Considerations When Buying A Camper Trailer
When looking to purchase a camper trailer, it can be very confusing. Especially if it’s your first time. So many brands and so many styles and different layouts. Just to throw some in the mix , forward folds, rear folds, hard floors, soft floors & roof tops. And when you add all the accessories, the list is endless.
Before heading out to look at options, you will need to think about:
How many people need a bed
Will you buy new or used?
Where do you want to take it , meaning off grid or to caravan parks
What do you have to tow with, your vehicle
Your budget and finance pre-approval if needing or wanting to borrow
Camper Trailer finance is easy , quick and can be approved well before any delivery date. Generally speaking Camper Trailers fit into most people’s budget and if you have a good financial history it should be easy to apply and be successful in getting a loan for your trailer.
In addition to thinking about your loan, you will also want to think about insurance. With regards to camper trailer insurance, it is very important to do some research. There are a number of insurers who will promise you all sorts of benefits to get your hard-earned cash. Do your research and ask lots of questions to find the best option.
Features & Benefits
When purchasing your dream unit you have two options, either finance the asset or pay cash. Ultimately, only you can make the final choice based on your current financial circumstances. But there are a few key considerations for both options.
Borrowing to buy
There are many reasons why you might choose to take out a loan for your camper trailer purchase. With record low rates, money has never been cheaper and borrowing money allows you to keep your cash in the bank for a rainy day.
If you tailor and manage the loan correctly it will cost you minimal interest. And of course, if you don’t have the cash to buy upfront then a loan is going to be your only option.
Obviously when purchasing your camper trailer, you use your own savings. This allows you to avoid paying loan interest which is a major benefit, even if it will be minimal in comparison to years gone by.
You still need to keep your credit rating going especially if you haven’t borrowed in years or if you are just starting out. Then there is always the option to partially fund, keep some in the bank and borrow a portion of the amount needed.
Factors Affecting Interest Rates
If you choose to finance your camper trailer purchase, these are the main factors that will affect the interest rate on your loan:
The amount you want to borrow
Your current financial profile
The age of the unit
Previous borrowing history
If you are asset backed
To find out the best rate you can get, speak to a Credit One broker.
There are three types of loans, Secured, Unsecured and Business
- A secured loan is basically a consumer loan (in personal names) where the actual asset, being the caravan camper trailer or motorhome is used as collateral against the loan. Credit One has access to over 40 different financiers who use the asset as security. This type of loan attracts the very best interest rates on the market.
- An unsecured loan is a personal loan. There is no security held against the asset and for that privilege, the interest rate will always be higher. These types of loans are generally for assets that may not fit the normal criteria of a secured loan set by the financiers, an example of that would be the age of the camper trailer.
- If you wish to borrow money to purchase the asset and have it in the business name, this can be done and is a regular form of lending at Credit One. There is specific criteria that need to be met with regards to your business and how long it has been operating for.
Calculating Your Repayments
Before taking out a camper trailer loan, you will want to get an estimate of your regular repayments. The repayments will be determined by the loan amount, interest rate, payment frequency and other factors.
A Credit One finance broker will be able to give you an accurate rate and loan repayment figure number based on your circumstances.
But if you just want to get a quick estimate, you can use our loan repayment calculator. This is perfect if you want to get a rough estimate in just two minutes.

The short answer is, if you are borrowing money to purchase the unit, insurance is mandatory. However, by law it is not illegal to have your camper un-insured. But you run the risk of not getting your unit repaired or replaced in the event of an insurance related incident.
Camper Trailer insurance costs will depend on a number of things, including, the costs of the unit, the age of the unit, where and how the unit will be stored. One brand from the other will not be a consideration when formulating the policy premium.
