Caravans on finance

It is fair to say that the Covid pandemic revived a love of the New Zealand countryside and domestic holidays. Consequently, the cost of caravans has increased significantly with renovated older caravans and motorhomes available for up to NZ$20,000, good quality second-hand imports now cost between NZ$20,000 and NZ$40,000, with a new caravan setting you back anywhere between NZ$40,000 and NZ$100,000.

Akin to a car, a new brand new caravan could lose up to 20% of its value as soon as it is purchased. After that, the value of your caravan is likely to fall by up to 10% per annum. To maintain maximum value going forwards, ongoing repairs and maintenance are essential. A well-maintained caravan could last for 30 years and beyond.

the application process is straight forward and here at Crester Credit we are committed to finding the best caravan loan for you.

What is the maximum level of caravan finance?

Dependent upon suitable security, we can help clients buy caravans on finance up to a maximum of NZ$100,000. The greater the security, the more attractive the interest rate as the risk factor is reduced. As a responsible lender, we are aware of our obligations regarding sensible lending and will only provide affordable vehicle loans.

Here at Crester Credit, we provide caravan loans at rates between 13.95% and 26.98%, depending on your circumstances, credit history and the security you can provide. The rate is fixed for the entire term of the loan. This tends to be up to 3 years but can be extended in certain circumstances. If you’re a first time borrower please feel free to contact our finance specialists and we can discuss your circumstances and the best deal for you.

While there are some static caravans, most are mobile, which allows you to hitch them up to your vehicle and hit the highway. Whether you are looking to sample the country life for just a weekend, a few days or a couple of weeks, there are many options. You might be surprised if you compare and contrast the cost of an overseas holiday each year against what you would pay with caravan finance.

For many people, the beauty of a caravan is the fact that once you have acquired the caravan, that is the bulk of your long-term costs. Many people now see an investment in a caravan as a long-term alternative to often expensive international holidays, offering greater flexibility when it comes to taking a break at short notice
