GOT JUNK??? Camper Junkyards???
« on: March 20, 2010, 11:55:58 AM »
Are there such a thing as a Camper\Pup junkyard? I need a side storage box door for my 2000 Bayside for a MOD I have in mind for my Portable A/C. Just seeing if anyone knows of one that is either on line or near Wisconsin.

I found a local fellow (Bedford, NH) last year that buys older junk Pups and turns them into utility trailers for sale.  He then puts the unused parts up on Craigslist.  When I went by his place, he had 6 or 7 stoves and electric converters, cushions, misc hardware, etc.  I ended up buying a table with the mounting bracket for $5 and a propane tank cover for $1.  Check your local Craigslist.  I'll bet someone near you is doing a similar side business.

try a google search for "rv scrap yards,  rv junk yards, used rv parts"  You should find something.

Here's a link I found a while ago that lists a bunch of them; I haven't looked at them recently, but maybe it will help:

That guy has a great idea, smellott. I wonder if I could get away with something like that too. I've often said that if I had room, I'd open an RV salvage yard, as there aren't any that I can find in this state. We only have an acre though, and I think DW would have some objections. I know where there are 2 likely candidates to be my first victims... er... projects... Both within walking distance of our house too.

You might try this place. Good People to deal with. I'd buy from them again. They are located between Joplin & Springfield,Mo. Wishbone-Ks

Wow, that's right in my backyard! I'll have to check that out. Don't suppose you have any contact info for him?

Was his name Terry by any chance?

I found him on Craigslist last year.  I believe his name is Adam.  He's off Back River Rd.  I've not seen any posts on CG from him in a while.  I'll dig through my email at home this weekend to see if I can find his email addy.

Wow. That almost literally is in my backyard. Within a mile or so, anyway...

Gumbias - there are bunches of salvage and used part places around the Elkhart IN area.  At an outing in Indiana a couple of years ago 'the guys' spent the better part of a day going from yard to yard, just looking.  Good times, good times.  [:D]
