A Tucson, Ariz., online retailer sees a 2011 trend toward cash purchasing to continue into 2012. According to a release from used dealer Pedata RV Sales Center, buying consumers cite a variety of reasons for using cash for major purchases like recreational vehicles, including:
• Security: When paid in full there are no payments.
• Increased Buying Power: Some consumers indicate they felt that their buying power increases when they have cash in hand in comparison to purchasing with the use of financing.
Quicker Purchase: In many cases, a major purchase like an RV can be completed in a shorter amount of time when there are no financing needs. Financing often has temporary roadblocks and hurdles that must be dealt with and that often result in timing delays.
Gerard Pedata, owner of Pedata RV Center, said, “It isn’t necessarily a matter of not being able to obtain financing anymore. Many consumers paying cash have every opportunity to finance their RV purchase. They are using cash because they have recognized the benefits associated with a cash purchase.”
Tucson, Ariz.-based Pedata RV Center has introduced the “Fly and Buy” program for new RVers. According to a news release, the program “provides the cash many buyers need to get them to their new RV.”
“The only thing keeping many people from taking advantage of the extensive online inventory at Pedata RV Center is the fact that they don’t want to come up with out-of-pocket costs to fly or drive the distance to get to the recreational vehicle storage site,” said owner Gerard Pedata.
By using Pedata RV Center’s “Fly and Buy program,” new RVers can fly and pick up their new RV. Pedata said that people have come from all over the country and as far away as Japan.
“We have the best prices, the best customer service and a fantastic inventory,” he said. “And with the ‘Fly and Buy’ program we make it easier than ever for everyone to take full advantage of the Pedata RV Center program. The only fine print attached to this offer is that individuals using the ‘Fly and Buy’ program have to actually purchase a recreational vehicle.”
Pedata RV Center sells used RVs, travel trailers, fifth-wheels, campers and motorhomes and their full inventory is accessible online at http://www.pedatarvcenter.com.
