Refinanced through Costco (essex credit)

Just wanted to throw this out there. I just reified my xlr27hfs through The Costco website (must be a costco member) and got 4.39%. Dropped my payment $80/month. $168 closing cost. Good customer service as well.

I just made the first payment on the dealer provided loan, at 4.99.

4.99 is not bad, but I like 4.39 even better.

Did you apply online or did you have to call them? How long did the process take? We are taking delivery on a new TT on 3/12/13. Dealer was offering 5.22%

thank you for the great info!

We applied tonight--online. Says it takes about 48 hours. Keeping our payment the same but cutting down on the term of the loan. Tried to give our current lending company a chance to meet and hopefully beat the Essex offer--they couldn't even come close.

We are going to buy a new trailer in NW Ohio . I called this credit union in Elkhart and inquired if they could finance it . We live in Tn . Without even asking me anything about what we want to borrow she said she would ask her supervisor and call me back so she got my phone # . In 45 minutes she called back . She said they would not be interested in financing an out of state loan . I told her we previously had financed a 5th wheel thru a Credit Union in Arizona (did it all on the phone and fax ) even though at the time we lived in Michigan . I told her we would only be 1 hour away when we went to pick up the trailer and if they could pre approve the loan with paper work and fax and phone we could drive to Elkhart before we picked up the trailer in Ohio if that helped. She said they were not doing any out of state business . In today's world this is hard to believe ! We could finance thru MANY places on the phone out of state . Bank of the West for one. Maybe I got a girl on the phone who didn't know any better ? I only called because that's a very low interest rate . If I was local I would be all over that deal !! Jim

farmerjim, my credit union is the same way. they like to be close to ur home in case they need to repossess. it cost more to repossess the farther away it is.

when i bought, the dealer beat my cretit union. a couple years later, i was able to refinance at a lower rate. tried to negotiate with the bank for a lower rate rather than switching. they weren't interested so i refinanced with another co. i wondering if they just don't want to modify the original deal or hope u will stay with their higher rate.
my credit union does not charge a fee to loan money but it was still cheaper to pay the fee and get a lower rate.

Do you have to be a Costco member? We don't have any stores around here but the refi seems like a good deal.
