July 8, 2020

The road may be calling, but travelers need to figure out how to finance that recreational vehicle

Foster City, CA – July 8, 2020 – For many, it’s a dream to hit the highways in a recreational vehicle (RV) or camper, visiting friends and relatives and “living wherever your spirit takes you.” For that dream to morph into a reality, future road travelers must determine how to finance the recreational vehicle of choice, and revs up to help consumers do that.
Many who have their sails set for a new RV have never purchased one before. An RV can range from a simple “ice-fishing house” priced between $3,000 and $20,000 to a fancy, conventional motorhome worth up to $500,000. The trusted personal finance resource recently released a guide that helps consumers navigate the process of paying for an RV or camper. 
MoneyRates reminds RV shoppers that being careful about financing options can save a lot of money in the long run, and explores factors including: 

  • What is an RV loan? The type of shelter chosen factors into the type of loan that is best.
  • RV loan types: Auto loans to specialty RV lender financing can be a fit.
  • Interest loan rates for RV financing: Rates are heavily influenced by credit rating, RV age, loan amount, down payment and loan term.
  • How much is affordable?  Most lenders don't want to see a DTI over 40%, although some personal loan providers and subprime RV lenders go as high as 50%. It’s a good idea to use a loan calculator to get an idea of what the monthly payment will likely be.
  • Finding the best RV loan: There are several principles to keep in mind when searching.
  • Personal loans for RV purchases: What are the pros and cons?
  • How to finance an RV: Crucial first steps are explained.
