I'd do own research. Sounds to me that they WANT you to finance thru them. I'd definitely low ball, then hand them a certified check from another institution. Don't expect any after sale service though.

X2 - is there a clear title with this " illegitimate " camper? Who's the manufacture and who's the person selling it?

Might be better to run away rather than walk.

I was suggesting you use your own bank or credit union. That's what we do. Walked in with check in hand. And 2.49% Apr.

Agree. NEVER NEVER NEVER let your dealer arrange your financing.

My wife works in automotive finance (20+ years) and I asked her. She has never heard of such a thing as you cannot finance because its not in KBB or NADA.

If this is private party, run like hell and don't look back. If this is a dealer, I would contact the states attorney generals office. Most salivate at the thought of busting dealer fraud.

I've never heard of it put this way- but now that you mention it I will relay something I've run into. Our first camper was a used Tahoe by Thor. It was a 2003, model number 23FB, if I remember correctly. The model number was NOT listed in NADA. I paid cash for it, but it was ~8 years old at the time. Sounds like the same kind of deal. Maybe a prototype model they decided not to produce???

I'm guessing there are lots of other campers out there that you want or need and for a price that will fit your budget. I think I'd keep looking if it were me.
