RV Extended Service Contracts, often coined RV warranties, are wholly separate from your RV insurance plan. Insurance covers damages incurred by weather, collisions, or liabilities from accidents, whereas warranties cover the mechanical and electrical components in your rig.
The main purpose of purchasing an RV extended service contract is to protect your budget from the high-cost of mechanical breakdowns.

The Pros and Cons of Rent to Own Campers
The tiny home movement has brought with it many new styles of living; off-grid homes, micro houses, and in many cases, homes on wheels. Full-time living in an RV isn’t a new concept, but it’s one that’s been gaining a lot of traction lately. People are drawn to RV living because it allows you to travel and lead a fulfilled life without having to pay for a home or apartment at the same time. That being said, the start-up cost of buying an RV can be gargantuan. In many cases, RVs can cost just as much as a house! However, there’s another option for people who want to own a camper without the upfront costs: rent to own camper trailers.
The Cost of Ownership
Buying an RV is no easy feat. You’ll need to do hours of research just to find the RV that’s right for your needs! On top of that, there’s the process of finding financing, saving a down payment, and much more. There are a few things to consider before buying an RV:
Think about whether you want a newer or older RV. Newer RVs will have fewer problems and will come with a warranty. However, it’s going to cost you big bucks. On the other hand, an older RV will be less expensive, but you may need to budget more in maintenance costs.
Finding financing can be a real pain. Newer RVs are easier to finance. Many banks won’t finance RVs that are older than 15 years, so that’s something to keep in mind. Either way, you’ll need good credit to get traditional financing, just like you would with a house.
You’ll need a sizeable down payment to finance an RV. You probably want to put $5,000 at the very least. If you don’t have a lot for a down payment, look for longer financing terms to offset the monthly cost.
You’ll also need to get the right type of insurance for your camper. If you’re only going to be using it on weekends and for short vacations, you can get insurance through your auto insurance provider. If you plan on living in the camper, you’ll want full-timer insurance, which is a combination of homeowners and auto.
If you aren’t going to live in your camper, you’ll need to make storage arrangements. This is another significant expense. Winterizing and storing an RV can cost as much as $400 per month!

Renting a Camper
Obviously, if your budget is tight and you don’t plan on living in your camper, renting one is the way to go. Peer to peer RV networks like ours offer some of the best rental rates on the market. Here are some benefits to renting a camper through RVshare:
You can find campers of all shapes and sizes, which is great if you want something older and more affordable.
You’ll work with the owner directly and can message them through our online platform. You can negotiate rates, terms, and even ask if the owner has rent to own trailers.
If you’re renting, you don’t have to worry about storage costs and maintenance.
Renting a camper is a great idea if you’re thinking about buying one or have never been RVing before. You’ll be able to test out the different styles you like and see whether living in a camper is right for you – all before you make the commitment!

Benefits of Renting to Own
A quick search of “rent to own campers near me” will pull up thousands of hits on Google. There are plenty of RV owners and dealers who are willing to work with people who want to eventually own their campers. Renting to own is the best of both worlds:
They’re often financed by the dealership or owner directly. That means you don’t have to deal with financing through a bank. It’s a good way to get an older RV, which banks won’t usually finance.
You won’t need to put down as much of a down payment. In some cases, you may not need one at all.
Renting to own is a good option if your credit is less than desirable. Traditional banks treat RV ownership as a luxury, so their credit requirements are usually pretty tight. However, keep an eye out for rent to own campers no credit check scams. While there are legitimate deals, some of these scams have interest rates through the roof.
You may be able to negotiate the terms with the owner or dealer. Many times, rent to own campers are listed as such because the seller is motivated, or the dealership needs to move inventory. Use that to your advantage.
Should you Rent or Own a Camper?
Of course, the decision of whether it’s better to rent or own a camper depends on how you plan on using it, in addition to the state of your personal finances. If you’re only going to use your RV for weekend trips and short vacations, you may want to consider renting on an as-needed basis. Otherwise, you’ll have to budget all the other expenses that come with RV ownership, like storage and insurance.
Buying an RV to live in, on the other hand, is another story. The costs of renting an RV for months at a time can get expensive. If you’ll be spending lots of time in your camper, you should probably buy one. Thankfully, if you’re dead-set on buying a camper but don’t have the up-front costs or credit, renting to own is a viable option. It’s not hard to find a camper for rent to own, and the benefits are abundant. You’ll enjoy the perks of ownership without the limitations of financing a new (i.e. expensive) RV. It’s an affordable option, whether you want to live in your camper or not.
While RVshare does not offer a rent to own option, we wanted to make sure you know every possibility that is available to you. Rent to own campers give people the opportunity to own an RV when they may not have otherwise been able to. If you’re interested in renting to own, check with your local dealerships to see what’s available. Just remember to read the terms carefully and watch out for high interest rates and “bad credit” scams. Good luck!

