How does voluntary repossession work on an RV in NC?

Instead of having it forcibly repossessed, you call your finance company and tell them you're voluntarily having it repossessed. They may send a tow service to collect it, or they may ask you to take it to the repossessor. It'll be repossessed, auctioned off, and the amount they get from the auction will be deducted from the amount you owe. The finance company may offer a settlement at that point for an amount less than what you owe on that vehicle - that's up to the finance company.

What happens to your credit when you give a car back to the bank?

You are not giving it back to the bank, you are having your car voluntarily repossessed. It ruins your credit for 7 years. Which may sound like a bad thing, but in reality will keep you from buying more car than you can afford for the next 7 years, which is a good thing. Remember if you do this, you will still be responsible for the difference in what the bank sells the car for, and the balance on the loan.

In Virginia can a credit company repossess your car and still demand the money owed above the value of the car?

When your car is repossessed, they sell it for what they can get. Value has nothing to do with what price it brings. They simply get what they can. You are then responsible for the difference in the amount they sell the car for and the balance on the note. Your credit is then ruined for 7 years. This is why having a car repossessed is a horrible idea, and should be a last resort.
