Priority One adds marine industry to credit program

Priority One Financial Services, a division of Forest River Inc., expanded its credit card program for RV and cargo trailer dealers to the marine industry.

The Forest River Credit Card can be used on boat engines, parts, accessories, service repair bills and winterization, according to a story in RV Business.

Consumers can now enroll for the credit card to receive multiple financing options on marine products and services, along with exclusive offers, while also experiencing quick and easy approval processing, low monthly payments and no annual fees.

As with RV and trailer dealers, participating marine dealers will receive individual training that will help to maximize program benefits, an EZ transaction guide with step-by-step instructions for processing applications, sales through the online system and marketing assistance.

“The Forest River Credit Card program really took off for towable products, so it’s natural to move into assisting Forest River marine dealers as well,” Priority One business development director Jared Zimlin said in a statement.
