How Can I Improve My Chances of Getting Approved for an RV Loan?
Getting the financing you need for your RV with a poor credit history can be difficult but there are strategies you can use to help improve your chances of getting approved. Here are a few of the most effective things you can do:
- Put Money Down: If you are able to provide a down payment of more than 20 percent, the likelihood of securing the rest of the financing that you need will increase.
- Secure the Best Price: Shop until you find the right price: make sure after your down payment to request a loan of no more than the wholesale or used sale price that the RV is projected to be.
- Report Increases in Income: Though you may have hurt your credit score in the past, strong income in the present may make up for it. Also, if someone else in your household has recently started receiving an income, this can make you a better prospect to a lender.
- Pay Off Debt: One factor that credit reporting agencies examine is your debt-to-equity ratio—with good reason: people are less likely to pay back new loans if their existing loans are already above a certain level compared to their assets and income. Therefore, consider paying off at least one of your existing loans and showing a plan to pay off more in the future. Though this may delay your RV purchase, it can improve your overall financial strength.
- Check for Errors: In some cases, errors in your credit report may be the culprit, so request and check your report and inform the agency of any errors you find.
Though it will take time for your credit rating to change, a lender may look more favorably on your loan application because of your commitment to financial improvement.
