A trailer ball hitch waits to be hooked up to a trailer.

There are some lenders that will consider you for trailer financing regardless of your credit history, including Capital Solutions, RockSolid Funding, RV Financing USA, Trailer Solutions Financial, BecksTrailerStore.com, and Worldwide Equipment Sales. We detail these options below.

Things to Consider Before Buying a Trailer

How to finance a trailer depends a great deal on your plans for the trailer. For example, if you’re planning to use your trailer for a business or work, getting approval will require different information than if you want to use the trailer for personal use. Also, there are a number of potential hidden costs associated with owning a trailer, and it’s important to consider them before you make a purchase.

If your credit isn’t very good and you’re starting a business, many lenders will require your business information, bank references, and/or collateral. If you’re planning to use your trailer for personal use, most lenders will require you to show proof of employment or sufficient monthly income.

In most cases, your car insurance will extend to your trailer for liability coverage. According to the DMV, you’re not legally required to get trailer insurance, but having it might be a good idea if you plan to use your trailer often. If you’re ever in an accident involving your trailer, your car insurance won’t pay for repairs to your trailer — or to replace the contents within it — without trailer insurance. This could be especially hard to recover from if you can’t afford to make repairs out of pocket and you’re worried you might not qualify for a personal loan to fix the damage.

Also, keep in mind that in most states you’re required to register your trailer with the DMV within 30 days of purchase. Registration fees are not usually covered by a loan or lease, so you’ll have to pay out of pocket. Each loan or lease may also have specific fees associated with it — beyond the annual percentage rate (APR). Before you agree to a financing plan, it’s a good idea to ask about any fees.
