Question What do i do with these items?

What does everyone do with the sleeper sofa, tiny recliner behind passenger, and dinette when they are removed and replaced with other furniture? They take a lot of space on my sun room, and wife says do something with them. Will i need them if i decide to sell the motorhome?

I found they made perfect filler items for our Garage Sale. And when the sale was over, they fit just perfect in the land Fill.

We have a similar situation with an L-shaped Flexsteel "Extend-a-Lounge" sofa that we removed from our Bounder. Since we have a couple of spare bedrooms with our kids grown, we simply stored the sofa in a spare room, thinking that if we ever sell or trade RVs we will put that back in the RV and take the new La-z-boy sofa out.

Now I have a new dinette table on order, so I will be adding the OE table to my "storage." I'm beginning to rethink that since having a room full of "junk" is beginning to get on my nerves.

Like the other posters have suggested, you can sell the stuff, give it away or trash it. If it's in good condition you can list items for sale on the iRV2 classifieds for free.

I'd save it for resale of the mh. what you might think as a great change other people might not. often people are looking for a certain floor plan for a reason.

Sarah,

Set it all up in one room and then you can pretend you are in the MH.

Isn't it mandatory to put those sort of items into storage and then pay $200 a month for the next 20 years and THEN throw it all out.

That sounds like a plan, Brian. Unfortunately, the room also has a treadmill, an eliptical machine, and other assorted exercise equipment that "someone" thought was a good idea. I seriously need to get rid of that stuff; it just makes me feel guilty.

If you can't sell it or don't want to bother trying to sell it the Salvation Army will send a truck to pick it up.
