Interest Rates

I've heard that credit unions offer lower interest rates than traditional banks. I checked with a local CU today about a rate for the new tt we have on order. I was quoted 6.45% for 60 to 120 months, 7.45% for 121 to 180 months. When I asked why so high, I was told that their aito rates are in the 2's, but RV rates are (and have always been with them) much higher than auto loan rates.

What kinds of interest rates are others seeing these days?

Last summer I got 4.5% thru Bank Of America. My credit union wasn't anywhere close.

If you can do it, try getting an equity loan on your house. Much lower rate. RV loans from a bank are always going to be high. Banks don't like loaning against RVs. They don't like the fact that an RVer could end up going full time and having "no fixed address". It's too easy for someone to drive off into the sunset never to return. Also, depreciation on RVs is high.

Not sure what rates RV dealers offer on new purchases?

My local private cu is offering 2.9 - 3.9 % but only for 72 months i believe. Still, with the interest savings, that could be a great deal if i can swing the payments. I prefer to do a traditional 10 - 15 yr RV loan and then do all i can to pay it off in 3 - 5 years

I think the rates you quoted are par for the course in my neighbourhood, but can also be somewhat dependant on credit score.

I got 4.75 from a credit union for a 12 year loan. My wife and I have excellent credit though. I am 28 and my wife 26 and our salesman gave us a pat on the back for our credit scores. Was not expecting us to have such good scores. I will give most credit to my wife. She works at a bank and is a freak about our credit. I can't complain though when I look at what we have.

Have a 2011 fifth wheel started with Bank of America at 5.75, went to a 4.99 last year at kemba credit union, and just switched to 3.99 at share fax credit union. I would call around to all credit unions I got rates from 3.99 to 6.75. Sharefax credit inion has 3.99 upto 10 years for over 10,000 with 670 beacon score. Chiphone has 2.49 but won't do out of state. I kept payment same but dropped 2 years from my original loan date.
