Whether it is homes, boats, cars or RV's, if I do not have the cash I will not purchase it.

This is what's wrong with these surveys. Somebody always has something to say about someone else.

I'll just keep my opinion to myself.

Paid cash. I don't have a problem with financing just choose not to. I tend to save up to buy my toys, cars, etc. Best way I know not to overspend.

Paid half down and financed the other half for 15 year. Payments are less than a tank full of fuel, and interest deductible.

Yea, you know what an infraction is??? I'm still trying to figure out what it is. If it's a different opinion from the MODS you get one.

Agreed, it's a hard choice to make. 5% interest on a loan vs losing interest taking money out to pay cash. I sold stock to buy mine. In today's economy it can be a coin toss.

I'm just not a big fan of debt.

We were going to pay cash anyway,but Dad passed away, my share of estate was 50k. I bought my unit for just under that. Yes paid cash, going full-time next year and did not want to owe anything. Even when I made good $ over 150k per year, I wouldn't felt comfortable financing it.

Financed for 7 years, will be my fulltime home after I retire. I have part of my retirement coming in now and am still working, so the payments are doubled up, should be paids off in a little over 3 years from time of purchase. So by the time I finally get retired, it will be paid off.
