Caravan Finance

A caravan loan can help with purchasing a new or used motorhome or caravan. It works in a similar manner to a personal loan, with repayments made to the lender each month.

A caravan loan can help you purchase a new way to enjoy your travel lifestyle. Though you’ll own your new motorhome outright, you should be certain you could afford monthly repayments to the lender for the amount you want to borrow. Find out more below.

What is a caravan loan?

Caravan finance is a type of personal loan that raises money to buy a caravan or motorhome, either new or used. Although it means you can fund a new vehicle as soon as the loan is approved, you should be certain you could afford monthly repayments before making an application. You’ll own your caravan or motorhome outright, but you will have to pay back the loan monthly.

How do caravan loans work?

Caravan loans are like regular personal loans in that you agree to borrow a lump sum from a lender, which you then pay back over time. You’ll usually make monthly repayments. The total amount depends on how much you borrow and how much you can afford to pay back each month.

There are two ways you can arrange a caravan loan:

Once you find a suitable loan, apply, and are accepted, you’ll receive the money to shop for your vehicle. You’ll then repay the borrowed amount in regular instalments over an agreed timeframe.

New vs used caravan

Although you’ll have the choice between buying a new or used caravan, how much you borrow may determine what you can afford. Find a vehicle that suits your needs and is in good working order before applying for a loan. See the Caravan Club’s checklist for buying a second-hand caravan. Have an idea of your budget before applying and always be certain that you have the finances to cover the monthly payment plan.

You should do plenty of research on any caravan or motorhome you may want to purchase. It’s best to go and view the vehicle before making any financial agreements with the seller if you can. This way, you can be certain the vehicle has no major defects, and be aware of any work or repairs that may need doing.

Which caravan dealer?

If you are approved for caravan finance, you can use the funds to purchase any caravan within your budget from your dealer of choice. This includes:

While you’re free to purchase from any dealer, some lenders may have certain criteria for approving your caravan purchase. These criteria might consider things like the age, condition, and mileage of the caravan.

Some dealers may also ask for a holding fee (which should be refundable) or a deposit, usually taken off the total purchase price, to take the caravan off sale. So, it’s always good to check the terms and conditions of the sale before handing over any cash.

Applying for a caravan loan

Applying for a caravan loan is the same as applying for any personal loan. You’ll need to complete an application with some personal details and, if asked, how you’re planning to use the money.

We’ll consider the information you provide and let you know if you’re likely to be approved or not. If everything goes well, the money will be transferred into your bank account to cover the cost of your new wheels.
