Going interest rates?

Looking at new motor coach. FICO is around 830. What kind of rate should I be getting on 20 year loan? Anyone with current experience care to comment? Looking to borrow about $500K.

Well, we're GETTING 5% on our $500,000 annuity. But I suspect you'll be paying 3 to 4% to borrow as your credit rating is about what ours is too.

If you own and can claim a conventional home as your primary residence you should be paying something below 4%. If full time add a point to that, assuming you have assets or income enough to support the loan.

Be forewarned, unless you're getting the loan from a bank or banker with whom you have a long history, "personal banking" is a thing of the past. In other words, YOU don't come into the picture, it's all about the numbers. A computer program makes the ultimate decision, the eyes and brain reading the computer screen have no authority to deviate. As example, I applied at two banks. One bank said my "income was insufficient" (based on the tax returns they needed to consider the loan). Charts and formulas commonly referred to when determining a "safe" retirement income, based on your IRA (I had sent them a screen print of our account balances) or other assets, show we're taking approximately 1/3 of what we could. I told the bank taking only what we need. Might as well been talking to a wall.

I used Good sam as a bargaining rate...

and all of a sudden the finance company could beat their 3.99 %

Can you join a credit union ?

USAA.com, if you're eligible to use it. I'm pretty sure they have 3.75 or 4.00%

Going interest rates?

I'm 24 when I bought my New TT I got denied I have great credit (765) and they said it's not established enough that an rv is luxury item and that they are more difficult to repo. I said sir if anything happen and they came for it ud never find it anyways. lol horrible sales manager I walked and found another TT I knew what I wanted to pay for it. I got my own loan no problem though a credit union (10 years at 3.75 percent) I went back to the dealer put the check on the counter and we made a deal. One off the smoothest transactions I've ever made.. That was 2 years ago and my TT has never been back to the dealer.. Other then small little issues I took care of

The finance company actually called us and asked us what rates we wanted. We told him 3.9, and after shopping around we found this was about average with good credit.
