

Livin’ Lite was the only manufacturer to garner an overall rating of “10” – the highest possible rating – in the highly competitive category, according to a news release.

There were also “above average” and “economy” categories.

“A couple of months ago, we started hearing about consumers who were purchasing Livin’ Lite vehicles who actually carried this publication into the dealership with them,” noted Scott Tuttle, president of the all-aluminum towable builder.

“We consider it an honor to be rated No. 1 by JR Consumer Resources in the premium ultra-lightweight trailer rankings.”

According to the JR Consumer Resources website, rankings are based on customer satisfaction, interviews with existing RV owners, and monitoring RV discussion forums.
