Travel Trailer financing???

Im looking to get a car hauler with living quarters up front, with water tanks etc. basically like a toy hauler type setup.
anyhow, on one ad i saw they mentioned something along the lines that the trailer would pretty much qualify for a mortgage since you could live in it.

is there any truth to this? im looking in the $20,000 range and under, but if i could get a low interest note that was like 10yrs so my payments would be CHEAP that would be GREAT!

im also looking used, if that'd be a factor.

what do ya'll know??

that is correct you can finance a travel trailer for up to 180 months i believe... i just bought a 30k rockwood wind jammer a couple weeks ago and financed it for 180 months at 6% with no problem.

You can indeed write it off as a second home, but I don't think most lenders will give you a "mortgage rate" on an RV note. I have a great banker that allows me to do all my crazy stuff and he got me 6% for 10 years on the new 5er I just bought.

If you are a credit union member check their rates and if you are not a member find one you are eligible to join, the rates are much better than a bank.

This is a very true statement. I work for the NCUA examining credit unions and I'm always amazed at how low their rates are. I would belong to our local credit union but then I wouldn't be able to examine them, giving me one less local job.

I got mine from American Bank or Bank of the West I think. I had secured incredible rates, but RV dealer beat it by .5 .
