Unless you own a truck or RV you may not know Lippert and its family of companies. The VTV USA Tour is here to educate you, though. You’ll find their cool products on our own personal touring rig, for one thing. And we’ll be telling you more about ’em all through the rest of the season. Before that, read on to get a snapshot into Lippert’s world.

Give us a brief history of the company. How and why did it get started? What draws your business to the V-twin side of the motorcycle industry?
Ranch Hand: Fitted its first Grille Guard on the front of a truck in 1986, one of the first manufacturers to enter the truck accessory industry. Since then, business experience, knowledge and determination has expanded Ranch Hand’s presence on the road from a single rancher’s small-town Texas to tens of thousands of trucks, Jeeps, and SUV’s across the nation.
CURT: Like many American stories, CURT comes from humble beginnings. Our company started in 1993 as a trailer ball distribution business run out of the back of a car. It wasn’t long before we began our own manufacturing, expanding our product lines and bringing on more members to the CURT team. From custom fit receiver hitches to cargo, and bike carriers to an entire line of highly engineered products for the leisure and mobile transport industries, CURT continues to innovate and serve.
Sum up your company in three words.
Ranch Hand: American, Tough, Rugged
CURT: Comfort, Safety, Expert
