Question rv salvage?

Hello, this is Tom. My cousin and his wife have asked me to look into making disposition of their travel trailer. It is a 39 foot Sierra w/3 slideouts but is probably only good for salvage at this point as the roof above the shower has failed. From there the elements have taken over. The trailer is located in Myrtle Beach, SC. Any advise on how to go about moving on such a piece? Thanks in advance.

I'd just package it up, make sure nothing will blow off too badly, and drive it slowly to a junkyard.
Is that what you're wanting?

Or.... see if there is an RV salvage yard close by that would give you a fair/decent price for it.

Post it on Craig's List. Needs new home free, etc... Maybe put $500 on it. Might sell for parts.

List the damage up front. Maybe someone will tear it apart and rebuild it. A good handy person might take it. Who knows, the appliances might be worth something. Maybe somebody is rebuilding one and needs parts.

Now, if it is totally, totally gone, duck tape it together and pull it to a salvage place.
