Welcome to JustAnswer,

So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you or does not fully answer your question, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

WebLaw :

Unfortunately if you do not make the payments on your motorhome, the lender may repossess the motorhome. After repossession, a judgment can be entered by the court for any amount of the loan that remains unpaid. This is called a deficiency judgment. The deficiency judgment can be used to execute on your other property and wages .

WebLaw :

If you have other debt "Just thinking about going further in the hole" you may want to consider filing a bankruptcy.

if i turn in motor home in good condition. what are the odds that they will come after more money?


Expert:  Ellen replied 5 years ago.
If you are not able to sell the motor home for the amount that you owe or more, the chances are excellent that the lender will not be able to resell the motor home at a price sufficient to pay off the loan. In such a situation it is extremely likely that the lender will pursue a deficiency judgment
