Why Finance your RV Purchase?

Because it can help you maintain financial flexibility. Your RV may even qualify for some of the same benefits on your taxes as a second mortgage. The RV must be used as security for the loan and must have sleeping, cooking and bathroom facilities. If you are interested in this tax benefit, please check with your own tax advisor for specifics on whether this will apply for you. Even if you think that you are a cash buyer, be sure to consider the lost earning power of the cash that you will spend. You may earn more than the RV financing would cost.
