Default Where to find financing for older BlueBird?

Hello All,
It seems to me that every place I turn they will only finance a coach that's 10 years old or less. But I'm looking a late 80's early 90's Bird. Can anyone offer any advice on finding a company to finance an older coach? Thanks - Tom

Try your credit union. Ours financed our 85 FC35 last year. They were willing to lend up to 80% of low book value with a stipulation that the RV has less than 100K miles. There was no documentation required regarding the mileage, just a verbal statement.

I'm with Boeing Employees Credit Union.

Good luck, the effort you go through to get a Bluebird will be worth the effort!

Hey there,
Welcome to the site! Someone will soon remind you to form a signature as well as give you instructions to do so!
I financed mine through my credit union. They did not give me the best of rates due to its age, however. I am very interested in this thread, because I would love to refinance! Unfortunately, refinancing seems to always be harder than financing a purchase!

Based on your user ID - USAA is your answer.
https://www.usaa.com/inet/ent_utils/...k_loan_rv_main
Anyone with any active duty or guard/reserve time can join USAA. I financed a 83 FC35 with them in 2000, and a 94 BMC in 2002 (had both loans active at once for a couple months until the 83 sold). I refinanced the 94 in 2009 when I retired and started fulltiming (paid down the principle and extended the payment time for lower monthly bills).

Do research on NADA book ahead of time as that is what USAA uses - USAA will let you add any and every "option" to the book value even if it was from the factory built that way. PM if you need more info, but I may not answer back immediately (I may be out of pocket for a couple of days due to family health issues).

Tom,

Check on base at SAC Federal Credit Union and see what they have to say about financing your 'Bird and as you have already been warned, here I am with the signature request;

Please add your permanent signature.

You need to add a permanent signature to your user profile, so that it will automatically be added at the end of all of your posts, this way we will know who we are replying to and what year and model of 'Bird or RV that you own, or if you are a Wannabe 'Bird owner, that way you help us, so that we can better help you.

This was one of the things that you were asked to do in the Wanderlodge Owners Group Rules and that you agreed to, when you became a member of this forum;



To find out how to add a permanent signature to your profile please read;

How To Post A New Topic Message Or A Reply To A Topic and Add Your Signature

Why do we want you to have a signature; Wanderlodge Owners Group > Frequently Asked Questions > User Related Issues What is the signature for?

So we are asking you again to please just add a signature in your profile with the requested information;

Your Name

Year & Model of 'Bird or WANNABE

Your Location

You can set your signature by choosing User CP at the upper left side of the forums page and then choose Edits Signature from the Settings & Options, then create your signature and if you want to you can add a signature photo, then scroll to the bottom and click on Preview Signature and if you are satisfied with the results, then scroll back down to the bottom and click on Save Signature.



Thanks,

O.K. good copy on signature police, and thanks all for the info. I hadn't thought about USAA at all. We used to have insurance with them years ago. Thanks again to all who replied! Yes, even the signature police LOL. - Tom
