Frequently Asked Questions

This is a list of questions that we get asked most often and the answer that we give for each. Look here for answers to your questions. If you don't see your issue addressed here, please send an email to bdc@panpacificrv.com 

Q. Why don't all the sale prices show on the RVs?
A. Some manufacturer's don't allow sale prices to be advertised. We list the advertised sale price when possible. Always email or call for the best price!
   
Q. How long does it take to approve my loan?
A. It depends on your credit history. It can take anywhere from a few hours to a few days.
   
Q. How long can I finance my RV for?
A. That depends on several things. The type and cost of the RV and your credit rating are the two biggest factors. Banks generally offer longer terms on RVs depending on the amount you are financing. Please email or call the dealership or your salesperson for the rate and terms available on your prospective purchase.
   
Q. Do you take trade-ins?
A. Yes, we give top dollar on trade-ins. We also purchase used units.
   
Q. What if I still owe a balance on my trade-in?
A. We can facilitate your loan payoff and put your new loan in place at the same time.
   
Q. Can I tow a trailer with my current vehicle?
A. Sure. People tow trailers with motorcycles. The real question is how large of a trailer can you tow. We will evaluate your tow vehicle to make sure you purchase a trailer that is safe for you to tow. We also have brake and hitch equipment available for installation.
   
Q. Why do I have to pay separately for Dealer Prep and what does it cover?
A. All dealers charge Dealer Prep. They either disclose it upfront or hide it in the price you are paying for your trailer. Dealer Prep includes everything we do to get your unit Road Ready for you. Including your battery(s), a full propane tank, a full gas tank on Motorhomes, cleaning of the unit inside and out, a full systems and safety check, and a detailed orientation by one of our Certified RV Technicians the day you come to take your unit home to ensure you know how everything works.
   
Q. Do you take consignments?
A. Due to limited space, we can only take a few consignments. If you have a clean late model RV for sale, please email the year, make, model, and condition along with a couple of pictures to bdc@panpacificrv.com along with you name and phone number. Someone will get back to you.
   
Q. What is GVWR?
A. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. This is the maximum amount your vehicles can weigh including passengers and cargo.
   
Q. What is GAWR?
A. Gross Axle Weight Rating. This is the maximum amount of weight that can be placed on an axle. This assumes the weight is evenly distributed on both wheels.
   
Q. What is UVW?
A. Unladen Vehicle Weight. This is the amount the vehicle weighs empty. With motorized, it often assumes a full load of fuel and all required fluids. Check your manual to be sure.
   
Q. What is payload?
A. That is the difference between the GVWR and the UVW. Payload has to account for passengers, gear, fresh water, grey water, propane, food, lawn chairs, awning, air conditioner, etc.
   
Q. What is GCWR?
A. Gross Combined Weight Rating. This is the maximum amount that the tow vehicle and the trailer can weigh combined. Remember that includes payload. Also remember that the GCWR may be lower that the combined GVWR ratings.
   
Q. What is a Class A Motor home?
A. These are conventional motor homes constructed directly on medium-duty truck chassis which include the engine and drive train components. Class A motor homes are usually taller and tend to have more storage.
   
Q. What is a Class B Motor home?
A. Class B motor homes are generally made from a van body. They sometimes have fiberglass extensions added to provide more headroom. The difference between a van conversion and a class B Motor Home is that a Motor Home will have cooking and toilet on board where a van conversion is usually just sleeping.
   
Q. What is a Class C Motor home?
A. A class C or 'Minnie' motor home is built on a van or pickup chassis, without the van body. The body is added by the motor home manufacturer. A class C motor home is usually not as tall, not as wide, and sometime shorter than a class A. The distinguishing feature of a class C vs a class A is the cab over construction that a class C has.
