Shop around for an RV
The first step toward getting an RV loan is finding an RV, travel trailer or motorhome to buy. It could be new from a dealership or pre-owned from a private seller. Shopping around will help you find the best deal.

At First Citizens, the minimum credit score for an RV loan is 670. You can learn more about credit scores and how they impact lending decisions in our guide to credit scores.
Our RV loan terms vary between 60 months (5 years) and 180 months (15 years). The terms available to you will depend on the amount of your loan. The larger the loan amount, the longer the term may be. The average term for an RV loan is typically 5 to 10 years.
Yes. RV loans and auto loans are similar to one another—they're both simple interest loans that use the vehicle as collateral to secure the loan.
An RV typically costs more than a car, so it's common to see longer loan terms than the average 72-month car loan. Longer terms are riskier for lenders, which may be reflected in a higher interest rate.
Because it's a large purchase, the qualifications for RV loans are usually higher than for auto loans.
When you apply for an RV loan at First Citizens, our lending team will work with you to gather any personal information needed to process your application, such as your credit score.
You'll also need to verify the following details with the dealer or seller:
- The RV's purchase price
- Your down payment
- The amount to be financed
- A full description of the vehicle including year, make, model, engine type, Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) and any equipment included
