Our members may select from the following Consumer loan types:
New automobiles or used, you will find us competitive with any other financial institution.
For NEW CARS, we will lend up to 110% of the MSRP for a maximum of 84 months. Program cars are treated as new cars as long as a new car warranty is available.
For USED CARS, we lend according to the NADA retail value. We subscribe to the NADA automobile valuation system and will be happy to supply you with average retail and trade-in costs of the vehicle you are interested in.
Share-secured loans are the least expensive way to borrow. You may use the amount in your base savings account as collateral for a loan. Since the loan is fully collateralized, we charge an extremely low rate of interest.
Overdraft protection is a line of credit that is attached to your checking account. You may use the credit line at any time by simply writing a check for more than you have in your checking account. We will honor the check for up to the maximum of your credit limit. What a wonderful way to write your own loan any time you need it! There is no service fee for overdraft protection. You only pay interest on any outstanding loan balance.
We have a number of other secured loan types available:
- Mobile Home loans (Must have land included. No rented lots or parks accepted.)
- Motor Home loans
- Motorcycle loans
- RV loans
- Boat loans
Our members may select from the following Home loan types:

HOME EQUITY LOANS
For members who already own a home, you may qualify for a low interest, low cost, variable rate home equity loan. The loan is secured by the equity in your home. A maximum credit line is established and you may draw funds as you desire. Usually, the interest on a Home Equity Loan is tax deductible but check with your tax advisor to be sure. Funds may be used for any purpose such as a new car, college tuition, bill consolidation, home improvements and more.
Based on your creditworthiness your rates and terms may vary, see RVCU for all the details.
