RV Loans FAQs

Do you work with dealers/brokers?

Yes, we work with dealers/brokers across the U.S.

Do you offer pre-approvals?

No. We do not offer a pre-approval, because our loan decisions consider not just the applicant(s) but the collateral as well. You may apply using the vessel you are currently interested in and should you find a different boat, the collateral can be changed. The updated collateral must remain within approval guidelines. Please note that rates and terms may change based on your final loan amount.

How long will it take to receive a credit decision?

A credit review on an application is generally completed within 1-2 business days.

Do you charge closings costs or other fees?

Yes, a loan fee may apply. Talk to your Branch Banker or call 1-866-269-2327 for further information.

Can I finance any taxes, title, registration and/or loan processing fees?

Yes, taxes, title, registration and/or loan processing fees may be included in your loan amount subject to the loan amount meeting our LTV (loan-to-value) guidelines. You may also choose to pay for them out of pocket; in which case, payment must be received prior to funding your loan.

If I am approved, how long will it take to fund my loan?

For a refinance, you can expect your loan to fund in 5-7 business days after loan approval. For a purchase, you can expect your loan to fund in 7-10 business days after loan approval. If a survey is required, you should anticipate 14 business days after loan approval.

Is there a pre-payment penalty on loans?

There is no pre-payment penalty.

If I own my RV, can I borrow against it?

Yes, our Cash Recapture Program allows you to get a loan within 6 months of your original purchase. All terms and conditions must meet purchase program guidelines. An Original Purchase Agreement or Bill of Sale must be provided.

Who will be handling the titling and registration of my RV?

In most cases, our internal Lien Department handles the titling and registration of your RV. In some states, it is necessary for us to use an independent 3rd party vendor to complete the titling and registration.
