If you are in the market for a new camping trailer, chances are Financing and Warranties have been on your mind.  Although shopping for your next vacation vehicle is very exciting… it can also be a little overwhelming. Whether you are looking at an Expedition 2.0, Pando 2.0 or one of the Switchback models, once you have decided on the trailer that best suits your needs it is time to start thinking about your finances and warranty options.  

Paying for your Off Grid Trailer 

When it comes to paying for your Off Grid Trailer there are multiple ways to facilitate the transaction with their own benefits and drawbacks. Some customers can pay outright with savings, other open a line of credit and many are able to finance the trailer through a financial institution allowing to spread the price over up to 20 years which leads to a low affordable monthly or bi-weekly payment. As there are multiple ways to pay for your trailer, it is important to look at each option and weigh the pros and cons of each method 

 

Paying in cash leads to no additional cost of borrowing the funds which is a great way to minimize the transaction cost of your new trailer. On the downside, spending your savings on a trailer can have long term costs as you may be able to earn a higher rate of interest with the money invested then the financing costs would be over the 20 years. It is also important to keep the importance of an emergency fund in mind when it comes to dipping into your savings.  

 

Another common option is using a line of credit or secured loan from your local financial institution. Generally, if you have a good relationship with your bank and a good credit score this option leads to a slightly lower interest rate then major financial institution. The downfall of these loans is the length of time you will be able to amortize the costs. With the shorter terms available you will have a much higher payment on a monthly or bi-weekly basis which can reduce your purchasing power when it comes to adding options and other goodies to your Off Grid Trailer. Some financial experts recommend leaving your line of credit available for emergencies rather then discretionary spending, which can be another downfall of this option 

 

One of the most common options to pay for your new Off Grid Trailer is to take advantage of financing available through major financial institution in terms of an RV Specific loan. Off Grid Trailers has partnered with TD Bank in Canada and New Coast Financial Services in the United States to help secure customers rates as low as 5%One key benefit of working with a financial institution, such as TD Bank or New Coast Financial is the availability of RV specific loans that can amortize the cost of your new trailer over up to 20 years, which significantly reduces your monthly or bi-weekly payment. The addition of TD Bank Financing in Canada and New Coast Financial Services in the United States in increasing the overall affordability and accessibility of our camping trailers. Off Grid Trailers has a team in place that can assist with the pre-approval process to get you camping no matter your budget.  

Off Grid Trailers Extended Warranty

Off Grid Trailers offers a limited 1-year warranty on all our Camping Trailers but some customers prefer a little more piece of mind. 


Off Grid Trailers has partnered with First Canadian Protection Plans in Canada and New Coast Financial Services in the United States to offer a variety of affordable extended warranty plans to fit your needs. You can extend your warranty from 1 year to 3 years and all the way up to 6 years from the date of purchase. Your new Off Grid Trailer comes with many creature comforts that are made up of several components which can eventually fail.

Through our extensive Extended Warranty Plans you can get support across North America no matter where you end up. The plans are flexible and allow you to increase or decrease your deductible depending on your comfort level. At Off Grid Trailers we want you to rest easy when you escape civilization and wake up in the wild.

Introducing the Off Grid Rebelles

Have you ever fallen in love?

I was sure that I would never come to adore off-road wheeling, but after a recent experience, I know that I was wrong in my assumption.

My name is Kelsey Pringle. While you probably haven’t heard of me, you might have seen me. I have appeared in the background of many Off Grid Trailers videos.

How did I come to take part in such an activity? I own a boutique marketing firm that has had the honor of working with Off Grid Trailers (OGT) for over two years now.

When my company first began working with OGT, I never would have identified myself as an “off-roader.” I loved nature and adventure, but wheeling just wasn’t my passion. I let the professionals have the real fun while I sat in the passenger seat.
