Question How to find financing????

Our daughter and son-in-law are in the process of selling their cute little Fun Finder-X and are starting to look at used class C's. They really don't want to spend more than $12,000 or $14,000 and would need to finance it, but the motorhomes in that price range are about 15 to 18 years old. Where would they go about finding financing for a motorhome that old??? Is it possible? I called our local bank and they won't finance anything more than 5 years old.

Call a broker. He/she will have a number of sources and usually can find the best deal available. If you are buying from a dealership the business manager will do this for you.

Usually they will do a personal loan which is not totally secured by the motorhome. It is hard to finance one that old

The cheapest way to borrow money (in Canada anyways) is with a home equity line of credit. Interest is prime plus 1....so for us right now it is 3.25%. You can pay as much (or little...not recommended though, LOL) as you want whenever you want.

Most dealers will have sources that are RV specialty lenders. They may very well be able to find better terms than you can through a bank or local credit union that will view an RV as a vehicle rather than as an RV. We found our lender through the dealer in 2003, and got a pretty good rate.