Bad credit can be an obstacle to getting the things you want in life, but not necessarily an insurmountable one. For example, if you have always wanted a recreational vehicle (RV), you know that it is the type of big-ticket item that can be hard to secure financing for if you have bad credit. This guide to bad credit RV loans will give you some tips on improving your chances of getting financing, as well as making sure this is the best long-term decision to you.
Bad Credit RV Loans: Improving Your Chances
Have no illusions about this – having bad credit will make it tougher to get an RV loan. However, there are a variety of steps you can take to improve your chances:
Make progress in your credit history. Identify the reasons your credit is bad, and start addressing those problems. This can entail catching up with overdue bills, paying down credit balances, or correcting errors in your record. Even if these steps don’t immediately restore your credit rating to the low-risk range, being able to show a lender progress will demonstrate a change in the right direction.
Show improved earnings power. Your credit rating is based on the past, but a significant raise in pay could make a meaningful difference in how risky lenders consider you to be. If your household has recently added an income, this might be another way of making lenders more confident in your ability to repay an RV loan.
Demonstrate a reduction in other payments. Income is one thing, but your ability to repay a loan also depends on how many other financial obligations you have. If this burden has recently become easier, for example if you have recently retired an old debt, it should improve the way that lenders view you.
Build up a strong down payment. In general, the higher the down payment, the more forgiving lenders tend to be about credit standing. So, if you want to overcome credit problems, building a down payment of 20 percent or greater should improve your chances.
Know the value of what you are buying. The RV you choose would be the collateral for the loan, so a bad deal for you would also be a bad deal for a lender. Make sure you know the market well enough to spot a good deal, because this will increase your chances of finding a lender who feels the collateral is sufficient for the loan.
Take advantage of the dealer’s financing relationships. If you are buying from a dealer, use the fact that the dealer is motivated to complete a sale. Some dealers offer their own financing, while others have relationships that might get you a more welcome reception from a lender.
Shop around for financing. Even if a dealer can finance a loan or introduce you to a lender, don’t settle for loan terms until you’ve done some shopping around on your own. It’s not just interest rates that vary from one lender to another – their tolerance for weaker credit also varies, so shopping around can help you find a lender willing to offer reasonable terms to someone with less-than-perfect credit.
Making the Right Choice
Getting approved for bad credit RV loans is part of the challenge, but what may be even more important in these situations is making sure the purchase is the right choice for you. Going through the following steps will help you determine whether or not you are fully comfortable with this commitment:
Recognize the cost of bad credit. It’s almost certain that your bad credit rating is going to require you to pay a higher interest rate. Run a couple amortization schedules comparing the total interest costs of the loan terms you’ve been offered with what those terms would be if you had good credit. This will show you what the cost of your bad credit will be over the life of the loan. You can decide whether it might be worthwhile waiting until you can repair your credit before you make this purchase.
Make a budget you can live with. Look at the monthly payment you have taken on, and figure out in detail whether it is something your budget can live with. Remember, this purchase is supposed to bring you joy, not cause you stress. LendingTree’s RV loan calculator can help you estimate loan payment amounts.
Be sure of your commitment to this vehicle. An expensive vehicle like a RV can depreciate in value by a great amount after you buy it, so if you have to re-sell it, you could take quite a loss. The point is, make sure that this is something you are sure you are buying for the long-term. If you’ve never been behind the wheel of an RV before, consider renting one before buying to make sure you know the ins and outs of operating one.
The most important part of pursuing your dreams is making sure you are clear on what those dreams are. If you have thought through the nature of this choice and the financial consequences, the above tips could help you pursue the dream of owning an RV.
OK your ready to get an RV loan to buy your dream RV, but you have questions. Where do I go to get a loan? Should I do something prior to getting a loan?. How do I get a good interest rate? Will I be able to afford the monthly payments? What if I get turned down? Oh Great, now I am dazed and really confused and my head is spinning and I feel ill.
Calm Down and take a breath, I am going to help you. Getting an RV Loan isn't Rocket Science (actually Rocket Science is easier than getting an RV loan, JUST KIDDING).
How do I get a good interest rate?
The first thing you need to understand is that just like any loan your interest rate is based on your Credit Score. Do you even know what your Credit Score is? This is an important topic, so we have dedicated a whole page to it.
Once you've completed the section on credit reports you should review the two additional steps to getting a loan for an RV. These steps will answer all of your other questions about getting a loan for an RV.
Step 1: What to do before financing an RV. Actually these are items that you should ponder, before actually seeking a loan. These are monthly costs for owning an RV and should be reviewed before deciding what monthly loan payment amount you can afford.
Some of these items may not have even crossed your mind, that is why I am here to bring them to your attention (because that's what I do).
Step 2: Is a primer (tells you how to do things) on getting the best loan you can on your RV purchase. How diligent you are at completing step 1 will determine, how well step 2 will turn out (that's a hint, if you skipped step 1, you might want to go back and take a look at it). I will give you a few tips on shopping for a loan (and this is definitely not like buying eggs at a supermarket with a coupon).
I know how excited you are about getting an RV. We were too, when we got our first RV and our second RV and our third RV etc. By providing these steps, I hope that I have helped answer some of your questions about RV Loans.
Once you have purchased your RV, you will have a chance to experience the RVing Lifestyle, and I know just like us, you will loveit. The memories you create by RVing will last you a lifetime making the steps you had to take to get your RV worth the effort.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy RVing.

