Tom
I sold my last bus by holding the note. It was a good deal for both of us. You may find someone who would like a steady payment for 5 or so years. In my case I sold a Prevost for 125k took a 25k down payment and the ballance over 5 yrs. In fact the new owner called me last month to tell me hes down to 3 payments. Just a thought Good luck

HI Tom,

Welcome on board this is a great site for info on BB and lot of other info. Send photos once you get the financing in place and the new coach bought.

Dan,
Thanks for your post. I have been doing business with USAA for over thirty years and didn't realize that they now write RV loans. I called them today and got approval to refinance my coach in less than a day. Rate was over 1% less than BoA. Not a huge savings but it adds up when there are no closing costs. I highly recommend them.

My pleasure. USAA has treated me right on 2 coaches in a row, and banking/insurance as well.

I agree wholeheartedly. USAA has done right by me for insurance and banking for almost 30 years. (I know this is off topic, but I gotta give this excellent company credit where I can.)

I also financed two birds with USAA, but they said they were not insuring them anymore.
They recommended Progressive, which turned out to be less expensive than USAA was, with the same coverage.

I just added my new 1987 FC35 to my existing USAA policy without a qualm. The agent didn't balk or ahem or anything. I was expecting to have to remind her what a good customer I am and yadda yadda, but she took the info and wrote the policy as if they do it everyday.

She did say that there is a different program for fulltimers. Maybe that is where you and I got different responses ???

(FWIW, six months of liability and comprehensive coverage with a $1000 deductible cost $307.89, which is shockingly reasonable in my estimation.)

I bet they(USAA) changed their policy(back to insuring RV's) after people started moving all their insurance.
Plus, that is a very reasonable price.

USAA is not doing RV insurance under the USAA nameplate. However, they are acting as the agent for Progressive as USAA General. The advantage to us the USAA members is that USAA will act on our behalf if we have problems with Progressive.

USAA writes many insurance policies directly, but not on RVs. I just did a quote with them, and will likely switch to them. I am a fulltimer, they are competive with Poliseek (used to be AON) who were the agent for my current National Interstate coverage. Several fulltimers on Escapees forums had bad experiences with Poliseek/National over the last year - so I want a agent who will actually assist if I ever file a claim.

The USAA General agent/Progressive insurance can cover full timers and also part timers.

https://www.usaa.com/inet/ent_utils/...nce_motor_home

"Insurers with (USAA) General Agency are carefully evaluated to meet the USAA level of service and must continually meet our standards."

My car insurance, banking, Bird loan, and more are already with USAA.

"RISE OLD POST - RISE"
I just wanted to add that since 2010 it appears that USAA has changed policy. I'm a 29 year customer with them and they just pulled the rug out from under me after approving up to $58,280 and an offer to approve more with an appraisal.

So I got a certified appraisal for $67,500 and then USAA refuses to accept it or honor the previous offer of $58,280 and goes to NADA of $37,500. So back to digging trenches to save some more cash to cover the gap. At least loan payments will be really low.

If anyone has any sage advice, I'm open to suggestions.
