How do I finance a trailer?

You can try to finance a trailer through a local bank, but we don’t typically recommend that since so many banks do not offer trailer financing. If they will finance a trailer, the process is typically very slow. In our experience, the easiest way to finance a trailer is through Sheffield Financial. Sheffield Financial is the retail partner of most of the major trailer builders in the United States. They specialize in financing power sports, lawn equipment and trailers, with an emphasis on providing fast processing and being easy to work with. Sheffield is a division of Branch Banking & Trust Company, Member FDIC.

Step 1. Identify the trailer you want

If you don’t know which brand of trailer or model you want, we recommend looking at the trailer comparison guides on They will help you learn more about the product lines and how they compare to other trailers on the market.

Step 2. Price the Trailer

Before you apply for financing you need to know what your trailer will cost. To get a price on a PJ Trailer, you can use our dealer finder to contact a dealer or view their website for pricing.

Step 3. Loan Application

The easiest way to apply for a trailer loan is to visit and click on the big ‘Customer Application’ graphic on the home page. This loan application will ask you about the amount you would like to finance, the manufacturer of the trailer and the trailer type. It will also ask you to provide personal information like your contact info and monthly gross income.

After you enter you information, you will submit the form and Sheffield’s staff will review it. It typically takes around 10-15 minutes to get an email back letting you know if your loan was approved, which is exceptionally fast for trailer financing.
