10+ year loans on an RV = Ridculous.

So many people out there get sucked in by the 100 bucks a month but can't figure out why they are upside down the entire life of the RV until they pay it off. Only most never make it that far.

Not saying I don't agree with what you are saying Mike, just that the loan structure in the industry is not helping.

I'm NOT saying anything. I copied what I posted above from another site, for informational purposes..

My philosophy is, I NEVER finance anything having to do with Recreation. I believe in financing something that is NEEDED, not WANTED. Finance a House? Yes, I can see that. Finance an automobile? yes. Finance a Boat, ATV, RV, play-toy, etc...? NOPE.

I edited my post to reflect the copy & paste.

I was only adding back up to my thoughts as to the most likely reasons RV sales have grown. I truly believe it's the availability of funds.
