Like a few of you seniors, I'm thinking of financing a motorhome. I'll be 73 on my next birthday and plan on RVing for a few more years. My plan is to pay 25-50% down and finance the rest. Unfortunately, I'm finding that most lenders are not interested in financing used RV's that are more than 7 years old. While I could easily qualify for a newer entry level diesel, my preference is for a high end coach that's 10 or more model years old. The ones I like are selling for $60-90,000 and up. But even with a large down payment, I'm concerned that I won't be able to finance the balance. From what I read, lenders are looking for larger, long term loans. I'd be looking for a smaller short term loan. I have good credit, no debt and a decent pension. It's hard to imagine lenders not lining up for my business. Except for my age, I'm sure I could qualify for a loan on a $200,000 motorhome. However doing so would place my DW at risk. I've come across too many widows trying to unload a motorhome that was financed and is significantly under water. I would not want to put my wife in that situation. So if I can't come up with financing, I'll be lowering my sights to a late 1990s 1 slide diesel with a bunch of miles. I've seriously thought of that since I really like the older luxury coaches. However I'm a retired pencil pusher and don't like the prospect of ongoing mechanical problems. I would appreciate any info on lenders that I might approach.
