Glossary of RV Loan Calculator Terms
Cash Price: This is the sticker price of the RV you intend to buy.
Term Length: This refers to the duration of your RV loan.
Payment Frequency: This determines how often you'll make payments. Biweekly means a payment every 2 weeks (26 payments per year), semi-monthly implies twice a month (24 payments per year), and monthly means once a month (12 payments per year).
Payment Estimate: This is the estimated payment amount at your chosen frequency.
Dealer Documentation or Admin Fee: This is the fee charged by RV dealers, defaulting to our partners' cost at Revival Powersports.
Lenders Fee Estimate: The initial setup, documentation or admin fee charged by lenders to register your loan. This defaults to an average cost based on our knowledge, but may vary.
Other Fees: Additional charges that are included in the loan, like private sale charges, government lien registration fees, upgrades, warranties, etc.
GST 5%: This federal tax auto-calculates based on the sticker price. Some lenders and dealers may also tax add-on products and service fees.
Total Amount to Finance: This is the estimated total principal amount of the RV loan.
Special Considerations: Provincial Taxes and Other Factors
While some lenders and dealerships may roll the Provincial Sales Tax (PST) into the trailer loan, if you're from another province, you might need to pay it directly to the registry. This is usually decided on a case-by-case basis.
Also, it's important to remember that all the figures provided by our RV loan calculator are estimated values and not exact. All information is subject to approval OAC.
