RV wrecking yard

Anyone know of an RV wrecking yard. I am looking for a black tank that won't be used in an RV so it it can be from any kind of RV.

I see you are in WA. Try Northwest RV Supply in Eugene Oregon. Toll free at 866-678-7467.

You may also try and contact a local wrecker who is a member of an "parts link" association that they look on line for you.

If none of the above works try McKinney RV-Alabama RV Dealer, Red Bay AL, RV Service in Red Bay, AL. Theron has about anything you need, though he may not be inexpensive.

Yes, I agree about them having gold. I needed a bay door and found a picture of an rv with bay door in a burnt rig and called the business. I was told that a used door cost 650 and they would sell me the door to 325. I told them I could get a new door for 600 and bid them a good day. I wonder, at those prices, how they stay in business

Here to brag up my recent junkyard pick.

My MH has never had an awning on it - paid 6k for it and could not suck up the 1k cost of all new awning so I've been diggin around the net looking and the RV salvage places have lots to pick from but they know what new cost so they have your jewels in their hands. Anyway I was camping 2 weeks ago and remembered a junk yard nearby and took wife's Honda and drove it around the rusty metal infested dirt hole and found an old winnie with an old A&E Travel Awn 5000 hanging from the side of it. Found the scruffy old guy running the place and he quotes me $40 for all the hardware. Missing one pushbotton and one rafter release is missing the pretty cover piece but it works - fabric was cut but it was ugly and too short for the tube length anyway so who cares. This is one of the old school places that all the neighbors are trying to git rid of but he's still there collecting more junk everyday (God bless 'em). If anybody comes near N. MI it is on M88 between Mancelona and Bellaire. Now I have to break down and cough up $200-$300 for the fabric. Also looks like somebody had it apart before and the top castings seem to be mounted backwards?

FYI, Singleton RV Salvage has been closed for several years, I Don't think Gundie's handles RVs anymore.

If it is not going to be used in an RV, you could check at Tractor Supply. They have a variety of shapes and sizes in plastic tanks with various sizes of inlets and outlets.
