Motorhome & RV

Financing FAQ

Q. Are there “tax benefits” when financing a Motorhome/RV?
Yes, the interest you pay on a Motorhome/RV loan is often deductible as a 2nd home mortgage.

Q. If I pay off my RV loan early will have to pay a penalty?
No. The lenders we work with does not enforce a “pre-payment” penalty on early payments and early payoffs of RV loans.

Q. How long does the credit approval process take?
Typically the approval process takes no more than 2-4 hours. However, in some cases a credit decision may take a little more time.

Q. Can Motorhome/RV loans have terms of up to 20 years?
Yes. Our lenders have financing terms of up to 20 years. The term given depends on the dollar amount needed to be financed.

There are also 12 year and 15 year terms available. Again, this would depend on the dollar amount needed to be financed.

Q. How much of a down payment is required with a Motorhome/RV loan?