Recreational Vehicle Financing Rates and News
If you have been searching for RV loan rates in 2018, you may have noticed the recent wave of RV rate increases. While the hikes of 2017 were only .25% to .37% on average, they have increased by .50%, (from their lowest point), or more so far this year. This makes it different from other upturns we have seen over the last several years, that quickly reverted back to the previous levels. This "sticky" spike leads us to conclude that rates had likely hit rock bottom in December of 2016, or very early in 2017.
All the RV news isn't that bad; after a number of years of declining RV sales, financing and other RV related services, many economic indicators have been heading in the right direction for the industry. Most of the dealers surveyed expected an increase of 12% to 17% in orders of new units from RV manufacturers; reaching for greater sales levels than the last several years of higher than anticipated totals.

Lower Interest Rates May Have Bottomed Out
Much of the new business may be coming from buyers who have been "on the fence" in deciding when to purchase. With rates currently on the rise, this trend should continue. The "Fed" will have to start raising rates sometime fairly soon, and the smoke signals we're seeing now could be read like a neon sign later in the year.
The improved economy and growing consumer confidence should continue to stimulate more sales of motorhomes and other types of recreational vehicles. RVs are even becoming "Cool" with the emerging baby boomer market.
The RV financial service providers indicated that interest rates for RV loans had hit bottom late last year, and we were in a rising interest rate economy. Our own research shows that rates had continued to hold at record low rates for most of last year, with some minor, short-lived spikes in recent months. (These increases have been confirmed as of 2017 with a quarter to half-point increases holding after the first couple months of the year.)

We can also finance older used RVs and motorhomes, (from 10 - 12 years old), so you can easily find seven to ten-year-old luxury motorhomes from $60,000 to $80,000, or even less. So if you've been thinking of taking the plunge, come on in - the water (and rates) may be rising soon.
The banks, as well as online RV loan brokers, felt the trend could very easily reverse course if the economy began to sputter - or even if things began to heat up and jump-start a new ripple of competition between RV lenders. (That seems less of a chance now, as there are so few national RV lenders even in the market.)
The head of RVIA, the Recreational Vehicle Industry Association said that he expects shipments of new RVs to continue to increase this year. We agree that this will be another year with increases of 5% to 6% higher than last year. RV manufacturing, much of which is located in Indiana, is an $11 billion dollar industry, now employs close to 300,000 people, with mergers of existing manufacturers and new brands emerging at an increasing rate.
And Now, a Word from the Government
Although current economic conditions have improved, uncertainty in government policies may still dampen spirits if political leaders continue to keep their focus on their own interests above those of the American people. (Or vise versa, depending on your own opinion and current developments. This seems to be a common topic in recent events; and in the opinion of many people surveyed at recent shows, the industry news and media, and RV events across the country.)
At some point the Fed will have to begin to increase interest rates - however, with inflation remaining stable, that may not be enough to derail the recreational industry's current "freight train" momentum. The recent election instability has begun to confirm our theories that we are beginning to enter a rising rate environment.
But Wait - There's Still More
All government and political issues aside, the RV market is being "buoyed" by the ever-increasing demands of retiring, or "soon to retire" baby boomers. The Gen X'ers and Millennials are falling in line right behind them.
With these higher numbers of potential RV buyers entering the market, forward-thinking RV manufacturers are continuing to engineer and produce lighter and more efficient units at virtually all price levels. This is helping keep the younger, entry-level buyers engaged with more economical and easier to purchase RVs at most all levels.
These gains in innovation are also keeping older, or should I say "Seasoned" RV'ers in the game by helping reduce operating costs, making more maneuverable units - and even lightening up the Big Boys. What are ya gonna do, but keep on rolling!
Continued gains in the job market, and higher household incomes and the current record-low interest rates, would seemingly project an extremely favorable outlook for the recreational industry in the foreseeable future.
Regardless of the outcome, the near-term months and approaching years are widely projected to be the best time to purchase and/or finance an RV. If you are in the market but may have been waiting for the rock bottom. That time could very well be now. Stay tuned for updates, or just get it out of the way while the getting is good.
