Lippert Components and Let’s Go Aero expand partnership
Elkhart, Ind. — Lippert Components, Inc.

The expanded partnership between the two companies allows LCI to sell, market and distribute the full line of Let’s Go Aero’s RV gear, transport products and related patented technology.
LCI and Let’s Go Aero (LGA) began exploring ways to bring LGA’s GearCage® cargo and VRack™ bicycle carrier technologies into LCI’s OEM and aftermarket divisions. With added focus to OEM integration, a second generation Tailgate Storage System (TSS) based on LGA’s GearCage technology is underway, and is presently in its final stage for release this year.
