First time buyer, is this a bad deal?

We are in process of purchasing Surveyor SV 264. The price after discount was $24k. After applying for credit we got the number back today saying it requires $4000 down with 9% interest rate. This would be our first RV so wondering if this is normal? 9% sounds awfully high for me. Our main purpose of purchasing this TT is because we just recently got a dog and we want to be able to take him to places with us. I don't know if 9% interest would be worth it.

I think you can better than that. I found that if you go to a lender that specialize in RV loans you get a better deal.

Others may have more detailed information.

Our credit app went through the broker and they match us with the bank. The broker told us he could try another bank that may allow lower down payment but interest rate would be higher. Down payment is a concern but interest rate is more of a concern to us. Since this is very brand new to me I don't know if its because we have bad credit so it results in high interest rate or this rate is within the average range? I don't want too many bank looking in our credit if we have no chance of getting the lower rate. I'm gonna throw our financial information out there so if any expert in this forum can help us determine if we should keep on shopping for a loan or just give up. Our gross household income is about $133k. We are financing a $150k house, 2012 charger, and 2013 Silverado 1500. Our credit score is 740 and 660.

Thanks in advance!

Your credit scores are fine not great but good there is no way u should pay 9% take a personal loan from a bank at 4.5-5 % before u let them rip u off like that. ( if your canadian in alberta this advice will help)

If you belong to a credit union try them (but there is a big difference between credit unions & in length of loan) .......... my guess is the interest rate should be around 5.99 or so...... The RV price should be about 2/3 +/- of the manufacturers retail...... Be sure they use the higher credit score as the primary buyer............

Good Luck..................

No expert here but I can tell you when my score was under 700 there was no way I was getting better than 10%.

Take a little equity in your home, 9% is high.

We only had to put $500 down and our interest rate is 4.75%. Not saying you have bad credit but that can make all the difference some times.
