Financing Parkliner out of state

Hello

Do any of you have any good leads on Travel Trailer Financing? I'm from CA and want to purchase a new Parkliner out of state NC and most of my local credit unions/Banks will not finance out of state sales of a travel trailer. Preferably one that will put deposit and understand the special order process that may take a few months to build.

Thank you

A personal line of credit or home equity loan would be easiest. Most banks are not familiar with purchases like this( trailers, boats etc. ) and can be difficult to work with. The staff at Parkliner may have a plan for financing. One of the disadvantages of purchasing a unit from a small manufacturer. Try buying a used fiberglass trailer of any brand and you'll find the same situation.

I used my line of credit to buy both the trailer and the tug.
Car salesman suggested that I call the bank to tell them a large cheque was being written. Person at the bank asked why I was calling them. They didn't care what I spend the money on, just that I pay them back.

I say to keep looking for a better credit union. Mine (in NY) financed a trailer purchased in Chilliwack, BC. While mine was new, they had no problem (at a slightly higher interest rate) with a used one.

Obtaining a Bank Loan to purchase a Parkliner

I've been told most lending institutions will not make a secured loan on an RV that is not RVIA certified. As I understand it, Parkliner, among others, is not.

If you rent a truck, will it have a brake controller.

I considered flying to Washington State and renting a truck to bring our Escape back. But they add about $1200 to your rental if you are picking it up in Washington and dropping it off in Tennessee. So by the time I pay for airfare, hotel, rental, gas, etc, I'm really not saving anything. Plus you add in the cost of a weeks vacation.

Pete, we are still reviewing all of our options. Escape will deliver it to Goshen Indiana (8 hours from here) for a flat $4000 CDN (about $2800 US with current conversion). They will deliver it to my home for $2 CDN per mile (around $3800 US currently). So when my build date gets closer, I will check out Uship and some other transport companies and see if they can do it cheaper. Right now I am thinking delivery to Goshen, but we shall see

Pete, Have you checked into commercial auto transport companies? We once purchased a car from a family member in Phoenix, Arizona, and had a commercial auto transport company ship it to Alabama for right at $700.00. It was one of three vehicles and a boat on their stretch-bed trailer, all being moved from locations in the Southwest to locations in the Southeast (so I'm guessing they could have been making around $2,800 total for the trip). The only catch was, we had to meet them at an interstate exit to take possession of the car because this particular company wouldn't venture off of the interstate road system. Luckily, we live only about 10 miles off I-85 in Alabama, so it was practically delivered to our front door - relatively speaking. We were very pleased. Also, I've heard of people contracting with long-haul interstate trucking companies to haul all kinds of things as relatively cheap "back-hauls" so long as it will fit in or on their trailer and you can find a loading dock to load it onto or into their trailer and then another loading dock on your end to unload it. We have a couple of nearby farm equipment dealerships with outside earthen loading docks for their delivery trucks that they let people in the local community use for things like this. Both options are worth checking into if you haven't already. Dale
