Midwest Leasing Inc. will finance park model rental units for Airstream Inc., Breckenridge, CrossRoads RV and Keystone RV Co., according to a news release from Fran Wickenhauser, president of Midwest Leasing Inc.

Midwest Leasing Inc. originated in Milwaukee in 1985, but is now headquartered in Crested Butte and Gunnison, Colo. Midwest Leasing will provide conventional financing, as well as structured financing to coincide with a campground owner’s seasonal cash flow on terms up to 60 months. “At the end of the financing term your campground owns the park models/rental units. We will finance park model/rental units, including freight, as well as other capital equipment related to your campground, throughout the United States and Canada,” he said.

Advantages of financing with Midwest Leasing Inc:

  • Will finance 100% of total purchase.
  • Allows you to finance other equipment for your campground.
  • Conserves cash resources for other priorities.
  • Allows for structuring of your payments to coincide with seasonal cash flow.
  • Allows you to pay for units as you are receiving revenue from their use.
  • Allows for the same tax benefits as if you had purchased the units.
  • Does not affect your bank line borrowing ability.

“We have been financing capital equipment for 25 years,” Wickenhauser said. “We have looked long and hard at the park model/rental unit marketplace and feel comfortable with the products from Thor Industries Inc. We are excited and optimistic about our ability to help campground owners in the U.S. and Canada who want to acquire park model/rental units, as well as other related equipment, for their campgrounds. Campground owners are finding that park model/rental units are providing two to five times as much income as a traditional RV site, so we think the time is right for us to enter the financing arena to help campground owners acquire these units.”
